This gallery had me at illusion lace, but what put it over the top was this floral kissed braid. OBSESSED! For this rural inspiration is desert chic done right. The ultimate pairing of elegance with boho chic details, The Blooming Bud blossoms, and one gorgeous backdrop, Lucy Munoz captured it all for you to see in The Vault!

From Lucy Munoz
…We took to Joshua Tree National Park to create this amazing inspired bridal shoot. Surrounded by prickly and twisted Joshua trees, plus two deserts (the Colorado and Mojave, which meet right at Joshua National Park) made us feel like we were in such a glorious place! It’s no wonder people come here year after year. Our gorgeous gowns were by Sarah Seven and Xcite. We wanted a day to evening look and something that complemented the surroundings. We started off with the white Sarah Seven that looked amazing against the boulders. At dusk we transitioned to the black sheer evening gown by Xcite. We loved how it mimicked the twisted prickly branches of the Joshua trees. The Blooming bud’s gorgeous floral creations stopped us right in our tracks! She did both the altar and centerpieces that made us jump for joy. Sweet layers created the most spectacular cake with the most perfect hues of blues and golds. Megan Kelso created the beautiful invitation suite that complemented our whole look. In the end we lingered and lingered well after the light disappeared–It was so hard to say goodbye.

I think Joshua Tree is one of those spots if I went to visit, there would be no returning to the East Coast for me! When Flashpoint Grafix sent over this desert stunner infused with natural beauty, personality and a killer backdrop, it was love at first sight. A New Creation Flowers & Gifts created amazing single-bloom maid’s bouquets and the bride planned and designed the rest of the ultra-hip 29 Palms Inn soirée. Meet me in the gallery for so much more.

From Flashpoint Grafix… This couple is from Venice Beach, California — nearly the polar opposite to Twentynine Palms. The ceremony was at the Blessed Sacrament Church, the after-ceremony shoot was at Joshua Tree National Park, and the reception was held at The 29 Palms Inn. Joy has great creative vision. In her planning, she created another world for her guests, using Polaroid snapshots for the guestbook, DIY spanning pendants, a mirror chandelier, pink flamingos and potted cacti for souvenirs. All the out-of-towners got an extra special treat as the sun went down and left behind a clear, star-filled sky — a memory that’s hard to duplicate with so many city lights. Matt is a DJ, so naturally he brought a couple of his team to create the vibe, and he even planned a DJ set for himself in dedication to his new bride.
