The desert provides panoramic views of palm trees, mountains, and stunning sunsets. The unique terrain of red rock formations, sandy dunes, and cacti offer the best real-life backdrop for a desert wedding. In addition, the warm day and cool night climates from October through April make the desert a great outdoor option. The desert and its incredible scenery is the perfect recipe for an off-the-grid private and intimate wedding with low precipitation predictability, bright stars, and plenty of sunshine.
The landscape’s neutral tones and the greens from cacti and succulents made the perfect color palette and were my source of inspiration for this wedding stationery suite. The arts and crafts of Southwest US Indian artists illuminated by the characteristic woven blankets and Pueblo pottery provided me with inspiring geometric patterns.
