California desert venues we love

The desert is always appealing. The warm tones, mystical air, and mysterious landscapes as a backdrop, the California desert has everything to offer for free spirited minds and weddings. Joshua Tree, in particular, has captured our interest with its majestic scenery. The fact that it's only a half day road trip or a quick flight away from the Bay Area make us even more ready to jet down there. Take a peek at our round up of venues that are currently inspiring us.

Le Haute Desert Aerie, Yucca Valley

Le Haute Desert Aerie offers a breath taking setting for weddings. Every nook features a visual adventure in Morroccon, Indian & Tibetan aesthetics. With just 30 minutes from Palm Springs airport, it's so easy to get to, yet feel tucked away from the rest of the world. (Photos via 100 Layer Cake)


The Ruin, Pioneertown

The Ruin in Pioneertown, California - where a forgotten house transforms into a private, rustic outdoor venue. It's an enchanting space with remainders of an old miners house with stone walls and floors which brings a more intimate vibe to an outdoor event. (Photos via Green Wedding Shoes)

29 Palms Inn, Twentynine Palms

29 Palms Inn is situated on the 9,000 year old Oasis of Mara and surrounded by the vast Mojave Desert looking up to Joshua Tree National Park. Their unique rustic charm and amenities are perfect for catering and hosting small and large groups (up to 150). (Photos via Green Wedding Shoes)

We hope you'll be dreaming of a desert wedding as much as we hope to create and design one!
