There is something about a desert wedding that just makes us giddy. Desolate landscape no more, deserts are full of style and elegance, especially with your beautiful wedding happening in it. We love the clean and bright backdrop of the simple landscape, the interesting textures of cracked mud and sand dunes, and don’t get us started about those blues and golds of sage and wild grasses. From minty green succulents, rosy pink dresses and deep red flowers, view photos from 20 weddings filled with the kinda free-spirited magic that only happens in the desert.
