Dream Desert Wedding Joshua Tree, CA | Andrew + Chelsea

This Dream Desert Wedding in Joshua Tree, California was just unreal!


My love story with Andrew and Chelsea started 3 years ago. I reached out to them when I was first starting because I thought they were the cutest couple! A week after that shoot, Andrew proposed to Chelsea! A few short weeks after that, they hired me for their wedding on the most popular date of the century – 10/10/2020. I was over the moon stoked and still can’t believe how lucky I am to have met these people!

Throughout those couple years between their for fun shoot, and their wedding we became best of friends. We spent a weekend together in Vegas for my birthday, 2020 new year partying in downtown San Diego, countless double dates, many desert trips to see their work at the venue (that they built?!?) and a ton more shoots between!!!

Okay now, let’s talk about the venue!! First off, they built their wedding venue themselves and it is UNREAL. They even had Joshua trees put in to make the place that much more insane!!! A + C live right on the property they got married at and every single part of their wedding was special to them. They spent so much time in those couple years making sure the day was perfect and it was just that. These two truly love each other like no other and it shows so fluently throughout their life.

When their wedding day finally came, I was so excited! Chelsea and the bridesmaids all got ready together and wore the cutest mismatched bridesmaids dresses that were silk, midi slip dresses!! Andrew and the groomsmen wore western-inspired outfits with bolo ties, cowboy hats, and cowboy boots! It matched the desert Joshua tree vibe perfectly!!

Andrew and Chelsea’s ceremony was stunning. They exchanged the sweetest vows and were full of laughter and tears the entire time! After the ceremony, Andrew and Chelsea drove to the reception in the most fun getaway car! It was a vintage orange Volkswagen bus with their just married sign on the back! We ran around the desert a little bit and got the cutest bride and groom photos with the bus and next to the Joshua Trees!

The reception was just so much fun!! The party went on all night filled with lots of tequila and dancing!! Everyone ended the night on the dance floor & I could not think of a better way to end it.

This Dream Desert Wedding in Joshua Tree was a day I will never forget!! I am so glad I met Chelsea and Andrew, and to be able to capture this day for them!!
