It’s all in the details at this wedding inspiration shoot in Anza Borrego desert. It’s the kind of shoot that makes you feel like you can run away and survive off of love alone. The desert location isn’t far outside of San Diego, California, but it has the essence of a far off place. Hints of sparkle on the bride’s gown, shoes, and ring reflect the warm desert sun and bring touches of glam to the earthy, natural setting. Pops of dusty blue and soft orange stand out against the backdrop, but also complement it. Beyond these few florals and the fashion, little else was needed to create something beautiful and inspiring for brides to-be.

The vast, neutral landscape and golden light in the Anza Borrego desert made the perfect backdrop for this dusty blue and earthy springtime wedding inspiration shoot. Making sure not to take away too much from the stunning simplicity of the location, I decided to stick with neutral and pastel color palette. Amanda of Events By Condie created a whimsical bridal bouquet with white and toffee roses, light blue delphinium, and rich greenery, paired with a dusty blue silk ribbon from Tono & Co. I chose a stunning tulle and rhinestone embroidered dress from Lulus for the bride to wear, incorporating a little bit of glam and bling, while beautifully capturing the delicate desert breeze. The hair and makeup artist, Renee Rhoads, achieved a soft, romantic makeup look and hairstyle, creating a timeless look for our bride. Nicole of Nicole Alonso Studio designed a custom minimalistic invitation suite with hand drawn natural elements. The soft hints of blue paired effortlessly with the distant blue-tinted mountains in the background. The images were taken on medium format film, and scanned by Goodman Film Lab.
