Destination Desert Wedding


Recently Rocky Mountain Bride shared a Geometric Utah Desert Wedding Inspiration designed and photographed by Jessica E Photography, and we fell in love with it’s rich colors and unique design. For this styled shoot, Jessica “decided to run down to Southern Utah and shoot in some random Joshua trees that was literally right off the highway.” The views are breathtaking and pair perfectly with the gorgeous greenery garlands and a lush desert inspired bouquet (featuring our “always in bloom” artificial florals) by floral designer Becky, of Southern Blossoms Floral. Learn more…


When I was asked to be apart of this gorgeous shoot I was all in!  I had an idea of what I was going to do and what it was going to look like.  


Then I was told that we would be using faux flowers!  I was a tad nervous…


I had never used faux flowers for a shoot before and was blown away with the artificial flowers offered at  I found everything I needed to fulfill our vision.  


The flowers and greenery were beautiful and easy to work with.


Many people have looked at the photos of these flowers and never guessed they weren’t fresh.


I made some garlands with greenery.  I have used them numerous times since, and honestly don’t know why I didn’t think of using them sooner.
