Here at Intimate Weddings, we’re obsessed with all things desert-related. Cacti, hot sand, sunny skies; what’s not to love? It’s no wonder, of course, that many couples are opting for desert weddings- especially in the winter months.

Whether you want to tie the knot at an offbeat ceremony in Joshua Tree, or say your “I dos” surrounded by the red rocks of Arizona, desert weddings are perfect for couples who love unique attractions, stunning scenery and warm weather.

From intimate desert elopements to rustic chic Joshua Tree nuptials, these dreamy desert weddings are sure to inspire.
