Mojave Victorian Desert Wedding

Okay, I cannot get over how ridiculously cool this wedding from Made U Look Photography is. To start, the couple married in Death Valley National Park which made for some truly breathtaking images that I just can't seem to take my eyes off of!

From the bride, Amanda: "We definitely wanted a vintage feel of some type. I’ve always been fascinated with the Victorian era and style, so I decided to incorporate some Victorian elements into the wedding. The desert theme was just natural since the wedding was taking place in the Mojave desert inside Death Valley National Park. Combining these two “themes” turned out to be kismet because settlers and miners began populating this area in the Victorian times and mining boomtowns were springing up all over the desert! We also wanted things to look rustic, to reflect the desert’s rugged history."

Intimate Mazama Ranch House Wedding

Small, intimate weddings always pull at my heart strings. Especially when you throw in a multi-day celebration that gives family and friends the opportunity to relax and really get to know one another. For my special day I dreamed of a "get-away" type experience for my loved ones, so as you can imagine this perfectly low key wedding from Jagger Photography has me swooning big time.

The beautiful couple choose Mazama Ranch House in northern Washington as their venue.  For three days guests enjoyed lawn games, a fire pit for late night s'mores, and a character filled old barn for the couples reception.  I just love how personal this wedding is!
