I know I will look back at 2016 as the year that this born-and-raised New Yorker fell in love with Joshua Tree. Lauren & Andrew’s super intimate elopement was the second of five events Moxie Bright Events planned in the desert last year. What can I say? When I fall in love, I fall hard!
Lauren & Andrew live in New Zealand and have been together for ten years. They were planning a holiday (that’s a “vacation” to us) to America to see a lot of sights (Yosemite, Los Angeles, and San Francisco were all on their itinerary) and decided to sneak away and tie the knot in beautiful Joshua Tree.
On their wish list: A cool hotel, fantastic photographs, a bottle of California wine, delicious cupcakes, an intimate dinner for two, and…to get married.
They started their day at Ace Hotel Palm Springs. Lauren got beautified by Chelsea Nicole while Andrew got dressed.
Here we are going over the details of the day!
Andrew & Lauren helped each other into their stylish duds, and then enjoyed the unique design of the Ace.
Look at these two! Have you seen a more stylish couple? I’m obsessed with this photo.
And in the lobby, Andrew serenaded his soon-to-be wife with a song. Adorable!
Felisa from Of the Flowers created this amazing bouquet using the desert sands as the color palette and inspiration.
Love the rings, love this shot. Love, love, love!

Lauren & Andrew, Joe and I are forever grateful that we got to share your wedding day – and what a day it was! I wish for you a life of continuing adventure, tons of love, and so much laughter!
