Cute Elopement at Cactus Joe’s | Taylored Photo Memories

Cactus Joe's | Little Vegas Wedding

For East Coast couple Zay and Dean, a Vegas elopement was just the thing. Hosting a small guest list inside of the quaint chapel at Cactus Joe’s Nursery was everything they dreamed of. It captured their relaxed earthy vibe in amazing surroundings and even had enough room to host a Champagne toast after.

To say the chapel at Cactus Joe’s is unique is an understatement. Located on the edge of town where streets and desert mesh, this working garden center has an amazing array of desert plants and animals … and the cutest damn chapel I’ve seen in Vegas so far. It’s one-of-a-kind in a town full of incredible venues.

McKenzi, Zay and Dean’s wedding photographer fills us in on the mood there:

Distressed wooden accents and decorative metal surrounded the wedding chapel where vows were exchanged and fewer than 20 guests witnessed this intimate event at sunset. Zay’s choices of subtle gold accents with white made a statement, from her bridal headpiece and fingernail polish all the way to the couple’s wedding favors: dreamcatchers, made by the bride.

Himalayan Pink Salt Desert Wedding Inspiration | Taylored Photo Memories

Pink Desert Wedding Inspiration | Little Vegas Wedding

The New Age flair for this styled shoot takes its inspiration from a gorgeous pink mineral: rose quartz, as well as Himalayan pink salt. Paired with succulents, local botanicals and geometric shapes the adorable tiny chapel at Cactus Joe’s Blue Diamond Nursery takes on a modern feel.

You’ll find many wonderful ideas to take away from this post including boutonnieres made of minerals, eco-friendly favors and the subtle southwestern styling with a touch of vintage glam.

More from the stylist, Amy, of Design in Mind Events: 

With the popularity of Himalayan salt rocks appearing in cooking recipes as well as home decor, it was a wonderful opportunity to implement the natural mineral source in a wedding setting.The soft luminescent glow of peach and pink from the rocks exemplifies the mood of a desert sunset. With the color palette of pink, peach, champagne and gold, we wanted to incorporate the adorable pink chapel located on the premises! Simple rentals such as champagne linens, gold flatware and pink depression glass adds a pop of romance to the natural desert setting.

To minimize the wedding-carbon-footprint, blooming cacti were placed in rose quartz votive rocks and only a few sprigs of blooms were used to enhance the centerpieces. For the ceremony decor, various sizes of Himalayan salt rocks and succulents were used to line the aisle while strands of rose quartz were used as a backdrop.

When purchasing decor for the big day, keep in mind of how it can be used once the wedding is over. For instance, the salt rocks can be gifted to your bridal party and family members who helped with the wedding. The salt rock lamp can be used inside the home or you can remove the cord and bulb for outside use on the patio or garden.

Besides the DIY rose quartz curtain used as the ceremony backdrop, other DIY elements showcased in the shoot were the rose quartz bridal hair piece, the groom’s rose quartz boutonniere and rose quartz place setting wrap for the sweetheart table. We hope this shoot ignites some fresh ideas for those who are looking to plan either a desert, southwestern, eco-friendly, DIY, or just a simply pink palette themed wedding.
