Funny story….this amazing elopement shoot with a hint of Valentine’s was captured in the Joshua Tree National Park , Arizona. Lifestyle blogger Caitlin and her love Mark had originally planned a romantic lakeside mountain shoot at Lake Arrowhead with Hannah of Annabeth Photography.  On the morning of the shoot, the weather decided it just wasn’t coming out to play, it rained and rained.

So they jumped in the car, headed down the mountain and drove till they found sunshine….all the way down in the valley at The Joshua Tree National Park. The images and the setting is just wow, wow, wow incredible!!!

Caitlin wore our River gown and looks epic alongside Mark, who is very handsome in his suit. They look like a couple of film stars. Caitlin had beautiful bespoke flower elopement ring, flower cuff and bouquet by Wild Flowers at the Lake, the red of the blooms is stunning in contrast to the desert tones. We love her Stetson too! Brides in hats are rocking it at the moment.

These two are so smitten with each other, I love the way Mark is so sweet making sure Caitlin’s hat doesn’t blow away in the desert wind and that lovely kiss on the forehead. It’s what it’s all about.
