Although the Anza Borrego Desert may not share San Diego’s mild temperatures, its beautifully twisting canyons and caves cannot be replicated. South of the California 78 lies a dreamlike canvas—Fish Creek Wash—where neutral rock formations provide the perfect opportunity for bold tints and textures to be styled with.
The trail’s natural terrain inspires simple attire for both the bride and groom. We love the bride’s casual ensemble: a thin strapped gown, dangling crystal pendant, and no shoes. The groom’s bolo tie and feathered boutonnière spice up a classic blue suit.
A chic macramé backdrop and fabulous feather details enhance the location’s minimalistic aura as sultry red florals and furniture promise to leave guests speechless. Blush-colored roses are scattered throughout and pull together the wash’s sandy color and floors.
Events Inspired features an extravagant cocktail setup, courtesy of Snake Oil Cocktail Co., which allots newlyweds time to tip back a few drinks and spend quality time with their guests. The pink “Nopal Margarita” and iced “Desert Rose” tipple are sure to please!
Embellishments or not, Fish Creek Wash is a hidden geological wonderland that ensures complete privacy on your special day. The landscape, which took over 20 million years to form, is the perfect destination to promise “forever” to your partner.
