Cactus Moon Retreat Wedding | Joshua Tree CA | Megan and Jade


I’ll never get over Megan and Jade’s incredible destination wedding at Cactus Moon Retreat.

These two traveled across the world, from Australia, to have the boho desert wedding of their dreams. Cactus Moon Retreat was the perfect backdrop, surrounded by the amazing Joshua Tree Desert.

Joshua Tree has always been a sentimental place to this pair, and it was so incredible to see their wedding dream be brought to life by Wild Heart Events in surrounded by the gorgeous desert landscape. Cactus Moon Retreat’s layout was perfect for Megan, Jade + their closest 30 people to spend the evening under the stars.

From the bride:

Ever since we got engaged we pretty much knew we wanted to have our wedding in Joshua Tree. It’s such a special, magical place. However, seeing as we live in Australia it wasn’t as easy as that. We considered eloping by ourselves but we really wanted our nearest and dearest to be with us on our day. We decided to put the idea out and everyone supported it so we started planning! The hardest part was having to book everything without actually seeing it in person…that’s why we enlisted the help of Jaime + Erika of Wild Heart Events to bring our vision to life. After A LOT of emails and mood-boarding, the styling/design turned out better than we could’ve ever expected. It was so exciting to see it all come together on the day!”

It was such an incredible honor to be apart of Megan and Jade’s day at Cactus Moon Retreat, thank you two so much for having me. Hope you enjoy these images as much as I do- are we going to be pinning these for Boho Inspiration forever? Yes, yes yes.

Incredible vendors listed at the finish. You can also check out their Green Wedding Shoes feature HERE.
