A Gem at Joshua Tree National Park

This venue is ideally situated to capture magnificent mountain and desert valley views while it's unique architecture and design lends to the feeling of being a "hacienda" or "outpost" in the rough high desert landscape. Featuring both indoor & outdoor rooms & spaces, this intimate setting is ideal for elegantly rustic weddings and events for up to 130 people.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Joshua Tree National Park is exactly one mile up the road (1.61km). Hailed as one of the world's natural wonderlands, this vast desert park of over one million acres spans two great desert ecosystems, the Colorado and the Mojave, and hosts the most famous Joshua Tree forest in the world. Originally championed in the 1930's by famed socialite and environmentalist, Minerva Hoyt and Landscape Architect Frederick Law Olmstead (designer of New York City's Central Park), this spectacular desert wilderness, with it's monumental granite rocks and fabulous wild and plant life, including many endangered species, has become Southern California's premier destination for nature lovers, hikers, climbers, and those who want to rejuvenate in what Ansel Adams referred to as "The sanity of nature."
Referred to as sustainable or green building; sustainable because straw is plentiful and usually burned or tilled under each year, and green because it conserves our valuable forests and is a superior non-toxic insulation. The walls, stuccoed outside and earth plastered inside have an adobe-like feel. They are wide and flexible yet dense and air tight, lending to greater performance in earthquakes and have recently proven to fare better in fire than wood frame structures. Setting fire to a stawbale wall has been compared to lighting a match to a phone book; the density doesn't allow air flow. One might think rodents would enjoy living in our straw walls. Not so; unlike haybale, there is no food value in strawbale and once again there is no air to breath.
Standout Venue Features:
The Park can be explored by car, bicycle, horseback, foot, or from commercial plane hired from the Joshua Tree Airport. It offers countless trails, camping and day sites for picnicking, carefully preserved wilderness areas for registered exploration, and rock climbing for all levels of skill and endurance. Guided tours of some sites require reservations.

Maybe it’s the isolation amidst the grandiosity of the mountains, or maybe it’s all those bizarre-o looking Joshua Trees, but there’s something about the desert that is – let’s all say it in unison here – pure magic. While Palm Springs is popular for its cool boutique hotels and trendy restaurants, the quiet stillness of nearby Joshua Tree is one epic setting for a destination wedding that’ll have you and your guests feeling like you’re the only people left on the planet.

Whoever’s idea it was to lug a bunch of telescopes, a badass DJ, a slew of vegan tacos, and a whole party crew out to the desert in Joshua Tree, we salute you. Oh, wait. It was the brilliant minds at Moxie Bright Events, of course. Lucky for us, photographer Andria Lo was willing to give us a little insider info on this incredible desert wedding affair. Magic is certainly one word you could use to describe this one.
