Soft, feminine shades of blush pink grace today’s whimsical wedding inspiration captured by Taylored Photo Memories. With the help from event designer, Design in Mind Events, and a talented lineup of vendors, a desert hideaway was transformed into a magical wedding oasis accented with soft pink Himalayan salt rocks, & rose quartz (also known as the” Love Stone”).
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 rocks soft luminescent glow of peach and pink exemplifies the mood of a desert sunset. What better place than Las Vegas, one of our country’s major desert cities, to capture the styled shoot!
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.
Besides the DIY rose quartz mobile used for 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.
Cactus Joe’s Blue Diamond Nursery is a true gem in the rough! The venue can accommodate weddings both small and large with several unique spots for a ceremony and reception. With the color palette of pink, peach, champagne and gold, we wanted to incorporate the adorable pink chapel located on the premises!
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.
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. All the best to you and happy planning!
