Amazing Vintage Joshua Tree Camping Wedding
We spent about a year before the wedding looking in thrift stores for rugs, old canvas tents, low coffee tables, candle vases, and oil lamps. Christie found a large bolt of flower print fabric at a garage sale and used it to sew the table linens. She also hand poured all of the pyramid-shaped candles using recycled thrift store pillar candles. We constructed our own foot pump operated hand washing sink to make sure everything stayed sanitary in a location with no running water. We used reusable silicone stemless wine glasses for our cocktails, which the guests were able to take home as favors.
So many others helped us in small and big ways. Christie’s brother constructed the copper arch, Ryan’s brother and sister made the signage and helped with a lot of the decor. A family friend made all of our cookies and Christie’s mom made a Hawaiian wedding cake.
Our dear friend Serena played the organ for us down the aisle and our friend Claudia officiated. Literally nothing would have worked if it weren’t for everyone stepping in and helping with the details.
