There’s a phenomena in the desert that only happens every once in a while, a moment when thin clouds sprinkle tiny drops of rain at the very same moment that the sun’s rays glisten through them. It’s one of the most breathtaking natural performances the desert puts on for us, and when it happens, the air smells fresh and crisp, and everything is just a little more magical. So when it happened this weekend, we soaked it all in. It couldn’t have been more fitting for the desert to put on one of its best shows for Gloria and Josh’s wedding day, as if the whole world was celebrating the two becoming one.

This was our last full wedding of 2014, and we’re so thankful we got to finish off the year with these two. We really couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up an incredible year. Gloria & Josh are such a beautiful couple, inside and out. They are sweet, soft-spoken, kind, and they were the epitome of calm, no mater what the unpredictable desert weather threw their way. There is such a quiet serenity about these two, and their wedding day was absolutely breathtaking in every way. Gloria embodied all the grace and style of Old Hollywood glamor, like a modern day Rita Hayworth, Ginger Rogers and Greta Garbo, all wrapped up into one, and Josh, looking so handsome and in love, couldn’t keep his eyes off of her. And who can blame him? This was one for the books! We absolutely loved spending the day at El Chorro and working with the insanely talented Sara’s Garden, whose work had us practically drooling all day long! This was such a perfect way to end the year, and we’re so excited to share a few of our favorites with you today!
