Desert Desire – Romantic Wedding Inspiration in the Glamis Sand Dune

I Am Latreuo Photography

Hidden in the dunes of California known as Glamis, today’s inspiration shoot showcases how a wedding (or elopement) in the desert can be as captivating as any location! Especially when paired with romantic florals, a minimalist yet inviting sweetheart table and an ethereal wedding cake….

Photographer Ashley of iamlatreuo photo shared these words about the shoot…  “The vision always began with the bride clothed in long flared wedding dress with a natural waistline that could showcase Gibson Bespoke’s luxurious crystal embroidery cape, flawless in subtle winds. The corded buttoning detailing added a hint of Vintage design from Casa Blanca  to an otherwise contemporary look, paired with loose hair in soft romantic twists, and natural makeup by Beauty Bespoke

An organic bouquet of rich blooms and greenery from Leafittolexi tied with silk ribbons in matching hues completed her look. Whilst the groom looks dapper in a traditional black suit that anchored well with the tones of the sand.

The inviting sweetheart table pairs wood with mixed metals and contemporary gold chairs to create an inviting space to continue the celebrations from Adore Folklore. Flowers in soft shades of blush and ivory were selected to complement rather than contend with the natural beauty of the environment. A lot of inspiration was drawn from the organic scenery. Lo Zukowski wanted to capture an invitation suite that was both romantic and lux, but with a minimal, organic aesthetic.

The celebration concluded with the most delicious looking three-tiered cake from Peggy Liao Cake, adorned with beautiful metallic hues and transparent sugar leaves.”


Isn’t it stunning?? It makes me want to spend the day in the sand! As always a huge thankyou to the whole creative team listed below who lent their talents to bring this beautiful editorial to life.
