Introducing the Joshua Tree Events Collective!
We’re excited to be one of the founding members of the Joshua Tree Events Collective! The website for the collective has just launched, and it’s a great resource for anyone planning a wedding or event here in the Joshua Tree Area.
The collective was created in 2017 by a group of professional event vendors living in the Morongo Basin. Our shared goals are to create a stronger community of local vendors by pooling our talent and resources, and together reaching out to clients ready to host an exceptional Joshua Tree area wedding or event.
Too often we have worked weddings and events where the flowers came from Orange County, the planner from San Francisco, the officiant from Los Angeles, and the cake from Palm Springs. Knowing how many skilled vendors live and work right here in our high desert communities, we wanted to change the perception that vendors need to be brought in from afar.
Our collective members have years of professional experience and local knowledge of Joshua Tree area events. We are versatile and rugged, like our desert surroundings. We know the most efficient ways to create a memorable and successful high-desert event. And we want to share that knowledge with our clients.
Check out the Joshua Tree Events Collective website to discover Joshua Tree area vendors and venues, and follow them on Facebook and Instagram for Joshua Tree wedding inspiration!
We are planning a wedding for fall 2019 or early spring 2020 in Joshua Tree and your blog has been such a fantastic resource! I was wondering if you have reccomendations for venues under $5K? I’ve contacted many of popular JT venues and often times, they come back with an estimate of $7k +. We are expecting 70 – 90 family members to celebrate with us. As much as I’d love to say “screw it. Let’s just elope”, we are super close with our family and want them there to support and celebrate with us as well as share our love for climbing and the desert at one of our favorite places.
However, we are also pretty practical and are trying to keep our entire budget under $15K and the venue under $5K. Is this totally unrealistic or is there still hope for us to find a place in the Joshua Tree area?
Hi Molly! Check out The Station — it’s a unique new venue that’s very affordable.
