Desert wedding invitations

It’s so neat to see all the different places the wedding industry whisks us away. Take this earthy desert editorial that photog Katie Dessin, Kandice of Rose & Stone, and Marisa of Revel Petals hooked up for in Oregon’s Painted Hills. One might not immediately think wedding when looking out at layers of earth at John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, but then you see what they put together, and suddenly everything clicks. Inspiration is everywhere, guys.

PS You can shop the look below, too!

As a way to honor and celebrate a love that is now, new and fresh on a wedding day, but also to celebrate the promise of an ageless, layered lifetime of romance, the painted hills are a perfect backdrop and inspiration for a styled wedding shoot.
