Dream desert weddings!!
Wonderful Cactus and lace team!
We cannot even begin to recommend cactus and lace enough!! If you’re looking for an intimate wedding in the must beautiful desert location, these are the ladies you need to talk too!! We knew we wanted a desert location but most companies we came across only offered an “elopement” style day with minimal guests and no design aspects, in cactus and lace I found my perfect meeting of intimate desert wedding with beautiful styling! We had an initial Skype call so they could get a feel for our vision and us as a couple, they then set up a joint Pinterest so we could really get a feel for ideas, this evolved until a few months before until we really pinned down what we wanted! We can’t thank them enough for our beautiful day, in the midst of everything going on ( the start of the pandemic with a full weeks rain prior) it was an absolute oasis of love and calm! Everything absolutely blew our expectations out if this world! the florals, the setting, the cake!! it’s like they saw our vision better than we did! It was quite an odd experience planning a wedding via email from the other side of the world especially for such a control freak like me with such specific vision but they constantly anticipated our needs/ nerves and put them to rest! not only did they execute our wedding more perfectly than we could have imagined but they were a real source of support and encouragement through all the ups and downs we faced! From start to finish working with them has been an absolute pleasure! I can’t possibly recommend their services enough to other couples! I just wish we could do it all again!! 💖💖💖Sent on 03/27/2020

Cactus and Lace are Incredible
Rachel and Lory and the C&L team were the first and best decision we made concerning our wedding. They were constantly available the 14 months leading up to our ceremony and worked with us to make our ceremony the most personalized to us it can be. Plus the photos....amazing. They created such fond memories for our wedding that guests haven't stopped talking about. Do not hesitate on hiring them!Sent on 11/22/2019

From the cake, to the decor, to the food to the photographers, I can not rave enough about how in love everyone was over the wedding! Do not look anywhere else, these people are your people to book for your wedding without a doubt!!!Sent on 12/02/2019

The designs these ladies create takes my breath away during each wedding. Perfection in the desert! I happily refer couples to there services knowing that they will be wrapped with professionalism and solid execution.
