Facilities and Capacity
Sacred Sands is a triumph of contemporary design, effortlessly echoing its rugged environs whilst conjuring a chic, modern atmosphere. Inside dark sand-worn woods and Moroccan textures combine with polished concrete floors and adobe-style strawballe contstructed walls. The effect is sparse and minimalist in design, yet rich in texture and deep in its natural color palette. Couples can exchange vows in the property’s ceremony circle, with the craggy hills of the protected Mojave as their backdrop. This boho chic space can accommodate an extensive guest list of more than 100 loved ones and can feature an iron or deadwood arbor to frame the ceremony. As night falls the courtyard provides an exceptional reception space, lit by the faint rays of the setting sun and tasteful string lighting so couples don't have to worry about renting any lighting. There is also a cocktail patio with firepits, wine barrel adirondeck chairs and a stylish outdoor bar. Sacred Sands also has a large indoor ballroom with a fireplace and indoor bar, perfect for dancing with no dance floor required.
Sacred Sands is an exclusive venue, and features four stylish rooms for guests to experience. They feature outdoor terraces, deluxe linens, coffee/tea, mini-fridges, robes/slippers and outdoor tubs and showers along with private stargazing beds. There is an emphasis on zen and relaxation throughout the property, and as such there are no televisions in the rooms. Instead, guests are invited to listen to our records or switch off and enjoy their time in the calm stillness of the joshua trees. There is ample parking available on-site (50 spots with parking attendant included).
The staff of Sacred Sands draw on 30+ years of combined events experience to ensure the success of each big day they host.

Maureen S. · Getting married on 02/11/2021
It is a spectacular setting and the owners were really great to work with throughout the original date and the rescheduling. They were beyond accommodating when I erred in a delivery time; welcoming and responsive. It was great having the four rooms onsite (they were spotless as was the whole place!) and made it so convenient. Loved our time there! 10 !starsSent on 11/19/2020

Stunning and unique!
If you're thinking about a Joshua Tree wedding, you MUST consider Sacred Sands. It is absolutely stunning. Scott and Steve have impeccable taste and clearly take such pride in what they've created. We got so many compliments from our guests, saying our wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings they'd ever attended. We feel so lucky to have gotten married here! (PS if you choose Sacred Sands as your venue and are looking for a planner - hire Renee Dalo of Moxie Bright!)Sent on 12/02/2018

Owner & Events Producer
I have 16 years of professional event planning experience and it was a lifelong dream of mine to own and operate a venue. I discovered Sacred Sands was available thru planning my own Joshua Tree wedding. I toured many venues and saw ways I could improve them to the point I knew I had to acquire a venue of my own. Sacred Sands is a hallowed place I have venerated for many years and am so blessed to now call my own. I'm known for being able to work with anyone. I'm very detail oriented and production minded. We welcome everyone under the sun and I hope I have the pleasure of hosting your wedding or event!
