Julie and Patrick in Joshua Tree, CA

A rustic bed-and-breakfast perched on a hill in the desert is the site of one couple's alfresco celebration.

For dessert, guests enjoyed slices of pumpkin bundt cake topped with cream cheese frosting and whiskey sauce, along with cobbler, ice cream, the bride's mother's famous biscotti and almond roca, and almond champagne. "Patrick and I sat on a bench for two and soaked it all in," Julie says. "Being surrounded by our closest friends and family—we've never felt more loved."
