What makes us extra special
High quality photos and editing
We’re photographers first, and so beautiful photography and photo editing are at the core of our collections. Clients say the images we take are so good they look like they’re straight out of a magazine.
Locations and venues
Our portfolio only includes stylish, desirable and slightly offbeat wedding venues. Why? Because we do weddings differently. And if a permit is needed, we’ll handle the paperwork.
The vendors we collaborate with are all known for their reliability and exceptional service at every wedding, as shown by the amazing feedback we get from our couples.
Drawing on our decades of wedding industry experience, our small but focused team works hard to bring your wedding vision to life so your special day is exactly that – special.
On site host
Unique to Cactus Collective Weddings, our staff of on site hosts complete our company training program before solo-hosting any weddings. No temps or interns here. The highly organized on site host is available for all weddings, overseeing the vendor set up, and take care of you and your guests.
Our weddings are environmentally friendly, and we’re a proud partner of Leave No Trace—an NFP providing education and initiatives so every person who ventures outside can protect and enjoy our world responsibly.
Supporters of marriage equality
Couples of any gender and sexuality are welcome, and we’re always educating ourselves on what more we can do to support marriage equality.
Stellar customer service
From initial inquiry through to your special day, when planning your destination wedding we’re just a call away at every step.
