Supporting Causes Close to Our Heart

From the stunning outdoor locations that we’re privileged to work in to the thousands of couples from all walks-of-life that trust us to create their special day, we count ourselves lucky. Cactus Collective Weddings (CCW) have the honor of experiencing some of life’s most beautiful qualities. But to keep working in the places we do, with the couples we do it’s important that we care for the communities and environment that make this possible.

Committed to Sustainability, Conservation and Equality for All

Working to protect and improve the world around us has always been part of who we are. It’s not a mission statement or pledge we made after we opened our doors in 2017. CCW founder and keen rock climber, McKenzi Taylor has made it part of our business model from day one.

In the early days this meant requesting couples forgo decorations or sourcing environmentally friendly options when absolutely necessary; partnering with like like minded, forward-thinking local business; attending courses and talks that allowed us to listen to the voices of communities we support so we can become better allies.
As our business has grown, so has our ability to make a real difference.

Today, we are able to better commit to campaigns and partnerships that promote the wellbeing of our planet and those who inhabit it.
