Karissa Young, the artist behind Pretty WrittenThings, created the sumptuous invitation suite incorporating her elegant traditional calligraphy.

ABOUT JOSHUA TREE

Joshua Tree National Park is located in southern California and encompasses two desert ecosystems, the Mojave and the Colorado.  The park is named for the spiky, twisting Agave family Joshua Trees that can be seen throughout the park.
