Brittany and Nick had one major inspiration for their October 2019 wedding – The Big Lebowski! Their venue played a major part of setting the scene for this – with its mid-century modern aesthetic, the boutique AirBnB High Desert Paradise in the Yucca Valley provided the perfect backdrop for their relaxed retro theme!
They hired the house for the whole weekend and had all their best friends crash there with them. As well as the wedding on the Saturday, they hosted a pool party brunch on the Sunday to reminisce and unwind. As well as using the house’s existing styling to influence their aesthetic, they pulled inspiration from the surrounding landscape, and Brittany even started a business off the back of the wedding. She spent $700 arranging her own flowers and completely fell in love with the process so set up a floral design business off the back of it. She also DIYed almost every other element; collecting stained glass pieces for their ceremony arch, handpainting and framing all the signage and putting together the dessert table.
Their ceremony was held in the backyard of the house, and it was super important to the couple that they were able to have their beloved dogs, Luna and Cosmo, as ring bearer and flower girl. Afterwards, they hosted a reception of pizza and a pie bar in lieu of cake, before having a bowling after party at the nearby Yucca Bowl.
