After getting engaged, Emily and Peter celebrated with a vacation to the Chihuahuan Desert. They loved the space so much that they chose to tie the knot in the same Airbnb they reveled in their engagement in. The result was an intimate Texas Airbnb wedding that was a mix of modern yet unique.
The couple, who did all of the planning themselves, incorporated wild floral arrangements from Brandee Winter, DIY touches–such as the backdrop, champagne wall, and their bar—and rentals from Illusions Rentals. Their hard work had the home looking like a professional venue. The ceremony was the only part of the wedding day that they didn’t formally plan. The couple’s best friend officiated and worked with other friends to build a ceremony that incorporated their words and advice.
The photographer–Nicole of Map + Compass Photography–was simply the best! During the preparation process the couple decided to part with their decorators and organizator but the photographer helped a lot. She jumped in with decor ideas, introduced the couple to amazing vendors, and revised the timeline countless times until everything made sense. Every idea, question, and concern was met with support and invaluable constructive feedback. The overall goal for the wedding was to have it feel like a really intimate dinner party. From a design/style perspective, the vibe mirrored the guys as a couple–a unique mix of traditional, modern, and funky. The wedding decor was done with bold blooms and pampas grass plus oversized leaves.
