Samantha and Jason didn’t want a big fuss and they certainly didn’t want their wedding to overtake their lives. So instead of taking the traditional route, they decided to rent an AirBnB in Yucca Valley and have a low key yet perfectly ‘them’ wedding in the desert. Both lovers of this environment, they’ve spent many vacations exploring places such as Joshua Tree, Mojave, Red Rock and Death Valley. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest they said their “I do’s” under a homemade arch, with the ceremony officiated by the bride’s sister.

The couple wanted a bohemian nature feel with soft pink roses with dark wood tables and chairs. They had blush colored chiffon fabric running along the table with cream and gold accents. The bride loves candlelight so bought some vintage looking brass oil lamps and vintage iron candelabras to create a romantic feel. They also used vintage cream and white colored napkins and gold flatware which evoked nostalgic feelings of the past.

The AirBnB they rented brought the exact feelings of bohemian desert vibes they were going for. There were colorful rugs, leather and skulls as decorations inside and rustic wood swings and a large wood beamed patio for the dinner. All the decor was homemade including the flowers which came from a flower market. The bride’s sister made the cake and helped arrange the decorations on the table.

The bride was wearing a lace mermaid wedding dress with a deep V-neckline. The groom was wearing a black suit with a black tie and blue shirt.
