Next, the décor is out of this world cool. While the striking desert backdrop doesn't need much dressing up, this couple added elements that feel both special to their wedding and as if they could have been naturally found outdoors. From their wooden ceremony arch to the tumbleweed-inspired florals, this bride and groom took a theme and ran with it.

And while the ceremony certainly felt remote, the reception felt more like an intimate cocktail party. Thanks to a multi-level venue and a night truly under the stars, this couple's outdoor reception seemed like a laid-back gathering at Christen and Billy's home.
