A Simple, Intimate Desert Wedding

The desire for small, intimate weddings or elopements seems to be increasing in popularity with our newly engaged readers. And, we love it. We love when couples choose unique and authentic ways to express the most sacred vows they take whether it be in a luxurious ballroom or the beautiful desert—choosing what is most meaningful to them. Here is what photographer Gaby Jeter had to share with us regarding Kitaro and Alexa's desert ceremony:

Kitaro and Alexa, from Switzerland, always wanted to get married in Vegas, as they both don't like big flashy and traditional weddings where everything is according to a fixed plan and everyone is stressed (they've attended a few of those, and it's not their style). 
Instead, they opted for an intimate, simple and beautiful ceremony in the desert. They wanted their day to be about love, friendship, laughter and overall FUN. They wanted to make sure that celebrating their special moment of becoming husband and wife was joyful with those they feel closest to.
