Calico Basin was just the right mix of adventure and intimacy for Michelle and Grant. These Canadians blended rustic with romance and a dash of relaxation for their Red Rock Canyon vows. I love the matching bouquets the flower girls and Michelle had.
After the wedding, the couple and their 30 guests literally got the party rolling by loading into the Land Yacht, a huge party bus perfect for this sort of occasion. The couple did some kitschy cool photos at the Neon Museum Boneyard and then headed out for more fun, including a family-style dinner at El Segundo Sol and late night drinks at The Peppermill’s retro Fireside lounge.
So today’s post is a little different, but I couldn’t resist because of the venue and beautiful photos. Regina and David had their first date at Lake Las Vegas, so they celebrated their anniversary by having a couple’s shoot out there.
I absolutely love the Westin at Lake Las Vegas. It’s got a beach, a gorgeous Mediterranean decor and style, with a laid-back vibe. There is a beautiful pool and lush gardens to stroll through. It’s just so different than so many other venues in the Vegas area, making it a great option for photos. Love those color pops!
The combination of cozy rustic details and the stunning mountain backdrop created the perfect mix of desert and camping trip for Ashli and Kris’s wedding.
The level of detail this couple went to include in their wedding theme is amazing: from the camp lanterns and treestump wedding cake to the trail mix favor bar and centerpieces that would fit right into a country cabin, each detail is more fun than the last. Warm woods and textures like burlap and rock brought the outside in. Ashli’s wildflower-inspired bouquet even evoked a stroll through the woods. You’re probably not be surprised to hear this couple were engaged at the top of a mountain.
Paiute’s lawn is a gorgeous ceremony venue, too. The lush floral arch is the perfect frame for exchanging vows. Love that this couple who loves hiking, biking, fishing and anything outdoorsy were able to turn a classic golf course into their dream venue.
Pat and Taylor are two Vegas locals who married inside the Havana Room at Tropicana Las Vegas. The former nightclub’s dark moody vibe was accented beautifully with candlelight and flowers in deep, dramatic hues. The room has beautiful curves and is great for laidback affairs that make for easy conversation.
Every photo seems dramatic, even the casual one of the newlyweds taking part in beer pong! There’s something about this venue that just stands out.
Teela and Robert hosted exchanged their vows backed by a panoramic view of the Strip from their MGM Grand Skyline Terrace Suite. With over 800-square-feet of patio space, it was more than spacious for their intimate guestlist of family and friends. Luxury details filled the suite, from the bride’s silver heels to the sophisticated wedding cake. Perfect for the modern space.
After getting emotional on the terrace, the party continued indoors with a chic cake and Champagne reception. They celebrated their marriage by sharing their first dance outdoors, the lights on the Strip flickering on hotel by hotel behind them.
Andre was en route to Vegas from Rio de Janeiro when his flight was cancelled. The couple had not seen one another for six weeks, due to work schedules so reuniting the morning of their ceremony was extra sweet. They chose not to get ready together, and did a first look just outside the hotel. Even modern elopements need a bit of tradition!
Stephanie had always dreamed of wearing pink heels while she exchanged her vows, and that dream came true. In another twist of tradition, she also carried a vintage beaded purse gifted by her grandmother and wore three blue flower pins from her sister.
After their chapel ceremony officiated by Elvis (decidedly non-traditional!) they did some fun photographs in and around the Smith Center and downtown Las Vegas.
Another long-distance couple, Steph and Anthony came all the way from Australia. As a result they packed every second of their Vegas wedding full of amazing locations and fun times. Weddings planned from so far typically have a smaller guestlist, but Steph and Anthony’s family and friends represented and made the journey to support them.
The couple chose a few iconic locations for their wedding photos, including El Dorado Canyon and downtown Las Vegas, rejoining their guests at Hard Rock Cafe for the reception. Their theme featured Day of the Dead design and details, with a very busy dancefloor. Surrounded by memorabilia from rock kings and queens with a view of the Strip from the patio, everyone celebrated until the wee hours.
Kimberly and Jamie hosted a small group of their closest friends and family for an intimate ceremony in a suite at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. Vows before Champagne and cupcakes and that view! While I am jealous of their fabulous wedding venue I have to say I’m even more jealous of Kimberly’s bridal shoe choice. Comfortable custom Chucks? Sign me up.
The next day the couple had a post-wedding shoot at The Neon Museum’s Boneyard. Perfect way to wind down after a hectic few days.
I’m ashamed to admit this wedding sat for a long time in my queue because I was hoping for more details from the bride and groom. But finally I’m publishing this super cute pop-up wedding in downtown Las Vegas. It has all the elements of a stress-free elopement: an officiant, gorgeous florals, fun props and an awesome bride and groom: Alan and Tina.
The vows were at Park on Fremont and afterwards the couple did a few photos with their bridal party and loved ones. They celebrated with some doughnuts and had a fun, colorful and totally artsy Vegas wedding.
Anita and Brian travelled all the way from New Zealand to tie the knot in Las Vegas. Well, the desert anyhow.
They chose a New Years Eve elopement which seems so impossibly romantic. Anita’s gown has just the right level of glitz and glam to match the date and venue, bringing in a chic feel. This is such a personal, private capture of their vow exchange that I feel like I’m spying!
