Following their engagement on the weekend of July 4th, Laurel and Tyler returned to Las Vegas to exchange their vows a year later in this rustic style wedding right on the Strip! Photographed by Wai Reyes Photography, this event is a lot of fun and packed with handmade and DIY touches, even though it was a destination wedding! (Laurel and Tyler are from Arizona.)
Deciding on a chapel was easy for the couple; Laurel and Tyler went with Little Church of the West, the place Laurel’s great grandmother was married at in the 1950s. The bride says: “We were really close when i was growing up so it was like a part of her was there with me.”
Laurel carried a round bouquet was composed of flowers in shades of lilac, lavender and purple including roses, lisianthus, hydrangeas and Picasso calla lillies, with some succulents for greenery, accented by vintage brooches and a piece of her mother’s bridal gown. Her bridal party wore deep purple gowns, and the men wore heather grey.
Following the vows, the party got started at Maggiano’s at Fashion Show Mall. More purple and plum decor showed up on the round tables, as well as in the linens and chair sashes. Rustic detailing like burlap seat buntings mixed with glamorous additions like luxe peacock feathers and sparkle dusted table numbers.
Freed’s bakery designed the three tier wedding cake with sugar flowers as well as the groom’s cake, which was a mason jar! Balloons floated overhead in the tray ceiling and purple uplighting added a glam touch to the already beautiful venue.
Laurel writes: “My mom and I planned the whole wedding ourselves. We were going for a Vintage/Glam feel. Maggiano’s was absolutely wonderful! The staff was so easy and accommodating and handled EVERYTHING. They were super helpful with vendor recommendations and all my questions along the way. Trying to get everyone where they need to be when they needed to be there was a task because everyone was scattered about the Strip but we used Bell Trans and got a shuttle bus to handle transportation for everyone to get to the ceremony.”

I love that the groom got his own boot bottom message!
At the end of the night, the couple ducked under a tunnel of sparklers on an overpass over the Strip and headed off on their honeymoon!
