From time to time I like to peek in on the Vegas wedding tag on social media. There are all sorts of goodies in there: people wishing for Vegas weddings, people going to Vegas weddings, and sometimes people who are having awesome Vegas weddings.
Recently I was lucky enough to stumble across totally fun Instagram video that highlighted a vow renewal in just a short 15 seconds. This charming pocket film by Jason Magbanua documented Abet and Benz’s anniversary Vegas vow renewal celebrating 15 years. I was hooked and had to know more!
Abet and Benz came from the Philippines for a road trip tour of the United States with friends, and planned their Vegas vow renewal spontaneously along the way. The couple happen to run a very successful wedding website called Weddings at Work (W@W for short) helping Filipino couples find suppliers and vendors for their weddings.
When you talk about, write and share wedding information all day, it’s no surprise that you are drawn to the simplicity of Las Vegas, and it’s also no surprise you want something fun, easy and memorable. So the couple decided to have a drive thru wedding at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel.
Although the ceremony was quick and simple, the rest of the wedding was packed with meaning and details that you would expect from a couple who have been together 15+ years. Of course, they also happen to be details that are drawn from a couple who know the best wedding vendors in the Philippines – some of whom are travelling with you in your bridal party!
Benz wore a custom hand painted dress based on a tattoo she has. Abet, a Vespa lover, included scooter details in his accessories. Vegas appeared in a bouquet and corsages with a casino and gambling theme. When the time came, the couple drove up to the window in a red hot Ford Mustang and exchanged vows…again.
The 5 person wedding party then cruised down the highway in their convertible to Eldorado Canyon in Nelson to get some desert shots before indulging in dinner at Mon Ami Gabi back on The Strip. A totally fun and fabulous Vegas vow renewal!
