There’s just something about Las Vegas weddings that I think attract the coolest, most eclectic couples. Risk-takers, trendsetters and just generally awesome people, you know? I wasn’t able to get in touch with today’s couple for the interview as they are so incredibly busy, but I wanted to share their extraordinary wedding nonetheless. Extraordinary how? A dove grey wedding dress, amazing shoes, an incredibly stylish wedding party crew and a venue that fits so perfectly for this couple, it’s unreal.
Wendy and Jim had been married for 20 years when they decided it was time to REALLY get married. While they had never had a traditional wedding, they pulled together their friends and family to make their wedding day dream a reality at their vow renewal.
After getting ready at Vdara, they chose the gothy, appropriately art-themed boutique hotel The Artisan for their handfasting, vow renewal and wedding reception. A belly dancer entertained and a custom cake based on Tony Duquette’s designs enthralled. The elaborate cake (from Aracelli Zea Cake Studio) with vibrant colors and artistic shapes was a showstopper!
Why the DC Comics merchandise? Jim is a well-known comic book artist who has worked with DC in the past. Ever heard of Batwoman? Yeah. That well-known.
First looks: still the best.
