I love a romantic, traditional wedding, and Julie and Gaetano’s wedding at Lake Las Vegas was just that, overflowing with love and personal details. They were married at a venue well-suited to Julie’s vision of a fairytale wedding, the gorgeous Capella Di Amore at Hilton Lake Las Vegas, a dramatic chapel that hovers over water. Despite losing her voice, Julie powered through and married her sweetheart. Soft pink colors mixed with Tiffany blue and a hugely dramatic wedding gown perfected this classic Las Vegas wedding and make this couple’s dream day come true.
The Ceremony –Capella Di Amore at Hilton Lake Las Vegas
Before I met Gaetano, I was that little girl who dreamt of a fairytale wedding, I always knew I wanted to feel like a princess on my big day. So when my Prince Charming asked me to marry him I couldn’t have been more thrilled to start planning. I chose the Hilton at Lake Las Vegas because of their beautiful chapel on the bridge. It was exactly what I was looking for! Our wedding was beautiful and a very special day in our lives.
There were a couple small speed bumps along the way. I completely lost my voice on the wedding day — I woke up and could hardly make a sound! I actually found it a blessing in disguise. I was able to kick my feet up while my sister/maid of honor handled everything. I drank warm tea and saved my voice for my vows. I was able to say them and be heard. Another minor issue was my flowergirl dresses, I decided to get crafty and make them myself. I used the prettiest tulle, full of glitter. Unfortunately glitter is really itchy! My flowergirls were all red and begging to take their dresses off after we took pictures. They sure did look cute though.
DIY Details + Decor
Other than the flowergirl dresses (the only DIY projects that went wrong, thank goodness!) my sister and I made the flowergirl wands, table numbers, menus, seating name cards, bouquet for the toss, favors, garters and much more. I saved a bunch of money making these myself and they gave my venue a unique feel.
Julie and Gaetano’s Wedding Tips
One planning tip I have is pick a good wedding coordinator! I was so lucky to have Debbie (Ravella’s wedding coordinator) she was so good at keeping me organized and on time. She was very helpful in making decisions before the wedding and helping my wedding day to go as smoothly as possible. We had a guest list of 75 people and everyone knew where to go and what to do.
