I always feel so fortunate to be able to feature Vegas elopements on the site. These intimate little weddings are a peek into the most private side of a couple’s relationship, and the photos are always so emotional. Today’s feature elopement from Taylored Photo Memories is no exception. Dominique and Anthony chose to marry in the gardens of the Springs Preserve, and looked so happy and relaxed doing so. So simple, so beautiful.
More from their photographer:
Dominique and Anthony are going down as one of my all time favorite couples. They chose a to do a small Springs Preserve wedding rather than a big fussy wedding in their hometown. One of the first comments Dominique made to me was how she did not like being the center of attention, and that they would need help posing. Pictures were very important to her.
Taking their pictures, as it turned out, was very easy. Dominique and Anthony basked in their happiness making the wedding photo shoot easy. They were relaxed and playful, complete naturals. Posing came easy, their love shined through as they held hands, looked into each other’s eyes. They forgot I was there and enjoyed each other and their special day, making my job easy. All I had to do was capture what was already there.
They wanted a beautiful outside setting for their elopement in Las Vegas. We chose the Springs Preserve. It offers many different natural settings that matched the beautiful simplicity of this couple. Dominique was a total DIY bride and got it right! She wore a beautiful custom-made, flowing tulle skirt with a simple feminine white blouse. Dominique’s little sister made the silk sash she wore around her waist and the bride used parts of that to make her own bouquet. A simple ornate headband was the only accessory in her hair. Anthony the groom, a tall handsome man, wore all white to match his bride. He was hip and masculine, with a smile full of love only for his new wife. His eyes lit up every time he looked at her.
