Today’s wedding pairs the gorgeous Mandalay Bay chapel with a little touch of desert beauty. Together they make an amazing combination for Amanda and Daniel’s Vegas wedding. With a classic black and white and red color theme and rose accents this wedding was filled with little touches of old Hollywood glamour.
As you know Mandalay Bay is an MGM property, and they do not allow outside photography of their wedding ceremonies, so there are no ceremony photos in this post, but the photos of getting ready and the amazing bridal portraits were too gorgeous not to share. I’m totally in love with Amanda’s dress!
WHY LAS VEGAS?
We chose Las Vegas for something different and exciting. Daniel and I had never been there together. We are both people that live to go out, have fun and just enjoy life. What better way then to start a new chapter in Las Vegas than getting married?
THE CEREMONY — Mandalay Bay
We chose Mandalay Bay for the beauty of the place. They were also so open to concerns and answering our questions. It just felt like they really cared about making our day as special as possible.
THE RECEPTION — Buca di Beppo at Excalibur
Our celebration dinner was with the 40 family and friends that attended our special day. We had it at Buca di Beppo located in Excalibur.
Our desert photoshoot was absolutely amazing. We had an awesome photographer that had mentioned the idea to us and we thought it would be something totally different then just having regular ceremony pictures. It had rained the night before and the clouds were just not lifting enough to get the exact photos that we wanted in the morning. As we drove out the the desert around 4pm the fog had lifted just enough to capture amazing shots of the two of us.
