Welcome to Your Guide to Modern Vegas Weddings!

What’s the saying? If you want something done right, do it yourself?

Little Vegas Wedding (or LVW if you’d rather) was started when I was planning my own 2010 destination Vegas wedding. After spending many hours online researching and wading through forums and outdated, uninformative websites full of sales pitches, I decided there had to be a better way, so I started LVW in June 2012.

What Little Vegas Wedding is All About

LVW aims to please in the form of posts featuring eye candy of real Vegas weddings, elopements and engagements, plus inspiration in the form of styled wedding shoots to get your creative juices flowing. Desert weddings, chic modern Vegas wedding venues, restaurant receptions and the unexpected all make regular appearances on the blog.

Throw in some vendor interviews and Vegas wedding tips, and comprehensive venue directory for unique Vegas wedding options and receptions and you’ve got the gist of Little Vegas Wedding.

Everything is written from my point of view, that of a former Las Vegas destination bride, with a helpful and personal look at the most common problems and questions couples planning have while planning their own weddings in the city.

Meet the Editor, Kelly

Before launching Little Vegas Wedding, I was a photo and website editor at a newspaper. Prior that, I was a biologist and sometime travel writer. It’s been a strange few years!

I’ve lived in a few countries including Japan, Thailand and the UAE, but currently live and blog from the snowy slopes of the Rockies in western Canada. I’d move to Las Vegas in a heartbeat though, and visit frequently. When I’m there, you can find me enjoying a cocktail at the Laundry Room, eating sushi at Kabuto, spa-ing, high tea-ing or champagne-ing at the Mandarin Oriental or playing the Roller Coaster Tycoon machine at the Pinball Hall of Fame. (It keeps eating my quarters, though.)

You can read about my Vegas wedding to Mr. M on the fab blog A Practical Wedding and you can read more about why I started Little Vegas Wedding in an interview with JamieY Photography.

I also write about bridal fashion and trends for PreOwnedWeddingDresses, the premiere website for selling and purchasing pre-loved designer wedding dresses.

People have many assumptions about Vegas weddings, and so many of them are not true. Let’s prove them wrong together!
