Opting for an autumn wedding, Danielle and Joey went chic with a country club reception venue. Danielle happens to be a wedding planner at one of the large Strip hotels, so no detail was overlooked. A pink and Champagne color palette kept the theme feminine, especially since it was paired with romantic roses and rhinestones all over. So pretty!
A Catholic ceremony transitioned into bridal portraits at some downtown Vegas landmarks before getting the night going at DragonRidge Country Club. Danielle and Joey’s wedding incorporated personal loves, cultural and religious history and, most importantly: friends and family. (Not to mention a few fun Batman details. How many can you see?)
THE CEREMONY — Joseph, Husband of Mary Catholic Church
The ceremony was very emotional and deep for us. With our shared Catholic faith, having it in the church was very important to us both. It was filled with tradition and was the focal point of our day.
THE RECEPTION — DragonRidge Country Club
Our reception was a blend of both of our cultures. Keeping with Joey’s Chaldean roots, and still having modern traditions as well. We wanted the reception to be elegant and beautiful, yet FUN! We both wanted something elegant, yet grandiose for the reception. DragonRidge was the only venue we saw that we both fell in love with instantaneously.
DIY DETAILS + DECOR
The floral was made by my aunt, who is also a floral designer at Mandalay Bay. It was very special to me knowing that she made all of the floral that was carried down the aisle, as well as on the tables. My veil was also handmade from Etsy, along with my handkerchief, which was a gift from my bridesmaids.
Our friends and family. As beautiful as everything was, it would’ve been nothing without them to celebrate with us!
