I like to daydream about weddings … a lot. Is that apparent? Probably! One of my favorite things to do is think about what kind of gown would be best suited to a certain venue because it combines the fun of online window shopping and some amazing Las Vegas wedding venues! Although I had weddings more in mind, these looks would be just as great for rehearsal dinners, engagement shoots or bachelorette parties at these locations.
All dresses for the four looks are through Rent the Runway (now with a convenient location in Cosmopolitan!) or ModCloth, so they are all under $300. Budget Vegas weddings with style…that’s how we do here at Little Vegas Wedding!

Zach and Karen are new residents to the Las Vegas area, brought there by Zach’s work with the US Air Force. The couple eloped in a private ceremony in December, but took some engagement photos with photographer Alisha Sims in Las Vegas, the first city they got to call home as a couple. Certainly special since Zach’s work is sure to have the couple living all around the world!
While the couple has two rescue dogs named Ellie and Jake, it was only Jake the dachshund appeared in the photos with the couple. And we all know how I feel about pets in engagement photos (umm…LOVE ‘EM!) so of course I had to feature this heartwarming session. Isn’t the rainbow amazing? And it’s not a Floyd Lamb Park shoot without a peacock or two…

Amy and Jeff are two lovebirds who have planned for their wedding to take place at the elegant yet rustic Mount Charleston Lodge, just outside of Las Vegas. It’s a beautiful spot for a wedding, as we’ve seen before.
Their photographer McKenzi from Taylored Photo Memories thought it might be nice to hold their engagement session in the area where they will be wed, so the couple and their high energy pitbull, Lucky, headed up the mountain. There, a beautifully neutral winter palette of greys, whites and dusky beiges as well as a lightly snow-dusted landscape waited for them at this casual and comfy engagement session.
Congratulations, Amy and Jeff!

Hilary and Ian are a sweet couple with a cute “how we met” story (and cute outfits!) Jodi of j anne photography (their photographer) shared that story on her blog; it’s one which began when the couple were just about to begin college. They found themselves on the same cruise ship with their families. Drawn together, they forged a long-distance friendship on that trip that eventually brought them together at the same university, and a romance blossomed.
After Ian proposed in a significant spot to the both of them – Seaport Village in San Diego – the couple began planning a wedding to be held in the summer of 2014 at Four Seasons Las Vegas. Which is exactly where j anne photography captured their romantic engagement session featured today.
Congratulations, Hilary and Ian!

If you couldn’t tell, I have a soft spot for featuring engagement sessions where the couple brings a furry friend (or a few) along. As seen here and here, oh and also here!
So when Taylored Photo Memories shared this sweet engagement session at Red Rock Canyon, I was smitten. And why not? The lush natural surroundings, the cute couple and of course Zyra (the four legged friend seen above) make these engagement photos pop. You might even be hard pressed to believe they were taken not too far from Las Vegas.
Zyra is owned by Nia and Dereck, a couple who moved to Las Vegas from the midwest. They set off an an adventurous engagement session with Taylored Photo Memories, deep into a special spot in Red Rock Canyon. It’s a spot near a spring, so that’s why the photos are so, well, un-deserty! The trek in was about a mile, but the photos at this vibrantly green spot were definitely worth it, and I think you’ll agree.
Nia and Dereck will be getting married in the spring of 2014 in Las Vegas – best wishes and enjoy planning your wedding!
