Moroccan Desert Wedding Inspiration | Little Vegas Wedding

Every spring in Las Vegas, one of the largest gatherings in the world of wedding photographers and industry experts happens at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International expo. As a wedding blogger, it’s one of my favourite times of year because I see the results of some amazingly imaginative photo shoots. Many of them are hosted for out-of-town photographers by local vendors, so it’s a beautiful way to see people work together and have the city hosts show another side of Las Vegas to visitors. It’s almost time for the 2017 conference and I can’t wait see what kind of amazing inspiration rolls in this year!

For now, here’s a shoot from last year that evokes the elegance of a desert wedding with a Moroccan flair … complete with camel. Lanterns and drapery sway in the breeze while decadent treats beckon the bride and groom. The details were put together by Cactus and Lace Weddings in the amazing Valley of Fire. From the lush local florals to the henna-inspired cake, I hope you can find a little eye candy in this inspiration shoot.

Old Hollywood-inspired Styled Shoot at the Barrymore | Marie and Michael Photography

Retro Wedding at The Barrymore | Little Vegas Wedding

If you want to go Hollywood glam in Las Vegas, The Barrymore is a perfect venue to choose. It’s got this retro feel, full of golden details and decadent decor (like that wallpaper! Unf.)

I like to recommend it for smaller wedding parties because it’s got a patio and a built-in theme already. Here’s a gorgeous peek at the space in a styled shoot that evokes romance and glamour from two Austrian wedding photographers who did a little work while visiting the city recently.

Southwestern Wedding Inspiration | Paris Mountain Photography

Desert Wedding Inspiration | Little Vegas Wedding

With a heavy dose of southwestern style, this desert wedding inspiration is making me swoon. The turquoise shades pop against that dusty desert background. Eldorado Canyon was the perfect place to host this rustic, warm wedding inspiration. Feathers, arrows and touches of wood kept this theme on point.

Himalayan Pink Salt Desert Wedding Inspiration | Taylored Photo Memories

Pink Desert Wedding Inspiration | Little Vegas Wedding

The New Age flair for this styled shoot takes its inspiration from a gorgeous pink mineral: rose quartz, as well as Himalayan pink salt. Paired with succulents, local botanicals and geometric shapes the adorable tiny chapel at Cactus Joe’s Blue Diamond Nursery takes on a modern feel.

You’ll find many wonderful ideas to take away from this post including boutonnieres made of minerals, eco-friendly favors and the subtle southwestern styling with a touch of vintage glam.

More from the stylist, Amy, of Design in Mind Events: 

With the popularity of Himalayan salt rocks appearing in cooking recipes as well as home decor, it was a wonderful opportunity to implement the natural mineral source in a wedding setting.The soft luminescent glow of peach and pink from the rocks exemplifies the mood of a desert sunset. With the color palette of pink, peach, champagne and gold, we wanted to incorporate the adorable pink chapel located on the premises! Simple rentals such as champagne linens, gold flatware and pink depression glass adds a pop of romance to the natural desert setting.

To minimize the wedding-carbon-footprint, blooming cacti were placed in rose quartz votive rocks and only a few sprigs of blooms were used to enhance the centerpieces. For the ceremony decor, various sizes of Himalayan salt rocks and succulents were used to line the aisle while strands of rose quartz were used as a backdrop.

When purchasing decor for the big day, keep in mind of how it can be used once the wedding is over. For instance, the salt rocks can be gifted to your bridal party and family members who helped with the wedding. The salt rock lamp can be used inside the home or you can remove the cord and bulb for outside use on the patio or garden.

Besides the DIY rose quartz curtain used as the ceremony backdrop, other DIY elements showcased in the shoot were the rose quartz bridal hair piece, the groom’s rose quartz boutonniere and rose quartz place setting wrap for the sweetheart table. We hope this shoot ignites some fresh ideas for those who are looking to plan either a desert, southwestern, eco-friendly, DIY, or just a simply pink palette themed wedding.

Hollywood Glam Bridal Shoot from Erin Usawicz

Hollywood Glam Bridals | Little Vegas Wedding

I know a lot of brides and grooms stress about the “perfect” venue for their bridal portraits, but the truth is, if you have chosen a talented (and patient) photographer, you can get amazing photos. That’s the reason I’m highlighting this fairly simple bridal portrait session today. Shot on location in MGM Grand, this pin-up inspired series shows that you don’t need much to go glam.

These photos evoke old Hollywood drama — and were all shot in a ginormous hotel complex. But you’d never know it; fabulous lighting and careful angle choice help hide that. So don’t focus on running around Vegas trying to get as many famous landmarks as you can in your photos, just take a few minutes to consider working with what you’ve got and what you’re really trying to capture in your wedding photos…the background, or you.
