Elvis Ceremony | Little Vegas Wedding

Nicole, the bride from today’s feature wedding, says she dreamed of a Vegas wedding from an early age. I think some of us can relate! With husband Cleveland, she planned a midnight ceremony at the downtown Vegas classic A Little White Wedding Chapel, serenaded in and officiated over by none other than Elvis and witnessed by a group of around 20 guests, including kids. After getting ready on the Strip the group headed north for the ceremony before heading out for a Strip photo tour on a party bus including stops at the Bellagio fountains, Linq and the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. Destination wedding heaven for this Vegas vow obsessed bride.

Retro Reception at The Peppermill | Little Vegas Wedding

If you have ever had the pleasure of visiting The Peppermill, you will understand why I am so excited to share today’s wedding. And if you haven’t been … what are you waiting for!? It’s a kitschy classic that oozes old school Vegas style. Lots of neon, cozy couches and cheesy details served alongside big cocktails and diner classics. It’s a must go. Especially after you see how awesome a wedding reception there can be!

Lauren and Joe had a day full of amazing moments, from a first look at Cosmopolitan’s Chandelier Bar to cruising the Strip in an oversized Dodge Challenger, and of course, celebrating their wedding with loved ones.

WHY LAS VEGAS?

I first went to Vegas in 2008 with my best friend Charlie. I loved it out there so much. I said back then that if I was ever “stupid enough to get married” I would do it in Vegas…haha! Careful what you wish for. When Joe proposed to me the first thing I said (after yes!) was: Please can we do it in Vegas?

THE CEREMONY — Elvis on the Terrace at Vegas Weddings

it was dark and the fairylights on the gazebo were simply beautiful. It was a fun-filled romantic ceremony … we loved every second. I walked down the aisle to Can’t Help Falling in Love and my mum gave me away. We had 20 guests which was amazing considering my side of the wedding party were from the U.K. and Joe’s family are spread out across the U.S.

THE RECEPTION — The Peppermill

The Peppermill was an amazing place! The food is incredible and the ambiance was just perfect for us. I love the colours and the neon lights. Reminds me of old meets new Vegas. I made contact with Peggy, the owner, and asked if it would be possible for us to have our wedding reception there. She was more than happy to accommodate us and was really helpful. I had a purple colour theme and she even offered to order in purple napkins. I dropped my table decorations and favours in the day before and they laid them out beautifully for us. It was perfect! We opted for the normal menu but they do have set menus, too. As our wedding was quite late it was the best venue, being open 24/7. And there was no deadline or curfew. Three weeks later we had another reception in the U.K. for 70 people.

DIY DETAILS + DECOR

I made all the ladies in my wedding group a bracelet with a purple ribbon and a silver State of Nevada charm as a thank you gift. I also made the save the date note myself and all the wedding invitation inserts. The wedding favours were also DIY’d. I bought poker chips and stuck on some stickers I had made onto them. These were included with a thank you poem. I was trying to keep the costs low and the wedding personal.

FAVORITE MEMORY

There are so many. It was just incredible. Just being able to get married to the man I love, in one of my favourite cities in the world, surrounded by our friends and family was a dream come true. Our wedding had a live feed too so all our friends and family who couldn’t make it could watch. My dad also couldn’t make it out to Vegas for the wedding, but en route to the wedding chapel, Joe and I FaceTimed him in the U.K. He had a mini bottle of Champagne at the ready while he watched online (even though it was 3:30 a.m.)

LAS VEGAS WEDDING TIPS FROM LAUREN AND JOE

Be organized and do your research. Make sure you have an itinerary and that you get confirmations for everything. I didn’t see my actual wedding venue until two days before the wedding, but it was perfect. I spent hours online reading reviews and estimating travel times etc.

Desert Ghost Town Engagement | Little Vegas Wedding

I’m head over heels for couples who travel the world together, find themselves in Vegas and decide to get married. Floriane and Claude from France did it in that kitschy-classic, only-in-Vegas style: an Elvis officiant at Graceland Wedding Chapel.

While chapel rules dictated no photos of the wedding ceremony (sigh) the couple walked the Arts District before heading to Nelson’s Landing to get some desert shots. Funky, fresh and cool: I’m loving the style of these two! The explosion of color is just amazing.

El Dorado Ghost Town | Little Vegas Wedding

Christy and Nick had a double-header for their wedding day, choosing two iconic locations for their two sets of vows. I think that’s the beauty of Vegas —  you can have your (wedding) cake and eat it too. Desire an intimate desert wedding in a one-of-a-kind location with a customized ceremony? You got it. Also want a kitschy, over-the-top Elvis drive-thru ceremony? Yup, they’ve got that too.

And despite travelling thousands of miles, they still managed to incorporate personal details into their wedding day. Christy’s dress was reworked by her sister from some lace their mother has had for several decades. The bouquet brooch? A nod to the couple’s cat, Sumo. The ringbearer was a stuffed lamb named Wilbaaa who has been Nick’s travel buddy for some time and also served as Best Lamb. He also sported an outfit created by Christy’s sister.

More from JamieY Photography:

Instead of having mainly posed pictures, they opted to do fun pictures with themes and include their family in them. They brought some wild west themed clothes. They had a fake roulette game set up and had the dad playing for the girl. Nick won of course. Christy’s parents even put on some Property of Las Vegas jail shirts for some fun pictures of Nick capturing them as the sheriff.

Stylish Vow Renewal | Little Vegas Wedding

There are a lot of reasons to love vow renewals. I, of course, especially love Vegas vow renewals. They’re a fresh, fun reminder of your love. And for many couples, it’s a relaxed way to relive a bit of the wedding day magic, with a lot less stress!

Jennifer and Keifer flew to Vegas from Nashville and spent the day doing all sorts of Vegas-y things, from staying in an oh-so-gorgeous Cosmopolitan suite to visiting DTLV including a stop by the Graceland Wedding Chapel for their vow renewal. Love that they involved four of their closest friends in the fun-filled day. (How adorable are the vow renewal M&Ms?!)

Okay, don’t you totally want a fringed dress now? Or a red smoking jacket?!

More from Kirsten Tyrrel, the photographer:

The couple decided on their wedding day that they would take the trip to Vegas to renew their vows on their 10th anniversary. They held true to that plan and flew out from Nashville, TN to party with 4 close friends, Vegas style! From her designer gown to his jacket reminiscent of vintage Elvis, this was one of the most glamorous couples on the strip that night! We hit all the popular places, starting inside their hotel room at Cosmopolitan Hotel, went on to the Bellagio water show, the Neon Boneyard, Fremont Street, and ended at the Graceland Chapel where they privately renewed their vows. In between we had fun riding in the largest limo the company owned and the party never stopped! Jennifer and Keifer were such a fun loving couple with no interest in super posed shots. They wanted all the fun captured- and we had a great time celebrating their love!
