Modern Vegas Elopement with Traditional Twists | McKenzie Stewart Weddings

Downtown Elopement | Little Vegas Wedding

Andre was en route to Vegas from Rio de Janeiro when his flight was cancelled. The couple had not seen one another for six weeks, due to work schedules so reuniting the morning of their ceremony was extra sweet. They chose not to get ready together, and did a first look just outside the hotel. Even modern elopements need a bit of tradition!

Stephanie had always dreamed of wearing pink heels while she exchanged her vows, and that dream came true. In another twist of tradition, she also carried a vintage beaded purse gifted by her grandmother and wore three blue flower pins from her sister.

After their chapel ceremony officiated by Elvis (decidedly non-traditional!) they did some fun photographs in and around the Smith Center and downtown Las Vegas.

Pop-up Wedding in Downtown Las Vegas | Ashley Marie Myers Photography

Downtown Las Vegas Elopement | Little Vegas Wedding

I’m ashamed to admit this wedding sat for a long time in my queue because I was hoping for more details from the bride and groom. But finally I’m publishing this super cute pop-up wedding in downtown Las Vegas. It has all the elements of a stress-free elopement: an officiant, gorgeous florals, fun props and an awesome bride and groom: Alan and Tina.

The vows were at Park on Fremont and afterwards the couple did a few photos with their bridal party and loved ones. They celebrated with some doughnuts and had a fun, colorful and totally artsy Vegas wedding.

Neon Museum Breakfast Wedding | Brilliant Imagery

Neon Museum | Little Vegas Wedding

One of the biggest advantages to a Vegas wedding has to be the flexibility in terms of timing. Extra important due to the heat from May through September. An afternoon wedding too hot with too flat of light? Try a night ceremony. Or, better yet: a fun breakfast ceremony.

Jake and Elena went just that route, hosting an incredible early morning ceremony at the Neon Museum right in the Boneyard, complete with mimosas and a doughnut bar. Later they moved everyone over to Mundo (then located at World Market Center) for a lunch reception. Read on for all the details from this couple.

WHY LAS VEGAS?

After searching for venues in Texas without much luck I remembered coming across a Thrillist article about the Neon Museum. In all our trips to Vegas we never made it there for sightseeing, though. I thought I’d inquire to see if they did weddings and much to my delight they did and at a reasonable price!

THE CEREMONY — Boneyard at The Neon Museum

It was so great! We were crazy enough to decide to get married in Vegas in August and I was determined to have an outdoor wedding so I knew we had to do it early in the day so as not to give our guests heat stroke. With a morning ceremony the feel was more informal yet still nice, which I loved as we weren’t looking to have a traditional wedding that our guests have been to many times over. We wanted something memorable and fun and it was that and then some.

THE RECEPTION — Mundo

We were transported by private bus from the Neon Museum to Mundo for our reception. It was more of a lunch reception. The majority of the guestlist live in Texas, a state heavily influenced by Mexican culture, so we knew our friends and family would enjoy a lunch with some Latin flair. Mundo did not disappoint both with its excellent cuisine and its fun and funky atmosphere! Instead of a traditional wedding cake we served wedding CHURROS! How fun is that?!

DIY DETAILS + DECOR

We chose to go with a color palette that reflected the colors of the desert. Nude, terracotta, cactus or sage green, lilac/lavender, light pink/blush, mustard and pale yellow were all incorporated. I didn’t want anything too dramatic or bold since we were getting married in the morning, so we went with soft and muted. The girls picked their own dresses in shades of pink and the boys were in matching lavender shirts with deep purple ties: the color of my husband’s collegeM Texas Christian University, with khaki slacks. I carried a simple bouquet of white tulips while the girls carried bouquets in shades of dusty pink, ivory and mustard yellow.

FAVORITE MEMORY

I loved everything about our wedding day. From primping with my gals over Champagne and breakfast in our room at the Aria pre-ceremony, to the fun and colorful atmosphere of our morning ceremony at the Neon Museum. Then the delicious food and cocktails and fun photo ops with the teal wingback and birdcage chairs at Mundo to the after party at the pool at Aria that afternoon. If I had to pick a specific element though it would have to be the doughnut and mimosa bar we served during our ceremony at the Neon Museum. We are known to be the Among our friends and family we are known to be doughnut and Champagne lovers so it was our way of putting our “stamp” and a personal touch that played out perfectly with our morning ceremony. Since we incorporated the breakfast element at the ceremony we decided to go with serving lunch at our reception.

LAS VEGAS WEDDING TIPS FROM JAKE AND ELENA

If our budget allowed I would’ve hired a wedding planner to help me with details. That’s something I would highly recommend especially for brides trying to plan from another city. It would’ve alleviated so much stress since I wasn’t very familiar with the wedding scene in Las Vegas. I would also hire private transportation to take you around town if your ceremony and reception are not at the hotel you and your guests are staying at and especially if the ceremony and reception are at different locations as were ours.
