Hip Engagement Session in Downtown Las Vegas | Kel Ward Photography

Retro Downtown Vegas Engagement | Little Vegas Wedding

When you’re a fashion blogger who decides to have an engagement photo session, you know it’s time to turn it up a notch for your shoot. Where better than downtown Vegas where the kitschy crosses with the gritty and the vintage mixes with quirky fashion? (If you’ve been there, you totally get this.)

Hailey and Adam dressed up for the occasion and treated Fremont like their runway, rocking it retro style in this engagement session caught exclusively on film. How appropriate.

Neon Museum | Little Vegas Wedding

For global couple Alex and Martin there was no better place than Las Vegas to tie the knot. This pair from the U.K. met at a wedding in Australia, had a whirlwind romance that had them living together in the U.A.E. before finally ending up in Vegas for their own wedding. Married in front of guests from around the world, Alex rocked an amazing retro tea-length wedding gown while Martin wore a kilt. Perfect for this eclectic couple who chose one of the coolest venues in Las Vegas to tie the knot at. The most fun by choosing to keep an intimate guest list? Photo fun including everyone in attendance and a cruise in a double-decker bus. Vegas wedding perfection.

Classic Wedding at The Smith Center | Adam Frazier Photography

Smith Center | Little Vegas Wedding

I have to admit something: I am obsessed with The Smith Center. The art-deco architecture, the great location and the mix of indoor and outdoor spaces add up to one killer wedding spot. It’s no surprise that Ryan and Danette chose the famous performing arts venue for their romantic wedding.

Dressed up in roses and draping with black and white decor, the venue allowed this couple to shine on their wedding day…and for their wedding party to get a little dancey later on. Every detail was taken care by Scheme Events of and allowed Ryan and Danette to just enjoy their amazing day.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE SMITH CENTER?

It is a beautiful location which gave us a few options when deciding if we wanted an indoor or an outdoor wedding. It gave us an urban city feel while offering the capability to customize the venue to tie into our theme.

THE CEREMONY — Courtyard at The Smith Center

The ceremony was held in the courtyard of The Smith Center, which is a naturally stunning location and the perfect size for our wedding. With the addition of white flowers, white draping, and everyone we loved surrounding us it was everything we could have imagined and more.

THE RECEPTION — Troesh Studio Theater at The Smith Center

The theatre was perfect stage for all to showcase their jokes and dance moves. The night started off with a roast before the toast that had everyone laughing at the jabs from Ryan’s close friends. It led into the jokes and our hidden secrets from Ryan’s brother and best man and the maid of honor. Once the dinner was done and the dancing started there was everything from the Montana country dance, to Bruno Mars, to the Sigma Chi sweetheart serenade (that’s a thing…) everyone had a blast. Even Ryan’s 90-year-old grandparents made an appearance on the dance floor.

FAVORITE MEMORY

The best moment of the day was our first look. We had a quick moment to see each other and have a few moments to ourselves in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the day. It was refreshing to get our focus on each other right before the ceremony when there are so many other things going on around you.

LAS VEGAS WEDDING TIPS FROM RYAN AND DANETTE

Hire a wedding co-ordinator or planner. It made our lives so much easier. We used Scheme Events and our co-ordinator Francesca had an answer for everything. We used all of her vendor recommendations and she was only a phone call away anytime we needed something. We only had one mishap with our venue but Francesca was there to keep Bridezilla from making an appearance…kind of. When Bridezilla came out she just giggled and refocused me.

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.

Vegas Arts District + Neon Museum Wedding | JamieY Photography

Neon Museum | Little Vegas Wedding Brent and Leigh are a pair of booklovers who chose one of Vegas’s most historic locations for their ceremony: The Neon Museum. Nestled amongst the amazing retro signs, these two elected to involve their friends in their ceremony, having them read passages from favorite books and taking photos with them afterwards.

Leigh laughed the entire way through their ceremony because she said she could hear an ice cream truck nearby which really animated the photos. She looks like she’s having the time of her life.

PS: I’m kind of obsessed with their retro-modern attire for the day. The entire crew looked amazing, didn’t they?

More from JamieY, the photographer:

Brent is from Chicago and Leigh is from New Jersey. They were originally a long-distance couple and as self proclaimed book nerds, their romance began on a website for book lovers called LibraryThing. They love vintage things and history, which is half the inspiration behind this wedding. The other half is that they appreciate art, funky architecture, and neat graphic design. 

After the ceremony we took some portraits on the grounds of the museum and then headed off to the arts district for some more alternative urban backdrops for their photos. They really like the contrast of grungy non traditional backgrounds, with them in their beautiful wedding day attire. We had a great time before they headed off for a dinner reception with friends.
