Pink and Cream Wedding at Four Seasons Las Vegas | J. Anne Photography

Real Vegas Weddings | Little Vegas Wedding

Are you swooning yet?

Pink and cream were the sophisticated palette for this intimate wedding. Hidden away in the hotel within a hotel at Four Seasons Las Vegas, Nicole and Alex exchanged vows in the courtyard backed by the unforgettable fountains (complete with cocktail hour), followed by a classic ballroom reception. The feminine touches created an airy, romantic look for this simply stunning wedding. I am gaga over the florals. Feast your eyes!

More from the wedding designer and co-ordinator, Emily:

On a perfect spring day, Nicole walked around her suite at the Four Seasons Las Vegas to the sounds of laughter from her bridesmaids while sipping on a bottle of Dom Perignon. After spending a year planning this beautiful day, her wedding day was finally here.

The couple opted to do a first look. Nicole took Alex’s breath away as he turned around to see his beautiful bride for the first time.

The scattered clouds over the evening ceremony made for stunning light at the right moments. A string duo played Pachelbel’s Canon in D as the bride took her first step down the aisle with both her parents by her side. Surrounded by their family and friends, Nicole and Alex vowed to love each other unconditionally for the rest of their lives and sealed it with a kiss.

PRESS brought great energy as guests sipped on cocktails and enjoyed hors d’oeurves while waiting for the reception to begin. The breathtaking ballroom awaited and Nicole and Alex got the party started with their first dance. The night was filled with lots of great food, a few Persian traditions, and even a slider station at the end of the night.

Quaint Courtyard Wedding at Historic Fifth Street School | Susie and Will

Historic Fifth Street School | Little Vegas Wedding

The courtyard at Historic 5th Street School in downtown Las Vegas is fantastic. It’s light, it’s airy and as you’ll see with today’s wedding, it’s incredibly flexible, working for a combined ceremony and reception venue.

Amping up the vintage feel of the setting, Candace and Bobby used antique touches for their theme, incorporating old books, glassware and lace details. The pops of red in Candace’s bouquet work so well against the pastel backgrounds. Not only that…but the venue’s history worked well for these two teachers. Such a fantastic choice for an outdoor wedding!

Easy, Breezy Red Rock Elopement | Taylored Photo Memories

Red Rock Elopement | Little Vegas Wedding
I get so many emails from couples who are hoping for a just-for-two elopement, asking for my advice on where to hold it. For couples who love nature, Red Rock Canyon is often at the top of my recommendations. It’s private, incredibly scenic and convenient, as it is super close to Las Vegas.

Sam and Sage opted for a ceremony set in the wilds west of the Strip at Red Rock after their plans for a larger wedding in their home state got to be overwhelming. These two wanted to keep things natural, and a spring ceremony was perfect with cooler weather. A few flowers even made an appearance. They didn’t need much: a photographer, officiant, their vows and a simple banner to use in an announcement card keep things beautifully easy.

WHY RED ROCK CANYON?

Coming from Hawaii, we are surrounded by lush green mountains, waterfalls, and ocean everyday. The beauty of nature is so much of what we love about living in Hawaii so although we decided to escape the islands and elope in Vegas, it was important for us to still be surrounded by nature. Red Rock Canyon was so completely different than the landscape we are used to and the big open feel of a desert seemed like the perfect place for us to exchange our vows.

THE CEREMONY

Our original vision of our wedding day consisted of a large party at a beach house on the north shore of Oahu, but as we began to plan the event we became overwhelmed by the details and the amount of work and money it would take to create the perfect day. I woke up one morning and asked Sam if he wanted to elope. No fuss, no drama, no stress. Once we made the decision to elope there was a huge feeling of relief.

Our vision then became about what was really important to us; expressing our love for each other in an intimate ceremony surrounded by beauty. We wanted our day to be about US and we were determined to make that happen. It was perfect. Thanks to McKenzi Taylor our planning process was simple. I had seen pictures of Red Rock and knew that’s where we wanted to tie the knot, but I left it up to McKenzi to choose a time and exact location for our elopement. She suggested an officiant and we were done!

FAVORITE MEMORY

The one thing Sam and I did spend time on was writing our own vows to each other and I’d have to say that was the best part of the planning process. It was a way for each of us to reflect on our relationship and really focus on what this commitment meant to us. It was a beautiful process.

ELOPEMENT TIPS FROM SAM AND SAGE

Keep it simple! It’s so easy to get sucked into “you need this and you need that” for you wedding, but none of those things are actually what’s important. Your special day should be about you and your partner and sharing your love for one another. You don’t need $25,000 and fancy napkins to experience that. No matter what you decide, just be true to what YOU want and not what someone else tells you you need.

Woodsy, Rustic Wedding at Legends Ranch | The Amberlight Collective

Legends Ranch | Little Vegas Wedding

From first touch to last dance, Bridget and Jason infused their wedding at Las Vegas’s Legends Ranch with rustic goodness. Sunflowers, wood and glowing candles created a romantic, casual atmosphere.

The Amberlight Collective were not originally going to shoot this wedding, but when Bridget and Jason’s original photographer had a family emergency, wedding planning Archel Rolwing recruited them. Using a planner was key for these two as they were travelling from California to get married, with just four months to plan. After touring the grounds of Legends Ranch, complete with trees, horse stables and all the rustic touches of a former working horse ranch, they were smitten.

FAVORITE MEMORY

My favorite and most special part about the entire day was probably when Jason and I got to pray together before the ceremony and before even seeing each other. That, to me, meant so much. I remember being so incredibly nervous about the whole thing but as soon as I heard Jason’s voice (which was also super weird without being able to see his face! Especially since I hadn’t seen or talked to him all day long) I calmed down almost completely.

DETAILS + DECOR

Some of the rustic touches of the wedding included multiple sized glass cylinders with candles burning inside at the altar, perched atop old tree stumps. Tablescapes featured twisted driftwood with mason jars and wine bottles full of flowers and wine corks sprinkled throughout. The cake was modelled after an aspen tree that we carved our initials into.

Instead of pouring unity sand or lighting a candle, we had a wood board with three ropes on it and a verse — A cord of three strands is not easily broken, from Ecclesiastes 4:12. The two ropes on the outside represented us, with the one in the middle representing God. We braided the three ropes together which meant that we were tying our marriage in with God right in the middle.

More from their photographer, Taylored Photo Memories:

Like many couples Cassie and Mike were looking to accomplish their big day on a budget without incurring any debt. Cassie and Mike wanted to include all of their friends and family while being mindful of costs since they were paying for the wedding themselves. After nailing down the Legacy Golf Club in Henderson as their perfect venue, Cassie set her sights on coming up with all of the details. Cassie’s love for glitter tied in perfectly with their winter wedding theme and she and Mike would spray paint their wedding accessories gold if they did not come in the colors that they wanted. With the help of DIY tricks like these and websites like Etsy that offer customization, Cassie claims she was able to have total control over all of the details and how they would factor into their big day.
