Sparkling Legacy Golf Club Wedding | Taylored Photo Memories

Legacy Golf Club | Little Vegas Wedding

Cassie and Mike took advantage of being locals to totally customized their country club wedding. Choosing shades of royal purple and glittery accents, this pair created a romantic wedding day that fit their budget thanks to utilizing DIY skills and Etsy vendors. Their exit is spectacular and created a sparkling finish to what was a gorgeous, personalized celebration.

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.

Country-style El Dorado Elopement | Jenna Ebert Photography

El Dorado Ghost Town | Little Vegas Wedding

Mary and Christian brought a touch of country in the desert for their El Dorado elopement. Mary looked amazing rocking those boots and flower crown for the ceremony and fit in so perfectly with the eclectic, whimsical charm of the venue. Simple, stunning, secret.

How amazing is that stained glass/giant tree altar by the way?

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.

Delightful Desert Elopement from City Wedding Tours

Calico Basin | Little Vegas Wedding

Lately I’ve been hearing some rumblings that perhaps Calico Basin and Red Rock Canyon aren’t as accessible to weddings as they once were, due to some recent changes to the permit system.

However, there is no denying the place is gorgeous. Incredible rock formations, beautiful colors and a special intimacy that can only come from getting married in the natural beauty of the desert. Kelsey and Adam chose to marry (after getting engaged) there before joining friends and family at a festive reception after. Sounds perfect for this down-to-earth couple who also chose to support artisans where ever they could in their wedding day.

THE CEREMONY — Calico Basin at Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon is our favorite spot in Las Vegas. We wanted an outdoor wedding and Red Rock is such a beautiful location it was the obvious choice. It was the location Adam proposed to me as well, so it holds a lot of memories for us. We also wanted the reception festivities to stay within the Summerlin area, so Red Rock made an easy venue to get between the different locations for the wedding festivities.

DIY DETAILS + DECOR

(We were going for) simple, natural, and as DIY as possible. We wanted to keep it small and intimate with a personal touch. We wanted our actual wedding ceremony private to keep it as intimate as possible, but we opened up our reception to close friends and family. We kept it simple by holding the reception party at Adam’s parent’s house. We had an open bar so people could make their own drinks as they pleased, and the majority of the food was homemade. All decorations were either handmade or purchased through Etsy to support independent artists. We had a succulent/desert theme which we incorporated through our colors (greens and purples with highlights of gold and silver) and flowers (succulent centerpieces and succulent bouquet and boutonniere). We made our own wedding invitations, centerpieces and signs.

FAVORITE MEMORY

My favorite part of the planning process was just being able to enjoy the reward of all of our hard work at the great reception party we had. While we kept our wedding simple there was still a lot of planning involved. It was nice to be able to enjoy all of the work everyone had put in to make our day so special. Another part I enjoyed was being able to support independent artists. Etsy was a great resource and I feel like a lot of our wedding items were truly unique and original.

LAS VEGAS WEDDING TIPS FROM

Make a lot of lists! The only thing that kept me organized was making lists. It felt satisfying being able to mark stuff off as we went along. At the end of everything there was only one or two things that I had forgotten, but they were minor and not really significant. If I had not used lists to keep myself organized a lot more would have been forgotten! Another good thing to remember is that everything will still be okay even if something is missed or goes wrong. There’s always something that’s going to go wrong but it’s such a big day and you are surrounded by such loving and supportive people that no one would really care if you forgot to put out a certain favor or sign, etc. No one knows the difference and they’re most likely having a good time anyway!

5 Favorites: Garden Wedding Venues in Las Vegas

Best Garden Wedding Venues  | LIttle Vegas Wedding

Today’s venue spotlight falls on my five favorite garden wedding venues in Las Vegas. Despite being in a desert, Las Vegas takes gardening seriously, with many gorgeous parks, venues and botanical gardens to enjoy. From traditional gardens to more desert, xeric landscaped ones, check out these options!

Venus Garden Caesars Palace | Little Vegas Wedding Venue Guide

Venus Gardens at Caesars Palace

Caesars Palace has a few options for garden weddings, but Venus Gardens catches my eye because of the perfect combination of classic Roman architecture and privacy. It’s a little bit themed, but in a classy way.

Beautiful additions like a domed temple, stone bench seating, tiled aisle (say that three times fast!) and a koi pond add special little details and make this garden a true gem. If you catch it at the right time of year, the garden is exploding with flowers. This is one of the larger garden options, seating up to 114 people, and Caesars also permits outside photographers.

Frame House at Springs Preserve

With more than 180 acres featuring an amazing array of walking paths and nature trails, Frame House at Springs Preserve is just one of my favorite venues for a wedding. In fact, I’m not sure where to start: there are more than 10 garden/outdoor venue choices at the Springs for weddings! Although I was married at the Gardens Arboretum, these days I’m more partial to Frame House.

This intimate covered space is nestled amongst some of the prettiest floral displays in the garden, and very near to cactus alley. It’s quiet, private and can be very green — yet is protected from the midday sun. Just lovely for wedding ceremonies of up to 45 guests.

Garden Romance at Venetian

Although the canals and faux Venice-style facades of the shopping mall get all the attention, there are some truly lovely European terraced gardens around the pools at Venetian. For smaller elopements and weddings, the Garden Romance package offers a standing room only ceremony for 10 guests set in a side garden of the Venezia Courtyard. This romantic spot has you surrounded by hedges and lush greenery as well as Italian-style sculptures. Of course, the one downside is that like many other Strip hotels, they will not allow you to use an outside photographer.

Garden Gazebo at JW Marriott Las Vegas

With an extraordinary 54 acres of landscaped grounds, gardens and waterscapes to choose from, weddings at JW Marriott are hard NOT to have in a gorgeous garden! The Garden Gazebo combines a beautiful structure as a backdrop for your vows, while still surrounded by the amazing landscaping. Perfect for weddings of 80 to 200 people, this is a great off Strip venue for slightly larger weddings.

Emerald at Queensridge

Another off Strip choice, Emerald at Queensridge is an all-in-one banquet facility that just so happens to have an elegant garden for wedding ceremonies. Get ready on-site in the luxurious facilities before you walk the aisle under huge trees, then head inside to celebrate in the chic (and high-tech!) ballroom setting. The courtyard is beautiful not only for ceremonies but for photos, too, and looks beautiful day or night.
