If we’re talking wedding venues with spectacular views, the rooftop at Platinum Hotel & Spa has to rank high on that list. Meg and Ben’s hip wedding with DIY projects galore at Platinum was photographed by Brilliant Imagery and included a rocking party complete with karaoke and interpretive dances. (Um – awesome!) You will not only love the always amazing views from the hotel’s skydeck, but all of the handmade details.
The paper goods were made by Meg herself – in fact, the wedding inspired her and she now runs her own company NupptialDesigns, specializing in wedding items. A baker friend from D.C. unable to supply a cake for their destination wedding made an amazing cake topper that combined the TV show “Parks and Recreation” with the Green Bay Packers.
Meg’s bouquet included kale, her favorite vegetable, and was wrapped in doilies made by Ben’s grandmother. The blazing blue bottle centerpieces were from Saratoga Springs Water Company, and it was the cobalt blue and silver colors that inspired the entire wedding palette.

The color purple: it’s regal, majestic and is absolutely gorgeous for a wedding palette since so many shades work well together – just like at Amy and Matt’s wedding!
After dating for almost 10 years, this couple who met in high school tied the knot at DragonRidge Country Club in Henderson on an absolutely perfect June day. The couple travelled from Colorado for their destination wedding at the stunning golf club grounds, which featured lush floral and touches of royal purple all throughout. Amy’s bouquet is gorgeous in nearly all white, with a touch of purple in the ombre purple calla lilies.
j anne photography captured the details and emotional moments of the day – including not only Amy and Matt’s first look but Amy’s first look with her father and grandfather. The wedding was full of touching moments like that – for example, Amy’s Nana putting on an antique pearl necklace, and later receiving a bouquet from Amy during a dance.
But, onto the photos of this romantic, sentimental wedding.
Vendor and Venue Details:
Photographer: j anne photography / Wedding Venue: Poolside at DragonRidge Country Club / Reception Venue: Grand Highlands Ballroom at DragonRidge Country Club / Hair + Makeup: Your Beauty Call / Floral: ByDzign / Entertainment: DJ Mike Fox / Bride’s Shoes: Enzo Angiolini
The heirloom necklace Amy wore was composed of a pearl strand from a grandmother who had passed away, and a charm from her Nana.
The groom holding the bouquet! Love it.
Let today’s destination wedding take you away! Courtney and Stephen came from Canada to be married at the chic Four Seasons Las Vegas in a very modern outdoor ceremony and reception. An airy palette of pink, white and gold gave the day a romantic, vintage feel.
The details and emotions were artfully captured by Glass Jar Photography: from the couple’s shoot at the always funky retro Boneyard at the Neon Museum the day before the wedding to the tropical fountain side ceremony and reception fun that followed. What kind of reception fun? Photobooth action, lots of dancing, a hand rolled cigar station and a dessert and sweets bar!

The first thing I noticed from today’s wedding? The bride Ashley’s absolutely dazzling smile. Every single photo, it looks like she is having the time of her life – and so does everyone else attending. This destination wedding photographed by j. anne photography at Westin Lake Las Vegas transformed the stunning hotel venue into a theatre, if only for one night.
A palette of vibrant marine blue with pops of yellow energized the overall theme which combined theatre inspired and art deco details. The bride, who is a professional dancer, came to Las Vegas with her husband all the way from Australia. I love the “costume change” part way through the reception – Ashley exchanges her full ballroom style tulle skirt for a sexier, more fitted version!

Welcome to Throwback Thursday, when we delve into the archives of Las Vegas photographers, wedding vendors and wedding planner blogs to reveal weddings you may have missed.
Lake Las Vegas is a world unto itself and is, quite frankly, a breath of fresh air. Literally. European inspired architecture, cobbled streets and water all around you…a few Lake Las Vegas resorts offer weddings, and they’re all stunning, each with a different style, theme and venue offerings. (You can even get married on a boat!) It’s also a great place to keep in mind for exceptional engagement photos.
Stay tuned for a more recent Lake Las Vegas wedding at the Westin featured on the blog tomorrow. The blue and yellow palette and the theme for this destination affair are must sees!
