Old Hollywood-inspired Styled Shoot at the Barrymore | Marie and Michael Photography

Retro Wedding at The Barrymore | Little Vegas Wedding

If you want to go Hollywood glam in Las Vegas, The Barrymore is a perfect venue to choose. It’s got this retro feel, full of golden details and decadent decor (like that wallpaper! Unf.)

I like to recommend it for smaller wedding parties because it’s got a patio and a built-in theme already. Here’s a gorgeous peek at the space in a styled shoot that evokes romance and glamour from two Austrian wedding photographers who did a little work while visiting the city recently.

Retro Wedding Reception at The Peppermill | POPography

Retro Reception at The Peppermill | Little Vegas Wedding

If you have ever had the pleasure of visiting The Peppermill, you will understand why I am so excited to share today’s wedding. And if you haven’t been … what are you waiting for!? It’s a kitschy classic that oozes old school Vegas style. Lots of neon, cozy couches and cheesy details served alongside big cocktails and diner classics. It’s a must go. Especially after you see how awesome a wedding reception there can be!

Lauren and Joe had a day full of amazing moments, from a first look at Cosmopolitan’s Chandelier Bar to cruising the Strip in an oversized Dodge Challenger, and of course, celebrating their wedding with loved ones.

WHY LAS VEGAS?

I first went to Vegas in 2008 with my best friend Charlie. I loved it out there so much. I said back then that if I was ever “stupid enough to get married” I would do it in Vegas…haha! Careful what you wish for. When Joe proposed to me the first thing I said (after yes!) was: Please can we do it in Vegas?

THE CEREMONY — Elvis on the Terrace at Vegas Weddings

it was dark and the fairylights on the gazebo were simply beautiful. It was a fun-filled romantic ceremony … we loved every second. I walked down the aisle to Can’t Help Falling in Love and my mum gave me away. We had 20 guests which was amazing considering my side of the wedding party were from the U.K. and Joe’s family are spread out across the U.S.

THE RECEPTION — The Peppermill

The Peppermill was an amazing place! The food is incredible and the ambiance was just perfect for us. I love the colours and the neon lights. Reminds me of old meets new Vegas. I made contact with Peggy, the owner, and asked if it would be possible for us to have our wedding reception there. She was more than happy to accommodate us and was really helpful. I had a purple colour theme and she even offered to order in purple napkins. I dropped my table decorations and favours in the day before and they laid them out beautifully for us. It was perfect! We opted for the normal menu but they do have set menus, too. As our wedding was quite late it was the best venue, being open 24/7. And there was no deadline or curfew. Three weeks later we had another reception in the U.K. for 70 people.

DIY DETAILS + DECOR

I made all the ladies in my wedding group a bracelet with a purple ribbon and a silver State of Nevada charm as a thank you gift. I also made the save the date note myself and all the wedding invitation inserts. The wedding favours were also DIY’d. I bought poker chips and stuck on some stickers I had made onto them. These were included with a thank you poem. I was trying to keep the costs low and the wedding personal.

FAVORITE MEMORY

There are so many. It was just incredible. Just being able to get married to the man I love, in one of my favourite cities in the world, surrounded by our friends and family was a dream come true. Our wedding had a live feed too so all our friends and family who couldn’t make it could watch. My dad also couldn’t make it out to Vegas for the wedding, but en route to the wedding chapel, Joe and I FaceTimed him in the U.K. He had a mini bottle of Champagne at the ready while he watched online (even though it was 3:30 a.m.)

LAS VEGAS WEDDING TIPS FROM LAUREN AND JOE

Be organized and do your research. Make sure you have an itinerary and that you get confirmations for everything. I didn’t see my actual wedding venue until two days before the wedding, but it was perfect. I spent hours online reading reviews and estimating travel times etc.

Modern MGM Grand Reception | Chrystal Stringer Photography

Real Weddings | Little Vegas Wedding

Lorie and Martin are two Albertans who headed to Sin City to get hitched in a modern Vegas way. Opting for an intimate guest list allowed them to indulge in their favourite restaurant for their reception and capture some absolutely magical photos of the day.

Lorie and Martin headed for MGM for the reception meal. Crush features family-style dining, which is perfect for a wedding reception, of course. The couple chose their favorite comfort foods meant to share, and along with their wedding party dined and celebrated together in a private room.

Glam Foundation Room Wedding at Mandalay Bay | The Amberlight Collective

Founation Room Mandalay Bay | Little Vegas Wedding Perched on top of Mandalay Bay’s tower is the House of Blues Foundation Room. This showstopper of a venue was the location McKenzy and Cole chose for their wedding ceremony and reception. Feminine pinks and Champagne colors paired with the deep, exotic interior of the Foundation Room. The bridal portraits taken inside are super dramatic and moody.

Then of course, there is that spectacular view from the rooftop. If you are looking for a skyhigh venue for an outdoor ceremony, you should definitely consider Foundation Room as an option.

More from The Amberlight Collective:

The day started out in McKenzy’s Flamingo hotel room, where she, and her closest girl friends and family were primping and getting ready for the day. I knew it was going to be a fun day, all the girls were already laughing, taking pics and having a good time. We travelled via limo down the Strip to Mandalay Bay, where we made our way to the Foundation Room on the top level of the hotel which looks straight up the Strip. The view was incredible! The vibe of the Foundation Room is unreal, and unlike anything else I’ve seen in Vegas. The walls look to be made of hand-carved wood, as well as having woven displays of bejewelled cloth hangings all around.

The ceremony was gorgeous and casual. Guests were seated on lounge chairs on the patio, while the couple and their wedding party stood in front of an ornate fireplace decorated with jewels and peach floral displays, matching the couple’s wedding color scheme. The coolest part of the ceremony was that it wasn’t too big, with a lot of guests so you had this awesome intimate space, all while looking overlooking the entire Strip. Following their vows, the same space was transformed into a lounge area for their reception. The couple and their closest friends and family danced the night away until it was time to depart for some more late night partying on Fremont Street.

Rustic Bicycle-Themed Flamingo Wedding from Alfred and Emma Photography

Flamingo Las Vegas Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding

Dax and Gee are Las Vegas locals who chose a Strip hotel to get married at. Gee says it was because it was “the only chapel that we’ve been in that didn’t feel cheesy and it felt very intimate.” The chocolate brown and light pink tones keep the chapel very modern and airy, it is one of my favorite Strip chapels, too.

These cyclists chose a tandem bike theme, adding in rustic details like burlap and handpainted signage. (Bikes also showed up at their cute engagement session at Spring Mountain Ranch!) Friends and family drew together to make almost everything at this event personalized by hand; from the decor and cake to the photography, a family member or close friend helped make it happen. Such beautiful work, and full of special meaning.

THE CEREMONY — Garden Chapel at Flamingo Las Vegas

The ceremony was very intimate. We only had our closest family and friends come for the reception since the maximum seating in the chapel was less than 60, but it was the best choice we made. The glass doors, marble floors and beautiful lighting made it ideal for photos.

THE RECEPTION — Maggiano’s Little Italy at Fashion Show Mall

To sum it up the reception was simple awesome! We had 110 guests and Maggiano’s gave us the best package out of anybody in town. The ambiance and family style dinner made it feel like a really big family gathering instead of a wedding reception. The view (of The Strip ) from the banquet hall is exquisite. It didn’t feel crowded or tight, the service was on-point, and all of our guests kept commenting on how much food there was and how they have never expected that kind of dinner for a wedding … and it was the least expensive package they had! And even when I had major brain lapse and had to make changes last minute (like right before we did our grand entrance) our banquet captain and coordinator at Maggiano’s made it happen with no fuss.

DETAILS + DECOR

Every decoration was DIY courtesy my sisters, moms, grandmothers and aunts! That included centerpieces, seating charts, baskets, pillows for the ring, candles and more. Both Dax and I are cyclists here in Vegas and that is why our theme was tandem bicycling!

FAVORITE MEMORY

What stood out the most at our wedding was the amount of love and support we got from our family and friends. In fact, most of our vendors were family and friends. My photographer was my brother-in-law who had to shoot alone as his wife and co-photographer was my matron-of-honor. Our videographer and DJ is a family friend, the photobooth came via a co-worker and our dessert table and cake were made by my sister-in-law and mother-in-law. Even our Pastor is a friend of ours; we were lucky!
