Airy Outdoor Skyline Terrace Suite Ceremony at MGM Grand | Taylored Photo Memories

MGM Terrace Suite | Little Vegas Wedding
Teela and Robert hosted exchanged their vows backed by a panoramic view of the Strip from their MGM Grand Skyline Terrace Suite. With over 800-square-feet of patio space, it was more than spacious for their intimate guestlist of family and friends. Luxury details filled the suite, from the bride’s silver heels to the sophisticated wedding cake. Perfect for the modern space.

After getting emotional on the terrace, the party continued indoors with a chic cake and Champagne reception. They celebrated their marriage by sharing their first dance outdoors, the lights on the Strip flickering on hotel by hotel behind them.

In-suite Ceremony at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas | Erik and Alicia Photography

Cosmopolitan Suite Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding
Kimberly and Jamie hosted a small group of their closest friends and family for an intimate ceremony in a suite at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. Vows before Champagne and cupcakes and that view! While I am jealous of their fabulous wedding venue I have to say I’m even more jealous of Kimberly’s bridal shoe choice. Comfortable custom Chucks? Sign me up.

The next day the couple had a post-wedding shoot at The Neon Museum’s Boneyard. Perfect way to wind down after a hectic few days.

Swank Wedding in a Palms SkyVilla | Apaige Photography

Palms SkyVilla | Little Vegas Wedding
Ah, Las Vegas. City of views. For some, nothing but a suite overlooking the iconic Bellagio fountains will do. But I think the view is better just a few blocks off the Strip from a hotel such as Hard Rock, MGM Signature or today’s feature hotel: Palms. Watching the lights flicker on as the sun goes down is an amazing sight. I’ve long been curious about the suites high in the sky at Palms with their cantilevered pools hanging off the edge so precariously. Today’s reception brings you right into those amazing SkyVillas.

Madi and Tim ditched their traditional wedding when planning got too intense. Opting for a huge suite and a small guestlist, they exchanged vows in just a few minutes at Chapel of the Flowers, barely pausing the party on the bus to do so. I love the energy these two bring and am so happy to be finally sharing their wedding. (Seriously, I’ve been putting this post off forever, I’m so excited to finally hit publish!)

And if you can’t get enough of this suite, head back in the archives for this other feature wedding in a SkyVilla.

WHY LAS VEGAS?

Originally we had a huge wedding planned at home, with a down payment on the venue and everything. It was becoming too stressful doing the guest list, seating arrangements, centerpiece designs and everything else. Vegas has always been special to my husband and I so one morning when we woke up I just asked, “Do you want to get married in Vegas?” He replied, “I thought you’d never ask!”

THE CEREMONY — CHAPEL OF THE FLOWERS

It was perfect: five minutes, in and out. We said our “I dos” and go back on the party bus.

THE RECEPTION — SKYVILLA AT PALMS

Our reception was magical. We stayed in the Palms SkyVilla. It’s 6,000-sq.-ft. with a pool hanging off of the side. We served In-N-Out Burgers and Chronic Tacos, the best reception food ever.

FAVORITE MEMORY

Honestly, I can’t choose a favorite memory, it was the best day of my life. If I had to choose one it would possibly be twirling under these huge pillars on the Strip with my husband. Just the Strip in general, actually. And of course the fantastic villa with a butler, and having 30 of our closest friends and family there. See, I couldn’t pick just one!

A TIP FOR YOUR VEGAS WEDDING FROM MADI AND TIM

DON’T PLAN. Book a room, get a reservation for where you want to get married…and enjoy the moment. Nothing else needs to be planned. Your wedding should be stress-free, it should only be about love, laughter and happiness. Vegas is the perfect place to get married if you want to have the best wedding ever.

Chic Vow Renewal at Cosmopolitan | Clivabeth Photography

Cosmopolitan Vow Renewal | Little Vegas Wedding

For couples lucky enough to stay at Cosmopolitan, you know it’s the right amount of sexy and chic with romantic and intimate, making it perfect for a romantic getaway, honeymoon or, in the case of today’s couple, a vow renewal.

Damon and Alemnesh celebrated 10 years together with an Elvis renewal followed by a cake cutting and Champagne celebration with their closest loved ones in a stunning wraparound terrace suite. There were little thank you bags with hangover recovery kits for guests and sweet treats, too, all in a classic red and black palette. They went for a fun theme with little reminders of The Hangover around the suite. Can you spot all of the references?

Modern MGM Grand Wedding from Heather Elizabeth Photography

MGM Grand Skyline Terrace Suite | Little Vegas Wedding

Many of you marrying at locations where you cannot use an outside photographer for your ceremony often ask me if it’s worthwhile to hire a separate photographer in addition to the hotel photographer. My answer is always yes. Although your photographer often will not be able to photograph the actual wedding ceremony, they can get amazing photos like the ones in Madison and Matthew’s wedding today.

Their getting ready shots and first look were captured in that oh-so-stylish MGM Grand Skyline Terrace suite. (As well as Madison’s boudoir shots!) This super modern and sexy set of wedding photos set the scene for an intimate Vegas wedding with a host of events and parties over the week — my favorite kind!

WHY LAS VEGAS?

It seemed spontaneous and it was an easy access destination for our world-wide guest list.  My husband is Canadian and at the time I lived in Seattle, Washington. We had friends and family come from all over: Whistler, Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Seattle, San Francisco, London, Barcelona and even as far as Sydney, Australia!

THE CEREMONY — Gazebo at Mon Bel Ami

The ceremony was magical! It was dark and the gazebo was lit up with candles and strung lights. We had 50 of our closest family and friends there to show their love and support! I walked down the isle to Cosmic Love by Florence and the Machine. Our ceremony was short and sweet with so much personalization. We had prepared our own vows for each other and as we walked down as husband and wife Home by Edward Sharpe played throughout the gazebo.

THE RECEPTION — Firefly Tapas Bar

Firefly was amazing they had a room set up for us with linens matching our wedding colors, microphones for speeches, and beautiful candles lit everywhere! We ended up having 70 guests for dinner instead of 50 and they did not skip a beat! The service was superb, too! Our group was a very lively bunch and we continued the excitement to our rooftop terrace suite at the MGM where we had our first dance followed by many Champagne toasts. It was such a beautiful evening.

FAVORITE MEMORY

My stand-out moment was seeing my husband for the first time. The morning went by so fast with hair, makeup, and boudoir photos. I think the first time I really took a deep breath was when I met him out on the balcony of our suite, the sun was shining and I felt that our love was radiating which you can tell from our photos.

LAS VEGAS WEDDING TIPS FROM MADISON + MATTHEW

I think people have a certain idea of what a Vegas wedding looks like, but honestly you can make it whatever you have been dreaming of. The first thing I had to tell people when I told them I was getting married in Vegas is, No…Elvis is not performing at my wedding. Vegas can be inexpensive (well, for a wedding) and still very classy.

GUESTCOUNT + BUDGET

We ended up spending more money at the pool parties and clubs the days surrounding the wedding, thanks to an $8,000 MGM Wet Republic pool party ;) But all in all $9,000 for 50-70 people? Not bad at all.
