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.

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!

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.

Casual Villa Wedding in Las Vegas | Mike L. Photography

Villa Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding

Lindsay and Ryan held their wedding in a fabulous villa they rented just for the occasion, using the opportunity to fill it with vintage touches. Going for an antique shop feel, the couple hung parasols and bistro lights above, and filled the tables with ornate frames and colorful glass vases.

The tables were super pretty, from the umbrella shaped sugar cookie favors to a custom mix with music created by Lindsay and Ryan from the wedding. (The pair met while working at Tower Records in Vegas.) I think the dessert table has to be the crowing glory though: it’s a huge Rice Krispie cube (complete with a “bite” taken out as a nod to an episode of The Simpsons) and mini bundt cakes. A stunning laidback affair with a casual vibe that is just infused with personal details.

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.
