Las Vegas Winter Woodland Wedding Inspiration from Chelsea Nicole Photography

Winter Wedding Inspiration in Las Vegas | Chelsea Nicole Photography | Featured on Little Vegas Wedding

Ski lifts, snow drifts and wedding style, oh my! It’s about that time again — Christmas in July! Hard to believe, but exactly five months from today, a chill will be in the air and Christmas will be upon us. This isn’t much consolation right now as Las Vegas hovers around the 110°F / 40°C mark this week, but let today’s wedding inspiration take you away from the heat for just a few blissful moments.

I’m in love with this breath of fresh (and cool!) air from Chelsea Nicole Photography in the form of a styled shoot at Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort (a beautiful venue I’ve featured before.) Magical, snow-covered scenery and fairytale-like forests paired with beautiful details styled by Scheme Events will transport you with its gorgeous wedding theme inspired by the wintery woodland, a world away from Las Vegas!

Throwback Thursday: Let It Snow

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. Today’s theme is: SNOW!

Okay, I know I’m going to catch some flack for this one since it’s not even September yet, but I don’t care. As a winter born snowbaby, I am missing the white stuff. I just spent a year and a half living snow-free in the only tropical region of Japan, and was living in D.C. for most of last winter. These days I live in the mountains of Canada, not actually in Vegas, and I’m DYING to get the ski season started. (Two more months – grumble, grumble)

Now, I know not everyone loves snow as much as I do, so I’ll satisfied my craving by posting some links to unexpected snowy engagement and wedding photos taken in and around Las Vegas. To be fair many of these photos were taken at Mount Charleston (except for one magical wedding which saw snow indoors) which does see snow reasonably often. As luck would have it I was in Vegas the year of the biggest snowstorm in 30 years though, so although rare, it can happen. See? Snow is my destiny!

Okay, now get out there and really treasure the last months of warm weather! Also feel free to remind me about this post when I complain about driving in a mountain snowstorm. Sigh.

Modern French Bistro Style Wedding {Paris Las Vegas + Bouchon}

french-wedding030

Confession time: this wedding today made my mouth water. I love the restaurant, Bouchon, which hosted the reception for Gloria and Ted following their wedding ceremony at Paris Las Vegas. All this French gourmet food eyecandy made posting about this wedding a very difficult thing indeed!

This very French-inspired wedding featuring pops of blue, chic accessories, a macaron-laden cake and of course, the Eiffel Tower, was photographed by the husband and wife team of The Emerics. Because it was a December wedding, there were appropriate colors – silver and blue dominated in the decor and linens, barren branches and snowflake details were featured and the bridesmaids received warm pashmina wraps as gifts.

Planning the 70 guest wedding from Florida was easy, said Gloria. It was mostly conducted via email and phone. The staff and service (and food!) at Bouchon were described as “exquisite”, and Gloria’s contact, Heather, at Paris Las Vegas was “amazing” with helping Gloria plan all of the ceremony details in the cathedral-style Chappelle du Paradis.

Gloria’s tip for other brides and grooms planning their destination Vegas wedding: “Relax, you’re in good hands.”

In case you’re wondering (I know I was – I also keep a food blog!) here was the full menu for the meal that was served privately in the main dining room of Bouchon: To start, butternut squash soup with cranberry emulsion or mixed green salad with warm goat cheese, herbes de Provence and a red wine vinaigrette. Main entrees were a choice of sauteed Scottish salmon with farro, roasted squash and beurre rouge or roasted chicken with savory jus along with Brussels sprouts, parsnips and bacon lardons or flatiron steak with pureed potatoes, shallots and maître d’hôtel butter.  Tiny bite-sized mignardises followed then that absolutely immaculate macaron covered citrus flavored gâteau.

Bouchon’s an excellent choice, but if you are seeking more options for a restaurant on the Strip to hold your wedding reception, look no further than this post “6 Restaurants Perfect for your Las Vegas Wedding Reception” for some ideas on where to start.

What a gorgeous wedding and amazing looking meal. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go daydream about Bouchon’s croque-madame with that huge haystack sized pile of frites they serve it with. Yum….
