Gilded Desert Wedding Inspiration with Glam Vintage Vegas Style at Floyd Lamb Park

1950s-vegas-styled-wedding004

Mississippi-based photographer Lindsay Vallas attended this styled wedding shoot with 14 other photographers during the 2013 Wedding Portrait & Photography International (WPPI) conference this past March. The concept and styling which I would describe as “gilded 1950s desert wedding” came from Bensten Photography and Kelli West Photography.

Shot at Floyd Lamb State Park, this faux wedding featured 1950s details, a golden tablescape with peach and pale pastel tones atop Tiffany blue linens. The “bride” Lauren, even wore a golden gown with a cozy fur stole.

Vibrant, Elegant and Sophisticated Three Day Wedding, Part Two {Four Seasons}

four-seasons-vegas-wedding004

Are you ready for part two of Anita and Vishal’s incredible Four Seasons Las Vegas wedding photographed by Lin & Jirsa Photography? Yesterday featured the first two days of ceremony and festivities, culminating in a Moroccan inspired dance party and poolside affair. Feast your eyes now if you missed it!

Today the marriage ceremony and an elegant white and purple plated dinner reception are highlighted, again conceptualized and put into reality by the team at Shawna Yamamoto Event Design and wedding coordinator Ajita Chopra Events.

A joyous entrance with drums and dancing preceded Anita and Vishal’s arrival at their marriage ceremony. The ceremony decor featured a 12 foot high elevated red and gold aisle treatment with rich flowing drapery and flickering candles. The romantic ambiance was completed with overflowing red flowers just about anywhere you looked, from the petals delicately spread on the aisle, the curtain tiebacks and finally to the pomanders and swags hanging above. Anita and Vishal both looked stunning in their finery, draped with jai malas or floral garlands. Bangles, a red veil, red and gold heels, dazzling jewels and tikka completed Anita’s look.

The elegant ballroom reception that followed and closed out the three days of festivities featured a mix of round and long tables, dramatic lighting, fine linens, a glittering gold monogram, and architectural arrangements of calla lilies, white roses and sprays of other cream colored flowers. There was even a red carpet for guests to arrive upon!

Be sure to view the same day edit that cinematographers Avec Lumiere provided to see more of the wedding ceremonies, events and action. You can find the video at the bottom of the post. It’s a must see if you enjoyed the still photographs!

Romantic Rustic Wedding Inspiration Shoot {Legends Ranch}

Legends Ranch Romance Wedding - Emily Ku Photo

I’m super excited about today’s post! Captured by Emily Ku Photography, this styled wedding post is pure eye candy! This inspiration shoot was set up and styled by two other Las Vegas wedding photographers, Kristen Joy and Elizabeth Le.

Pulling together elements of vintage French style, some completely glamorous details and setting it up at the rustic Legends Ranch, they hoped to and successfully created a Vintage French theme with a sophisticated twist. As Emily writes: “I can’t even describe how incredible they are because they literally put this together in a matter of days, and I know it was an insane amount of work to pull this off.” I agree!

Legends Ranch is a gorgeous venue, and the props provided by The Wooden Trunk like wine barrels and vintage suitcases paired well with the existing details you happen to find on real working ranches like barns, wagon wheels and hay bales. I love the unexpected sequin covered linens – reminds me of my days as a competitive figure skater! They are just the right amount of glam to offset the country chic details, pale pinks and delicate china.

The models were a real life couple, Shelly and Reese, and they brought some emotion to the photos, making it feel like a real wedding instead of a faux one. Love this idea and the photos. Take a look below and get those creative juices flowing!

The black and white cake was accented with sugar flowers. Yes! Those are sugar, not real blooms. And “stamped” onto the fondant were postmarks.

Stunningly Modern Ballroom Wedding {Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas}

mandarin oriental vegas wedding

Today’s beautiful wedding comes courtesy Calvin Yao at Fisheye Photos. He photographed Julie and Kyle’s wedding at Mandarin Oriental and I was literally shaking with anticipation at hitting publish on this one! It’s full of dreamy details, architectural bridal portraits and a few teary eyes…

Kyle (from California) and Julie (from Guam) met at university in New York, so it goes without saying that attendees at their wedding were from all over the globe. Las Vegas was the perfect solution because not only being a central meeting spot, but it allowed guests to have a fun wedding weekend. The Mandarin Oriental played a key role in providing the not-too-Vegas wedding that Julie and Kyle wanted. Purple uplighting, golden details and soft floral touches by Flowers of the Field accented this classy affair.

Shimmering gold sequined mini dresses for the bridesmaids and the lights glittering through the windows of the ballroom reception remind you that although you are in the calm and serene Mandarin Oriental…this is still Las Vegas! I love the variety of portraits the couple got just by walking a short distance out of the Mandarin, too. I’m a sucker for modern architecture and love CityCenter for its huge array of photo opportunities.

If you’ve had the pleasure of being in any Mandarin Oriental property, you will know that they are incredibly service oriented. Julie raves about the on site event planners, saying the staff “…was so easy to work with in terms of planning a wedding from afar.  They were basically my day of coordinator, and I can’t speak highly enough about their staff and service.”

The wedding ceremony took place in Ballroom A of Mandarin Oriental, and then post-vows the guests moved to the stunning and spacious Ballroom C for the reception. With full pane windows that provided a view of The Strip and a balcony overlooking Las Vegas Boulevard below, the room was a beautiful option for this completely modern destination Vegas wedding!
