Amanda and Dan are a couple of crazy Canucks who were married in the very fun Pop Up Chapel at Cosmopolitan, and Mike L Photography was there to take all the amazing images to follow.
Amanda said that she originally started to plan for a wedding in the newly renovated Skyline Chapel at Quad, but after feeling like there were so many add ons and extra costs – they jumped ship to the seasonal Pop Up Chapel. With no extra fees for an outside photographer or florist, plus the option to play their own music, it worked out perfectly!
The comicbook-esque paper origami bouquets and boutonnieres with added superhero action figures were handmade by the bride (instructions for the projects can be found here and here) How awesome and funky are they!?
After the ceremony, and before the reception, the wedding party limo’d over to the Welcome to Las Vegas sign and took some atmospheric bridal party shots. What an awesome looking bridal party. Best Woman in a suit? Yes, please! When all the hard posing work was done, it was time for drinks, food and celebration at Firefly Tapas Kitchen and Bar, where the guests drank sangria and mojitos from the open bar while sampling paella, stuffed dates, camarones ajillo and many other Spanish treats.
Amanda said she booked Mike & Courtney to do their photos after following their work for three years, and honestly – these photos do not disappoint. And you should really go read the story about how they started dating on Mike L’s blog. It’s pretty hilarious.

I am so in love with this wedding inspiration shoot! The idea, styling and photos come from MegRuth. Featuring feathers, ombre and succulents, this is a very on trend wedding concept, I think. And it even uses a super trendy, up-and-coming area of Vegas as the location – the Arts District, downtown.
This is the gorgeous invitation suite created by SHE Paperie.
THOSE LASHES! Lengthened and emphasized by Ciao Bella Studio and Your Beauty Call, respectively.
I love the idea of the wedding blanket ceremony being woven into the ceremony. It’s a lovely tradition, it makes for amazing photos and is an instant heirloom.
I am obsessed with ombre and dip dying to begin with, so I went nuts when I saw this cake. It’s a desert sunset cake by Gimme Some Sugar.
You can see more photos of this shoot on Meg’s blog, and also in the fabulous Style Me Pretty feature here! She even shared some how-tos for lots of the DIY elements that were in this shoot.

This beautiful 1920s styled wedding took place at the Four Seasons in Vegas, and was shot by Ron Miller. This couple has known eachother since they were 10 years old! The wedding was a perfect marriage of 1920s fashion and libations – just look at the custom drink menu!
Thanks for sharing, Ron.
LOVE the food shots. A request: more food shots on LVW in future, please!

As someone who looks at a lot of weddings every day, the ones that reach out to me are the ones with smiling faces, real emotion and heartfelt details. (Okay, and I admit it…great shoes, too.) I think that is why I love this wedding that comes from MegRuth. It’s so crafty and original, you can’t help but smile when you look at the photos.
The bride and groom of today’s wedding are graphic designers, and you can see their original touches all across the wedding, from their personally designed letterpress invitations to the handmade-by-a-friend wedding gown. Also – there are pies at this wedding. PIES! I’m sold.
More of this handcrafted wedding can be seen over at Meg’s blog.

#1 reason you should always enter a photographer’s giveaway for a wedding shoot or shoot of any kind? You could get amazing photos like these, from MegRuth Photo. The couple featured had entered a contest for wedding photos (actually the groom did, and he kept the fact that he won a secret from his bride) and Meg went out to shoot their event at the then Loews Las Vegas resort (now the Westin Lake Las Vegas).
The rich jewel tones, fantastic floral details (from Enchanted Florist) and happy smiles are gorgeous. Plus the party looks like it was a blast!
