Neon Museum Breakfast Wedding | Brilliant Imagery

Neon Museum | Little Vegas Wedding

One of the biggest advantages to a Vegas wedding has to be the flexibility in terms of timing. Extra important due to the heat from May through September. An afternoon wedding too hot with too flat of light? Try a night ceremony. Or, better yet: a fun breakfast ceremony.

Jake and Elena went just that route, hosting an incredible early morning ceremony at the Neon Museum right in the Boneyard, complete with mimosas and a doughnut bar. Later they moved everyone over to Mundo (then located at World Market Center) for a lunch reception. Read on for all the details from this couple.

WHY LAS VEGAS?

After searching for venues in Texas without much luck I remembered coming across a Thrillist article about the Neon Museum. In all our trips to Vegas we never made it there for sightseeing, though. I thought I’d inquire to see if they did weddings and much to my delight they did and at a reasonable price!

THE CEREMONY — Boneyard at The Neon Museum

It was so great! We were crazy enough to decide to get married in Vegas in August and I was determined to have an outdoor wedding so I knew we had to do it early in the day so as not to give our guests heat stroke. With a morning ceremony the feel was more informal yet still nice, which I loved as we weren’t looking to have a traditional wedding that our guests have been to many times over. We wanted something memorable and fun and it was that and then some.

THE RECEPTION — Mundo

We were transported by private bus from the Neon Museum to Mundo for our reception. It was more of a lunch reception. The majority of the guestlist live in Texas, a state heavily influenced by Mexican culture, so we knew our friends and family would enjoy a lunch with some Latin flair. Mundo did not disappoint both with its excellent cuisine and its fun and funky atmosphere! Instead of a traditional wedding cake we served wedding CHURROS! How fun is that?!

DIY DETAILS + DECOR

We chose to go with a color palette that reflected the colors of the desert. Nude, terracotta, cactus or sage green, lilac/lavender, light pink/blush, mustard and pale yellow were all incorporated. I didn’t want anything too dramatic or bold since we were getting married in the morning, so we went with soft and muted. The girls picked their own dresses in shades of pink and the boys were in matching lavender shirts with deep purple ties: the color of my husband’s collegeM Texas Christian University, with khaki slacks. I carried a simple bouquet of white tulips while the girls carried bouquets in shades of dusty pink, ivory and mustard yellow.

FAVORITE MEMORY

I loved everything about our wedding day. From primping with my gals over Champagne and breakfast in our room at the Aria pre-ceremony, to the fun and colorful atmosphere of our morning ceremony at the Neon Museum. Then the delicious food and cocktails and fun photo ops with the teal wingback and birdcage chairs at Mundo to the after party at the pool at Aria that afternoon. If I had to pick a specific element though it would have to be the doughnut and mimosa bar we served during our ceremony at the Neon Museum. We are known to be the Among our friends and family we are known to be doughnut and Champagne lovers so it was our way of putting our “stamp” and a personal touch that played out perfectly with our morning ceremony. Since we incorporated the breakfast element at the ceremony we decided to go with serving lunch at our reception.

LAS VEGAS WEDDING TIPS FROM JAKE AND ELENA

If our budget allowed I would’ve hired a wedding planner to help me with details. That’s something I would highly recommend especially for brides trying to plan from another city. It would’ve alleviated so much stress since I wasn’t very familiar with the wedding scene in Las Vegas. I would also hire private transportation to take you around town if your ceremony and reception are not at the hotel you and your guests are staying at and especially if the ceremony and reception are at different locations as were ours.

Rustic Wedding at The Grove in Reno| Jeramie Lu Photography

Grove Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding

Normally I don’t feature weddings held outside of the immediate Vegas area, but I thought this wedding held in Reno was lovely. The country feel of Jessica and Joshua’s wedding included a fresh pastel palette with rustic details. Combined with those amazing bridal portraits and the adorable first look are fabulous.

Okay, and the little bridal pug is completely adorable. You all know how I feel about dogs at weddings. Viva Las … Reno?

Glam Foundation Room Wedding at Mandalay Bay | The Amberlight Collective

Founation Room Mandalay Bay | Little Vegas Wedding Perched on top of Mandalay Bay’s tower is the House of Blues Foundation Room. This showstopper of a venue was the location McKenzy and Cole chose for their wedding ceremony and reception. Feminine pinks and Champagne colors paired with the deep, exotic interior of the Foundation Room. The bridal portraits taken inside are super dramatic and moody.

Then of course, there is that spectacular view from the rooftop. If you are looking for a skyhigh venue for an outdoor ceremony, you should definitely consider Foundation Room as an option.

More from The Amberlight Collective:

The day started out in McKenzy’s Flamingo hotel room, where she, and her closest girl friends and family were primping and getting ready for the day. I knew it was going to be a fun day, all the girls were already laughing, taking pics and having a good time. We travelled via limo down the Strip to Mandalay Bay, where we made our way to the Foundation Room on the top level of the hotel which looks straight up the Strip. The view was incredible! The vibe of the Foundation Room is unreal, and unlike anything else I’ve seen in Vegas. The walls look to be made of hand-carved wood, as well as having woven displays of bejewelled cloth hangings all around.

The ceremony was gorgeous and casual. Guests were seated on lounge chairs on the patio, while the couple and their wedding party stood in front of an ornate fireplace decorated with jewels and peach floral displays, matching the couple’s wedding color scheme. The coolest part of the ceremony was that it wasn’t too big, with a lot of guests so you had this awesome intimate space, all while looking overlooking the entire Strip. Following their vows, the same space was transformed into a lounge area for their reception. The couple and their closest friends and family danced the night away until it was time to depart for some more late night partying on Fremont Street.

Modern Wedding at The Plaza at Whitney Ranch | Anchor + Veil Photography

Whitney Ranch | Little Vegas Wedding

Kimi and Victor hosted their destination wedding at The Plaza at Whitney Ranch in an emotional day. (How cute is their first look!?) Purple — which seems to be the hottest color on LVW this year — factored highly, showing up in the decor, paper bouquets and more.

I’m totally in love with the on Strip portraits they got, though. So incredible. It’s like they’re in a world of their own.

Simple, Romantic Desert Wedding Style by Ivory Lime Photography

Simple Desert Elopement | Little Vegas Wedding

One of my favourite Vegas events (that I have yet to attend) is the annual Wedding and Portrait Photographers International conference. Known as WPPI, this event hosts thousands of photographers in Las Vegas every spring. Many photographers attend learning sessions, pay to access models and styled shoot set ups to try new thing and add to their portfolio and network. Naturally a time of renewal, this spring conference is great for amazingly imaginative styled shoots and inspiration, too, much of which I get to share with you, dear readers!

We’ll kick things off with a simple elopement-style shoot that showcases the natural simplicity of desert scenery and a couple’s intimacy. Rustic detailing, a vintage wedding dress and handmade accessories turn it into a gorgeous concept, perfect for low key couples. Can’t you just imagine these two whipping around the desert in a dune buggy in their wedding gear? Of course, you know I had to include it because of that darn cute dog, too!
