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!

Rustic Bicycle-Themed Flamingo Wedding from Alfred and Emma Photography

Flamingo Las Vegas Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding

Dax and Gee are Las Vegas locals who chose a Strip hotel to get married at. Gee says it was because it was “the only chapel that we’ve been in that didn’t feel cheesy and it felt very intimate.” The chocolate brown and light pink tones keep the chapel very modern and airy, it is one of my favorite Strip chapels, too.

These cyclists chose a tandem bike theme, adding in rustic details like burlap and handpainted signage. (Bikes also showed up at their cute engagement session at Spring Mountain Ranch!) Friends and family drew together to make almost everything at this event personalized by hand; from the decor and cake to the photography, a family member or close friend helped make it happen. Such beautiful work, and full of special meaning.

THE CEREMONY — Garden Chapel at Flamingo Las Vegas

The ceremony was very intimate. We only had our closest family and friends come for the reception since the maximum seating in the chapel was less than 60, but it was the best choice we made. The glass doors, marble floors and beautiful lighting made it ideal for photos.

THE RECEPTION — Maggiano’s Little Italy at Fashion Show Mall

To sum it up the reception was simple awesome! We had 110 guests and Maggiano’s gave us the best package out of anybody in town. The ambiance and family style dinner made it feel like a really big family gathering instead of a wedding reception. The view (of The Strip ) from the banquet hall is exquisite. It didn’t feel crowded or tight, the service was on-point, and all of our guests kept commenting on how much food there was and how they have never expected that kind of dinner for a wedding … and it was the least expensive package they had! And even when I had major brain lapse and had to make changes last minute (like right before we did our grand entrance) our banquet captain and coordinator at Maggiano’s made it happen with no fuss.

DETAILS + DECOR

Every decoration was DIY courtesy my sisters, moms, grandmothers and aunts! That included centerpieces, seating charts, baskets, pillows for the ring, candles and more. Both Dax and I are cyclists here in Vegas and that is why our theme was tandem bicycling!

FAVORITE MEMORY

What stood out the most at our wedding was the amount of love and support we got from our family and friends. In fact, most of our vendors were family and friends. My photographer was my brother-in-law who had to shoot alone as his wife and co-photographer was my matron-of-honor. Our videographer and DJ is a family friend, the photobooth came via a co-worker and our dessert table and cake were made by my sister-in-law and mother-in-law. Even our Pastor is a friend of ours; we were lucky!
