This might be the first time I’ve ever gone gaga over a hat, but I love the bride’s look in today’s post. Rebecca and Christopher were married in Las Vegas this past Halloween, traveling from Minnesota to tie the knot. For their wedding they went a route that did not allow outside photography, but chose to do a pre-wedding portrait session with JamieY Photography. The results are stunning — Jamie chose a fantastic locale for this couple’s photos going with Rebecca’s wish for something urban and featuring graffiti: the downtown Arts District. It suited their 1960s vintage Vegas look perfectly!
Vendor and Venue Details:
Photographer: JamieY Photography / Photo Shoot Venue: Arts District, downtown Las Vegas / Hair + Makeup: Shane at Making Up Las Vegas / Bride’s Shoes: Eclectic Company by ModCloth / Groom’s Suit + Menswear: Custom tie, Michael Kors shirt / Floral: Layers of Lovely / Blue Pillbox Hat + Jewelry: Vintage from Etsy / Purse: Vintage
Chris’s tie was custom made with 1960s style fabric, which was also used in Rebecca’s bouquet.
More from their photographer, Jamie: I could gush about these two all day. We had a great shoot. We had lots of luck and so many people were super friendly. Usually photographers are not a business owners favorite person to see, but on this day everything was going our way. An artist let us into his office and use his items as props, perfect vintage pieces to go with Becky’s vintage look. We also got to sneak into my favorite huge warehouse that I have never seen open. Everything was just perfect. Becky & Chris are so photogenic and so in love. The way Chris looks at Becky says it all.
The first thing I noticed from today’s wedding? The bride Ashley’s absolutely dazzling smile. Every single photo, it looks like she is having the time of her life – and so does everyone else attending. This destination wedding photographed by j. anne photography at Westin Lake Las Vegas transformed the stunning hotel venue into a theatre, if only for one night.
A palette of vibrant marine blue with pops of yellow energized the overall theme which combined theatre inspired and art deco details. The bride, who is a professional dancer, came to Las Vegas with her husband all the way from Australia. I love the “costume change” part way through the reception – Ashley exchanges her full ballroom style tulle skirt for a sexier, more fitted version!

I have yet to visit Eldorado Canyon (aka Nelson Ghost Town) but I love it so much, I try to feature weddings and engagements shot there as much as I can. It’d be so awesome to have one day a week just dedicated to Nelson posts, actually… haha! Maybe some day. I think the thing that appeals to me is that the town never looks the same. Rusted out buses, crashed planes, old barns, fields of desert cacti – it’s so unique, and is super flexible.
Jamie Y Photography shot Laura and Wade’s destination wedding at Eldorado Canyon not too long ago, and the photos turned out so beautifully. Laura and Wade came from Missouri specifically to tie the knot at the scenic abandoned mining town, and they transported the 50 of their guests out to the little ghost town in a bus!
Angie Kelly of Peachy Keen Unions wed the couple, surrounded by the cacti and rustic architecture of the town – yet, a very modern touch as they both read their personal vows straight off an iPhone. The wedding colors – canary yellow, navy blue and turquoise look so great against the desert tones and the busy backgrounds at Nelson, don’t they? After the wedding Jamie took a few more photos of the couple as the guests nibbled on snacks and had beverages. Loving the ruffles of Laura’s gown in her bridal portraits!
