Intimate Elopement at Floyd Lamb Park | j. anne photography

 

Cold Creek | Little Vegas Wedding

Lauren and Darrik travelled from Colorado to elope in Las Vegas. They exchanged vows at Floyd Lamb Park with just two friend to witness, but special mementos of those who mattered to them were present everywhere. Lauren’s grandparents raised her and although her grandfather passed away before he could see her married, little reminders of him were carefully included: her “Pa” tattoo, an embroidered handkerchief, a heart from her grandfather’s workshirt sewn into that stunning gown.

In her heartfelt way, Reverend Angie Kelly worked with the couple to provide a romantic, personal ceremony perfect for the intimacy of the occasion. I’d love to include the entire ceremony but I’ll share just a sampling of a part that struck me: You’ve been pooling your emotional resources and know that life’s trials are less threatening because of the strength and compatibility you offered one another. Here you are, at THIS pinnacle point where you’re expressing and recording your unity to each other in a way that thousands of great couples have done throughout history.

Afterwards, the group headed north for a bridal photo session in Cold Creek. It’s a small community near Las Vegas well-known for its wild horses and scenic desert landscape. Isn’t it magical?

Hip Engagement Session in Downtown Las Vegas | Kel Ward Photography

Retro Downtown Vegas Engagement | Little Vegas Wedding

When you’re a fashion blogger who decides to have an engagement photo session, you know it’s time to turn it up a notch for your shoot. Where better than downtown Vegas where the kitschy crosses with the gritty and the vintage mixes with quirky fashion? (If you’ve been there, you totally get this.)

Hailey and Adam dressed up for the occasion and treated Fremont like their runway, rocking it retro style in this engagement session caught exclusively on film. How appropriate.

Elegant Purple Wedding at Floyd Lamb Park | Jessi Marri Photography

Floyd Lamb Park | Little Vegas Wedding

A little rain didn’t get in the way of Chandra and Henry’s wedding day. Going for simple elegance worked out perfectly for this pair who chose Floyd Lamb State Park as their wedding venue. This park steps away from the usual desert scene and is an oasis of greenery surrounded by mountains. Those trees are totally incredible.

Cute Elopement at Cactus Joe’s | Taylored Photo Memories

Cactus Joe's | Little Vegas Wedding

For East Coast couple Zay and Dean, a Vegas elopement was just the thing. Hosting a small guest list inside of the quaint chapel at Cactus Joe’s Nursery was everything they dreamed of. It captured their relaxed earthy vibe in amazing surroundings and even had enough room to host a Champagne toast after.

To say the chapel at Cactus Joe’s is unique is an understatement. Located on the edge of town where streets and desert mesh, this working garden center has an amazing array of desert plants and animals … and the cutest damn chapel I’ve seen in Vegas so far. It’s one-of-a-kind in a town full of incredible venues.

McKenzi, Zay and Dean’s wedding photographer fills us in on the mood there:

Distressed wooden accents and decorative metal surrounded the wedding chapel where vows were exchanged and fewer than 20 guests witnessed this intimate event at sunset. Zay’s choices of subtle gold accents with white made a statement, from her bridal headpiece and fingernail polish all the way to the couple’s wedding favors: dreamcatchers, made by the bride.

Moroccan Wedding Inspiration | Erin Usawicz Photography

Moroccan Desert Wedding Inspiration | Little Vegas Wedding

Every spring in Las Vegas, one of the largest gatherings in the world of wedding photographers and industry experts happens at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International expo. As a wedding blogger, it’s one of my favourite times of year because I see the results of some amazingly imaginative photo shoots. Many of them are hosted for out-of-town photographers by local vendors, so it’s a beautiful way to see people work together and have the city hosts show another side of Las Vegas to visitors. It’s almost time for the 2017 conference and I can’t wait see what kind of amazing inspiration rolls in this year!

For now, here’s a shoot from last year that evokes the elegance of a desert wedding with a Moroccan flair … complete with camel. Lanterns and drapery sway in the breeze while decadent treats beckon the bride and groom. The details were put together by Cactus and Lace Weddings in the amazing Valley of Fire. From the lush local florals to the henna-inspired cake, I hope you can find a little eye candy in this inspiration shoot.
