Vintage, Retro Style Playful Elopement {Neon Museum}

I think one of the most amazing things about Las Vegas are elopements. The intimacy, the complete personality that shines through, the amazing photos that are taken because the photographer can totally focus on the couple…I’m in love! Today’s elopement comes courtesy the lovely Chelsea Nicole. I’ve been a fan of her work for sooooo long – way before I had even locked down a Vegas wedding as a possibility, actually, and wayyyyyy before this blog was even a thought in my mind. Today’s photos really showcase why I like her style.

The blue-shoed bride, Heather, wrote a little bit about the celebration she had with her mate, Pete:

Because we wanted our wedding day to be an intimate experience between just the two of us, we snuck off to Vegas (from Minneapolis) to elope. It was a natural choice – six months after we started dating, I tried to get Pete to marry me while we were vacationing there. It may have taken a bit longer, but we finally got hitched on the 6-year anniversary of our first date.

Heather continues:

On our wedding day, we set out to have fun and celebrate each other – with lots of laughs. Since photos would be the only vehicle for sharing our special day with others, we knew our choice of photographer would be critical. We were thrilled when we found Chelsea Nicole because we knew she would capture our style and spirit brilliantly. She even surprised us by taking us bowling! Because Pete and I both work in the advertising/design industry, we wanted the images to look less like standard wedding photos and more like editorial shots you’d find in a magazine.

An Elvis Elopement {Welcome to Las Vegas Sign}

The colors pop SO much in these photos shot by JamieY Photo! It helps when the bride has a blazing red ‘do, of course. (And wasn’t her hairstyle and overall retro look gorgeous?) The couple, Brenna and Nathan, came from Kansas to be married by Jesse Garon…I mean Elvis, at the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign on the Strip. It was a cute elopement with some amazing photos shot in downtown Vegas afterwards. Then…burgers at In & Out. Sounds pretty much picture perfect to me!

There are more rockin’ photos of this couple over at JamieY Photography’s site.

Rockabilly Retro Flare Wedding {Little Church of the West}

I love so many things about today’s wedding. The colors, the glam vintage feel, the emotion… Suzi at Vitamin C Photo did an amazing job and I think delivered exactly what the bride and groom wanted in terms of photography.

The couple, Marnie and John, came all the way from Australia to get wed in Vegas. Marnie’s amazing vintage look was accomplished with a dress she made herself and pin-up inspired hair and makeup perfected by Your Beauty Call.

Doesn’t she look PERFECT? I also love the petticoat.
