I’m really feeling Mount Charleston as a Vegas wedding venue these days (just check out these other recent weddings there) and for good reason: it’s natural, relaxed and just so cosy. For couples who are seeking an outdoorsy wedding venue near Vegas, Mount Charleston is a perfect spot to pick, just 30 minutes away from the city.
Amy and Jeff are a couple who love to be in wilderness and woodsy, so for these locals, the Resort at Mount Charleston was the natural choice for their wedding. Joined by their loved ones, including their dog Lucky, the celebration was DIYers dream with a rustic feel to the decor and decorations. Balancing out the feminine touches are airplane details as table number markers and the guestbook propeller blade. Perfect, as the groom is a pilot!
More from the photographer:
The outdoors are very important to this vibrant couple, so it was no surprise that they chose a Mt. Charleston Resort wedding. They exchanged their vows under the fresh mountain air surrounded by friends and family. Amy’s grandfather officiated the wedding, making this day even more memorable.
Jeff says he moved to Vegas and hit the jackpot, maybe not in dollars but definitely in love, when he met Amy. He knew he’d met the girl of his dreams as he sat across from her on that first date. This first grade teacher had a smile that made his heart melt. With each twirl of her hair he fell more and more in love. Amy knew she’d finally met someone she could take home. Here was a man that not only could fly himself anywhere he wanted, but was a hunting and fishing kind a guy. Someone that would fit in with her family. She was only too happy to show him around Las Vegas, since he was new to to the area.
The Mt. Charleston Resort chalet has a western feel to it, which fit these two being from Michigan and Wisconsin. There was a bit of DIY presence in the decorations. The bouquet was put together by Amy herself. The bride and groom were showered with flying paper airplanes as they left the marriage ceremony. Such a perfect mountain wedding!
