las vegas desert save the date shoot

This couple had Gaby Jeter Photo capture some beautiful engagement shots at one of the dry lake beds around Vegas. Can you tell the bride-t0-be is a dancer at an on Strip show? (Maybe those legs and the ballet slippers give it away.)

And here’s the kicker…he’s a knight in the same show. They met on the job! Awwwww!

Two Times the Elvis at this Elopement {Viva Las Vegas Chapel}

This totally adorable elopement comes to us today from Carmen Salazar, a photographer from Sacramento.

This December event features not just one but two Elvises (Elvii??), tequila shots, amazing photos taken on the colorful backdrops in downtown Las Vegas’ Arts District and some gorgeous isolated desert photos. What a beautiful range of images, and what a fun looking couple. I cannot get over the bride’s amazing boots.

The event was completely spontaneous, and was live broadcast on the internet so their moms could watch. The bride writes: “We had never planned on eloping but there just never seemed to be a perfect time to have a wedding, so we thought about it and decided to just do it ourselves in Vegas…

I love the mini-shoot they did in the Arts District. It’s an amazing part of downtown Las Vegas, and is a place you should totally check out. It’s a favorite spot for photographers to go to for spunky engagement shots.

Stephanie’s boots were borrowed from her sister, and they are “Old Gringos.” Her dress and shawl were borrowed from the photographer.

Some more rad photos of this Elvis infused wedding over on Carmen Salazar’s site!

Blazing Blue Wedding {Red Rock Canyon}

Today’s wedding was shot by the fab-u-lous “adventure” photographer McKenzi Taylor of Taylored Photo Memories. She was fortunate enough to be amongst the few witnesses to this very private yet very grand wedding at Red Rock Canyon.

The couple, from Salt Lake City, are big climbers, so it is apt that they got married at one of the premiere climbing locations in Nevada. The bride wore a gorgeous blue gown that matched the skies that day, and did her own hair and arranged her own bouquet. Simply gorgeous.

For more photos, climb on over to McKenzi Taylor’s blog.

Short and Cute at Imperial Palace {The Quad}

I had a huge smile on my face the first time I saw this wedding on Meg’s blog – from the flouncy little Priscilla of Boston dress the bride wore to the purple tones of the overhauled Imperial Palace chapel (uh, who knew!?) and the hilarious surprise from up above while the party boarded the bus for a cruise of the Strip… check Stephanie and Dan’s wedding out!

I am so in love with the dress she chose!

As the bus boarded, everyone on top suddenly started pointing up above and a new “friend” was made…

Did you spot her!? Awesome.

So gorgeous – thanks for sharing, Meg. As always, it was a treat. For more photos of this wedding, please visit MegRuth’s blog.
