Although I am very happy with how my wedding turned out (missing pants and hairstylists and all) sometimes I just see something that makes me go “I want a do-over!” Today’s shoot from Ella Gagiano made me do just that. This couple eloped in Vegas all the way from New Zealand. I’m so happy they got such stunning photos to show off after the event.
The colors of the Neon Museum, the emotion, her dress, the simple sexiness of everything. Love it.
There are some more gorgeous photos on Ella’s blog.

Elvis and Las Vegas kind of go together like…peanut butter and banana. While going all out with an Elvis theme might be saved for the most hardcore fan, these little touches might be a cute head nod to the history of Vegas for your destination wedding.

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.

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.
