Mackenzie and John were guests at a wedding we photographed in San Francisco in 2015! So, when it was their turn to wed, they didn't hesitate to contact us. They said they liked being able to see us in "action" and liked our relaxed and friendly personalities throughout the wedding day and of course, they'd seen their friends' wedding photos and loved them! I'm so happy we were able to meet and capture their Springs Preserve wedding day!
The weather in the days leading up to Mackenzie + John's wedding had me a little nervous. Super windy, cold by Vegas standards, and we even had rain! But as it turns out, Mackenzie + John had perfect weather to tie the knot! I couldn't be happier and I know Mackenzie and John were relieved too!
Mackenzie and her bridesmaids got their makeup done at Makeup in the 702's downtown Las Vegas studio and her hair was also done prior to her coming to Springs Preserve. So, when we met up with them at the venue, she were all dolled up and ready to change into her beautiful wedding gown. Jason spent some time with John while he got ready and then we were ready for their first look!
Ya'll know I love a good first look and this one did not disappoint! That moment when a bride and groom see each other for the first time on their wedding day is so special. It deserves to be done in an intimate setting where they can take it all in and just enjoy it fully! After their first look we did a few more portraits with the bridal party and then gave them some time to relax and freshen up before the ceremony. During this time, Jason and photographed all the pretty details and floral arrangements throughout the ceremony space, cocktail hour at the frame house, and the Garden Arbor reception room.
Following their beautiful and gorgeously personalized ceremony by Angie from Peachy Keen Unions, we had some time to get a few more portraits of the new Mr. & Mrs. before entering their reception. Their reception was a blast! They had about 65 guests who were all close friends and family, so there was definitely a cozy family vibe throughout the night. It could not have been a more perfect day for a more perfect and deserving couple!
Mackenzie + John: Thank you so much for having us be a part of your day! We just love you guys and wish you nothing but happiness, adventures, and mornings with coffee in bed for all the years to come! XO
