Cili at Bali Hai Las Vegas Wedding | Sam + Tony


Sam and Tony had their destination wedding at Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club in Las Vegas.  One thing I can say about Sam and Tony is that they are truly loved by so many people! They were surrounded by about 140 friends and family who traveled from Southern California to share in their beautiful day! And after having spent some time with them ourselves, we can totally see why! They are so easy going and relaxed and really, just good people.  We were honored to photograph their wedding day!  

Sam and Tony opted for a first look and if you know us, you know we love a good first look! Afterwards, we met up with their bridal party and got some fun group shots before the ceremony.  

After their short and sweet ceremony, we went around the property with Sam + Tony for some gorgeous portraits of the new Mr. & Mrs. before they partied the night away at their super fun reception! 

S+T: I hope your honeymoon was amazing!! It sure did look like a dream on Instagram ;)

Las Vegas Cili Wedding|Tamiko + Mark


Tamiko and Mark are two beautifully genuine individuals with strong family values and an immense amount of love for each other.  It was truly such a privilege to photograph their wedding day!  As a testament to how amazing they are,  over 100 friends and family made the cross-country trip to celebrate with them as they tied the knot in Las Vegas! 

Tamiko and Mark chose to have a first look!  Seeing each other before walking down the aisle is so special! They were able to share a quiet intimate moment together before their ceremony and of course Tamiko was able to check out Mark's booty in his tux! 

After the first look, we grabbed some group photos with their bridal party and then let them spend some time relaxing before the ceremony started.  We then took detail shots of the reception and ceremony spaces.  After the ceremony, it was time for photos of the new Mr. & Mrs. together, while the guests and family enjoyed cocktail hour.

After dinner, the bride and groom had their first dance, followed by the traditional father-daughter and mother-son dances.  Later the guests and family were then treated to some heart-felt toasts and a very special taiko drum performance by some members of Tamiko's group, Soh Daiko, from New York City before the dancing took over! 

T + M: Thank you again for having us share in your amazing wedding day! It was such a blast and we wish nothing but happiness, love, and adventures in your marriage!
