Luxurious Las Vegas Elopement | Cathleen + Mirko

Being able to document this day for Cathleen and Mirko, was such an honor! These two are truly just the most genuine and down to earth people! Cathleen’s laughter was infectious and I just loved their chemistry!

Cathleen and Mirko traveled from Australia, with their son, for a fun holiday throughout California and a jaunt in Las Vegas to tie the knot, to then finish their epic trip with a visit to the happiest place on earth, Disneyland!

They booked the Wynn Tower Suite Salon at The Wynn Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, which has amazing views and is so spacious! Seriously, luxurious and the best way to enjoy your stay in Vegas for your wedding day!!! It was gorgeous and I’m so glad they started their wedding photography coverage with “getting ready” photos because it gave them beautiful images in their suite! Having a small elopement ceremony, these images really help tell a complete story from their day and elevates the experience! I highly recommend “getting ready” images to all our elopement and intimate wedding couples. Just take a look at some of the pretty details and sweet moments we were able to capture for Cathleen + Mirko!

Uh! Just seeing how Cathleen’s son helped her zip up her dress again gives me all the warm and fuzzy momma feels!!!

Cathleen didn’t want Mirko to see her in her dress until the ceremony, so once he was dressed, he made his way via Uber to Red Rock Canyon, where the ceremony was being held. Cathleen + son rode in style in a Phantom Rolls Royce to Red Rock Canyon!

Their ceremony was so sweet, intimate, and full of laughter! Afterwards, the couple toasted to their new life together as Mr. & Mrs. and had a cute cake cutting! My favorite thing was that they didn’t take themselves too seriously! They joked around and just enjoyed their day to the fullest and that is really what it’s all about! Letting go of any preconceived ideas of what a wedding should be like and just doing things on your own terms. And, if that means photobombs, giggles, and stolen kisses, well then so be it! Congratulations this sweet family! Wishing them all the love, laughter, and adventures! XO

The Neon Museum | Venue Spotlight

Happy Wednesday, love birds! I'm so excited to be sharing a bit about one of our favorite venues today.  The Neon Museum is such a cool place, especially for those who want a real Vegas retro vibe for their wedding day.  They have several spaces to choose from, with the North Gallery being the most popular!  The North Gallery is a private space where you're surrounded by dozens of vintage neon signs.  You can also reserve the Main Gallery, once the museum is closed to the public for additional photos and/or to host your evening reception.

The space can be reserved for your ceremony for 30 minutes and you can also add an additional 30 minutes for photos afterwards or you can just reserve the space for 30minutes to an hour for your pre or post-wedding photos!  

Most of our couples who choose to either have their ceremony at the Neon Museum or their wedding photos, choose it because they want something completely unique! They've already chosen Vegas as their destination wedding or elopement and the Neon Museum really embraces that Vegas Vibe for a lot of people! It's retro, fun, and a little edgy.  

Plus, you can also book the Neon Museum for your anniversary session, bachelorette photos, engagement session, vow renewals, or just to commemorate an epic trip with your love and your best friends! You can't go wrong with this as your backdrop!! 

One of our favorite things about booking a photo session at the Neon Museum is that it is completely private! We have the entire space just for us! We'll let you walk around and check out the signs and pick out some of your favorites.  We'll take you to our favorites too and together we'll make some amazing pictures for you to share with your friends and family back home! Plus, having the space all to ourselves means no crowds or spectators and you'll be able to relax and share some intimate moments with your love! 

So, if you're considering Vegas for your destination wedding or elopement and really want to capture the Vegas retro vibe in your portraits, we highly recommend you check out the Neon Museum and then have us take the photos for you! I promise, we'll'll have a fabulous time and you'll love your photos! XO
