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

Las Vegas Desert Elopement

Busra and Tuna traveled all the way from Turkey for an epic trip! Three of their friends made the trip with them and they spent some time visiting and sightseeing in California before stopping in Vegas to tie the knot! Talk about a trip of a lifetime, huh!

Coming from so far away, they left the planning to Las Vegas Desert Elopements and everything turned out beautifully! Judy of Wedding Vows Las Vegas performed a beautiful ceremony and even incorporated some traditional Turkish elements for the couple.

I love how elopements can be so much more than just going to a chapel or court house for a no-frills ceremony, but can actually be a unique and intimate ceremony in a beautiful setting! Just take a look at these photos to see what I mean ;)

Wow, ya’ll, I can’t believe it’s been just over a month since I blogged! January was such a busy month for us and we were nonstop! So, I’ve finally been able to exhale and tackle my ever growing to-do list and blogging was right there on the top of that list! I’ve got some really amazing weddings and shoots to share with you, along with some great ideas for helpful posts too! I can’t wait! I thought I’d start out with one of my favorite intimate weddings of 2018! Enjoy :)

Surrounded by family, friends, and the epic backdrop that is Red Rock Canyon, Whitney and Josh had a sweet and intimate wedding ceremony. It was just what they wanted and Desert Elopements Las Vegas was there to help them coordinate it and secure the perfect outdoor location! Whitney had the awesome team at Amelia C. and Co. do her hair and makeup and she topped off her boho look with an amazing bouquet from Layers of Lovely! Just check out their photos andI’m sure you’ll agree that they had a dream team of vendors and their location couldn’t be any more dreamy!
