Ten years + 2 little ones later, Ann-Marie + Milo came back to where it all began to renew their vows to each other and their family! Anne-Marie and Milo own the successful International Wedding Institute in Paris, France, which specializes in vocational training in wedding planning, wedding design, wedding officiating, as well as workshops and optional master classes. We had met years ago when they were here in Vegas, learning about the destination wedding industry here and had kept in touch throughout the years. I was so excited when she contacted us about their trip and plans for their vow renewal.

Ann-Marie had an ambitious plan to capture her family in her favorite Las Vegas locations and ending their day in the same location they got married at 10 years ago. We discussed her ideas, the logistics, came up with a plan that would work well for everyone, and then we totally rocked it!

Our first stop was the Neon Museum! This is one of our favorite locations for an iconic Vegas vibe! It took some time for their baby boy to feel comfortable with us, but by our second stop, he was all smiles! Our second stop was the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, for another iconic Las Vegas destination! At this point, we took a break! It was time for everyone to freshen up and change to their vow renewal ceremony outfits and it also gave the kiddos some down time to relax!

We met up with Norma from Peachy Keen Unions for their desert vow renewal and it was super sweet and intimate. Having their kiddos be present to witness their recommitment to each other was so special and truly a gift. We’re so happy we got to be there to document the moment and capture some fun memories for them to cherish for many, many more years to come!

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 ;)



Las Vegas Destination Wedding | Marissa + Eric

I am so excited to share Marissa and Eric’s gorgeous classic wedding today! We met Marissa and Eric on one of their trips to Vegas about 6 months before their wedding and we just loved them instantly! We knew we’d get along great and couldn’t wait for their wedding day to come. They chose Vegas because it’s one of their favorite destinations (YAY!) and with friends and family spread out throughout the country, it was the perfect place for everyone to meet up and party! We couldn’t agree more ;)

Having a destination wedding did not mean that they would skimp out on having an epic day! They had a huge bridal party of 13 of their closest friends and about 100 guests! You can tell these two are truly loved and after getting to know them, I can totally see why! They’re genuine and kind and just a lot of fun to be around.

I met Marissa in their suite at Mandalay Bay and Jason met up with Eric and the guys at a bar downstairs. So, while Marissa and her bridesmaids got their finishing touches with the amazing Makeup in the 702, Eric and the guys hung out, had some drinks, and waited for Marissa and her girls to come down. Marissa and Eric chose a first look, so we found a quite spot away from the busy hotel for them to have their moment and get to take it all in! It was the sweetest! The bridal party met up with us right after for some fun group shots around hotel grounds before heading to Paris Hotel for some photos of just our gorgeous bride and groom together.

They had their ceremony in the evening at the Valley of the Falls outdoor ceremony space at Mandalay Bay and then we all made our way to the super cool House of Blues Foundation Room VIP Club at the top of the hotel. They didn’t want a formal reception vibe but rather they wanted it to feel like a lounge and a place where everyone could chill on the balcony and enjoy the view of the strip at night. This was achieved by having a few round tables, but also having couches and tables with pillows, plus high bar tables throughout. It was the perfect venue for them and turned out to be an epic evening!
