Las Vegas Neon Museum Elopement | Jessica + Wes

Some couples want a traditional big wedding surrounded by all their friends and family.  They want to show off their love and personalities from the invitations to the florals! They want to party and celebrate and stick to traditions.

Some couples want an intimate ceremony, without all the hoopla.  They want it to be about their personal commitment to each other.  They want to savor the moment all to themselves and throw traditions out the window.  

Whether you are traditional, untraditional, or fall somewhere in between, know that your wedding day will be perfect for you and who you are and what your love stands for.  Your wedding day should be exactly how you want it to be, regardless of the size of your guest list. The one thing you can't do without, though, is amazing photographs!  Your wedding photos will be your heirlooms.  They will be what is left when the day is done.  Your photographs will stand the test of time and will be a reminder of how in love you were then and always will be.

Jessica + Wes chose to skip the traditions and decided that coming to Vegas with just her mom + brother were all they needed.  Jessica's brother officiated the ceremony privately and then knowing that they wanted some awesome photos to remember their day, they booked a photo shoot at The Neon Museum where they met up with us!  We had such a fun time with them and it was so beautiful to see how in love they are!  After our time at The Neon Museum, we took a quick drive over to Downtown's Fremont St. to get some more fun wedding photos around town with them! So, although they kept their celebration private, they now have some beautiful photos to share with all their loved ones back home. And, more importantly, they'll have these images to look back on at every anniversary to remind them of their amazing day and fall in love a little bit more each time! 

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 Destination Wedding | Amanda + John

We absolutely loved being a part of Amanda and John's wedding day! Not only are they genuinely kind and big-hearted people, their family and friends are too! They chose to come from New Jersey to have a destination wedding in Las Vegas because they wanted their wedding to be remembered as a fun and joyous occasion shared with their best friends and family. 

One thing I loved about Amanda and John's wedding was that she paid attention to the details.  Just because you are having a destination wedding, doesn't mean you can't add your personal touches and make it special.  Amanda made sure their wedding day was exactly how they wanted it and added personal touches to her reception decor!  Destination weddings can still have all the elements of a traditional wedding, plus they give your friends and family a great getaway weekend! It's a win-win for everyone :) 

After the getting-ready, Amanda and John chose to do a first look before their ceremony.  Amanda also had a first look with her dad, which was super special and sweet too!  After some portraits around Caesars Palace, where they were staying, they had their ceremony - which unfortunately we were unable to photograph.  But, we met up with them afterwards for their reception at one of our favorite destination wedding venues, Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak, and Stone Crab.  The restaurant is conveniently located inside the Forum Shops at Caesars, so it was a perfect choice for them!
