Caesars Palace Las Vegas Wedding | Chloe + Derek

caesars_palace_wedding_las_vegas-01-3.jpg

We met Chloe + Derek last summer when Chloe contacted us for engagement photos at the Valley of Fire. You can check out their cute Cars movie themed engagement session HERE. At the time, they still didn’t have a wedding date or venue picked out, but when they did, Chloe contacted me again and asked us to photograph their big day. We were so excited to get to hang out with them again and be there to document their wedding day this time!

They chose to have an intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family at the Juno Gardens in Caesars Palace. For those of you considering a wedding ceremony at Caesars, keep in mind that you can opt out of their in-house photographer for an additional fee and have your own photographers capture your wedding ceremony! This is a great option because not only do all your photos have the same style and look throughout your entire day, you also get to have your own photographers whom you already know and have a personal relationship with! There’s also no pushy sales pitch from us afterwards to get you to purchase additional prints or digital images. We always include your fully edited high resolution images for you!

Ok, enough of our PSA and let’s get back to Chloe + Derek’s wedding day!!

We met up with the couple in their hotel rooms for some getting ready shots and to get to know the rest of the wedding party! Chloe and the girls were getting hair and makeup done by Beauty Studio Inc. in their gorgeous suite at the Nobu Hotel inside Caesars Palace. Once everyone was ready, Chloe + Derek had their first look before the ceremony. After the ceremony and family group shots, we headed out for some photos of the wedding party and bride and groom! It was a great ending to a great day!

Springs Preserve Las Vegas Wedding | Jessika + Levi

Spring weddings in Las Vegas gives couples great weather and pretty desert blooms and there's no place more perfect for this than Springs Preserve! It's a desert botanical garden in the middle of the city and it feels like you are miles away! The landscaping is gorgeous and the ceremony and reception spaces are designed to flow harmoniously with their natural surroundings.  It's one of our favorite venues here in Las Vegas and after you check out Jessika and Levi's wedding, you'll see why too!

Jessika and Levi came in from Texas to tie the knot in Vegas.  With some of Jessika's family here in town and other friends and family on the west coast, Vegas just seemed like the ideal location for the relaxed and down to earth wedding they envisioned.  Plus, Vegas offered their guests all kinds of entertainment options for them to make the most of their trip! 

Jessika and her bridesmaids got all dolled up at Square Salon and then I met up with them at Springs Preserve.  Jessika looked absolutely stunning in her Willow by Watters gown dress and her boho braid! Jason met up with Levi and his groomsmen, who weren't too far behind.  They opted for a first look and oh my goodness, was it just the most beautiful and heartwarming first look ever! Ok, I know I say this a lot, but man, do I love a good first look and they are all good!!

Afterwards, the couple had a few minutes to relax and freshen up before their ceremony, which was officiated by Jessika's brother! This made for a really intimate and personalized ceremony and I don't think there was a dry eye in the audience! Following the ceremony, it was time for cocktails and mingling for the guests, while we snuck off and took a little photo tour around the Springs Preserve before making our way to the reception. 

Remember when I said they wanted a laid back reception? Well, with the help of Faith at Faithfully Yours Wedding & Event Planning, their vision came to life, complete with corn hole, shuffleboard, and foosball!  The DJ also kept the music playing and the people dancing. This was definitely a fun party and Jessika and Levi had the best time on their wedding day!

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
