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! 

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

Las Vegas Destination Elopement | Michelle + Bernard

Michelle and Barnard chose to exchange their vows in the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge in front of the New York New York Hotel and Casino on the strip.  For them, Las Vegas was more of a strategic destination than anything else.  Being busy successful restaurant owners in Pittsburgh, these two were ready for some R&R and chose to honeymoon at one of the most beautiful locations on the planet, Fiji!!! A flight from the east coast to the far Pacific is quite the trek, so they decided it was best to get married on their way to the honeymoon and Vegas fit the bill of being on the west coast and a fun spot to tie the knot.  I just love how these two think! Like seriously, we could be travel soul mates! 

After their I Do's we walked around NY NY and then made our way to the Neon Museum to end their session! Have I told you how much I love the Neon Museum for wedding photos?!? It's such a unique spot for destination weddings and really has that vintage Vegas vibe that so many people love.  

We had so much fun chatting and walking around with Michelle and Bernard. We got to witness their love and document one of the best days of their lives, followed closely I'm sure to landing in Fiji ;) Yes, I may have wanted to sneak in their suitcase and tag along! 

M+B: We wish you nothing but success, love, and adventures in your marriage!  Congratulations!!
