Las Vegas Dry Lake Bed Elopement | Christina + Barrett

Christina + Barrett had their sweet elopement ceremony on one of the windiest days out at the dry lake bed no amount of wind was going to damper their spirits! I’m not gonna lie, I was concerned and nervous as we drove alongside the dry lake bed and we had to pull over on the side of the road because we just couldn’t see anything in front of us due to the major dust storm happening! Eventually we inched our way along and came out of the worst of it. We all made it safely out of the dust storm and headed out to our favorite spot on the dry lake bed. These two love birds were getting married and nothing was going to stop them from celebrating their love!

Christina had Victoria from Flora Pop officiate the ceremony and it was such a sweet and personal ceremony. I loved how they included their daughter in the ceremony and read their personal vows to each other.

Flora Pop is a pop- up wedding company that as it states on the website, they’ve been “redefining what it means to elope since 2014”! Not only do they take care of all the legal paperwork, they also make it truly special by providing the florals and champagne + donuts! It was such a treat to work together.

Due to the strong wind, they decided to enjoy their champagne and donuts afterwards, but they did do a little toast with the sparkling cider Victoria brought along so that their daughter wouldn’t feel left out of the celebration! Umm, how sweet was that? Seriously, just the best!

After their ceremony +toast we stuck around the dry lake bed and captured more photos of Christina and Barrett, as well as some with the 3 of them! These guys were such troopers to endure the wind out there and not let it hinder their love and happiness!!



Las Vegas Dry Lake Bed Wedding | Joanna + Billy

Joanna and Billy were planning a quick and easy elopement on their trip to Las Vegas and surprise everyone back home in Maryland! But, when Joanna just couldn’t keep the secret from their parents and I’m sure you can guess what happened once they told them, right?

If you guessed that both sets of parents hopped on the next plane to Vegas to witness their children tie the knot, then you guessed correctly! They were not going to miss this and it turned out to be such a sweet day and one they will all cherish forever.

Las Vegas Elopement | Jenny + Justin

Jenny and Justin decided they wanted to skip the big wedding and just run off to Vegas together and elope!  They came from Northern California and kept their vows intimate and private, but wanted some fun photos to share with their friends and family back home and contacted me about doing their wedding portraits!

Jenny mentioned she loves the movie Ocean's Eleven (I knew we'd get along just fine after that!!) and wanted to do photos on the strip and if possible, with the Bellagio fountains in the background.  Since they had their wedding dinner at  the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas, I figured that would be the best place to meet up and start our session there.  It was such a treat to meet Jenny and Justin. I loved how they added their own personal style and flair to their day.  Jenny had her hair and makeup done by Beauty Studio Inc and they did a great job keeping Jenny's look natural, like she wanted.  The colorful floral crown and bouquet by A Garden Floral really added a fun element and gave them a fun and whimsical look.  After some photos there, we took a little walk around the block and ended our session with the Bellagio fountain show in the background.  It was the perfect finish for them and I'm so happy we got to get those photos for Jenny!
