Everyone who knows Joni and Erick can attest to how fun they are to be around and how absolutely perfect they are for each other. Erick always has Joni laughing, and Joni has a gorgeous smile that can light a whole room. I’ve loved getting to know these two over the last year and a half and am thrilled to share some images from their beautiful wedding day at the Four Seasons in Las Vegas!

Joni and Erick’s wedding was the perfect balance of classic and fun, with everything brought together beautifully by talented event designer & coordinator by Rissa at Scheme Events. I especially loved the many unique & personalized elements that were 100% them. From including their adorable dogs as part of the day as little groomsmen in their customized bandana tuxedos to fun and quirky Mario themed elements, including an awesome custom cake with Erick as Mario and Joni as the Princess (and yes, the corgis too!)

Red Rock Canyon Las Vegas Wedding Photography by Chelsea NicoleRaya and Tom are from one of my favorite cities (Tel Aviv!) where they met while in university together. Over the years, what started as flirty glances in a university gym has grown into ‘best friends lucky to be in love’ with one another.

For their wedding Raya and Tom traveled to Las Vegas for an intimate and special celebration with just the two of them. They wanted a day filled with light, joy, sunshine and good vibes – and it was just that! :-) The ceremony was held at Spring Mountain Ranch where they said their vows beneath a romantic chuppah and backdrop of the desert mountains. Then we were off Red Rock Canyon to explore and celebrate with cake and champagne!

R+T : Mazel Tov! I’m so happy I could be a part of your day & witness how amazing you two are together! Many many congrats! <3

After an amazing time exploring the desert with Sybil & Eddie for the engagement session earlier this year (See their sand dunes e-session HERE!) I was counting down the months, weeks and days until these two shared those two very special words & victory walk down the aisle as newly married husband & wife! Their happiness is absolutely contagious and I couldn’t wait to be a part of their big celebration. And now that it’s official, I’m excited to share a peek at their fresh, modern, love-filled wedding day held at the M Resort here in Las Vegas!

Tine and Pieter are a driven, fun, adventurous couple – and there couldn’t have been a more perfect way to kick things off as husband & wife than an epic road-trip-wedding-adventure! They started their journey in Phoenix heading up to the Grand Canyon, then to Las Vegas where they had their said their ‘I Do’s, and ended with stops in Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco for a post-wedding honeymoon. Yep, they definitely did it right! And I’m so happy to share a handful of photos from the very special little stop they made to the Nevada desert:

Cynthia and Sam love being outdoors and Legends Ranch (a little gem just 10mins from the Las Vegas strip) ended up being the perfect place for their western country-style wedding. Here’s a handful of images showcasing the love that went into their day and some of the special moments: from Cynthia’s mom putting on her cowgirl boots, to Cynthia and Sam’s first moment as husband and wife and a very emotional father-daughter dance. First off, some of the lovely details from the morning – loved Cynthia’s dress!

After a sweet ceremony set against the red barn, the evening continued with dinner, drinks and dancing. Cynthia’s vision for the reception was beautifully designed and executed by Traci & team at Scheme Events, and I love how it all came together: romantic canopy of lights (LED Unplugged), pretty flowers in wood buckets (Enchanted Florist), awesome ‘wooden’ cake (Gimme Some Sugar) and beautifully mismatched vintage dishes and glassware (Dirty Dishes).

Amy and Jeremy became close friends after meeting in law-school, but it wasn’t until Jeremy got really hungry one 4th of July weekend that sparks [literally] flew. He was in Tahoe, and she was in Vegas, baking her famous annual cupcakes. He asked for one, so on a whim (breaking all her lawyer-logical ways) she hopped on a flight, and called him saying ‘You can come pick up your cupcakes at the airport.’ She says, “I waited outside in passenger pickup and suddenly there was Jeremy who threw his arms around me, kissed me, and the rest is pretty much history!”

Now, after five years together, I’m so happy to share some images from their beautiful lakeside wedding. Held at the mediterranean inspired Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort, their day was the perfect mix of classic romance, and timeless fun!
