Traci & Case’s Wedding!

I’m excited to share that two of my good friends, Traci and Case, are officially shackled together for life!

Traci & Case's Wedding: The Newlyweds!

Case is an amazingly talented sports writer, and Traci is a wedding coordinator and co-owner of the fabulous Scheme Events. I love Scheme for their design-oriented approach to wedding planning, and couldn’t wait to see what they had in store for the big day of one of their own! They did not disappoint! They assembled a veritable dream team of some of Vegas’s best wedding professionals to help bring Traci’s vision to life. It all came together in the perfect mix of elegant, chic and fun. I absolutely adored all the glitter elements, sparkling amongst the rich navy, gold and pink color palette. And just wait until you see Traci’s hot pink bejeweled Kate Spade shoes!

Let’s start with some details! Out of town guests were sure to feel loved and welcome as they were treated to these adorable, custom-designed welcome bags from the Welcome Bag Shoppe. These were filled with some of Traci & Case’s favorite things: chocolate caramels from Peridot Sweets, buttercream sugar cookies from Retro Bakery, WSOP playing cards (World Series of Poker is what initially brought Case to Vegas!) and some Rondel Champagne to celebrate the uniting of the two lovebirds!

Melissa & Sean’s Wedding

When Melissa and Sean first described their wedding as “more of a big fun party than a wedding” with all their closest friends and family I knew it was going to be a memorable day – and it was! Melissa and Sean’s wedding was a true reflection of how they are as people: laid-back and crazy fun. Then to put the icing on the cake (wedding cake!), who better to help pull off such an incredible day than the uber-talented ladies – Traci, Rissa and team – at Scheme Events!

I’m thrilled to share a few photos from Melissa and Sean’s romantic garden affair at The Springs Preserve! To kick things off – here’s a peek at Melissa’s gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown and succulent bouquet:

Melissa and Sean said their ‘I Do’s’ surrounded by sunshine and greenery in The Springs Preserve’s lush Garden’s Arboteum. This one makes me smile. :-) Newlywed bliss! Some of the pretty flower girls:Loved these darling succulent-filled metal flower-girl baskets designed by Catherine at Layers of Lovely.Melissa and Sean love to travel together. In the past two years they’ve ventured to Hawaii (Kauai), Vail, Mammoth, Santa Barbara, D.C. and Tucson– with lots more trips on the horizon! To add a personal touch their centerpieces, they incorporated pictures and stories of the different places that hold meaning to them as part of their table markers:

Alicia & Matt’s Wedding

On July 7 (7/7) high-school sweethearts Alicia and Matt celebrated 7 years of marital bliss and finally got the big wedding they’d always dreamed of! Their celebration took place at the beautiful Anthem Country Club with the ceremony overlooking the water surrounded by all their closest family and friends.

To kick things off, here’s a photo of the girls in the morning! Alicia & Matt had the coolest crew – the whole day was non-stop smiles and laughter.

I loved Matt’s reaction to seeing his stunning bride for first time:

Denise & Mike’s Wedding

After seven years together Denise and Mike made their love for each other official with an elegant, modern wedding at the beautiful Four Seasons Las Vegas. To start the day, Denise and Mike had a romantic ‘first look’ planned for just the two of them prior to the ceremony. It was the perfect setting beneath the shade of the palm trees, allowing them to enjoy the subtle breeze. Denise looked absolutely breathtaking – but it was the look on Mike’s face when he got to see and hold her for the first time that said it all:

Denise has impeccable taste. Her wedding dress was an Aire Barcelona which featured fanciful feather details on the skirt. It was the perfect compliment to her playful personality!The ceremony took place outdoors against the beautiful backdrop of the Fountain Terrace, where they were officially announced husband and wife!
Denise and Mike also had an awesome group of friends! Their wedding reception ended up being quite the party! It was a blast being a part of it and capturing the celebration. :-) Here’s Denise and her girls:

Mike looked sharp with his crew sporting their classic white vans:

Congrats you two!! Have lots of babies! ;-)

Can’t get enough of these two? Click here to check out photos from their engagement session with the perfect mix of cute and sexy!

Danielle + Brian’s Wedding

Danielle and Brian were married on the beautiful grounds of Legends Ranch in Las Vegas. It was an outdoor celebration that perfectly reflected their rustic-country flair.

To kick things off, here’s an image Danielle getting ready with her puppy, Scrappy.

Danielle and Brian decided to do a romantic “First Look”. I always get a little emotional as I witness (and capture from a distance) my couples seeing each other all dolled up for the first time. It’s such a special, intimate moment that adds so much to the wedding day. It’s a quiet time, set apart just for them…

However, the ‘kids’ were invited too – I think Scrappy thought his mom looked pretty amazing!

The ceremony was set under a canopy of trees where an amazing variety of vintage couches, benches and chairs awaited their guests.The bridesmaids each wore a unique vintage dress in an assortment of cream tones, with Danielle’s sisters (and maids-of-honor) in a pretty floral print. Here’s Danielle with her stylish BFFs – Megan, Krysta, Veronica, Momo, Jill and Jamie!The guys were looking uber-sharp as well with Brian and his groomsmen rocking matching suspenders and vans shoes. Brian’s dog, Rhea approved.Layers of Lovely did a fantastic job on all the bouquets and floral arrangements. I’m a huge fan of Catherine and her team’s work!
Danielle and her sister Jill (who you may recognize from my post on her wedding here), started a vintage rental shop in Las Vegas called The Wooden Trunk. Many of the of pieces were used in her wedding – infusing a delightful plethora of unique ideas and details for Danielle & Brian’s guests to enjoy. One of my favorites was the vintage wood lemonade stand surrounded by picture frames that hung in the tree with photos from their engagement session. Not only was it adorable – but the sweet tea was rather addictive!

During the reception there was a S’mores station and a big fire pit! After a bit of prodding, everyone joined in to roast marshmallows:

The first dance was set beneath a magical canopy of lights. 

Huge congrats to the newlyweds! Love ya guys and am so happy I could be there to capture your big day. :-)

Tracy & Alex’s Wedding

Tracy and Alex first met in 2001, but it wasn’t until many years later that they discovered their rightful place in each others arms. One day while Alex was searching through his archived emails he came across an old message from Tracy. Out of the blue he decided to write to see if she still used that email and possibly catch up a bit. As fate had it she just happened to check her old, abandoned account the following day and was also currently back in town visiting for the month. The pair quickly became inseparable. Now, 4 years, a house and 2 dogs later, Tracy and Alex have officially sealed the deal! I couldn’t be happier for them and would love to share a few photos from their beautiful wedding day. With Dennis Silknitter of Four Seasons and Brit Bertino and her talented team at Simply Weddings working hard behind the scenes everything went off without a hitch!

After their ceremony, the Fountain Terrace at Four Seasons was transformed for Tracy and Alex’s outdoor reception. To match their modern style, they had a fabulous hot pink color palette with black and white damask.

How cute is it that the cake topper matched Tracy’s sassy pink shoes!

Tracy + Alex: Congrats!!! I’m so happy for you both and loved being a part of your wedding. :-) Hope you enjoy these teaser photos!
