Stefani + Josh’s Wedding

Romantic Bohemian Desert Wedding Photography

Stefani and Josh were wed on the grounds of Southern Highlands Golf Club, providing the perfect blend for their celebration: close to city to celebrate it up in style, yet feeling worlds away for a beautiful natural aesthetic with lots of trees and the Nevada mountains as their backdrop. I loved the glam elements Stefani incorporated throughout the day, bringing ‘city chic’ touches to their romantic outdoor ceremony. The day couldn’t have been more perfect thanks to the help of Nichole at Southern Highlands and Stefani & Josh’s amazingly talented wedding coordinators, Angela Dyer and the Simply Weddings team.

Southern Highlands WeddingSouthern Highlands Wedding Loved this moment between Stefani and her stylist bridesmaids (Sarah, Meghan, Courtney, Sarah, Danielle & Kara). Stefani wore the biggest smile all day long. You could definitely feel the happiness and love, and it was totally contagious!Southern Highlands WeddingSouthern Highlands Wedding

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:
