Amy & Jeremy’s Wedding

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!

Mt Charleston Winter Wedding Style

Mt Charleston Snowy Winter Wedding Photography

There’s always been an indescribable magic and romance about the winter time. When those final warm rays of summer give way to an icy chill and rosy cheeks, it almost makes you want to drop everything in that instant to cozy up with warm layers, hot cocoa (with extra mini marshmallows, of course!) and your favorite person. ^_^

So in honor of the chilly weather outside, I’m excited to share this styled wedding collaboration I did with the fabulous event design and coordination team, Scheme Events, and a talented team of Las Vegas’ best! Together we put together a modern woodland wedding that showcased a different side of Las Vegas. Just an hour outside of the strip rests the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort resort, set atop Mount Charleston. In the winter this lush forest is transformed into a dreamy snowy backdrop that’s the perfect setting for a winter wedding.

Mt Charleston Snowy Winter Wedding PhotographyThe Ski and Snowboard Resort has these lovely yellow ski lifts that Scheme Events used for seating in the reception area, draping them with flowers by Layers of Lovely. Some other unique design details were adorable moose place cards, flower-filled faceted terrariums, a rustic yarn diagram seating chart and a classic naked cake from Peridot Sweets.

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!

Liz + Jean’s Wedding

It’s hard to know where to start with Liz and Jean. These two have become amazing friends to both Jayse and I through several fun photo-shoots and mini-adventures together over the past few years. You may remember them from their L.A. County Fair & Griffith Park engagement session that was featured on SMP earlier this year.

As you can probably tell from the photos, Liz and Jean are one of those couples you always feel happy just being around. I think part of it is that it’s easy to tell just how much they love each other, and how much they appreciate having good friends around.

And that’s how this wedding felt – a bunch of good friends and family gathering in sunny California for a stunning destination wedding on the romantic grounds of Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. The talented coordination trio, Scheme Events, was there to make sure every detail was in place and the entire day went flawless!

The morning started at The W Hotel in Hollywood, getting ready surrounded by close friends and loved ones.

I adored all the detail and love put into Liz and Jean’s wedding. The gorgeous floral was artfully created by the amazing team at Layers of Lovely, and custom letterpress invites were designed and made by Paper & Home.

Liz & Jean Wedding - Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, CA

For their first look, I brought Jean to a quiet private place between a long pathway of towering cypress trees. I think five years of loving Liz, and waiting for this day must have flooded Jean when he turned around to see his bride for the first time that day. His expression said it all.
