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.

Joni & Erick’s Engagement

Meet Joni & Erick and their two adorable corgis, Stu and Yoshi:
Joni & Erick - Las Vegas Strip Engagement Session

Joni and Erick met through work at an ICU where Joni was interning and he was her supervisor. Joni had a “major crush” on Erick right when they met. But it wasn’t until he invited her over to meet his new puppy, Stubbie or ‘Stu’, about a month later that things took off. I guess you could say Stu made the perfect ‘wing-dog’, because after that day they were inseparable. Since then and have become fur-parents to their second corgi Yoshi, both of whom will be a part of their wedding planned for next fall at the beautiful Four Seasons-Las Vegas. I can’t wait to be a part of it. ^_^ Joni & Erick also enlisted one of the west coast’s top wedding coordinators, the talented Rissa Gunderson of Scheme Events, so you know it will be unforgettable in every way!

Kelly and Matt are one of the sweetest, most genuine couples I’ve had the honor of photographing- and I’m so thankful I could be there to capture their special day.

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!

Traci & Case’s Engagement

Traci & Case's Engagement Session

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may recognize Traci from the powerhouse wedding coordination trio, Scheme Events! Not only has she become an amazing friend, but Traci and her team are crazy talented and we’ve had the opportunity to work on many beautiful weddings together. I love this girl and can’t wait for it to be Traci’s turn to take that very special walk down the aisle!

When it came time to plan Traci and Case’s engagement session, we wanted a fun, down-to-earth vibe with a bit of an edge. Traci and Case share a love for great music and are frequent concert goers. Case even pulled off the perfect surprise proposal while they were seeing one of their favorite bands, New Found Glory, playing at Hard Rock on the strip. (Click here to read the whole story with photos on the Scheme blog – it’s awesome!) So, to add just the right amount of grit to their session, we ventured out of town to shoot in an abandoned house and ended with T & C in bright lights.

Savannah & Shane’s Wedding

Legends Ranch Las Vegas Wedding Photography

I’ve been dying to share Savannah and Shane’s beautiful outdoor wedding. It was filled with tons of sweet personal touches. And with the talented ladies at Scheme Events to help execute their vision, the day turned out perfect!

We started the morning getting ready at the Flamingo hotel. Both Savannah and Shane have killer style, and Savannah looked absolutely breathtaking in the delicate lace Enzoani gown she wore. Loved her dress! Also, her sweet fur-baby Bexley made an appearance and was a big part of the day. You may remember his cute little face from their San Francisco engagement session this past summer (Click here for a refresher!) In good fashion, he too was dressed to the nines (with a custom doggie suit in their wedding colors) as you’ll see later in the post!

It was a gorgeous fall day for an outdoor wedding! During their ceremony the warm afternoon sunlight streamed softly through the trees as they shared their vows in the presence of family and friends who traveled from Ohio and California to be a part of their special day.Legends Ranch Las Vegas Wedding CeremonySavannah and Shane have an awesome group of friends who shared in their day.
