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!

Modern Las Vegas Wedding Photography at The M Resort Pool Lets start things off with their first look, filled with laughs and happy tears. It makes me smile. :-)

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).

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 Vegas strip rests the Lee Canyon Ski & 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.

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!
