Lyndsay and Dan’s Wedding

Lyndsay and Dan's Las Vegas Destination WeddingDan was prepared for a busy first month of his internship at Grandview Hospital. But he wasn’t prepared to meet such a stunning young woman named Lyndsay on orientation day. Dan knew what he had to do; he had to do things the new-old-fashioned way. So he sent her a cordial Facebook message politely asking her out for drinks. After that, they were smitten and they very quickly became inseparable. And it’s easy to see why. They’re each others biggest cheerleaders, both in sports – Dan plays soccer, Lyndsay plays softball – and more importantly, in life.

Here, Lyndsay and Dan have been counting down the hours and minutes (and seconds) to becoming husband and wife! Yep! There’s an app for that! Love it. :-)

Guin & Eric’s Wedding

Garden Wedding at Springs Preserve Las Vegas Guin and Eric met at a softball game and soon became fast friends. They started just hanging out after the games, until one night things heated up a notch! While out at a house party, Guin’s friends mentioned that Eric was ‘totally into her’. Guin decided to take matters into her own hands, pinning Eric in a corner of the room and planting a kiss on him. It must have been an amazing first kiss. Fast forward 4 years, Guin and Eric are officially husband and wife!

Their wedding day was a laid-back, fun destination affair that took place at the gorgeous Springs Preserve in Las Vegas. And with the talented team at Scheme Events coordinating the day went absolutely perfect!

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:

Uri & Loren’s Wedding

bubblesHappy 1 year anniversary to one of my favorite couples, Uri and Loren!!

You might remember these two from our snowy adventure up at Mt. Charleston for their engagement session (click here to see photos!) Their wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty earlier this year, but I’ve been dying to share them on my blog as well! I think you’ll be able to tell from the photos that Uri and Loren are one of those couples that exude pure joy when they’re together. That kind of vibe made their day a treat to be a part of and photograph!

Before the ceremony, I helped arrange a ‘first look’ in the beautiful gardens of the Springs Preserve where Uri and Loren shared a private moment together for just the two of them.

The ceremony was held in one of my favorite parts of the Springs Preserve, the beautiful Garden’s Arboretum.

 After saying ‘I Do!’ and sealing things with a kiss, guests shared in the celebration by showering the happy newlyweds in bubbles as the came back down the aisle to Florence and the Machine’s “Dog Days are Over”.Uri looked radient. Her hair and makeup was done up by Francesca Lombardo of Bobbie Pin Beauty.

I loved Uri and Loren’s wedding party! Here’s Uri and her fabulous crew:
Loren and his stylish groomsmen were rockin’ grey J.Crew suits and awesome mismatched bowties:

Kassie & Ryan’s Wedding + After Session

Kassie and Ryan’s “cosmopolitan meets vintage chic” themed wedding was filled with one-of-a-kind, personal touches. As a creative couple (they are both photographers) they share a love for the arts, modern decor and fashion. They wanted a wedding that you can’t just buy off the shelf. And they had it! Las Vegas was the perfect destination for their unique celebration with family and friends, with the wedding taking place on the scenic grounds of the Springs Preserve. The ceremony was held in the Garden Arboretum, and the reception was in The Library with magical views of the strip. Here’s some of my favorites from their beautiful day.

Kassie looked absolutely breathtaking in her ornate St. Pucchi wedding dress (from the Avine Perucci Collection). The bodice was bead-encrusted, with silvery crystals that played with the sunlight.
 The ceremony took place amidst the Springs Preserve’s lush botanical gardens, as the sun peaked through the trees. Over 24,000 pink rose petals lined the aisle.Circle City Designers did an incredible job on the floral and centerpieces. And as an added bonus, the reception room was filled with the soft auroma of the stargazer lilies, roses, and hydrangea.

Instead of a cake, there was a beautiful strawberry and lemon cupcake tower made by the talented girls at Gimme Some Sugar. I adored the little signs placed in some of the cupcakes with the sayings: “All you need is love” and “Love is all  you need”

In addition to all the pretty details on the day itself, Kassie & Ryan’s invites for the wedding were created by one of my favorite invitation designers and friend, Tifany of Gourmet Invitations! Click here to check out photos in Tifany’s blog post and the custom plexiglass invitations she designed. And while you’re there, you may want to peak around. I’m sure you’ll love her work as much as I do!

The day following the wedding, we met back up for a day-after session and some newlywed portraits in the Nevada desert.

To see and read more about Kassie & Ryan’s wedding, check out their real wedding feature in the May/June issue of Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine (on the stands now)!

Big congrats to my ultra-fab couple! :-)
