Shanelle & Tim traveled from Australia for an intimate wedding with their closest family and friends. We spent the day exploring the sites of downtown Las Vegas and celebrated their wedding ceremony at Viva Las Vegas’s fun 50’s style Doo Wop Diner Chapel officiated by none other than The King!

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 WeddingLoved 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

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.

The serene rolling hills in Napa Valley, California made the perfect setting for Connie & Jason to say a very heartfelt ‘I do’.

The Vintage Estate - Napa Valley Wedding

The day started at the Tuscan-inspired Villago Inn & Spa, where the girls and boys got ready in anticipation of the day ahead.

After the ceremony, the celebration continued with a delicious al fresco dinner surrounded by the The Vintage Estate’s lush landscape. It was topped off by dancing in the Barrel Room. The perfect end to a perfect day.

Two of my close friends tied the knot in beautiful Utah! :-) I’m at a loss for words of how perfect this day was, and how much these two mean to me, so rather than type up a storm I’ll stick to what I know best and let the pictures do most of the talking.

Brittany & Patrick - Waldorf Astoria Park City WeddingBrittany and Patrick’s wedding took place at the gorgeous Waldorf Astoria in Park City, where they said their vows in a quiet, serene setting of green grass, mountains, and perfect blue skies.
