Glam Las Vegas Inspired Wedding

Glam Las Vegas Inspired Wedding (18)

Laura and Dom got engaged at the Grand Canyon while on a trip to Las Vegas. As they both love the city and 1950s glam, they decided that should be their wedding theme. Laura wore a red wedding dress, and they had a polka dot theme for the bridal party; the bridesmaids wore 50s style polka dot dresses and the groomsmen had polka dot pocket squares. For entertainment they had casino tables, a pianist, and Laura did a choreographed dance with her dad.

“We both wanted everyone to enjoy our wedding day”, said the bride. “We wanted a very short ceremony followed by a big party. Everyone gasped when I entered the room in a red dress! I had a charm with a photo of my granddad on it attached to my bouquet which a friend gave me the night before the wedding. My granddad was very important to me and passed away in June 2015.”

Kitsch Meets Urban Las Vegas Elopement

Kitsch Meets Urban Las Vegas Elopement (37)

When Jorden and Greg decided to marry, they knew Las Vegas was the perfect place for them. They wanted a day with a glamorous grunge vibe, but with a touch of kitsch. Their ceremony was at The Little Vegas Chapel and they were married by (who else?) Elvis!

“We wanted the wedding to be kind of a glamorous and grunge”, said the bride. “I wore a long, sparkly dress but we took pictures in front of a motel, a liquor store, and even a dumpster! In fact one of my favourite photos from our wedding day is the one with a dumpster in the background. I thought it was awesome because it fit our style perfectly and was something I’d never seen before!”

Wedding Inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Wedding Inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (11)

Sarah and Sebastian were inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for their April wedding. They wanted to have the trip of a lifetime, Cadillac convertible and all. They invited a big group of friends and family to fly out to celebrate with them.

“Being from Vienna, getting married in Vegas was pretty unique and a huge novelty” the bride began. “We thought it was really special that all our friends and family were coming the long way from Austria, England, Mexico and all over the USA too. Getting married with all our family and friends there was the best thing we could experience.”

The couple flew to Los Angeles and then drove themselves to Sin City. “Along with our photographer, we drove from from Los Angeles to Vegas in a 1970 Chevy Impala. We stopped along the way to shoot some of our wedding pictures in the desert. It was a big party on the highway because people kept seeing us driving in our wedding clothes. They started honking, waving and taking pictures. It was such a great experience and so much fun!”

Downtown Las Vegas Fuss-Free Wedding

Sara and Logan didn’t elope in Vegas, because they wanted their closest friends and family to be there, but they did want a fuss and stress-free wedding that didn’t take a long time to organise.

“We were originally planning to do a more typical wedding at home in Los Angeles with 100 or so people”, explained Sara, “but after a couple months of entertaining the thought of what we thought we ‘should’ do (and all of the overwhelming details and costs that came with it), we took a step back and revisited what we actually valued in a wedding. The Neon Museum in Las Vegas was the first and only venue we had both lit up with interest about, and when we started to seriously look into it, everything fell into place.”

“The ceremony was so much fun! We met Pastor Pete, our officiant, about a half hour before the wedding. One of the requirements of getting married at the Neon Museum is you have to use their preferred officiant group (Elegant Vegas Weddings), so we didn’t get to choose who married us, but he was awesome. This definitely wasn’t his first rodeo, and he used the stories and details we sent him in a questionnaire beforehand to create a really heartfelt and beautiful ceremony for us.”

But not just any pink dress, the most gorgeous, unusual thing you’ve ever seen! This bride caused quite a stir when I sneak peeked a shot of her on Instagram and Facebook, with so many of you asking where her outfit was from and asking demanding to see more!

I am so excited to share Audri and Cody’s amazing Vegas elopement today. This one might just have become a contender for one of my all time favourite weddings too!

The couple were married at the Little White Wedding Chapel. “Our ceremony was short and sweet with a few of our close family members and friends”, said the bride. “We chose the drive thru option to be seated in there 60s pink Cadillac under the ‘tunnel of love’ that’s painted with baby cherubs hidden in clouds in a starry night sky scene!”

“We wanted our wedding to look unique, and to have a sort of dreamy feel to our photos. We just wanted to have fun and look back at our pictures with our son and that he’d think we were pretty cool! For the actual vibe of the wedding and our photos we got a LOT of ideas from another couple that was featured on Rock n Roll Bride – Ainsley and Sebastian! Their whole look was everything!”

Run Away with Me: A Neon Graveyard Elopement

The perfect mixture of adventure and fun, Las Vegas was Yasmin and Leigh’s number one choice for their October wedding. They always wanted to get married abroad, and after seeing Las Vegas weddings featured on this very blog, they decided it was the perfect place for them.

“We kept our wedding a secret from our friends and only told our families one week before we flew out!” said the bride. “We stayed for a week at the Venetian. On our wedding day, our photographer met us in our room and took some getting ready photos, then we walked through the hotel and casino in our wedding outfits – so many people smiled and congratulated us, Vegas is so warm and friendly! Our ceremony was at the Neon Graveyard, where all the old neon signs are retired.”

Not being particularly comfortable in front of the camera, they wanted to find a photographer who would make them feel at ease. “We loved Sam Arroyo’s photos, particularly the ones she had taken in the desert and thought this would work perfectly in Vegas. She was our biggest expense as we flew her in from California, but she was worth every penny. After the ceremony we drove out to Red Rock Canyon for more photos. It was so peaceful and beautiful and I’ll always remember walking through the desert hand-in-hand with my husband. It was the perfect way to start our marriage.”
