Mexican Themed Wedding with a Tattoo Twist
May 10, 2010
Courtney & Dan got married at
MGM signature patio, Las Vegas, and had their Rock n Rollin’ Reception at Diego’s restaurant in MGM. The couple both love Cinco De Mayo, collect hot sauce, their first date was at a Mexican restaurant and they love Mariachi bands, so the wedding has a slight Mexican theme.
Courtney originally had a traditional wedding dress, but a few days before she got on the plane to Vegas she went to the fitting to find her dress was to small. It was fate! Courtney knew there wasn’t going to be enough time to fix it, so she went to a prom shop in Philadelphia and found this gorgeous dress.
As a tattoo artist, there was no way Dan was going to let his bride have all the limelight. He looked fabulous in his sharp, yet funky suit and Vans.
Thanks to the ever delightful Kristen for sharing this wedding with us. I love!

Epic Las Vegas Elopement: Ainsley & Sebastien
January 2, 2014
When I featured Ainsley and Sebestien's engagement shoot in September I dubbed it "the coolest engagement shoot to date". I was pretty sure that their wedding would be suitably kick ass too but nothing (and I mean nothing!) could have prepared me for this.
While I was hanging out with their wedding photographer Janneke Storm in Queensland, she started to tell me more about their upcoming elopement in Las Vegas. I made her promise then and there to send me the photos to blog afterwards. Luckily for me (and you!) she did.

Breaking Vegas: Punk Rock Wedding at The Flamingo
September 21, 2015
Kenzie and Jeremy had one goal for their August wedding - to break Vegas! "As soon as we got engaged we knew we didn't want a typical wedding", said the bride. "We didn't want anything in a church, or anything really traditional. We also knew we didn't want to have anything huge, and one way to eliminate a massive guest list is to make it a destination wedding."

Peach Plum Pear Photo
February 18, 2013
High school sweethearts James & Ashley were married at Crane Arts in Philadelphia in October. Despite the Autumnal time of year, the couple didn't want an obvious colour scheme - they wanted a rainbow!
"Our wedding was very DIY", wrote the bride. "My husband and I can be crafty when we want to be and this wedding really let our creative juices flow. I hand painted all of the sugar skulls and signs while Jim was busy building the dance floor and the entranceway. We also got some old doors from my grandmother, painted them and used them for the ceremony backdrop. One thing I am particularly proud of is the beer bottle cap heart that we screwed to a pallet. We of course drank all of the beer ourselves! I also found some amazing Day of the Dead fabric that we used to make the photo booth, Jim's bow-tie, and I also wrapped the flower bouquets in it."
Fun-Filled Mexican Fiesta Wedding: Ellen & Rory
May 7, 2014
Ellen and Rory were married at Cottiers, a bar, restaurant and theatre venue in the West End of Glasgow. Their day had a bit of a Mexican fiesta feel with the oilcloths and paper banners from Viva la Frida. They also had hand stitched bunting and dried chillis hanging from the ceiling! Most of all though they just wanted a fun day to celebrate with their friends and family.

Pretty Pastel Wedding inspired by Mexico and Music: Adrien & Nate
October 10, 2014
Adrien and Nate met through their mutual love of music. The bride was in a band, Trouble Lights, and the groom booked them to play at his music festival. So clearly, music was going play a big part in their wedding. They were also inspired by the décor of Mexico, but they added their own unique twist to it.
