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!”
“For the ceremony, we met our 36 guests in front of the chapel. We were married at Graceland Wedding Chapel by Elvis. After the ceremony we had a wonderful dinner at the Barrymore Restaurant and then afterwards we were picked up by a double decker bus and we did a city tour with our guests. We drank beer and listened to music that we like, it was amazing! Finally, for our after party we rented a two floor suite with a big skyline terrace at the MGM Hotel.”
“It was the best day of our life (so far!) and we were so happy that our family and friends came along to celebrate our day with us.”
