A bride in a blush pink tutu skirt, the Las Vegas desert as a photo backdrop and a budget of just €2000 – yes, that’s right, you are able to bear witness to one of the coolest weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of publishing!
“I met my future wife more than 3.5 years ago in a cold December, just before Christmas”, the groom began. “The idea was to pick a Christmas gift for myself so I’d decided to go to perfume boutique where she worked as a sale assistant at the time. It was one of those ‘love at the first sight’ kind of stories. She was the best Christmas present ever!”
Gintarė and Edvinas, who live in Lithuania, flew to Vegas in May to be married by Elvis at the Little Vegas Chapel. Following their quickie ceremony they did photos with their local photographer James Westray all over the city. The ended the night with burgers and beers at their hotel pool – now what can be better than that!?
If you’re dreaming of pumpkin spice and snuggly knits then you are going to adore Kristen and Lloyd’s wedding. Almost all of their reception decor was thrifted, bought online and/ or put together by the couple themselves. They hand-painted a globe to use as their guest book (LOVE THIS!) and made magnolia leaf place cards as well as gold spray-painted dinosaur toys for some added fun and a nod to the groom’s love of Jurassic Park!
They met five years ago when Lloyd, from the UK, was in Orlando with his band. ” I pursued Lloyd and convinced my friends to go with me to the next bar so I could run into him again!” Kristen laughed. “He was only visiting from England but luckily I was able to convince him to stay!”
Their wedding was inspired by vintage elements with a touch of Hollywood glamour and a dash of Rock ‘n’ Roll. They also had lots of greenery which was also reflected in the wedding party’s outfits. “The inspiration for our wedding was our personalities and passions”, she continued. “I am studying biochemistry so we had test tube rack centrepieces filled with flowers, Lloyd loves Jurassic Park and travels around the world for work so we had travel themed decorations and our gold dinosaurs!”
