Family-Focused, Fun Vegas Wedding with a Pizza Party Reception

Adelina and Aiden chose to make their April 2022 Vegas wedding family-focused as, prior to their celebration, neither of them had seen their families for over two years! “I cried tears of joy for weeks when New Zealand opened up for travel post-pandemic,” Adelina told us. “Initially we sped up our wedding and just thought we’d elope, but the guest list kept on growing.

It’s over a millennium old, from around the same time as King Athleston, who is buried in the Abbey where we got married.” Cool, huh?
