Las Vegas Elopement with Elvis, a Classic Car Photo Session & a 1980s Vintage Wedding Dress

Aaron and Pheobe’s goal for their Las Vegas elopement was to have all the Vegas cliches, and they weren’t at all sorry about it! They wanted to be married by Elvis and to drive out to the desert in a classic car for photos. They flew out from Australia for their wedding and did it entirely on their own terms.

“We were never going to have a traditional wedding”, Phoebe told us. “We already have two children together so getting married was never high on our priority list. We both hate being the centre of attention and so the thought of having a big wedding was terrifying to us and not our idea of fun so that’s why we chose to elope. Although it was sad to not have our immediate family and friends celebrate with us, we chose what would make us the happiest and most comfortable on our special day.”

The bride wore her mum’s wedding dress and headpiece from 1980, making it her own with gold boots and a leather jacket from ASOS which she had ‘only fools rush in’ embroidered on the back. “I think one thing that stands out the most about our wedding is the fact I wore my mum’s wedding dress”, she continued. “The dress was custom made and worn by mum her on her wedding day 38 years prior. It was definitely very special and made my mum very proud even though she wasn’t there to witness. After our photo session was over we were dropped back at the hotel and we had a quick outfit change and went and had burgers for dinner and then decided to get a’ Vegas’ tattoo each so we would always remember our special day.”

An Iconically Rock n Roll Bride Inspired Las Vegas Wedding

A big, fancy wedding was never on the cards for Monya and Erika – it just didn’t appeal to them. So, when they began planning for the February nuptials it was Las Vegas or bust! The chose the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel as the location for their private vows, and hired Jamie Y for a portrait session at the iconic Neon Museum afterwards.

Monya wore a custom black dress made by a friend which had a high-low front, a long train and patches all over the sleeves. Erika’s trouser and vest set were also made by the same friend. They both wore personalised leather jackets made by The Mermaid Effect and with their wedding date and ‘Rock n Roll Wifey’ on the back! Monya even wore a necklace with an engraving saying ‘Rock and Roll Bride, Las Vegas February 29, 2020’ and they both rocked a ‘Rock n Roll Bride’ Rock n Roll Bride x Veronica Dearly pin!

Intimate Ghost Town Elopement

Ty and Aaron spent just $1000 on their wedding because they eloped! They used Simply Eloped to help them plan the day, and chose Nelson Ghost Town, which is a 45 minute drive from Las Vegas, as the location. They found the whole process easy and stress-free because they left everything to their planner and they had no guests to deal with. All they had to do was choose their outfits and show up – what a dream!

The ceremony, officiated by Timeless Connection, was short and sweet and they read their vows to each other underneath a rugged and beautiful arch with cacti and mountains as their backdrop. Afterwards they wandered around the town with their photographer, Alycia, and found different locations to take their photos.

Stylish Family-Focused Vegas Wedding with a Magical Desert Backdrop

Sarah and Dave fell in love with the desert when Sarah lived in Arizona acting as her younger brother’s caregiver as he recovered from a heart transplant. It was a difficult time, but the beauty of the desert had a real impact on them. When Sarah returned to New York, the couple started looking into weddings in the Southwest, and planned their wedding for exactly one year later; there was no better place to celebrate their love for one another and their families. 

When it came to planning, they improvised most of it and chose elements that felt really special to them. They didn’t have a budget, instead keeping everything reasonable and making decisions that felt right for them along the way. They wrote their own vows, chose vendors whose aesthetics they loved and kept their guest list very small to give themselves a day that felt so very them.

Seventies Western Elopement on the Outskirts of Las Vegas

Listen, if loving Vegas elopements is wrong then I don’t ever want to be right. When Audrie and Morghan decided to get married, they knew early on that a big, fancy, expensive wedding was not for them. They wanted to do things entirely on their own terms (and on their own!) and so Vegas was the perfect spot for them.

Inspired by (in their own words) sexy, seventies vintage cowgirls, they planned their wedding with a $5000 budget (which included the honeymoon!) and a goal to have a wedding that would kick their marriage off as they meant to go on.

Quentin Tarantino Inspired Vegas Elopement with Sequins & Western Vibes

Amy and Alex’s wedding is a little different to a lot of the Vegas elopements we feature, because they didn’t actually have their ceremony photographed. However, I’m pretty sure you’ll agree that their post-nuptial portraits by the iconic Ashley Marie Myers are epic enough to publish all on their lonesome!

Their look for the day was kind of sparkle meets cowboy, with Amy rocking a gorgeous midi length all-over silver sequin Ganni dress, and Alex in an authentic cowboy hat and boots and vintage bolo tie.

“We met in a now defunct club in Southend-on-Sea”, began the bride. “We knew of each other before through mutual friends but that’s the night we really hit it off. Our elopement theme was Quentin Tarantino meets David Lynch.”

Their inspiration to elope was just the fact that they wanted to do things entirely on their own terms. Vegas gave them that and then some and luckily all their families understood and were happy for them to do their own thing. Of their £8000 total budget, their flights were the most expensive part but everything else ended up being much more affordable than a wedding back home would have been, plus they got an amazing holiday out of it!
