Glam Vintage Vegas Wedding at the Neon Graveyard

Amber and Christopher are a couple who weren’t afraid to buck tradition so an intimate wedding ceremony, held at the oh-so-cool Neon Graveyard in Las Vegas was perfect for their glam, retro inspired day them!

“We wanted a wedding that was more ‘us’ and was fun”, Amber told us. “We don’t really love dancing or the traditional wedding activities. We were married by an Elvis that we didn’t tell our guests about beforehand! We asked our guests to wear their Vegas best which included feathers, sequins and fun prints.”

Vintage Las Vegas Elopement Meets Vietnamese Tradition

Meeting 20 minutes after ringing in the new year in 2013, Toan and Sewa decided to elope to Vegas to celebrate with a fusion of Vietnamese and American style. They took elements of traditional Vietnamese and American wedding ideas but made them work for them. “Eloping meant we got to do it our way, without the pressure of what guests may think”, the bride said.

Toan was keen to honour her roots, as well as embrace an American wedding, meaning she got two dresses to celebrate in. She explained, “One thing that was important to me was wearing a traditional red Ao Dai for my wedding. Wearing red is auspicious in my culture and we wanted to make sure our day was good vibes only. Vegas provided us a perfect venue for that. We also included the red element in our florals and instead of a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony before the ceremony, we opted for an intimate champagne toast which is typically a western concept.”

The Addams Family Meets a Rockabilly Las Vegas Elopement

Kennedy and Mitch were set on a quick and simple elopement and they chose Las Vegas as the place to do it. Kennedy told us, “No vows, no music, just us, Breena our officiant, Brandi our photographer and all our family and friends on livestream.”

They chose The Neon Museum in for their ceremony, a gorgeous venue with plenty of scope for Brandi to take some incredible shots. Vegas has so many spots for epic photos, and the couple were keen to get to as many as possible.

The couple did their day completely their own way, citing their theme as ‘The Addams Family meets Rockabilly’ with a DIY coffin ring box and fake flowers from the craft store to create a bouquet. Kennedy’s ring was her Great Aunt’s and they celebrated with pizza afterwards.

Gothic Glamour Vegas Elopement With a Touch of Old Hollywood Charm

Elopement guarantees you can do things your own way, with no pressure from anyone. Having hosted many family holiday gatherings, Shannon and Nina knew that for this celebration, they needed to escape, just the two of them. Shannon explained, “There’s something so rock n roll rebellious about running off to Vegas!”

Obsessed with all things Halloween as well as metal music, the couple got married in October, choosing The Neon Museum in Las Vegas, with a vibe to suit their style. “The neon museum gave a post-apocalyptic, yet glamourous rocker or old Hollywood movie star vibe!

Dark, Edgy & Intimate Valley of Fire Wedding

Marissa and Darren didn’t want any of the ‘fluff’ that comes with a traditional wedding day; they just wanted to get married and focus on the two of them. The theme for their September day came naturally from their dark and edgy personal style, with help from Cactus and Lace to take their ideas and apply them to the Valley of Fire location the couple chose for their big day. 

They had just 10 guests in attendance and skipped out on having a traditional wedding shower, reception, and bridal parties. Therefore they were able to keep to their $5,000 budget for their day, excluding flights and guest accommodation. Marissa cites hiring wedding planners as the best decision she made for their day. “During the months leading up to the wedding, people would always ask us “how’s wedding planning?!” and my answer was always that I literally have done nothing! We bought our outfits and booked fights & hotels. Everything else was taken care of by Cactus and Lace. I had absolutely zero stress throughout the whole thing!”

Laidback & Intimate Red Rock Canyon Vow Renewal

When Kiesha and Stephen originally got married a decade ago, only a handful of their loved ones were able to make it due to short notice and Keisha wore a Target clearance dress that wasn’t her favourite. “Ever since, I’ve wanted a ‘redo ‘ where we still keep things small and intimate, but I get a beautiful dress and we have everyone we love surrounding us!”

They didn’t plan their day like a wedding; instead, they chose a ceremony location and knew that they wanted to pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate. The rest fell into place as reasons to keep the celebration going.
