Pink Pin Up Las Vegas Vow Renewal

Staysi and David did the formal wedding thing the first time around, so when it came to their vow renewal, they decided to go FULL Vegas elopement style. As they’re both from Las Vegas, they wanted something fun and larger than life to celebrate ten years together – and they smashed it.

“We are both very into pin up/rockabilly culture, so we wanted our looks to be totally us, just a little more formal!” Staysi explains. “I have bright purple and blue hair and so designed and made a 50s inspired wedding dress for myself, with a matching mini me dress for my daughter, Wynter Lee. David is a great sport and knew he had to find something equally as fun so he went with pink pants and a pink flamingo shirt!”

They got married at the Fremont Wedding Chapel, officiated by Elvis – obviously, who else?! “Our favourite part was Elvis singing my daughter’s favourite song, Viva las Vegas. It was such a fun part of the ceremony, with everyone singing along and dancing. Our daughter being involved was the best thing about planning it – whenever she sees pictures or hears stories about our wedding she always gets so bummed she was the only person not there. she was so excited about being our maid of honour in her pink dress!”

Glamorous Boho Las Vegas Elopement… with a Rock n Roll Flare!

Alex and Tamara actually met in high school, and although it took several years for their relationship to blossom (despite Alex’ regular attempts to take Tamara on a date!) once they finally reconnected they were inseparable, and soon found themselves creating a life together.

The laid back couple hadn’t actually planned to get married, instead they had just booked a fun getaway to Vegas – in fact Tamara actually thought that marriage was never on the cards for them. “I always thought if two people love each other why do they need to be legally bound to one another?” said Tamara. But after three years of living together, two pit bulls and two children later, they thought it would be the perfect way to complete their family unit. They always knew they wanted a stress-free, easy-going wedding so a Las Vegas elopement was perfect for them – carefree and super fun, just like them.

James Bond Meets Tarantino Vegas Elopement

It’s no big secret that I love Las Vegas and it’s weddings! I’ve been four times now and I’m always desperate for an excuse to go back. On my last trip we visited and fell in love with Red Rock Canyon, which is just a 25 minute car journey away from the Strip. It has to be one of the most beautiful and dramatic landscapes I’ve ever seen with my own eyes so you can imagine how much I love that Jen and Mike shot their wedding day portraits there!

Jen told me all about their celebrations, “All we knew is we wanted to get married and that we wanted it to be an elopement. We bought my dress and his tux and planned on having one hell of a time in Vegas to kiss 2016 goodbye. Our goals were to just have some damn good meals (which we did) and play a bunch of slots and arcade games (definitely did as well). Oh, and we had to visit Red Rock Canyon.”

But not just any pink dress, the most gorgeous, unusual thing you’ve ever seen! This bride caused quite a stir when I sneak peeked a shot of her on Instagram and Facebook, with so many of you asking where her outfit was from and asking demanding to see more!

I am so excited to share Audri and Cody’s amazing Vegas elopement today. This one might just have become a contender for one of my all time favourite weddings too!

The couple were married at the Little White Wedding Chapel. “Our ceremony was short and sweet with a few of our close family members and friends”, said the bride. “We chose the drive thru option to be seated in there 60s pink Cadillac under the ‘tunnel of love’ that’s painted with baby cherubs hidden in clouds in a starry night sky scene!”

“We wanted our wedding to look unique, and to have a sort of dreamy feel to our photos. We just wanted to have fun and look back at our pictures with our son and that he’d think we were pretty cool! For the actual vibe of the wedding and our photos we got a LOT of ideas from another couple that was featured on Rock n Roll Bride – Ainsley and Sebastian! Their whole look was everything!”

Vintage Las Vegas

Missy and Dave flew over to Las Vegas for the wedding and had a reception for all their friends and family back home in the UK afterwards.

“We rolled with the vintage Vegas theme”, said the bride. “We wanted the wedding to be very much about just the two of us and Vegas seemed like the ideal place! It suited our personalities as two professional performers and was just the right amount of kitsch for our personal tastes! We made our invites a very loose open invite to Vegas (but with no expectations at all!) and were delighted that 16 friends and family decided to make the journey to be with us on our big day. We then welcomed 100 friends and family to our reception on our return to the UK two weeks later.”

The bride wore a genuine 1950s dress with the groom representing his punk roots with a tartan suit! “Dave is the drummer in heavy metal band Reign of Fury. We met while both working on tour with punk band The Damned (me dancer, him drum tech) in 2007. Dave proposed live on stage during one of my curtain calls.”

There’s just something about a Vegas elopement. Yes, for many people it might seem like a clichĂ©, but I never fail to get excited about seeing a super cool, super in love couple getting hitched on their own terms. After all, there’s nowhere else in the world quite like Las Vegas!

“Our inspiration was Ainsley and Sebastian’s epic Vegas elopement AKA the coolest wedding you’ve ever blogged!” said Linda. “We had a trip to the US booked but weren’t planning on getting married there, in fact we weren’t even going to Vegas! One day, I was scrolling your blog, saw their wedding and showed it to Dan. We decided then and there to use the trip as an excuse to get married! When we saw that wedding blog we knew that it’s what we wanted to do too! We basically owe it to your blog that we got married at all and had the wedding that we did!”
