“We got married after spending just 12 days with each other…”

Oh MAN am I excited to share Krystle & David’s wedding story with you today. The couple got married just twelve days after they properly met and they couldn’t be more in love if they tired. This is their story…

“We met online via our professional wedding photographer forum, DWF.”, the bride told me (they are both professional photographers) “We actually first met when both of us flew across the country to attend the DWF annual convention, in Nashville this past January.”

“We talked that first weekend about getting married and joked around about going to get married by Elvis back then and I told him I would have married him with a ring pop because I just wanted to be with him. We actually decided to just get married mutually, and when he came out to see me the couple days before we eloped to Vegas, he surprised me with a real proposal! We were playing Mario on my Super Nintendo because he swore he was better than me, yea that sucker failed miserably and I kicked his ass. He then pulled out a Star Wars tin lunchbox filled with my favorite Canadian chocolate bars, I love you mints, and dousche bag gum. At the bottom of all of that was a ring pop. He told me he loved me, wanted to be with me forever and then some, and then asked me to marry him. Nothing over the top, but I can’t think of any better way to be proposed to than Mario, chocolate, Star Wars, and wearing sweat pants.”

Ahhh! But it doesn’t stop their people, just you wait until you see their gorgeous wedding!

They were married in Graceland Wedding Chapel and had an informal dinner at the Grand Lux Cafe afterwards. As lovers of all things retro and “obnoxiously bright” Vegas was the perfect place for them. Both being wedding photographers they had seen their fair share of what they didn’t want over the years so the decision to do something completely different was quite an easy one.

Mexican Themed Wedding with a Tattoo Twist

Courtney & Dan got married at MGM signature patio, Las Vegas, and had their Rock n Rollin’ Reception at Diego’s restaurant in MGM. The couple both love Cinco De Mayo, collect hot sauce, their first date was at a Mexican restaurant and they love Mariachi bands, so the wedding has a slight Mexican theme.

Courtney originally had a traditional wedding dress, but a few days before she got on the plane to Vegas she went to the fitting to find her dress was to small. It was fate! Courtney knew there wasn’t going to be enough time to fix it, so she went to a prom shop in Philadelphia and found this gorgeous dress.

Sunshine of my Life

Las Vegas strip, yellow sundress love, tattooed back gorgeousness.

Monique & Dustin were already married but they acted as models in Vegas for a WPPI ‘shoot out’ and luckily for them one of the photographers was the fabulous NJ based Feuza Reis.  I love the epic sunshine in these shots, mirrored by their yellow outfits.

Cheesily Fabulous ~ Vegas Baby!

Vegas baby! Meredith send me such a great description of Reed & Alicia’s cheesily fabulous Vegas-themed wedding that I just have to hand this one over to her…

“Reed & Alicia planned their fun, quirky wedding in just six weeks!  When they began looking for ceremony locations & venues, the two came across this small chapel located near the beach where they usually walk with their golden retriever.  After looking inside and seeing the bright red carpet & a cheesy stained glass window (with a rainbow & two doves) at the altar, Reed & Alicia came up with the idea of having a kitschy Las Vegas-themed wedding in this Vegas-esque chapel. They found 60 pairs of “Elvis” sunglasses on Ebay and envisioned having their guests put on these sunglasses right after they were pronounced husband & wife, during their kiss.”

Rock n Roll Oz Day ~ Eloping in Vegas, Married in Sydney

Sarah Kate & John got married in Vegas with only their closest two friends as witnesses. They were hitched in a 50’s diner by Elvis and rounded off they day at The Venetian Hotel and with a ride on the gondola.

A few weeks later the pair held a intimate and gorgeous wedding at Camellia Gardens in Caringbah in the south of Sydney for their immediate family and 10 of their closest friends. Sarah Kate wore a black dress from Bridal Collections Erina, leopard print shoes from Leg Avenue Shoes and amazing limited edition cupcake earrings (there were only 100 pairs made) from Omerica Organic.

The bridesmaids wore hot red dresses imported from The States and boys were allowed to wear whatever they liked because John didn’t feel right making them wear anything specific – they just left it up to them to do their own thing!

Aren’t these wonderful? What a gorgeous couple and wedding party! I am smitten…
