Kelly and Mark’s Las Vegas Backyard Wedding

Kelly and Mark decided to host their wedding in a very personal setting, their own home! With the help of some amazing wedding professionals, their backyard was transformed into a beautiful ceremony and reception for their friends and family to enjoy. It had been raining up until the morning of the wedding, which you know causes a planner to have a mild heart attack. Thankfully the weather ended up being perfect and guests were able to enjoy dancing under bistro lighting that hung from lush trees. Enjoy these photos from Alt F Photography!

Gracie and Andrew’s Wedding Day

Gracie and Andrew, who are both local school teachers here in Las Vegas, had a wedding day filled with love, plenty of personal touches that represent them as a couple, and rain! They were such troopers and kept a smile on their face and did not let the weather bring them down!

A huge shout out goes to Norina of Maple Hill Photography for being a hero that day. Not only did she run to get a pizza for our hungry bridal party after the ceremony, but she was kind enough to do a post wedding photo shoot with the couple since it was pouring rain and prevented them from doing photos at Springs Preserve. She was still able to capture some beautiful photos from the day!

We are so excited for this couple as they have a baby boy on the way!

Henna Party with Mendhi Henna

It is always an honor when we get to be a part of more than just the wedding day. Our sweet bride, Jahana invited me to her bridal shower/henna party! I attended the party along with fellow industry friends Arlene, LaVey, and Janine. The party was decked out in beautiful bold colors, delicious food, and of course, henna!

Ash of Mendhi Henna traveled from California to provide the henna services for Jahana’s party. Ash is beyond talented and a total sweetheart. We asked her a few questions about henna and a few questions about herself!

 Henna Party with Mendhi Henna

How far in advance should a bride get henna done before her wedding?
At least 2-3 days before the ceremony. This allows the stain to darken up to its deepest color which is that rich, reddish brown color.

How long does it last?

Bridal henna would last 2-3 weeks if taken care of properly.

Do any of the designs represent anything?

Different patterns come from all over the Mid East and Southern Asia. Arabic is bolder, bigger flowery designs. Intricate compact paisley and peacock designs are more from India. Moroccan designs are more geometric. Overall, wearing henna is a symbol of good luck and love. Centuries ago, it’s how the royalty would decorate themselves, kinda like a modern day mani pedi. icon smile Henna Party with Mendhi Henna

How long have you been doing henna?

It’s been about 12 years professionally, however, I have been into it since I was a little girl.

What is the farthest place you have traveled to, to do henna?

Near Cancun, Mexico about an hour away in a city called Quintana Roo. The resort was called Barcelo Maya Palace. It was the biggest wedding I have ever done! Both parties were Indian; bride was from Jamaica and groom from Belize.

If you weren’t a henna artist, what would you be?

Probably some boring job in a cubical trying to pay bills haha if anything I always wanted to own my own cute shop with girly nicknacks like candles and decor for the home.

Here is our beautiful bride Jahana and her henna. Do you see the groom’s name placed in the henna design?

Jahana and John’s Engagement Session

When my initial consultation with Jahana and John turned into a three hour conversation, I knew this was going to be one fun wedding that I had to be a part of! There are so many things I adore about this couple and I admire what a great team them are. Their love started in Queens, NY and a series of events brought them out here to Las Vegas. On the weekends, you will find this couple enjoying their weekly sushi night out, trying out new foodie adventures, or snuggling at home with their three adorable cats. We are so excited for this wedding and know there will be lots of happy tears as Jahana and John say “I Do” in April at Red Rock Country Club. Tissue please!!
