Laraine and Richie: A Turquoise and Red wedding at JW Marriott

If you believe in angels, then I swear the wedding angels send me the most amazing couples! Laraine and Richie will always hold a special place in my heart. They were beyond patient and understanding when I gave birth to my little girl just one month prior to their wedding! Putting myself in their shoes, I would have panicked, but they remained calm and knew we had things under control!

The couple chose to have turquoise and red as their wedding colors. I loved it as it was something different and thanks to the talents of Naakiti Floral, it came together beautifully! After spending some time with their family and friends at the rehearsal and during the wedding day, I could see why Laraine and Richie are such a dynamic duo. I am so glad to have the memory of their wedding thanks to Adam Trujillo Photography and Video.

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!
