Our First Commitment Ceremony: Flamingo Las Vegas

Laurie and Renee are the sweetest couple and I was so thrilled when they decided to book with Green Orchid Events! I’m excited and honored to be able to plan this first commitment celebration and I’m hoping for many more! Our wedding day coordinator Angelica McDonnell was on site on the wedding day to coordinate their entire day!

The Nevada Domestic Partnership Act went into effect on October 1st just in time for their October 17th commitment celebration. Laurie and Renee were so excited to be able to apply for domestic partnership so this celebration was extra special.

Their color scheme was a combination of orange, burgundy, and deep reds.  The entire outdoor terrace was lit up by twinkle lights on their existing trees along with par can uplighting with amber gels.  Guests danced the night away to the sounds of the “CEO” of Fun Jodi Harris!
