Real Wedding: Kristine & Aeden Tie the Knot at Mandalay Bay

Kristine and Aeden hired us pretty close to their wedding day so that Kristine would not be in “work mode” for her entire wedding weekend.  As an event manager for a hotel, Kristine wanted to ensure that all the details were taken care of while still being able to enjoy herself.

They were such a joy to work with and I enjoyed working with someone in the industry.  We had a mutual respect for each other and I’m so happy to know that she was able to put her trust in our wedding team to coordinate her wedding day flawlessly.

Her weekend consisted of a welcome dessert reception, wedding ceremony at Mandalay Bay complete with a Star Wars light saber exit, and finally a wedding celebration dinner at Red Square.  Below are some photos from their wedding weekend.

Favors at the welcome party were chocolate olive picks:

Kristine brought everything with her and we had fun putting together this white ostrich feather centerpiece for the dessert table:

I was on a sugar high just by walking by these desserts:

Tuxedo chocolate covered strawberries are always cute!

After a little Russian vodka…the guys joined the headless Lenin statue for a photo:

The menu was very important to our foodie bride so I also made sure that Adam took plenty of photos of the food!  Perhaps this is the reason we got along?

I love wedding receptions in restaurants. The red bread plates were so pretty!

One of my favorite photos of a bouquet. I love the backdrop of the vodka vault for this deep red rose bridal bouquet:
