A romantic blush pink wedding at Four Seasons Las Vegas

I always love hearing the stories of how couples get together and what it is that brought us to this day….their wedding day! Calais and David have had many ups and downs that brought them to where there are today and because of those life experiences, they are stronger than ever and make one amazing team! Their photos will give you a glimpse of the strong love they have for one another.

They also enjoyed signature cocktails that were named after the bride and groom’s alma mater!

Calais and David knew their guests were not huge dancers so we brought in some fun entertainment! A sketch artist and Black Jack table for guests to enjoy!

Welcome Party at Neon Museum Las Vegas

We LOVE the idea of a welcome party! A welcome party is the perfect event and one heck of an icebreaker to have before your wedding day.  We all have friends and family from different facets of our lives so what a great idea to get them together before you say “I Do!”. A welcome event is also a great way to spend more time with your guests, especially if they have traveled out of the state/country to attend your big day!

Joanne and Ross chose to host their welcome party at the Neon Museum which houses iconic Las Vegas signs. They wanted an old school Vegas feel and what better location than Neon Museum! Their guests dined on delicious fresh tacos from Senor Blues food truck while listening to the talents of a local mariachi band.

Joanne came across these dinosaur planters that held succulents and knew they had to have them as a centerpiece for their tables! This dinosaur decided to hold a custom poker chip for the bride and groom!

Danielle and AJ’s Wedding Day at JW Marriott

It was incredibly hard to have a bad day if Danielle (Dani), AJ, and their families were around. My face hurt from laughing on several occasions after being around them. Their wedding was the type that literally left every wedding professional on their team saying “Why can’t all couples be like Dani and AJ?”. I can go on and on about how incredible this couple is, but I will let the photos talk for now!

Dani and AJ met while out with friends. If you ask them if their first date was perfect, you will receive a firm “NO!”. But honestly, perfect is boring! We embrace flaws and challenges and that is what makes us who we are.

You will see this contagious smile throughout every photo! Hair and makeup prep with a mimosa!View More: http://adamtrujillo.pass.us/danielleandaj

Vow Renewal: Some Insight on 25 Years of Marriage

I have been planning a 25th vow renewal with Karen and Joseph for over a year now and we are so excited for their big celebration this month at DragonRidge Country Club! Throughout our planning, I have learned what has gotten this mighty couple through 25 years of marriage! Was it easy? Absolutely not. Was it worth it? YES!

Karen and Joseph 1

Karen and Joseph were married 25 years ago in their military uniforms and boots in a very casual setting. This time around they want a full out GLAM wedding, which is why I call Karen my “Glam Bride” which in return she calls me “Glam Dream Super Planner”. SWOON! They are hard working parents who want to have a big bash with their closest friends and family. Many who are traveling from Chicago.

I asked Karen and Joseph some advice on marriage, love, and life. See below for some great insight!

Karen and Joseph Oldie

What is the hardest thing you have experienced together?
Hardest thing we had to experience in our marriage was when I thought I had lost him in the conflict Desert Storm. We were in country for about three months into the conflict, he had been attached to another unit. He had called me from his location and we had been talking when I heard explosions in the background. Soon after the line went dead. I was completely distraught, and was very nervous that he was gone. It would be a few days before I would hear from him. When I did finally talk with him, It was then when I realized he was my soulmate and I wanted to be with him the rest of my life. He was the One. I still have the letters that he wrote to me while we were getting bombed. They are one of my most prized possessions that he has ever given me aside from our children. We have been through a lot in our marriage, more than I could probably put in words but we have pulled through and stayed stronger together every since. Meeting the in-laws was a breeze…LOL!

What advice do you have for newlyweds?
Always say, ” I love you” everyday and every chance you get to your spouse even if you’re mad at them. Especially, if you’ve just been fighting or arguing with them. Just because you’re upset at someone doesn’t mean you stop loving them. The grass may be greener on the other side, but if you water your own grass like you did on the first day, your grass will be just as green.

Have patience with one another as you grow older together. You are two different people with different backgrounds, different personalities, and sometimes different cultures. Make sure you listen to what each other is saying and don’t just listen to respond.

In our busy lives sometimes we forget to make time for ourselves as a couple. Make sure to do this because in time the children leave and you may outgrow or move away from friends.

Where do you see yourselves in the next 25 years?
Hopefully in the next 25 years we will be enjoying our family and each other. Traveling to different cities and countries and crossing items off our bucket list like Paris, couple motorcycles, and cuddling with our grandchildren in our dream home!! Hopefully he’ll still be making me laugh and calling me a beautiful Goddess, and I’ll still be calling him Superman!

Does it get any sweeter?! We can’t wait to share their wedding day with you!

Karen and Jospeh

Joseph and Karen
