Couples Who Meet Unconventionally

Couples now a days are not the couples who have dreamed of their weddings since they were little kids. They were too busy wondering what they were going to be when they grow up! Careers have taken precedence and people are waiting later in life to get married. It makes sense that they are finding ways to date that is going to accommodate their busy schedules and careers! Cue the dating apps, social media interactions, and traveling! This is how people are finding the one now! We have had two of our couples meet on Twitter! I love that as they were attracted to each other’s words (140 characters to be exact) first.

I was asked by Channel 8 news to come into their studio to help with a story they were covering on how couples are meeting unconventionally! Thank you to Mauricio and the Channel 8 news team for the opportunity!



Britany and Kevin: Love at Legend’s Ranch

Timing is everything and it sure was when it came to Britany and Kevin meeting! Five years ago they saw each other for the first time. Britany saw Kevin on the dancefloor while out with friends. She left that night not saying anything to him. One year later, Britany’s friends were telling her about this guy they would love for her to meet as they felt they would be a great fit. Well that guy was Kevin! It was fate that brought us to their wedding day.

The weather teased us all day with scares of dark clouds rolling in throughout the day. Luckily it barely sprinkled allowing these gorgeous photos to happen!

Legends Ranch served as the perfect backdrop for this boho/rustic loving couple. A combination of round tables draped in satin linen and long wooden tables adorned the open space surrounded by lush greenery. Their guests dined on BBQ from Lucille’s BBQ and danced under bistro lighting.

Britany and Kevin are truly beautiful people inside and out! I am lucky enough to keep up with them and a lot of exciting things have happened since they have been married. They are officially homeowners, Britany went from school teacher to crazy talented photographer, and Kevin became captain for the fire department! Congratulations Britany and Kevin and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

Karen and Joseph: 25 Year Vow Renewal

You might remember Karen and Joseph from a past blog post sharing their insight on how they successfully made it to 25 years of marriage. For a refresher, Karen and Joseph were married 25 years ago in their military uniforms in a very casual setting. They have been through many highs and low within their 25 years including a moment where Karen thought she would never see Joseph again. This time around they knew they had to go all out for their vow renewal and the one word they used to describe this event was “GLAM”!! It was such an honor to see them renew their vows in front of their closest friends and family and made me excited to think of what 25 years with my husband will look like.

Geode Wedding Cakes

One of my past brides tagged me in a photo on Instragram saying “One of your brides needs to do this cake!”. I couldn’t agree more! These cakes stopped me in my tracks while I spent a good minute admiring the details.

What is a Geode? Well, I will let Wikipedia take over this part and I will stick with the pretty. Check out these cakes below for inspiration if you are thinking of a Geode cake for your wedding!

Sarah and Kevin: Engagement Session at Springs Preserve

I am a huge believer in being at the right place at the right time and Sarah and Kevin were at the right place at the right time when they met teaching at the same school here in Las Vegas. They are no longer Las Vegas locals and Kevin has since changed careers into law, but Vegas will always give them a sentimental feeling. They will be getting married at Springs Preserve this spring and so they wanted to give the venue a test run by doing their engagement photos on property. You know a couple is meant to be yours when you have a full discussion together on how much you love Raising Canes. Cheers to chicken fingers and a beautiful wedding to come!
