Weddings should be a celebration of love, and that's exactly what Nicole and Josh planned for their day. Not to mention they got married the night before New Years Eve and they rented out a nightclub to do it up right! They invited all of the people that love and adore them and their day was so damn beautiful! Nicole's vision was brought to life by an incredible team and I was so happy to be a part of it all.
This wedding started out at The Flamingo and ended in the desert with a much deserved preroll from one of the dispensaries! They tied the know at The Neon Museum with some close friends and family and then we cruised to the desert to catch the sunset. This wedding was one for the books!

I'm gonna try not to get sappy here but this wedding will always hold a super special place in my heart. This wedding took place on October 2, the day after the tragedy that shook our city. That entire morning was so somber and dark. I remember checking in with them to make sure they were alright, I knew they were here with their little girl and I couldn't imagine how terrified they must have been. The night before their wedding nonetheless. I was a little worried that maybe they might want to delay and I wasn't really sure how I felt going into the session. It always feels difficult to celebrate, be happy - during such a dark time.
Immediately upon arrival, I knew they had made the right choice to celebrate love, happiness, life. To have let the terror and sadness displace that would have been a great tragedy in itself. We briefly spoke of the events that happened the night before but decided that speaking on their life and love was a much better use of our energy. We celebrated and they brought so much light into our city! I'm forever thankful for these two for the reminder that love is truly everything.
We started outside of the chapel with their close family and friends. I love a close knit group of people there to celebrate the ones they love!
Shortly after, we started to wander downtown and we ended our time together on my favorite rooftop and then with a fancy cocktail before I sent them on their way to go party.
Their love and energy was totally infectious and I'm pretty sure at one point, Chris told me "this is exactly what we do at home" as they were just being sweet as hell to each other. I knew he was being serious because they were expert level lovers.
I adore these images and I hope you all do too!
aaah, Sammy and Craig. What a feeling I got from! I love when you can feel the love between a couple. A love that is just electric and powerful and the kind that lasts to the end of all the days.
These two have known and loved each other since they were young, which is rare. And to have a love that powerful after that long, is even rarer.
We had so much fun wandering downtown Las Vegas, we cruised the streets and played and created straight magic!!! We ended the night on a rooftop for a perfect Flora Pop wedding with Victoria, complete with a cacti altar and music!!!! (And donuts and champagne because hellooooooo) The sunset put on quite a show for us and the entire perimeter of the city stormed with electricity (the lightning kind).. but thinking back I'm pretty sure their energy just brought it all on in the most beautiful way.
On top of being totally infatuated with them as a couple, we created GOLD together!!! I can't wait to share, so here goes:
