meredith & jake - florapop lakebed surprise wedding

I've always been a big fan of non-traditional weddings because the couple gets to do their wedding day however they want. For me, that is truly the most important part of any wedding day. Experience is absolutely everything. For some people this means inviting no one, having no pressure from anyone at all. And for others, it means having their very closest, best friends and family. This seems to be coupled with lots of happy tears, the kind you cannot hold back.

Meredith and Jake planned this entire wedding in secret. They talked their best friends and close family into coming to Las Vegas for Meredith's "30th birthday" which happened to be the day after the wedding. (What a way to spend your last day in your 20's!)

She planned the most perfect FloraPop teardrop wedding and organized Elvis to come out and serenade. There were lots of tears shed by everyone. And then lots of confusion when Elvis continued on with the ceremony after singing his "walk down the aisle" song. There is this fine line during ceremony where no one wants to ruin THE moment of all moments, but they also want it to be perfect. I noticed the bride kind of giggle at her girls once she realized Elvis wasn't just saying sweet stuff to start the day off right- they were full blown getting married! Which was the plan to begin with, so they just rolled with it and had a great time. We all had a good laugh about it after and went on to toast to their beautiful love, dance and celebrate!

dee & boyd- a legendary neon museum wedding

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!
