Our most recent couple was a double shoot, engagement shots and a full wedding. Kelly & Gary came all the way in from the UK and brought forty two of their friends and family members, yes, I said FORTY TWO! Since this was their first trip to Vegas, they left it up to us to pick the locations for the photo shoots. For the engagement shots, we went with Downtown Las Vegas at the Fremont St Experience and the East Fremont District. DTLV is always a favorite for us, but it turned out to be a very good choice. The couple was blown away by the neon. It was exactly what they envisioned 'Vegas' to be, but were not able to find on The Strip anymore. I was stoked that I was able to deliver exactly what they were looking for. I was even more excited by how amazing the photos turned out.
Their ceremony was held at the Juno Gardens of Caesars Palace (beautiful by the way). Immediately following, we did a quick shoot around the iconic fountains and Roman columns of Caesars. Since the entire group was along for the ride today, they rented the two largest limos in all of Las Vegas! NTS Limo provided a massive stretch hummer and a monster of a limo called the Big Blue. From there we made a quick stop at Bellagio to catch the fountains and then off to the Vegas Sign. This group loved hamming it up for pics down there. We finished at Mandalay Bay where the reception was being held in the Marquee Room inside Slice of Vegas (vegan options!). My favorite part of the reception? Kelly & Gary's choreographed dance routine! This got their group going and the dance floor was packed the rest of the night.
Kelly & Gary were so enamored by their Vegas experience I wouldn't be surprised to see them back here next year for their anniversary, probably minus the FORTY TWO man entourage! ~ Mike H
