Our Vegas Wedding at Chapel of the Flowers

blogImage

It has been my teenage dream to get married in an elegant chapel in Sin City after watching so many Hollywood movies and sitcoms with scenes taking place in Las Vegas. Last summer, Johnny and I were travel companions and Vegas was the first destination of our trip. Soon after, we decided to be travel companions for our life’s journey and we planned to tie-the-knot in Vegas as this place has a special meaning to us.

From Coast to Coast and a Las Vegas Wedding

Jason and Brooke Runyon are amazing. Upon arriving in one of our limos, Jason was really nervous and asking lots of questions during his check-in process. He wanted to make sure everything was perfect for Brooke and I don’t blame him either! When a couple like Brooke and Jason have a Deluxe First Look in their package, it is a lot of fun for me as a Wedding Coordinator to meet them separately. That way, I get to see how much the couple is really meant for each other. When Brooke stepped out of the limo, she was glowing! She looked fabulous from head-to-toe. Brooke was so laid back and relaxed, she was definitely an easy bride to check-in and get ready before her ceremony. Jason is one lucky guy! They seem like they perfectly balanced each other.

A hop, skip and a jump into their Las Vegas wedding

I LOVED THIS COUPLE! They immediately came out of the limo with huge smiles on their faces! Kayleigh and Jordan were the sweetest couple! Jordan stepped out first and then he helped his beautiful bride out of the limousine. When Kayleigh came out, she looked happier than ever. Jordan made sure he knew both the photographer’s and my names, which is so thoughtful. Once out of the limo, they practically skipped into the chapel.

Are You Experienced?

Lately it seems like more of our couples are adding off-site photography sessions to enhance the memories of their wedding day. As a photographer, going off site gives me a feeling of rejuvenation. I love shooting all over our beautiful chapel property, and every couple has their own unique inspiration for me. But sometimes it’s nice to get ‘outside’ and see what other backdrops and locales Las Vegas has to offer for photographing brides and grooms. More often than not, our couples choose locations on the Strip near their hotel – Bellagio, Paris, and the Venetian are quite popular; and Cosmopolitan inside City Center is rapidly becoming one of our favorite spots.

Behind-the-scenes of a Vegas Wedding

 

I have been working at the chapel for more than seven months now and have gotten the privilege to edit so many fantastic weddings. The offsite weddings that I get to edit are especially meaningful to me since the photographers usually choose to edit them themselves. I recently had the chance to edit Mr. and Mrs. Ngo’s offsite photo session. They got married here in our Magnolia Chapel on March 6, 2012. I cannot say enough about how great the photos turned out for this couple!

Making your Vegas Wedding a Destination Wedding dream come true

 

Yes, I admit it, I am a TLC and WE network junkie. I will sit and watch “Say Yes to the Dress” or “Four Weddings” episodes back-to-back, all day long, even if I’ve seen them before (which, I usually have). My husband can’t understand it at all because the last thing he wants to do when he gets home is watch television shows about what he does all day at work. I’ve explained to him that being a Wedding Planner is more than just a “punch-in, punch-out” kind of job. It is an ever-changing, always evolving, opportunity to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for people that they will remember for the rest of their lives. I think that he, like many people, was under the assumption that getting married in Las Vegas was what you see in movies like “What Happens in Vegas” and “The Hangover.”

Feelin’ Lucky in Vegas

Michaelyn and Joseph Bruer are feeling lucky in more ways than one! When Michaelyn stepped out of the limo, she was beaming. She just glowed with beauty. I loved her dress and her hair piece; she really was gorgeous from head to toe. Joseph looked very handsome. They seemed like the perfect match for each other!

Moments That Take Our Breath Away

Moments That Take Our Breath AwayThere are a few moments that take your breath away. Marci and David Phariss make one cute couple. They are a couple I will never forget. Let me tell you why! The bride’s name is Marci, which happens to be my name too! She even spells her name like it should be. I loved that I was able to coordinate their wedding. She kept saying to me, “You just have such a great name!” and I would always reply with something like, “Thanks, you too! It’s a great name!” I remember joking with her saying, “I guess I need to find a guy named David to marry, too!” We both laughed about that!

Not once but twice, Vow Renewal

 

Melisa and J.P. Feustel got married at Chapel of the Flowers inside the Magnolia Chapel just about 11 years ago. They were coming to Las Vegas, once again, but this time just for a vacation, or so J.P. thought. However, Melisa had other plans. She had actually planned a secret renewal of vows ceremony for her and J.P. She planned everything from Florida, and even bought a cute white dress for the ceremony. About two hours before their 8:00 p.m. ceremony, Melisa asked J.P. if he would marry her again. He was shocked, but then happily agreed!
