Jen & Pat

Wedding Planners Las Vegas

Jen and Pat met with me about a year before their wedding date on a trip to Las Vegas to check out wedding venues.  When I met with them it was basically an interview for me as they didn’t know if they needed a wedding planner or even what their exact plans were.  I remember the meeting so well because they were going to visit venues after our meeting and they had set up appointments around 12 different venues.  All of which were very different from one another.  During our meeting even though I wasn’t hired as their planner I gave them planning advice to narrow their choices as it is difficult getting too many options.  About a week later, I received an email from Jen thanking me for meeting with them and she claimed they did not take my advice as they should have.  Long story short, they booked me that day for their wedding.  Jen and Pat are probably two of the sweetest people I have ever met.  Both of them had smiles that elimuinated the room when they walked in and when they looked at each other you could see that sparkle in their eyes.  The wedding was just as beautiful as them.  Throughout the whole process being an indecisive bride, Jen trusted my opinion which could go either way.  It is always a risk for any bride or groom not knowing what their venue looks like until the food tasting or even the day of the wedding. I remember being so nervous as we went to their food tasting to show them the venue but it was exactly what they wanted.  They loved every detail about their wedding and so did I.  Jen actually chose her flowers and they turned out absolutely gorgeous.  Every little detail was amazing for their wedding.  We loved being part of this event as everyone there had such a good time and was such a great group of people supporting this loving couple.  I think the biggest compliment I have ever received was from Jen and she said: “Desi, I feel like a guest and I’m just having so much fun”.  This is our ultimate goal for every wedding.  Thank you Jen and Pat for having us as part of your wedding day.

Pool Party Wedding Reception

When I met Sara and TJ, I knew I had to immediately be part of their wedding.  They got married in June in Las Vegas and I never encourage an outside reception but theirs was brilliant.  I will add first, the family was coming in from the Ukraine and couldn’t wait to attend a traditional American wedding but this is not quite what they experienced.  The wedding ceremony was a beautiful traditional ceremony at the Sayer’s Club inside SLS.  Their guests were told though to wear resort casual and even their swimsuits.  Many were stunned when they invites arrived and no on showed up to the ceremony in their swimsuits. Everyone did however come to the cocktail hour and reception in their beach wear and ready to take a dive in the pool.  Their reception took place at the Lux Pool at SLS and it was a pool party reception.  They had the huge swan and flamingo rafts as decor for the pool so guests could enjoy a float on them.  This definitely wasn’t your traditional wedding reception but it was a huge hit.  This wedding was so much fun to plan and it truly was a great idea.  I encourage all of my summer couple’s if they must get married in Vegas in 100 + degree weather, why not do a fun nontraditional reception.
