Courtney & Josh’s wedding was the perfect mix of Hollywood Glam with a fun dose of Vegas Casino. By this, I mean throughout the cocktail hour and entire reception, they had gaming tables open for their guests to feel the Vegas vibe throughout the night. Courtney and Josh were such an awesome couple in every way! They are both super detailed oriented that I received full maps of the event space on how they wanted each item they rented to be displayed. Every detail they wanted we made sure came to life on their wedding day. I met with them in person for the first time a few weeks before their wedding and I instantly felt like they were my best friends. They are both so sweet and compliment each other so perfect that it makes anyone feel so comfortable to be around.
Their big day began with hair and makeup by the amazing glam team from Rouge Skin Hair and Makeup. The ladies in adorable rompers left the best impression on me as I entered the room to all their fun, laughter, and the BEST thing every… Chambong! For those of you champagne lovers also and do not know about these, google and purchase one asap! The guys were definitely a little more relaxed and played Heads Up on their phones. The ceremony took place inside one of my favorite venues Sayers Club at SLS. The room itself that I mentioned before is so simply gorgeous that we added minimal decor of candles along the aisle for a little more romantic vibe. The ceremony was officiated by a friend of the couple and they had wrote their own vows which were so perfect for each other. The cocktail hour and reception took place inside of Bazaar Casino. Courtney and Josh are foodies and they love Jose Andres which is a huge part of the venue selection since Bazaar Meats catered. During cocktail hour the guests served croquetas de pollo, Chef’s selection of cured eats with Pà Amb Tomàquet, and tray passed cotton candy foie gras. They also had the opportunity to enjoy amazing specialty cocktails which included their famous Liquid Nitrogen cart. The had the opportunity to actually play their choice of three 6 deck Blackjack tables or 1 craps table. This was so much fun and instead of having their guests lose money, they chose to have fake money so even those that don’t gamble could join in. The gaming tables were a huge hit throughout the evening. The beautiful flowers were created by The Palette who brought all of Courtney’s visions to life. The actual vases Courtney and Josh provided so that a local hospice could enjoy the flowers after the wedding. Each table had their own Polaroid cameras so guests could capture fun moments throughout the night and drop in the photo box. Every place setting had the guest name in 3D printing. The reception family style menu consisted of super-giant pork-skin chicharron, cauliflower steak, brussel sprout petals, buttered potato puree, and the couples absolute favorite, Suckling Pig! The suckling pig was first presented to the room before being served to the guests. It was quite the experience for their wedding guests. For dessert Bazaar Meats served little tarts to go with the four cakes and three dozen truffles the couple ordered through another favorite place Milk Bar. The cake flavors were dulce de leche, birthday, salted pretzel, and chocolate malt which my mouth is watering just thinking of how tasty they were. (Check out the dessert table below which are all milk bar’s product and the plated dessert was from Bazaar Meats). Gambling wasn’t their own source of entertainment as they also had a fabulous DJ Mike Fox spinning the night away. All of the photography in this blog and from their wedding day was shot by the incredible photographers R2 Studio from Flagstaff, Arizona. They also had cinema created by the Simply Cinema team who traveled from Arizona as well. Courtney and Josh, I could not thank you enough for having RJ and I as part of your out of the box wedding. It was a true pleasure meeting you both and being part of this milestone in your lives. I look forward to seeing what the future brings you both!
