Sarah contacted me while she was stationed overseas serving our country. After just one email she sent I instantly felt connected to not only her but her soon to be family. Sarah was lucky enough to not only gain a husband but she also gain two twin daughters in this unity. The original photo she sent me of the family to get to know them just melted my heart. Then when she was off tour, all four of them visited Las Vegas and the meeting was just what I expected. The four of them were the perfect little family. The girls were so sweet and well behaved. They sat through a day of wedding planning but in the end they did finish it off with cake tasting so what little girl wouldn’t love that.
Now let’s talk about their wedding weekend. The venue they chose was the 2810 Private Resort. It was perfect for their guest list of 60. The mansion is a three day rental which made it perfect to have their rehearsal and rehearsal dinner there the evening before. For the rehearsal dinner, they had Cut & Taste (my favorite caterers in town) host a fancy BBQ. The menu consisted of their Caesar Salad (spiced apples, brioche croutons, apple cider caesar dressing), Fingerling Potato Salad (crispy bacon & gorgonzola), Braised Brisket (caramelized onion, mashed potato and sweet BBQ), Smoked Chicken (three cheese mac n cheese, crispy shallots), Dark Chocolate Pot de Creme (macerated raspberries, toasted almonds). I had to share this menu as it was just as delicious and amazing as their wedding day menu (that I will of course describe below). After dinner, guests had the opportunity to have cocktails and swim in the pool. It is the perfect place for a laid back evening before the big day.
Onto the wedding day, which took place on a hot summer day in July. The weather was actually beautiful and although over 100 degrees, it wasn’t too hot for guests since we added some cooling options. Their ceremony took place on the bridge over the pool while guests watched from the beach area. This is the perfect spot for an intimate ceremony. During the ceremony, the twins came up for a special unity where Sarah & Craig placed lockets around their necks as a sign of unity for their new stepmother. Cocktail hour & reception took place just inside of the home in the living room that already has a built in bar. During cocktail hour passed Hors D’oeuvres of Mini Chicken Tostadas, Short Rib Barbacoa Empenadas, and Cut and Taste’s version of Pigs in a Pillow (Mustard Seed Biscuit, Ball Park Mousse, Cheddar Tuile, Pickled Mustard Seed). I can only say it is a true amazing explosion of flavors in your mouth that you would never guess by looking at it. The dinner took place outside the house on the patio where the toasts were made and the area was dressed up by RSVP rentals and the gorgeous florals from Mylo Fleur. My favorite wedding dinner menu from the fabulous Cut and Taste was deliciously made of Heirloom Tomato Salad, Rootbeer Braised Short Rib (our favorite) with potato puree & carrots, and their take on Rice “Krispy” (see photo below). Following dinner, the guests went back indoors to dance the night away. Sarah & Craig had a sparkler send off and actually drove away in a limo to a hotel for a romantic evening alone. This was truly a fun, gorgeous, intimate wedding. The venue is the perfect spot for anyone looking to marry away from the Las Vegas Strip.

A very popular trend right now in Las Vegas seems to be Private Estates and Mansions. Many couples believe that they will get more for their money at a private estate. It is important to note that many houses require a minimum stay of 3 nights for events. This is perfect for couples who have the budget as it offers an intimate setting for all of your guests.
