Four Seasons Las Vegas Fountain Terrace Wedding

When I think of Jinley and Mario’s wedding, I see glamourous outdoor elegance.  Having a Las Vegas wedding without actually feeling like you are in Vegas is something that the Four Seasons provides.  Jinley reminds me of myself as she knew exactly what she wanted and how she wanted it.  Every detail she wanted we made sure came to life on her wedding day.  Her husband Mario is quiet and just wanted her to get what she wants. (The perfect match)  From the invitation details to the cake and entertainment, every little detail was well thought out and executed.  Speaking of the custom wedding invitations, along with place cards and seating chart were all produced by 1st Impressions Invitations.  After first speaking to Jinley over the phone, we had everything planned within weeks so she could relax and enjoy their engagement.  She couldn’t have been an easier bride to work with and although she is from Hawaii, there was no stress at all.

The day began with hair and makeup by Sarah Redzikowski & team for 8 bridesmaids and the mothers.  The ceremony and reception took place at the Fountain Terrace at Four Season’s Las Vegas in April.  The weather was 80 degrees with minimal wind and the perfect spring day for an outdoor wedding.  The beautiful flowers were created by the ever so talented Naakiti floral who brought all of Jinley’s visions to life.  During the ceremony, the romantic music was provided by TAJ, a duo act from T Entertainment.  Rustic signs throughout the wedding were created by a very talented and close friend of mine Kelly from her Etsy Shop From Kelly with Love.  Catering and the exquisite wedding cake was provided by the Four Seasons.  The menu consisted of 4 tray passed Hors D’oeuvres: mini lobster club, beef tenderloin, Maryland crab cake, tempura shrimp served during cocktail hour.  The reception menu was a 4 course plated dinner that included: portabello mushroom and cheese ravioli, crab louie, roasted and carved prime rib, and their 3-tiered custom wedding cake served as a duo plate of strawberry shortcake & carrot cake.  (Check out the cake photo below… it was absolutely breathtaking).  They also had two ice carving luges from Ice Occasions; DJ, photo booth & Marquee Letters from Elegant Entertainment, and Bistro lighting from LED Unplugged.  All of the photography in this blog and from their wedding day was shot by one of my favorites Susie and Will.  They also had cinema created by Adam Trujillo.  The highlight of the wedding of course was having their dog Weezy as the Ring Bearer.  Jinley and Mario, I could not thank you enough for allowing you to trust in me to plan and be apart of your perfect wedding day.  I look forward to seeing what the future brings you both!

Please enjoy their wedding photos below and thank you Susie for capturing such beauty in every element:

New Year’s Eve Las Vegas Suite Wedding- M Resort

Joey & Lori

Las vegas suite wedding

Who wouldn’t want to attend a New Year’s Eve wedding especially when this amazing couple are the hosts? I first spoke to Joey and Lori right after the holidays in the beginning of 2014. The way we were introduced is bittersweet. They had booked an amazing officiant, Reverend Jimmy Mac with whom I have worked with in the past and became a great mentor. They knew if he approved than I was the perfect fit for them seeing as Lori’s stepfather actually attended High School with Jimmy Mac. About a month before the wedding we had shocking news that saddened all of us which was the sudden passing of a great friend and amazing man Jimmy Mac. If it weren’t for him, I would not have been part of this amazing and gorgeous wedding day and I know he was with us all in spirit.

Lori and Joey met online.  One of my blogs “First BLIND Date” was actually inspired by them.  They met after months of speaking online and had the perfect date at Lori’s sister’s house.  He was blindfolded when he showed up as well as Lori and they sat for hours talking to each other and enjoying each other blindfold.  Lori’s bridesmaid actually put on the whole date and listened through baby monitors.  At the end of the date Joey couldn’t take it any longer and had to see his gorgeous date.  Please see my past blog for more information on “First Blind Dates”.

Lori had one request for her wedding and that was she wanted it on New Years Eve. We decided to rent a suite and have a New Years party/wedding done Vegas style. Since we began planning so far out, most hotels did not know the room rates and if there would even be a suite available for them to rent. After using my negation skills I believe we could not have chose a better location. Joey and Lori were wed in a two story loft suite at the M Resort. For those of you unfamiliar with this resort, it is located about two miles south of Mandalay Bay off the strip but still on Las Vegas Blvd. With breathtaking 270 degree views you can not go wrong with this choice in venue. They rented the two connecting rooms as well.  One room we had all the catering in and the other room we had a photobooth in for guests to enjoy.  The photobooth doubled as favors for their guests and was another guestbook for the couple.

Being a New Year’s Eve wedding, their theme was a fun, elegant party.  They served their guests hot and cold Hors D’oeurves and an assortment of Beer, Wine, liquor and of course Champagne.  Lori and Joey love Rotari Rose so I special ordered 2 cases for them through the liquor distributor.  As guests entered the room for the ceremony, they were served Champagne or Beer.  Lori joked that she had “Champagne taste on a Beer Budget” so the preceremony drinks were perfect for her taste.  We used the rest of the champagne as a midnight toast when we did a countdown to midnight.  Each champagne flute was rimmed with gold sugar to add that extra elegant touch for their New Year’s Eve wedding.

The two story suite was set up perfectly for guests to enjoy music and dancing.  The DJ was set up on the top floor balcony overlooking the bottom level of the suite.  The bottom is where they guests were able to dance and get their drinks from the bar.  It was the perfect touch for any hotel suite wedding.  As I mentioned previously, the M Resort has breathtaking views.  On New Year’s Eve at midnight something beautiful happens in Las Vegas in which their guests enjoyed perfect views from.  The Las Vegas strip has fireworks in different locations throughout the strips which was the perfect ending to a beautiful wedding.  I even got a little choked up by the fireworks and had tears in my eyes.  You can’t make up or dream of such a beautiful fairy tale.

Finally at the end of the night just after the fireworks, they wanted guests to grab their coats, a drink, and meet us downstairs for a sparkler send off.  Everyone who came received sparklers and we timed it just right to give the couple their final send off.  It was a magical moment for Joey and Lori and definitely a memorable wedding/ New Year’s for everyone who attended.  In my opinion, one of the best ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve is a wedding.  Especially if you can make it intimate and beautiful like this Suite wedding.  No one likes planning their New Year’s so why not plan it for them with not only a great party  but by sharing your love for one another in front of your favorite and closest friends.
