Havana Room Wedding Tropicana Hotel

I had the privilege of meeting Stacy & Charles while setting up for a wedding in this gorgeous space.  They happened to be doing a walk through of the venue and I had a moment to speak to them.  A week later Stacy contacted me and from then on we began planning this beautiful wedding.  Stacy is from California and Charles is a local so throughout the year I had the opportunity to meet with them for planning.  Every time I met with them they were so sweet and both had a twinkle in their eyes at each other.  Charles always had the perfect answer to his bride… “Whatever you want, dear”.

The day began with hair and makeup by Concierge Makeup.  The ceremony and reception took place in the Havana Room at the Tropicana Las Vegas.  The beautiful flowers were created by the ever so talented Naakiti floral who brought all of Stacy’s visions to life.  Stacy provided the vases so all of her local guests had an extra take away from the wedding.  The ceremony was officiated by Stacy’s Stepfather which put the perfect personal touch into the wedding.  During the ceremony since Stacy was not only gaining a husband but also a son, they did a sand ceremony to unite the three of them.  Catering and the exquisite wedding cake was provided by the Tropicana, including the exquisite groom’s cake of a camera (everything edible- see awesome photo below).  Charles is a videographer/videographer and with his surprise there wasn’t a cutting of that cake as he wanted to keep it forever.  The menu consisted of a three course plated dinner featuring: Lobster Bisque, chipotle caesar salad,  guests choice of herb grilled chicken breast or roasted organic salmon.  During cocktail hour the bride and groom’s favorite food chicken wings were served.  The Chef custom made the wings of their favorites: Buffalo Hot, Salt & Vinegar, Lemon Pepper, and Teriyaki.  Also during cocktail hour they had a violinist, Tony B performed.  The signature cocktail chosen by them is their favorite drink of Kentucky Mules. All of the photography in this blog and from their wedding day was shot by Indigo Foto.  They also had cinema created by K+A Creative.  The final personalized touch were their adorable wedding favors of maple syrup.  The story behind it being they are each other’s perfect match because one only likes the outside of a pancake and the other only eats the inside so together they have a whole pancake (with maple syrup of course). Stacy & Charles, I could not thank you enough for having us as part of your perfect wedding day.  I look forward to seeing your future together!

Havana Room Wedding at the Tropicana Hotel

 

4d8a7277-las-vegas-wedding-at-havana-room-at-tropicana-marissa-and-nate-steven-joseph-photographyI have never met a bride more organized and ready to go then when I met Marissa eight months prior to their wedding.  She knew exactly what she wanted and how she wanted it. When she said she needed a wedding planner, it was the first time I thought are you sure you need one? (Kidding)  Joking aside, Marissa and Nate were such an adorable couple.  They each complimented each other so perfectly.  Coming from the midwest, the rivalries between in state schools are very serious but in the end, they put their differences aside for love.  You see, Marissa went to Oklahoma, and Nate went to Oklahoma State.  Being the amazing bride Marissa was though she called me for a top secret surprise that only me and the person coming would know.  She decided to surprise Nate with Pistal Pete (Oklahoma State’s mascot).  It was quite the journey coming here as he couldn’t fly because of the size of his head so he had to drive from Oklahoma State to Las Vegas.  This could not have been a better surprise.  Nate and his groomsmen looked like a child seeing Santa.  It was such a memorable moment. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous from start to finish as I knew it would be.  Thank you so much Marissa and Nate for choosing us to be part of your wedding day!

Tropicana Hotel Havana Room Wedding

From the second I met Aaron and Joey I knew I had to be part of their wedding day.  Not only for the amazing ideas they had but also just because they showed so much love and passion for each other.  Of course I all our couples are in love but these two were different because that sparkle never left their eyes.  Meeting them made me realize how important it is to always show your significant other how in love you are with them.  They wed over memorial day weekend inside of the Havana Room at the Tropicana.  Their request to guests were black tie formal and only black attire.  The details that went into this wedding just made it come to life.  As a couple in the entertainment business, they had to deliver and did they ever.  Aaron even had a chance to perform a beautiful duet with his friend Autumn that he sang to his groom!

Aaron & Joey, thank you for choosing us to be part of your celebration and trusting us throughout the planning process.  You both are an inspiration to everyone who knows you.  The love you two share does not come often and I am so thankful I was able to witness such a true romance.  There was a team of amazing vendors that helped make this wedding possible at the bottom of this post.  Lisa and Jamison, thank you for capturing this wedding.  I enjoyed working with you both again and can’t wait until the next one!  Please enjoy some of my favorite images from this romantic event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A very special thank you to all of the talent that went into this gorgeous wedding:
