Four Seasons 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:

Gorgeous Lake Tahoe Wedding

Allison and Brandon are not only a gorgeous couple but their wedding was without a doubt also just as gorgeous.  This wedding is different than most of the weddings we plan because instead of becoming lifelong friends after the wedding, we already had a close friendship.  In fact, I have basically known Brandon as long as I have known my husband.  He lived with us for a few months when I first moved into our home.  I will never forget when he met Allison.  It was like a spark went off and although we were not there, I knew that he was completely smitten over her.   Every time he talked about her he had a glowing smile that you could even “see” when you were just on the phone with him.  When we had the chance to meet Allison, the second I said Hello to her, I knew one day these two would marry.  Both of them just had this contagious love and smile from the very start of their relationship.

Living locally in Las Vegas, they decided to escape Sin City and wed in the ever so beautiful South Lake Tahoe.  Their wedding took place at Edgewood Tahoe.  The outdoor ceremony overlooking the mountains and the lake was breathtaking.  This is a backdrop that you can’t find as it is just the natural beauty of the land.  The reception was also at Edgewood just inside with the same views that looked unbelivable as the sunset.  The bridal party made their grand entrance letting guests know that it was time to party by toasting with shots of tequila.  Everyone at this wedding definitely had an amazing time as the dance floor never had room.  Thank you Allison and Brandon for trusting us to be part of your wedding day.  A huge thank you to their amazing photographer Nina Photography for capturing their day.  Here are some of my favorite photos from their wedding day:
