Our Vegas Wedding
Updated: Jan 24
I met my husband in Vegas four years ago, so we decided to have our wedding celebration there. We had such a great time and were able to keep it formal and casual all at the same time. It was so much fun walking around the casino during Viva Las Vegas in our wedding attire and getting the nicest blessings from complete strangers. It was a small gathering of just about 20 people or so.
Here we are in the exact spot of the bar (I know) of our meeting! We just had to get a photo op there on our special day. I wouldn't have it any other way.
After our ceremony at the historic Little Church of the West, it is so precious! Our photographer was very professional and so sweet! The really made everything work so well. My dress is from Unique Vintage and I had hand sown red flowers and iridescent beads into the skirt.
Yes, we're wearing our VLV wristbands! ;)
All of our attendees!
We had a dinner reception at another fabulous Las Vegas establishment, Battista's Hole in the Wall. Truly a Hole in the Wall! The food and service was fantastic, and we had free unlimited wine!
They conveniently had a classic car outside of the chapel.
Carrot cake from Whole Foods! Delicious and nice and easy for our little wedding.
I'm big into DIY so our wedding favors were all done by me. Little candies and casino inspired trinkets! Nice and easy to pack away into luggage.
I hand made corsages for my sisters who were my wedding party, and this bow for my littlest sister who was our flower girl.
The chapel itself is the oldest building on the Vegas strip. It was in the film Viva Las Vegas where Elvis and Ann Margaret's characters renewed their vows. All sorts of old hollywood stars had ceremonies there such as Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, and my favorite, Betty Grable. It had so much charm!
Here it is pictured in 1951. It was origionally built in 1943 and was a big part in the Las Vegas wedding chapel culture.
