Alternative Offbeat Vegas Wedding | Katie & Richard

Alternative Offbeat Vegas Wedding | Katie & Richard

 

I have been so excited for this wedding from the minute I got the inquiry.  Katie’s friend had contacted me and in the message she mentioned that the bride had tatoos and the groom was wearing yellow and purple Vivienne Westwood shoes.  I was sold.  Katie & Richard came out to Las Vegas for their destination wedding with 14 of their closest friends and family all the way from the UK.  I met up with the beautiful bride at her hotel suite at The Venetian.  The minute I saw her dress from The Couture Company I was blown away by how amazing it was, the buttons on the back were my favorite part.  It was custom made for her and her hair was even dyed to match the exact pink.  Then I saw all the other amazing details.  Her amazing hair clip/facinator with a jewled unicorn, made by the same company who made the dress.  Her shoes were completly covered in small off white beads, made by Red or Dead.  Her friend makes purses and Katies and her maid of honor both had purses custom made out of the fabric that Katie based many of the details on, including the Handmade Button Holes which were worn by the guests and the groom and best man.  The groom wore a Ted Baker suit and those amazing shoes I spoke of.  He had the coolest cuff links I have seen yet, yellow skulls.  Katie & Richard were definitely dressed unique and amazing.  The ceremony was held at the Viva Las Vegas chapel and we went for portraits in the Arts District afterwards.  For their reception they went to dinner at a restaurant on the strip and then were to have another reception back home in the U.K.

Richard & Katie are both from and live in Birmingham UK.  They met at a train station in Manchester after they had both been to the same gig (Limp Bizkit (they were only 18 at the time))  They spent about 6 hours together waiting for and travelling on that same train home.  After several years Richard took Katie away to Iceland to propose (pretty impressive huh).  Katie had always wanted to visit there and she had absolutely no idea he was going to pop the question.  In fact, he waited until the last night and wined her, dined her, and took her over to look at the Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral one last time.  He drops to one knee in the freezing cold and asked her to marry him.  Katie never felt so happy or giddy in her life.  They decided to get married in Vegas because they have never been ones for tradition and wanted to do something awesome and exciting.

Photographing them was so much fun, they couldn’t stop smiling and laughing together the whole time.

Delano Las Vegas Wedding | In Suite Reception | Yetha & Tyler

Delano Las Vegas Wedding | In Suite Reception | Yetha & Tyler

I had the absolute honor of photographing Yetha & Tyler’s wedding day a few weeks ago.  It was filled with so many special details and emotions, I truly felt honored to be a part of it.  We started off with Yetha gettting ready in their suite at The Delano hotel.  Yetha had all her girls with her to get ready.  She did her own makeup with a little help from her friend and did a fabulous job.  She wore Vera Wang and it looked amazing.

Yetha is quite impressive.  She made the paper flower bouquets for her girls and the reception decor as well as the mens boutonnieres.  The bridesmaids gifts were also made by Yetha and they were beautiful necklaces to wear.  The cake topper has a pretty amazing story behind it, I just have to share.  In 1997 Tyler’s maternal grandmother, a ceramics artist, had a secret.  2 years before she had made a cake topper figurine for Tyler’s older brother’s wedding.  But now, with her health failing, she worried she wouldn’t live to see the other siblings grow up and would miss her oppurtunity to create wedding cake toppers for them.  Then she had the idea to paint 3 identical ceramic figureines for each sibling.  She painted the representations of her grandchildren, but left the spouses to be completed later.  She wrapped and boxed the figurines carefully and included notes to her three grandchildren and gave them to her daughter for safekeeping.  It just so happened that all 3 siblings became engaged to be married within one years time of each other.  Their mother had the spouses painted on the figurines and on Christmas morning of last year all 3 couples had identical boxes to open underneath the tree.

Yetha & Tyler’s ceremony was held at the Chapel at Mandalay Bay.  I reunited with them again afterwards for some quick photos as the sun went down and then we all went up to the beautiful Penthouse Superior Suite at the Delano where the reception was held.  The room had floor to ceiling windows with breathtaking views of the Las Vegas strip.

During my short time at the reception there were several amazing speeches which created tears, smiles, and lots of laughs.  After the last speech, Tyler had a surprise for Yetha.  She had wanted a brooch boquet but was not able to have one.  Tyler secretly arranged for all of the family and friends to bring a special brooch just for Yetha so that she could in fact have her boquet.  What an amazing surprise for Yetha.
