Neon Graveyard Wedding in Las Vegas: Amber + Grant

Neon Graveyard Vegas Wedding

Amber + Grant are a couple who isn’t afraid to beat to the sound of their own drum, so an intimate wedding ceremony, held at the ever-so-colorful Neon Graveyard in Las Vegas, Nevada was a perfect fit for the two of them! A Vegas wedding wasn’t just a spur of the moment idea for this rad duo. They travel to Sin City at least once a year (it’s one of their favorite places to spend time together) and liked that it was a fun, neutral location to gather with their friends + family who are all spread out all over the country.

In addition to the backdrop, there’s so much about this celebration that’s just so good. Amber wore a lovely Nicole Miller dress paired with a pretty killer turquoise statement necklace. Grant was decked out in TopMan from Nordstrom. Their fun, neon theme continued with a casual dinner following the ceremony at The Peppermill. And Jenn Emerling expertly captured it all!

Amber was incredibly hung over but held it together. Grant accidentally shaved off his beard moments before the "first look", and Amber's brother walked her down the makeshift aisle last minute.

It’s fair to say that this is one of the most fun backdrop choices out there. Just loving the Old Vegas + Fremont Street portraits above, and that Amber, Grant + Jenn made time to venture off into the barren desert for even more photos!

Magical Tennessee Waterfall Elopement: Amanda + Michael

Magical Rainy Elopement

Rain can often put a damper on a wedding day, but that wasn’t the case for Amanda + Michael.  After planning for months for their sweet waterfall elopement at Jackson Falls (near Nashville), Hurricane Patricia tried to throw a wrench in their plans. But, love truly does conquer all, and their talented photographer, Sophie Epton, says it best when she shares, Amanda and Michael didn’t get caught up in the perfection of every tiny detail, but instead embraced the weather because they just wanted to be married! 

Ashley and the team at Southern Social Events + Rentals was vital in keeping things together when the weather forecast began to fall apart. In addition to helping Amanda + Michael plan and design their nuptials, they helped keep everyone dry under the many umbrellas they came prepared with and, in turn, some beautifully moody portraits + images were possible…

A romantic bouquet by Petal & Pine (tied with ribbon by Frou Frou Chic) was a perfect fit for the monumental occasion.

During the ceremony, Amanda + Michael read vows that they wrote for one another, which were beautifully re-penned by Jessica R. Crowell, in a wavy, whimsical path to evoke an idea of water that they would be standing in while reciting their love.

It was absolutely surreal standing at the base of Jackson Falls and reciting our vows. It had been raining the entire day, but for a brief moment the rain stopped just long enough for our ceremony. Surrounded by so much majestic beauty and being married barefoot in the water was such a magical memory that I will never forget.

Sophie says, Although we had to adjust a few items on day of (like scrapping the table setup for their private dinner), our incredible vendors still came together to help give Amanda and Michael the day they had always envisioned.

And don’t miss the lovely film below by Alyssa Torrech Videography:

Have the best time, and make it about you! The greatest part about planning an elopement is that you have the freedom to go anywhere you want, and plan it out exactly how you see fit. Even if it takes a little while to save up for what you want to do, take your time and make sure if feels truly like "you."
