Colorful. Wild. Vibrant. Full of Desert Magic. Those are just a few ways to describe today’s zealous elopement inspiration, coming straight to you from Las Vegas, Nevada! Photographer Tiffany Sangster wanted to do something different than the traditional Vegas elopement — you know: Elvis, casinos, cocktails galore — so she ventured out to the vivid Seven Magic Mountains. The art piece, just South of the Strip, is a photographer’s paradise, with brightly colored rocks to frame shots, and the glowing desert light.
Tiffany tells us: The artist, Ugo Rondinone, truly knows how to make a statement piece — fitting perfectly into the Vegas “WOW factor.” We wanted to play off his colorful large-scale design, where the location is physically and symbolically mid-way between the natural and the artificial. These rocks plays dramatically in this desert setting, and with such a bold design, we didn’t want to take away from the artist, but still wanted our couple to be the main focus. We decide to center in on one color, by adding in the pink hues in the bouquet, earrings, and cake.

How sweet is that artwork of one of the mountains? Such a darling detail to slip into your invitation suite!
Have you ever heard of the Seven Magic Mountains? If you’re road-tripping from somewhere in California to Las Vegas, or reverse, they’re definitely a fun place to stop at + photograph!
Complementing the bright hues of the painted rocks, Bloomers Flowers & Decor crafted this vibrant bouquet!
Letting the landscape speak for itself, it was all about tying in the small details.
Switching up the looks, the bride first wore a sleek + minimalistic two-piece dress, perfect for the desert heat. Then, for a few bolder + edgier shots, she donned this gorgeous black gown.
We love how makeup artist, Chantry Wagstaff, brought in a bold hot pink lip!
Last, but certainly not least, we’re fawning over this slightly pink marbled drip cake from Cupcakes by Julie!
Simple, yet electric.
