An elopement wasn’t always on Sam and Bailey’s radar, but the couple decided to go for it… and what better place than Las Vegas?! A big wedding never felt right for the two, especially after Sam’s mother had passed away. The two aren’t from the U.S. but had already planned to join their friends in the states for a honeymoon celebration and Sam’s 30th birthday. Their friend Elle threw the idea of eloping out there and S + B looked at each other and thought perfect! Small, no fuss just us. What could be better?!
Chloe Ireland was their photographer, and as you’re about to see, the photos came out absolutely stunning! The bride boasts that not only is Chloe ridiculously talented, but she is also such a beautiful person! She made Sam and Bailey feel so comfortable, which is exactly how you should feel on your big day! Now let’s have a look at this dreamy + fun Vegas elopement!
We Are Tickled Pink!
A moment of silence please for this dress! 👏🏻
Bailey had toyed with the idea of wearing white but it wasn’t her… the bride loves color! 💘 She had her heart (pun not intended 😉 ) set on this dress since seeing it on Instagram a few years back. It’s from New York designer Lirika Matoshi — and we’re simply obsessed!
“When we decided on Vegas, the stress of what I was wearing went away. I knew anything goes, and could truly be myself bright, and colorful, the bigger the better!”
Saying ‘I Do’, In Style!!!
“We both love to travel, love music and collecting vinyls and I love color! When we decided on Vegas I knew we had to do it at Sure Thing Chapel! After seeing the venue’s heart, aesthetics, and the record player, it just screamed us!”
The Sure Thing Chapel couldn’t have been a more perfect spot for these two to become one!
Love Birds Take Las Vegas!
These heart-shaped earrings went perfectly with the bride’s aesthetic! Sometimes statement earrings aren’t just an option, they’re a necessity!
Now it wouldn’t have been a Vegas elopement if Elvis didn’t make an appearance, am I right!?
Can I say the whole thing?!
Dream boy, Dream venue, Elvis driving us in a pink Cadillac, karaoke and walking the Vegas strip with our best friends. Can it get any better?
On the Record, This Day Was MAGNIFICENT!
It had always been a dream of Bailey’s to own one of Rachel Burke‘s incredible tinsel jackets and this was the perfect occasion to wear it!
DO IT (elope)! I couldn’t recommend it more! The day at the end of the day is about you and your partner. And you can celebrate with everyone when you get back!
What happens in Vegas…stays in Vegas! A huge congrats are in order for this couple! We loved getting a glimpse into your big day and are grateful you’ve chosen to share it with us! Cheers to you!
