When I first arrived at the Neon Museum, aka the Neon Boneyard, here in Las Vegas, I saw Michelle standing with her new hubby, Ben, holding her hand-made bouquet of buttons, and I thought how incredibly lucky I was. Wow, she was just gorgeous! And Ben wasn’t too bad to look at either. 😉
I loved her 50s wedding dress, and the polka-dot detailing on it. After we finished our session at the Neon Musuem, we went for a strip tour, where our next stop was at the infamous Las Vegas sign. Then we travelled to the Bellagio, Planet Hollywood, The Paris, The Venetian, and then our day came to a close at the New York New York Hotel. I had such a great time with these two! They travelled all the way to Vegas from Australia and couldn’t have imagined a wedding more perfectly suited to them.
I had an awesome time hanging out with you guys!
Angela and Doug are so…. so…. what’s the word? Easy! I mean easy in a good way, of course! They are super chill and laid-back. I had a blast working with these two, as they made my job easy as pie!
The day began by getting ready at Palms Place at The Palms Hotel. Angela looked absolutely stunning! Her hair and makeup looked beautiful all night long – a true testament to the skill of the artists she hired!
I loved her fun and frilly dress from Celebrations Bridal! What wasn’t to love? It was glitz and glam and added a lot of flare to her dream wedding at Siena Golf Club.
Angela and Doug weren’t sure if they wanted to do a first look initially, but went ahead and decided it was a good ice-breaker for them to take the edge off a bit before the ceremony. They both expressed how much pressure it took off the rest of the day as well. Their first look was also very sweet and endearing. <3
Following the first look, we headed over to Siena Golf Club for the ceremony, which was absolutely gorgeous! Pastor Pete did a fabulous job, and made all of the guests enjoy themselves, as well as evoke a great big laugh from Angela after a funny joke!
The various shades of purple and silver floral and decor looked really beautiful, and I loved the purple up-lighting which really added a beautiful effect to the look and feel of the room, as well as added a needed pop to the photos. 🙂
Angela and Doug, you are both beautiful people, and your wedding was a blast to photograph! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this truly special and intimate day!
Our little Savannah Grace passed away on January 21st earlier this year. Although we miss our little girl, we are so happy knowing that she is in a much better place – a place that is free from pain and suffering. She’s free to talk and walk and be filled with joy.
Several of our dear friends gave us some thoughtful gifts in remembrance of our Savannah.
We absolutely love this wind chime. It is called “Amazing Grace,” and when the wind blows it sounds a lot like Amazing Grace is being played. We love this! The chimes hang right outside our office window, so every time the wind blows, we think of our Savannah Grace. Not only do we cherish this hymn, Amazing Grace, but it was a very special song that my dear friend Kira sung at Savannah’s memorial. Her voice is absolutely beautiful!I found this really neat photo holder, with a bird sitting outside of the cage. It reminded me of a caged bird that has been set free. And this is how I feel about Savannah.This is a framed photo that Terrence took of me and the kids when we were in New Orleans getting hyberbaric oxygen treatment for Savannah when she was 4 months old.This is the urn that we chose for Savannah’s cremated remains. We had her photo engraved on it. This photo was taken the day before she passed away.We had a huge out-pour of cards given to us. We were completely blessed by this, as many of them were filled with monetary gifts. We received just enough so that we didn’t have to come out of pocket at all for her services. What amazingly generous friends we have!This is a tear-jar that was given to us.This engraved piano actually took us by surprise. We were truly touched by the thoughtfulness that went into this gift! It is a music box as well!
Thank you so much to all of our dear friends, family and clients who sent cards, flowers, potted plants, and other gifts! We are blessed knowing how loved we are and how our little girl touched so many lives.
Thank you to all of you who stood up to give eulogies and personally came up to us to deliver your condolences. It meant so much to us!
