Let me just start out by saying Colleen and Ben probably have the coolest lives of anyone I know. They live in France and work on yachts. I was so impressed with them the first time we met, not to mention they are incredibly sweet, in love and photogenic. They had a destination wedding in Las Vegas, since their families are all over North America. However, rather than choosing to get married on the Strip like many destination couples, they had an elegant wedding at Red Rock Country Club. I’ve had a few destination weddings this year with couples that chose to get married at golf course country clubs, and I think it’s a great concept!
Colleen and Ben got ready in the luxurious men’s and women’s lounges at Red Rock Country Club. They have so much space and the bridal party can do hair, makeup and all their preparation right at the club. The wedding ceremony was right before sunset, so we got beautiful glowing light behind the Ben and Colleen as their said their vows. Afterwards, we did some portraits along the golf course, utilizing the course’s waterfalls, lush greenery and the clocktower. At the reception, the first dance was romantic and the speeches were heartwarming. But when the music started and the lights went down, everyone got on the dance floor and had a blast. I love it when all the guests get the party going – Colleen and Ben have some seriously fun friends and family! They are one of those couples that you instantly feel comfortable around and want to be friends with. Colleen and Ben – I hope you treasure your albums and look back on your wedding day with the best memories!
