Angela is a friend of mine, so when she asked me to photograph her wedding, I was thrilled. She and Darren are both professional and extremely successful in their careers, and also love to have fun together. They also have a really interesting background story. They knew each other as teenagers growing up in Guam, and reconnected years later while Angela was living in Las Vegas and Darren was stationed in the middle east. Darren finally returned from his tour and while visiting family in California, headed to Vegas to visit Ang. They knew there was an instant connection and he ended up staying in Vegas. The rest is history…
Their wedding was at the absolutely gorgeous Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort. This is one of the city’s best venues, and one of the coolest parts about getting married at Lake Las Vegas is that after your reception, the guests can all head to one of the bars at the Montelago Village (if your wedding is at night) or the pool at the resort (if the wedding is during the day). The Westin’s suites are unbelievable and their staff is friendly and accommodating. Angela and Darren’s wedding was a morning event, followed by brunch, mimosas, tearful speeches and dancing at the Marssa restaurant inside the hotel. Their friends and family partied all afternoon, then hit the pool for some relaxation. It was a wonderful, meaningful and FUN wedding day.
These two really are each other’s ideal match and I wish them all the happiness in the world. Congrats Darren + Angela!
