Taylor + Houston are a laid back, local couple that wanted to have a FUN wedding surrounded by their friends and family. Mission achieved! They held their beautiful Spring wedding at the Silverton Casino Lodge just south of the Las Vegas Strip. I love this country/lodge-themed hotel – throughout the property and rooms they have wood details, country decor, plenty of greenery and the Veil Pavilion even has antler chandeliers hanging! My favorite part of their day, hands down, was their first look. Houston is generally a pretty calm and quiet guy, but when he saw his bride all dressed up, the emotions just welled up and overflowed. I seriously love it when my couples get a chance to do a first look – it lets you run with those emotions and have a quiet alone moment with your other half… before the party, the portraits, the dancing, the hugging, the kissing, the vowing, the smiling, the posing and the zillion other things that happen on a wedding day. It also really helps your photographer by giving them extra time for portraits – a “no rushing” wedding day makes for a perfect wedding day! I’m on a mission to help my brides feel no stress on their big day, haha.
The couple chose to have their ceremony in the long walkway right outside the Veil Pavilion, which was a beautiful little hideaway from the hustle and bustle of the nearby casino and tourists. After the ceremony, we did some portraits of the newlyweds with these cool, dramatic doors in that same walkway. Their reception was filled with cute details that fit their country theme – horseshoe centerpieces and all. It was an amazing night and a fabulous event, and I know Taylor and Houston are going to the best parents to their upcoming arrival… a little corgi puppy! 😉 Can’t wait to photograph you guys again this fall for your family portraits! Congrats T+H!
