In honor of our 2 year wedding anniversary. . . I'm gonna share a little about our Vegas wedding 02/13/16!
SO this is not a furniture related post - don't continue reading if you hate really fun stuff.
We were planning a trip to Vegas with 4 of our closest friends & decided why not get married while we're there?! We were engaged and the thought of planning a big traditional wedding scared the crap out of me. After talking to our families about it and making sure they were good with it - it was a GO!
When we got to Vegas we explored. . .
We saw some really pretty stuff - I loved going through all the hotels and seeing the extravagant decor (I think everything was decorated for the Year of the Monkey while we were there). Chewy was walking around! We went on a really HUGE Ferris wheel (The High Roller) and saw the skyline, went to the "old Vegas strip", ate lots of good food - my favorite of which being the breakfast buffet at the MGM! The Marriage License Bureau was amazing - we were in and out SO FAST.
I hired a photographer that I found online before the trip for the day of our wedding ceremony - he was SO nice. He drove us & our wedding party around for a few hours and we hit some really cool places for pictures - including the famous Las Vegas sign, Caesar's Palace, The Four Seasons, The Venetian, and more! The BEST part of all this - we find out after the fact that this photographer was totally sneaking us into everywhere. Apparently we weren't allowed to be a bunch of places that we were set up and posing in. He even parked in the back of a few places. We assumed it was more of a VIP thing - like he knew what he was doing - NO - he was sneaking. FANTASTIC.
How cute! We probably weren't supposed to be posing at these spots either. . . LOVE IT!
AND here we are! The actual wedding ceremony at Graceland Wedding Chapel. It was so fun and easy - I was walked down the aisle by The King, ELVIS (he was a really good Elvis too)! The ceremony was surprisingly serious which we really did appreciate - especially having it recorded and able to look back at. We went to eat a fancy dinner at In-N-Out right after since we don't have those on the east coast. Everyone was wondering what the heck was going on with us being there all dressed up. It was great - and delicious.
It was such a good time and we have so many great memories from the trip. We had a reception for family and close friends a little while after we got back from Vegas and it was great too - we got to celebrate 2 times! I can't believe it has been 2 years already. Here's to many more!
