The story of Chris and Michelle is a Classic!  Both from Canada, the couple met at the Hard Rock Hotel a few years back. They both were in Vegas at the time to attend the Motley Crue Concert at the Vault.  They actually met each other while each of them (independently) was "stalking" rock star Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue who was just sitting at a slot machine in Hard Rock Hotel's casino. The couple started talking and, suddenly sparks flied! Michelle and Chris hit it off. 

Five years later Michelle and Chris returned to Vegas and to Hard Rock Hotel to get married and seal the deal with a kiss. What a beautiful love story! Congratulations Michelle and Chris!

Makeup/Hair: Perfect Hair and Makeup Vegas

Venue: BG Bistro

Flowers: Desert Rose Florist

Friends and family flew in from Boston to celebrate the Wedding of Elena and Manuel. 

The ceremony took place in a private mansion in Las Vegas. The couple opted for a first look, By tradition Bride's shoe was too big for her foot and she could not get to the venue without shoes. Best man and groomsmen arrived to "pad" the shoe with a few dollars so that the shoe will fit and the bride could walk out to the first look and the ceremony later. How fun and exciting!

Gemma and Darwin first met in Guam where they were living. They have been together for a long time and have a son together. Gemma and Darwin cerebrated their wedding at the Southern Highlands Golf Club in Las Vegas with family, and 70 of their closest friends.

Gemma and the girls first got ready at one of the Club's bungalows where she was staying for the night before the wedding. Darwin and the boys hang out at the club's library. The couple's First Look (also called "the reveal", when the groom sees his bride for the first time before the ceremony) was so emotional for both of them, tears of joy and bliss rolled down Gemma's cheeks, while her bridesmaids peeked from behind a wall. At 6 pm sharp the ceremony began, followed by dinner and dancing. Congratulations!

Nikolay and Irena

Vania Lynd Photography flew to Zurich, Switzerland to photograph this incredible couple celebrate their love and get married. High school  sweethearts Nikolay and Irena lost track of each other after they graduated. 15 years later, Irena found Nikolay on facebook and they were inseperable ever since. Today they seal their love with a kiss and "I do" at the Zurich Stadthous. "I always knew I would marry you!" Irena told Nikolay after the ceremony.

Need I say more...

Gongratulations NIkolay and Irena!

Rachel and Phil

When people hear Fargo, North Dakota, somehow freezing temperatures and snow blizzards come to mind. So it is not a surprise that Rachel and Phil, from Fargo, North Dakota, wouldn't mind cerebrating their wedding day somewhere warm.  What better place for a weekend getaway and to say "I do"  than the Vegas Strip! The couple opted for a Vegas Strip Tour and had pictures taken as they Stopped at the major casinos for a drink. (Ask about Strip Tour Package).

Congratulation Rachel and Phil!

Katie and Juan

Photographer: Vania Lynd

Getting ready location: Juan and katie's home

Ceremony and Reception: The Grove

Katie and Juan belonged to the same church but never actually met until one day, the church organised a ski trip. they both happened to attend.

Says Katie: "We had inadvertently interacted with each other twice in the past six months before that weekend but didn't officially meet and begin talking to each other until the ski trip. Juan was too funny because he was trying to ski while wearing a backpack with camera equipment (Juan likes photography) and a tripod. I hurt myself on the first run, so i offered to help the poor man by holding his equipment so he could ski!"

Melanie and Lou

I've known the couple for over a year now. Did their engagement pictures which were all over the wedding site :)). Melanie looked like a fairy tale princes and Lou was her prince charming. They had a travel/sports theme going on. Blue and purple dominated the decor. The couple's first dance blew everyone away. The did the evolution of dance number and did it so well that everyone is still talking about it. The wedding party was incredibly fun and entertaining! Congratulations Mel and Lou.

Tania and Traian

Here is what I have to say about this wedding. If you ever in your lifetime get a chance to attend an Eastern European Wedding, do it. There is so much culture, tradition and class. Tanya started getting ready at the Penthouse Suite at the Bellagio Hotel while Tryan stayed home with the boys. The ceremony was site at Rhode's Ranch was decorated perfectly and so was the reception venue. Tryan's parents could not make it because they are ill and in Europe so he was accompanied by Tanya's Mom while Tanya was walked down the isle by her Father. Even little Maxy the mini Maltese was in bride's maids attire. After all, dogs are family. The reception, oh it was so wonderful, so much yummy food, so many traditional dances and rituals. The photographs are amazing and everybody is really happy. Congrats to the newlyweds who I heard went to Thailand and the Maldives for their honeymoon.
