Thank goodness it’s Wednesday, folks! Monica and I have had a crazy week (which is why you haven’t heard from us much lately on facebook or twitter). Most of my crazy came in the form of my first trip to Las Vegas for a friend’s wedding. If ever there was a crazy place, it’s Las Vegas, am I right? We had so much fun, and loved being with some great, old friends. Sarah, the bride, asked me to take some informal pictures for them throughout the evening of their wedding. Immediately, I told her “I am not a professional photographer”, and I made sure to emphasize this over and over and over again (sorry Sarah!). But I was game and had a lot of fun snapping shots of the happy couple, and thought I would share a few of my favorite pics of the night. Note: All of you photographers out there, please be kind! Feel free to read the quote in bold as many times as you need.
First of all, isn’t she gorgeous? And secondly, I am embarrassingly in love with that sparkly headband…..and the fabulous jewels on her dress.
There’s nothing like pre-wedding nerves and the rollercoaster of emotions you feel in that day.
Since it was a destination wedding, the number of guests was small, but that didn’t matter. We had enough fun for 100 people- especially in the elevators!
I mean, you can’t have a Vegas wedding without a picture of some sort of game (True story: I’m an idiot about gambling and don’t have a clue what that big wheel is!) in the background.
After the ceremony, we hopped in a cab to go to the famous Vegas sign. The groom, whom we affectionately call Chewy, is one of my hubby’s best friends from high school. One of the funniest guys I know, for sure.
Sarah and Chewy, we wish you the best of everything in life! Congratulations.
And just because I love him to pieces, I had to include one of my better half and me at the reception:
So, tell me…what’s your favorite thing about Vegas? Have you ever been to a wedding there?
