When you hear “Las Vegas wedding” you might imagine Elvis and kitschy drive-in chapels, but Kaylin and Garrett’s celebration was anything but. With a palette of gold, white, and black, and totally unexpected entertainment, their celebration is the epitome of Las Vegas glamour, and if you want to wow your guests then you’ll find plenty of inspiration here.
What was the best advice you received as a bride? Make sure to enjoy the day as everything goes by so quickly. I am such a perfectionist and it is hard to sit back and rely on other people but I am so thankful I did.
What advice do you have for other couples in the midst of planning a wedding? Enjoy it and remember that it’s not worth fighting over the little things. Everything will work out as it should.
Kaylin wore her grandmother’s diamond bracelet and costume earrings, and carried a pearl beaded clutch that echoed the beads on her Reem Acra gown.
“We had an outdoor evening ceremony and the flowers and lighting looked stunning.”
Your ceremony in three words. Elegant. Celebration. “Kaylin” (as Garrett describes the wedding).
Who officiated your ceremony? An officiant was part of our wedding package, and he was wonderful and offered great life advice.
What was your ceremony music? We brought in a string quartet.
Prelude: Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheerhan)
Groom’s Entrance: Ain’t that a Kick in the Head (Dean Martin)
Bridal Processional: Wedding March (Richard Wagner)
Recessional: Midnight City (M83)
What were your vows like? Traditional.
“Garrett and I wanted to make our wedding a celebration for everyone and when you really want to celebrate there is no better place than Vegas. The weather was beautiful and all of our guests enjoyed time by the pools, the restaurants, and attending some of the shows. With no set itinerary, our friends and family were able to enjoy themselves and have a vacation as well.”
Is there anything else that helps tell the story of your wedding? It was so amazing to see two years worth of planning come together, and the night was just beautiful. Also, we had so much fun getting ready that day. Since it was an evening wedding we had time to go to the pool then shower and head to hair/makeup. It was such a special week with friends and family.
“The reception was quite non-traditional. Keeping with the celebration theme and the excitement of being in Las Vegas we got creative. For our cocktail entrance we had two golden Glamazon ladies to greet our guests and set the tone for the evening. We had an aerial bartender who poured champagne from the ceiling. The band was a huge hit and the guests were heading to the dance floor before we were finished with dinner. When planning the wedding, we took all the things we liked about other other weddings we’ve attended, and brought to life our vision of making the night a true party.”
What inspired you when you were planning your wedding? We prefer neutral décor and love black and gold. This color scheme, together with all white floral elements, was gorgeous.
What was your favorite moment or part of the reception? My husband was rapping on stage with the lead band singer and the guests were cheering him on. It was such a fun night with so many favorite moments, but this one in particular was priceless.
What type of cake or dessert did you serve? Chocolate with white icing. The cake had large bows with pearl broaches.
Did you have first dance song? Since I have two left feet and Garrett was not into the idea of taking dance lessons, we decided to hire the aerial champagne artist in lieu of having a first dance. When each couple of the bridal party walked in they were announced by the band and greeted with a glass of champagne. We came in last and did a toast. We felt is was unique and exciting. Everyone is still talking about the “champagne lady”.
