LDS Receptions Made Easy in Las Vegas

I love producing receptions for folks who are having their ceremony in the Temple.  The groups of family and friends that come to celebrate are so friendly and warm.  There is an easiness to the reception that allows you to focus on the couple.  We have our preliminary photos back from Anna and Brian's ring ceremony and reception.  We celebrated with 250 family members and friends for three hours before sending the couple off in style with a spectacular sparkler exit.

Our favorites:

  • Chandelier and canopy lighting above the dance floor
  • Non-alcoholic beverage bar with lemonade, strawberry lemonade and punch
  • Table with cold dessert treats from Rita's with tons of pictures of the couple at this favorite dessert locale
  • Pink, peach and white florals and centerpieces mixed with succulents
  • Live violinist at the ring ceremony 

If you are looking to have a reception for 50 all the way up to 400 people with the ease of a "come as you like" atmosphere, send us a quick note.  We know the best venues in town to accommodate the size and special food setup that will make your planning a "piece of cake".

Thanks to the vendors who helped to make this special day possible.

Tangerine is the Color of Love

Scottie and Carsen's wedding was a dream come to life.  The venue, the Las Vegas Country Club, was decorated with touches of tangerine, silver and white by the talented Naakiti Floral.  Equally amazing was the Wedding Planner, Priscilla Drozd, who is easily the best in the business.  This amazing day was captured by AltF Photography.

It's a Jungle of a Baby Shower

We recently had the opportunity to put our twist on the popular "Jungle Theme" baby shower for our client's first baby.  When we met with the happy mother (and grandmother), we started from scratch with an amazing blue color scheme focusing on monkeys, elephants and giraffes. After researching themes on the web, we put together an inspiration board to share with the client.  The funny thing about inspiration boards - the client can say, "Yes. I want all of that."

Check out how we recreated this inspiration board and brought the jungle to the Las Vegas Country Club.

Our favorites included:
  • Wooden Elephant Favors
  • Blue fabric draped on the ceiling
  • Diaper cake centerpieces
  • Delicious animal cookies and cake pops
  • Giraffe print linen swatches
  • Animal print popcorn boxes
Visit our partners to create your very own jungle theme baby shower.

Great Gatsby? No - Great Courtney and Michael!

If you are looking to do a Gatsby themed affair this year, you have to take a peek at the event Courtney and Michael created for their special day.  I was amazed by all the little touches Courtney was able to put together that really evoked the time period.  Their colors were gold, silver, ivory and touches of navy blue. Sit back and prepare to be amazed!

These groomsmen gifts were so cute.  Each of the twelve gentlemen in the Wedding Party received beautiful cuff links and argyle socks.  There was a special letter just for the groom too!

Photo booth props are a great way to add a DIY touch to your event.  And nothing fits this Great Gatsby theme better then glasses, mustaches and lips on sticks.  Each guest got to take a photo home to remember the day.

We know it is old school but we love this throw back address book bedazzled with glitter.  It was placed at the lobby table and each guest was asked to fill in their information so the Bride and Groom can keep in touch.

Classic metallic colors are always beautiful.  It's the centerpieces that really "lit" up this table.  Each gold or silver tree lit up at night to illuminate the tables.  A unique touch for sure!

No rice here.  Guests were allowed to take rosemary and birdseed to throw after the Bride and Groom were pronounced Mr. and Mrs.

Baby's breath was the perfect simple touch to this elegant ceremony site and metal arch.

The Gourmet Cake Factory really picked up on the architectural elements in the design of this event and delivered a one of a kind cake.

No elegant reception is complete without your very own chandelier!

A photo captured of a few of the beautiful bridesmaids peeking out at the reception.  These stunning nude dresses complete with sparkle were a real show stopper.

Cheers to those who helped make this special day possible!
