Las Vegas Weddings

Las Vegas Weddings

Vegas isn't always about Elvis impersonators and public debauchery! It could be the location of your dream wedding.

We've all gone a little Las Vegas mad here at Style - which is pretty fair considering we have an awesome Las Vegas giveaway that we're not allowed to enter. For those that are, it's the perfect place to live it up, over-indulge - and even get married. There are a few things that spring to mind when someone mentions, “Las Vegas Wedding”. The first picture might be this:

However, a Vegas wedding doesn’t always have to be a drunken cliché. Whether you want to elope in style or you’re planning an extravagant destination wedding, Las Vegas has both ends of the spectrum covered.

We’ve compiled an album of Las Vegas wedding inspiration for your viewing pleasure.

The first is an iconic, albeit recent, wedding shoot starring AINSLEY & SEBASTIEN of Sticks and Stones agency. Shot by Sunshine Coast photographer, Janneke Storm, the shoot highlights the couple’s quirky and ultra cool personalities. Donning a sparkling sequin gown complete with converse all stars and pink hair, Ainsley is an unconventional but stunning bride juxtaposed perfectly into the unique Vegas setting. With over 1.1 million hits on Buzzfeed, this wedding encapsulates everything Vegas, including the Elvis Presley celebrant. Despite the tattoos, pink hair and dishevelled grooming, the couple manage to make this cliché Vegas wedding ultra chic and aspirational.

Vegas provides incredible and unique backdrops for more traditional weddings, if that’s more your style. The Neon Museum is a winning location for wedding day photos. The retired neon signage makes for a unique and colourful wedding shoot theme.

The desert also makes for a beautiful location for wedding photography. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is a few kilometres from Las Vegas and offers a backdrop of bright red rocks and clear blue skies.
