The wedding was great. Scenic Las Vegas Weddings sent the limo to pick up me and groom... however the groom decided to ride out to the VoF on the bus we rented from Canyon Coachlines with the wedding guests. There was 6 of us in the limo with lots of room, there was nice cold bottled water provided. We had booked a cooler with ice on the bus so we could put some water in there for our guests. The drive out to the VoF took about an hour. When I arrived there the driver, Dirk, let me know to wait in the limo so the minister could come talk to me. The minister Michael was a really friendly personable man. He let me know what to expect checked with me that name pronounciations were right and what kind of ceremony religious or civil we wanted. The limo was parked around behind the rock formation so that Bryan would not see me when I got out of the limo. Trey Tomsik the photographer and owner of Scenic Las Vegas Weddings gave me a run through of how the ceremony would proceed where to stand etc. (he had all ready run through it with Bryan). He then got set up with his camera and started our music so my bridesmaid could enter then my Dad walked me up to Bryan to give me away. The minister did a really beautiful civil ceremony. Trey took really amazing pictures. The guests then went back to the reception site which was the L Suite at THE Hotel at Mandalay Bay and the wedding party went to the Bellagio fountain to take pictures. It was dark by this time so the pictures in front of the light and water show turned out amazing. We then joined the guests at the reception. The catering was done by Jason's Deli who were super affordable and everyone loved the food. There was plenty of seating and table space in the L Suite. We had bought alcohol at Lee's Discount Liquor so there was plenty to drink. We got our cake from the Retro Bakery and it was gorgeous and delicious, the only problem was it was delivered at the wrong time which I was really clear about when ordering so we had to tip a bellboy to accept delivery of it and deliver it to the suite while we were out in the VoF for the wedding. My flowers were from the Palette and Pam there was great squeezing in my order on 6 days notice. Trey delivered our pictures to us within 2 days so we had them before we came home back to Canada. The VoF was warm but really windy so it wasn't too hot. The wind was a bit difficult at times though. All in all everything turned out great and I'm glad we went with each company that we did. The guests had a fantastic time and Bryan and I have many really great memories and pictures.
The back drop for the ceremony, our first kiss as a married couple.
Sunset at the VoF - it was a little hard to get up onto the rocks in my dress...
