Um, properly putting a WHOA on everything this elopement offered is not a proper enough term for my AAAHH on Mel's Dress, the adorable velvet jacket on Neil (Neil's stance) and all of the Elvis shaking, booty breaking dance moves... I am in LOVE with this elopement.
Mel and her uncle were hiding behind the signs (and her excitement was so adorable) before everyone could see her. With a faux aisle and a waiting husband to be alongside a dancing, singing, charismatic Elvis... honestly, swoon.
This day, by far, was a special and most magical elopement for me & I am SOOO honored they chose me to document their ceremony at the Neon Museum. We spent about 4 hours together and toured some Downtown street art, some random corner that looked special (?) and drank champagne before heading back to the Cosmopolitan for more drinks & some festive cheers with just the two of them and me, freaking out on the entire day of how much I loved everything about them.
First off, this day was the most intense I have ever seen our Vegas sun. Every image produced looked almost like a new area of the desert. We hiked a bit (& in her Irregular Choice heels!) to some amazing and STEAMY (hot bc, have you seen them) 117 degree weather. The shadows, the heat, that light... it was a very touchy process inside my ADD overload of attention to detail. I then had to just say 'fuck it'- honestly I can't change the sun I can only bring a cold ice cooler of beer.
Yep, Elvis did his thing and unfortunately reprimanded me for taking photos inside the chapel. Ya know, not cool really, but I obeyed.
Hotdogs & beer, nonchalant change up in plans and it ended up being spot on. Ending it all with the sun over Fremont Street & Atomic Liquor.
I loved this elopement!
