Vegas isn’t just about the little chapel and quick wedding ceremony. Today Calgarians, Kristen and Todd decided to have all the wedding fixings but at the exciting Palms Casino in Vegas. Captured by Indigo Foto and working with Simply Weddings, they planned a super chic glam affair with rockstar wedding details. I’m totally loving the decor of the outdoor wedding ceremony.
How did you two meet?
We met over 5 years ago. I met this new group of people and Todd was one of those… It took a year of Todd’s persistence but I finally gave in and we went out and the rest is history :)
What was your inspiration behind your overall wedding decor and colour choices? And why did you choose to get married in Vegas?
I wanted something classic, I chose my colors first and based everything off of that. I’m from Calgary Canada and October is the beginning of winter so I wanted colors to reflect this (grey white ivory black) … We ended up going for peachy coral color last minute just to add a pop of color. It was important that if I look at these pictures in 10 years they wouldn’t be outdated… So I guess we shall see if u accomplished that :)
We chose Vegas because we wanted something “fun” and different. We wanted our wedding to be a big party! No sit down dinner, no long ceremony, and no long speeches :) we had everything just a smaller quicker version of everything. Oh and Vegas is a lot warmer then Calgary in October.
What was your favorite moment from your wedding day?
My favorite moments (too hard to pick one) getting ready, you feel like a total rock star getting all pampered and the mix of feelings and emotions is indescribable. And the second was of course was saying I DO!!!
Do you have any advice for other brides/grooms-to-be?
Take time for yourself the day of… With no one else around… The day goes by way too quickly.
