Beautiful Winter Wonderland Las Vegas Wedding: Geneanne + Glenn loves to party. They met at a party over 10 years ago and have been partying together ever since. Their favorite time of the year is Christmas, and Glenn actually proposed as they were decorating their Christmas tree. Why Las Vegas? Well that goes back to sentence number one from this post :). Glenn is also a DJ which is why their engagement session was done at one of the clubs that he frequently deejay-ed at one point, The Avalon in Los Angeles.
So what do party people do at their wedding? Just simply drinks, fun, and lots of love. Keeping with the theme of winter wonderland, upon entering their ceremony location in the amazing Cosmopolitan and their reception venue at The Havana Room at the Tropicana, one is transported to a completely different world. The blue lights with hints of warmer tones drape the room and was beautifully done by Javier Valentino events.
Cool things: Aerial performance, Gigantic confetti release, A caricaturist, Great music (of course), and noodles for late night food after dancing! This wedding is a dream.
Special thanks for Jason Tran for second shooting with me.

The unity beer. So many of my clients have had some creative ways of doing unity candles without candles. This one is using a blonde and dark beers, quite a tricky way of doing it so it doesn’t mix before they drink them. Geneanne drank twice, and Glenn drank once. I wonder who parties harder? You be the judge.

In my whole 11 years + of shooting weddings, this is the 2nd time that I have encountered a hanging cake.
Geneanne dancing with her dad – her dad doesn’t really dance, and they only rehearsed once. When asked about what the things that she remembers fondly about the wedding, her fun and easy dance with her dad is up there in ranking.
Glenn’s mom is different. Their dance is more quiet, but emotions definitely run deep.
Boom! The giant confetti blast falls from the ceilings of this amazing venue at Havana Room.
Noodles at the end of the night for to go 🙂
