jessi + joe :: married in *fabulous* las vegas, nevada!

it was just last month that my little sister jessi called me full of excitement – she + joe decided to get married! they made the decision swiftly and without hesitation, and booked flights to vegas for a spontaneous, exciting elopement! technically, i supposed they didn’t really elope after all, since about 15 of their family + friends flew out to celebrate the *cutest* couple of all time. and of course i couldn’t wait to document this absolutely fabulous affair!

their only concern was actually getting married to each other – and they left all the details + logistics in my hands. although i’m familiar with vegas and well versed in weddings, planning even a tiny wedding was a new challenge for me. regardless, within a week we had the chapel, the dress, a suit, and plans for a small dinner reception at wolfgang puck’s postrio in the venetian.

aside from seeing my sister marry the man of her dreams, one of the highlights of the weekend was certainly the AMAZING shoot in the neon graveyard the day they flew into town – a fantastic way to capture their love and kick off the festivities! over the next few days we celebrated jessi + joe in true vegas fashion – with unrestricted excitement, love and energy. it was perfect in every way and of course i was so happy to be able to photograph it all for them!

best.wedding.ever.

cheers to jessi + joe! CONGRATS!

*i love you more than anything in the world little sister and i am SO thrilled to finally have a brother!! and for once, what happens in vegas doesn’t just stay in vegas!*

jessi + joe: the neon graveyard.

love in the neon graveyard.

what better way to start a whirlwind wedding weekend in fabulous las vegas than a photo shoot in a surreal neon graveyard?

i was *thrilled* to visit the neon museum and take jessi + joe on a tour of the boneyard for a quick session! i love las vegas and i love spontaneous, confident couples and i honestly couldn’t love anyone more than jessi + joe! jessi is my gorgeous, amazing little sister and it was fantastic to be able to document their love + excitement all weekend!

this session was so crazy – jessi + joe flew in to vegas that morning, i picked them up, ran them downtown to the get their marriage license, dropped them at the venetian where they did a quick change, and then took off to the neon museum for our session! it was a super sunny vegas afternoon, but we had such a good time exploring the old signs and wandering through the iconic debris. we were all bursting with excitement for their wedding (the next day!!) and i am so glad i had the opportunity to shoot such a fantastic couple in this ridiculous location – i can’t wait to return!

enjoy!
