I am a huge believer in being at the right place at the right time and Sarah and Kevin were at the right place at the right time when they met teaching at the same school here in Las Vegas.
Gracie and Andrew, who are both local school teachers here in Las Vegas, had a wedding day filled with love, plenty of personal touches that represent them as a couple, and rain!
John and Katie were married in April at Springs Preserve. Their lovely ceremony was held in the Origen with their cake and champagne cocktail hour taking place nearby. Afterwards, guests headed over to Smith and Wollensky where they dined inside the Wine Room. The room was filled with love, laughter, and an abundance of delicious food. Congratulations again John and Katie! I love John's reaction as he sees Katie in her wedding dress for the first time.

Katie and Ryan were so much fun to work with! They are my only couple to date to book both their ceremony and reception venue without seeing it before hand. They trusted my judgement and had a beautiful ceremony at Springs Preserve inside the Origen and a delicious dinner reception at Joe's Stone Crab. These Air Force loves were surrounded by their closest friends and family and their bridal party had us laughing all night long.

Last year I had the opportunity to participate in the 1st annual Eco-Elegant Bridal Affair at the Springs Preserve. It's the only one of its kind here in Las Vegas - a bridal fair showcasing eco-friendly vendors. I'm not able to participate this year due to scheduling conflicts but I'm so happy that they'll be hosting the 2nd annual Eco-Elegant Bridal Affair this Sunday, May 2nd.
I encourage brides and grooms to stop by and check out the beautiful Springs Preserve as well as meet the wonderful participating eco friendly wedding professionals.
In addition, there will be a silent auction benefiting the American Cancer Society.
