We’ve known Paige for some time and were sad when she moved to D.C., but we were enthralled when she told us that not only was she getting married to Mr. Perfect, but that we’d be photographing her wedding here in Las Vegas and at the stately and gorgeous JW Marriott. They met here in Vegas at the now defunct Hawaiian Tropic, where Matt was a host but don’t let that fool you, the man is an IT wizard. After moving to DC to pursue professional careers, it was certainly wonderful to have them back here in the sun and fun. They love DC (who wouldn’t?), but Vegas will always have a special place in their hearts.

Fantastic up-lighting and stylish marquee letters by the daring Kevin Cordova of LED unplugged, Makeup and hair by the fearless Amelia C and Co, Floral wizardry by none other than Flora Couture and rockin’ beats by Amanda Wallace and T Music Entertainment.

We were very honored to have so many wonderful friends come and celebrate the coming of our first born. Tara with Scheme Events, along with Keri from Canyon Gate Country Club and the lovely Amelia of Amelia C and Co. put together a wonderful affair that involved mustaches and bow ties. Of course, Alicia took it upon herself to sew 30 bow ties, and some very cool cards with instructions on how to tie them (no easy feat) was done up right by Brooke and Micheal Coxen of the always intrepid Paper and Home. Butter cream goodness was on hand by none other than the fabulous people at Retro Bakery and bright florals were from the excellent people at Flora Couture.

We wanted to thank everyone who helped, and who attended, from the bottom of our hearts.

Being part of the wedding industry means we get to work with some really amazing people. When good friends Tara and Gabriel told us they were getting married at The Smith Center and wanted Orange Soda on the scene we couldn’t have been more thrilled. The list of vendors was simply bombproof. It was so wonderful to see friends and family, some from far away and some from our own industry, come together for an evening that could only be described as truly elegant. Cheers to Tara and Gabriel and may this be the beginning of a long and joyous marriage!

This is our most photo happy post ever so please enjoy!

The traditional Aztec ritual from 2500+ years ago that is now Día de los Muertos or the Day of the Dead was originally around the beginning of August. When the strong Catholic influence took over, they moved the ritual to coincide with All Saints Day and All Souls Day. Regardless of how you see it, it’s hard to avoid the history of the event and with that in mind, we set out to make our own version of a living Catrina. The beautiful model is Kate, who owns Pretty Sick Beauty, and always does a killer job with my hair and color extensions.  One day while sitting in her salon chair, we came up with this idea for our photo shoot.  With the uber talented Amelia of Amelia C & Co. and help from the always talented Enchanted Florist we set out to make a pair of opposing but killer images.
