This Houston couple and I lucked out! While I was transitioning between Texas and Las Vegas, I was able to shoot their wedding when I happened to be going back to finish off my remaining sessions for 2015. Torey told me all about their Houston destination wedding to Vegas they had planned at the Wedgewood Wedding and Events Center at Stallion Mountain. I couldn’t believe Laura was super busy juggling law school all while planning a wedding, but it all came together beautifully for their day! We met in Houston to go over all of the details and get to know them a bit better before their trip.
After dealing with some ornery golfers on the course, Laura and Torey did their first look and took some pictures before the ceremony. Also, maybe a groomsman forgot his suit at the hotel, but I think I’d blame Vegas for that. Things got shuffled around but their pictures after the ceremony with the pink sky turned out perfect. I have to say, the champagne colored wedding gown that Laura wore was amazing. It had a classic look to it and I’m a huge fan of the color options of gowns these days. I also loved how each of her bridesmaids had picked out a different gold pencil skirt to go with their dark or light purple tops.
The reception was a blast with tons of dancing with a hilarious group of friends and family that made it out all the way from Texas to celebrate their friend’s marriage. I was also glad to have Ashley Pierce Callighan by my side as a second shooter and wrangler!
Here’s some of my favorites from the day…
