Las Vegas weddings are either absolutely amazing or a complete disaster. I've got to say Markheia and LeAnthony did a beautiful job with each little piece of the puzzle that created their wedding day. From the smallest details, like the engraving on her Tiffany & Co. bracelet (a gift from LeAnthony), all the way to the ease of transportation getting through Vegas. Driving in Vegas is truly one of my least favorite things to do in this world. I met Markheia and her girls at Vdara hotel, a new addition to the more well-known Aria hotel, just as she was getting prepped for hair & makeup. LeAnthony was on the other side of the hotel about 10 levels away. Definitely didn't want any chances of seeing a peek of him seeing his beautiful bride before they walked down the aisle! After she was dressed and dolled up, LeAnthony put on his blindfold, as per request of Markheia, and we captured a few moments of them together before we left to The Chapel of Flowers for their short, but very sweet ceremony.
The Nevada heat was kicking at 111 degree's and climbing, but the newlyweds carried on, calm & collected. Now it was time to relax. The limo took us to Caesar's Palace, where we walked all through the Forum Shops, past the Casino, until we arrived at their reception location, Planet Hollywood. As I mentioned, the details were well put together, and the menu choices made my mouth water just reading them. Everyone placed their orders while I sneaked away with LeAnthony & Markheia. We toured Caesar's Palace, and made our way outside. A big atmosphere change. Thousands of people walking, performing, and congratulating the couple.
All in all, it was a wonderful wedding to be apart of, and I'm so thankful LeAnthony & Markheia hired me to photograph their Las Vegas, Nevada Destination Wedding. To see their engagement photo session in Nashville, Tennessee, they can be found at http://bit.ly/1JxRHoK.
