The wedding that we have been waiting for since March of 2020. This wedding was all set to go just days before the Covid shut down. Was heartbreaking for poor Kelsey & Austin, but also for us as we tried to reschedule several other times trying to get this wedding underway, all the while with Kelsey working hard in finishing up nursing school. Finally happened in May of 2022 and really was worth the wait! Everything was wonderful! We could not have asked for better weather and smooth sailing of the day.
Starting with getting ready at the historic Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, we were able to capture a tearful First Look with Kelsey & Austin before they headed out to the Valley of Fire for the ceremony. As always a delicious dinner provided by Yukon Pizza; and SweetSauce offering up a beautiful spread of charcuterie and cocktails too. Hearing the toasts was a treat because the maid of honor, who is Austin’s cousin and Kelsey’s best friend, explained how they met and have been loving each other for 5 years. 2 of those years waiting patiently to be able to get married. We feel so blessed to have been able to see these two finally tie the knot. Such a beautiful couple and such a beautiful day.
