The Valley of Fire is a spectacular place to be married. It is one of the best-hidden destination wedding locations near Vegas. Within a short drive, fiery red cliffs, and brown iron stone formations loom above the desert floor casting long shadows in the afternoon, just before sunset. This was the place Amy and Yo chose to be married, just as Fall began in Nevada. They reached out to Cactus and Lace Weddings for help in creating something they would remember with love and joy. One of their special requests was to have a cellist play for their wedding to add beauty and meaning to the location they had chosen. And the show stopper was their small little 3-year-old nephew who gravitated toward Lindsey Stirling our Cellist right away. Reagan, who is a big fan of classical music, requested the song “Spring” by Vivaldi. As Lindsey played, Reagan began to play right along with her with his air violin. Can you say cuteness overload? Reagan also was the ring bearer, and he did his job with 3-year-old dignity and finesse.
Yo was so excited being married to Amy that he said, “I do!” before the officiant could get the question out. That was a cute funny moment for everyone, they loved it. Amy was worth jumping the gun for, dressed in a beautiful gown with ribbon sleeves that moved elegantly with the slightest breeze.
We love to personalize each wedding for our couple, to really make it their own, to remember all the special little details that say it was their day. Amy had a beloved set of grandparents who had passed on that we honored by setting up a mini memorial table to remember them with love. This was so important to Amy and her family and we loved creating this for her.
Amy and Yo, Congratulations!
