Traveling from far across the globe to Las Vegas come Helen and Dewi, from Wales.  One of the first things they said as we Skyped was “We love what you do!” Well, that is pretty fun to hear from a couple of true originals! We loved meeting YOU! What a treasured complement!

This couple was a huge blast of fab fun. We loved the energy and absolute cool vibes that came into the desert as they drove up. You know it is going to be a fun wedding when there is true attention to style and details like this couple brought with them. Oh my goodness, let me tell you about it. First of all, our bride was the epitome of glam. To begin, Helen’s contrast of her beautiful skin tones and jet black hair were striking. And set in her hair was an amazing hand made crown! Helen’s lovely crown and amazing beaded feather fan were painstakingly made and were amazing to see. Her dress was a stylist’s dream. And don’t think that Helen was the only show stopper in this amazing duo. Nope, Dewi had some pretty great style touches going on as well. Take a look at his tailored suit, totally dashing, and even on the inside fabric, right down to the fabric pattern inside, we were in epic amazement over the both Helen and Dewi.  And for good measure, Dewi had his hand made shoes tattooed on the backs with “Sin” and “City” after the iconic Las Vegas trademark. These two loved the little details and made sure their wedding reflected all the fun ideas they could come up with. We can’t even describe it with true justice, only the photographs tell the whole story.

We loved the details that the Front Porch flowers added to this day. Helen’s bouquet went above and beyond. She absolutely loved it. Amazing work by all of the team there at the Front Porch! Spectacular and right up to speed.

This couple wanted to do it all. Including adding the Neon Museum; plus add a delicious wood fired hand thrown sourdough artisan pizza from Alex White of Yukon Pizza to the mix! Holy Smokes Batman! Could we pack any more adventure into this day! Trust me, I am sure they did after they left, the evening had only just begun!

Dewi and Helen, WE LOVE WHAT YOU DO! May you remember your day with love and happiness, and joy.

All of our love and best wishes from Cactus and Lace Weddings!
