The Las Vegas desert makes a great place for romantic elopements. Sweeping vistas, desert breezes, and wild landscapes combine to make a dramatic venue for holding a wedding and/or reception.

But it takes a great wedding company to know how to bring that together! Alex said of us, “Cactus and Lace is amazing!! The team is so easy to work with, meeting them prior and seeing their dynamic and how comfortable they are made it a breeze! When we decided we were doing a reception, they were my first and only choice.” Thanks, Alex for those kind words! We love you too!

Alex and Randy had contacted us to help them throw the biggest party we have held yet. And we were so glad to help out our friends. We have known these two for while, Alex was a camel wrangler for Camel Safari, a sanctuary for all kinds of animals, including camels. Originally, Alex and Randy had met on a pig farm of all places! After two weeks, they both received job offers at the same place in another state, so they both picked up and moved across the country and have been together ever since. They both work with lots of animals in a big way, and Alex is studying for a Ph.D. in that field.

Alex says Randy has been her moral support since they met. He has saved her life repeatedly, pulling her out of harm’s way working with the large camels.

We loved Alex’s short and sassy calf-length dress; those cute fringe boots made the whole outfit completely perfect. She was darling, and Randy looked pretty dang good himself.

Alex and Randy had been married at Camel Safari the year before in a very small ceremony of just close family and a few friends. But CoVid was now receding and it was time for a grand shindig for this amazing, totally in love couple. We worked with Alex’s mom who pulled out all the stops to put on a party to end all parties.

With an amazing eye-catching charcuterie, alcohol bar, camel cookies, churro cupcakes, and a DJ as well, this micro party had all the elements of a large wedding, just compacted some, and held in the vast desert that this couple loves so much.

Alex and Randy, congratulations! We are so proud of you both, and wish you the very happiest years ahead!
