When this southern couple, Meri and Mitchell, decided to elope, they decided Las Vegas was the place. But the Vegas wedding chapels weren’t appealing to them, when they searched for ideas. We knew from the moment we spoke with Meri, that she had found her perfect day with us at Valley of Fire!
With their smooth southern accents, Meri and Mitchell won us over with their sheer sweetness. Meri chose the perfect color palette for October. The crisp dark reds, pinks, and greens really popped against her art deco, beaded, wedding dress. Mitchell complimented his bride in the perfect eggplant shade suit. What a picture perfect couple!
Under their tee-pee arch, Mitchell and Meri declared their love for one another in front of a few loved ones, making the moment extra special. Meri with her shining personality had fun vows that included places and phrases that played a special part in their relationship. Only Mitchell could truly understand what she had written for him, as it should be. Mitchell, the perfect compliment to the spunky Meri was ever the southern gentleman, bringing Meri to tears with is heartfelt and loving words. Officiant Judy Irving from Wedding Vows Las Vegas, proceeded the couple through the beautiful ceremony.
Elopements in Las Vegas are known for being quick and possibly cheesy. It’s always wonderful when you can escape the city and later present family and friends with beautiful photos of your elopement with us.
