When you think of running off to Vegas to get married, all kinds of crazy wedding venues pop up in your mind, right? Elvis, Pink Cadillacs, neon wedding chapels, and just plain craziness! But the main thing about running off to Vegas to get married is that it is PRETTY DANG EASY to do! And if you are not into the kitschy, well, there is also the elegant, simple, and amazingly unreal beautiful Valley of Fire for your destination wedding. This is the most beautiful, serene, quiet, soul-feeding place to get married among fiery cliffs, red rocks, with desert sand to sink your toes into, and breezes to ruffle your hair.

If I had a wish, it would be to have every year-end with a couple just like Eric and Raegan. Words really can’t explain how happy they were to be getting married. When I think of the word elope, this awesome couple comes to my mind. The word happy just seems a little underwhelming compared to what was going with these two. I wish you could have been there with us to see it.

Try the words; ecstatic, elated, overjoyed, so much in love that the air around us was dancing with joy. Did I just write that? But it was SO true. This couple made my heart sing with happy. I don’t think there was a minute that wasn’t filled with smiling, laughing, and simply enjoying the moment. These two loved each other so much, nothing else mattered. They let nothing get in the way of their happiness. It was a choice they had made in their relationship. Eric and Raegan, it was a gift being at your elopement. I couldn’t ask for a better way to end this particularly tough year. May we add all our love to yours, with wishes for a long and happy life together. From all of us here at Cactus and Lace Weddings, live long and prosper.
