We started early on May 30, 2015… because Dennis and Belinda planned a gorgeous brunch wedding at Four Seasons Las Vegas. In Las Vegas, planning a wedding earlier in the day will usually mean that the heat hasn’t had a chance to rise yet; however, that wasn’t necessarily the case on this specific day. The heat blanketed the city. It radiated heat not only in the air, but it also cooked the concrete beneath your feet. (Insert a funny pun about cold-feet here if you’d like).
In stark contrast to the weather that day was the cool as a cucumber attitude that both the bride and groom exuded. There was not a moment of worry or a fleeting concern from either side of this wedding party as they prepared for the day.
Belinda. There is nothing more that I need to say to you about Belinda except that she is freaking amazing… and she owns insane shoes. Insane.
Oh, wait. So does Dennis. Here is another thing that I am going to tell you about Belinda. She spoils the hell out of everyone she loves. Dennis is obviously at the top of her list because not only did Dennis give Belinda a beautiful Tiffany bracelet, but Belinda knocked Dennis’ socks off by buying him a new ROLEX to wear on his wedding day. Yeah. A freaking Rolex.
This couple decided to do a first look because it worked better with the timeline for their day, and their reactions to seeing one another was one of my favorite moments of the day. The best thing about the Four Seasons in Las Vegas is that they have gorgeous nooks and crannies to shoot every moment of the day, and these balconies are so perfect for a round of gorgeous bride and groom images! Naakiti floral was on hand to create beautiful florals for the bridal party and gorgeous arrangements for the reception, as well! The most amazing part of Belinda & Dennis’s day was that they completely threw away the idea of having a standard wedding timeline. Traditional elements were forgotten, and they completely and unapologetically planned their day exactly the way that they wanted. So, instead of going straight into a reception following their wedding ceremony and brunch they decided that they wanted to rent out a Vegas rooftop, and then treat their guests to a bus tour of the Las Vegas strip!! Which only meant that we got to have a spectacular roof-top photo session… but only after Belinda changed into a STUNNING black sequin number.
Belinda, I love you. And Dennis. I understand how you feel. Belinda & Dennis. You seriously blew my mind with your amazing wedding, but you continue to blow my mind DAILY as I see you travel the world together and capture so many beautiful images of your own!! Thank you so much for allowing me to share part of your memories on your wedding day, and for allowing me to truly call you friends. xo.
