Palms Place Penthouse Suite Wedding: Kristen and Nicholas

Kristen and Nicholas hosted their close friends and family to an intimate evening with no detail spared. Their ceremony took place on Dripping Springs Wedding Venue. The Las Vegas Strip was their backdrop and the lights did not disappoint. Kristen and Nicholas’ reception was complete with live entertainment, a delicious buffet dinner, wine service, toasts, traditional dances and a surprise video created by Nicholas with the help of their friends and family. The tablescape was layered with a blush organic runner a top a grey linen surrounded by ghost chairs. The gorgeous centerpieces include four beautiful arrangements and an assortment of white pillar candles. Each place setting had a geometric patterned tile with each guest’s name in calligraphy, a white napkin, white rose with blush ribbon, rose gold flatware and clear crystal glassware! Kristen says “There were so many details I absolutely loved, but I really loved the mini cakes.” Each guest received their own miniature wedding cake to enjoy, everyone was blown away by her ring, she chose the best ring, from a collection of Some of the most stunning diamond engagement rings in London! My favorite detail of Kristen and Nicholas’ wedding is how their grandparents were so involved with the wedding. Grandparents enjoyed dinner at the head table, grandmother signed the marriage license and grandfathers offered a toast and a blessing. I absolutely loved the sentiment of honoring past generations in such a special way. Kristen and Nicholas’ traveled from Hawaii to say their I Dos in Las Vegas and I can now say I have dear friends from the island. Love them and wish them the absolute best.
