Lake Las Vegas Wedding: Kate and Justin

Oh how I love a couple who is willing to step outside the box to make what seems a logistical nightmare a dream come true! Kate had a vision and just a few months to pull it off. Here is where I step in to pull favors, puzzle the pieces together and hire vendors who will go above and beyond to create an unbelievable experience for Kate and Justin’s guests. The day began at the dock where guests were invited to meet. Guests had no idea that they would be enjoying light refreshments on a darling Duffy Boat in Lake Las Vegas. Personalized gift bags filled with ceremony goodies such as rose petals, ribbon wands and blow horns told each guest which boat they’d be boarding. Boat captains greeted their guests and once everyone was seated, we were off.

After a relaxing 15 minute boat ride along the beautiful Lake Las Vegas, guests spotted Kate and Justin in the near distance waving from a small dock. Guests cheered and hollered in anticipation for the ceremony. The couple with their closest friends and family exchanged their vows on a gorgeous bridge while guests floated below in the Duffy Boats. On cue, all the guests showered Kate and Justin with rose petals, made lots of noice and congratulated the couple as they kissed their first kiss as husband and wife.

Once guests returned, they were invited to a reception hosted at Hilton Lake Las Vegas complete with Kate’s Martini Lounge and Justin’s Cigar Bar. Each lounge included CORT Furnishings and specialty drinks to create a real personalized cocktail hour. In Kate’s Martini Lounge you could find martinis topped with dry ice, luxurious white seating and a hanging crystal chandelier. In Justin’s Cigar Bar, you could find draft beer and scotch, an authentic Cuban cigar roller and leather seating for days. Guests truly enjoyed their time!

Kate and Justin then hosted their guests to a delicious plated meal finished with each guests’ own mini wedding cake served on a vintage dessert plate. Darling! Guests danced the night away to a family favorite band, JLove, who created the most perfect jazz nightclub feel under the stars and bistro lighting. Don’t forget to book a live wedding band for your event, if you want to turn your wedding party into one of the most memorable events of your life. At the end of the night, I couldn’t have thanked my team enough for helping me pull this amazing wedding day off. Love them and love Kate and Justin for trusting my recommendations to ensure the day went smooth. I had a blast with this challenge and I look forward to continuing to create personalized days for all my couples.

Hilton Lake Las Vegas Wedding: Anne & Brandon

We all know that fairytales begin with “once upon a time.”  But this one starts with “Ohmygosh Rissa! I’m so excited!!”  Well…technically it began with an inquiry form on the website, but after an initial email, it was straight to excited exclamations.  This fairytale includes a dream bride, a dream family, a dream design, a dream year spent planning and a dream wedding day.  You might envision a fairytale wedding to be held in a massive ballroom with draping crystals and covered in glitz and glam.  But this isn’t that kind of fairytale.  Anne knew from day 1 she wanted something that felt more natural to who she and Brandon are as a couple.  The venue set the stage for what my fairytale dreams are made of: wooden tables, ivory accents, mixed centerpieces of florals, potted herbs and candles, place settings with menus printed on kraft bags holding fresh baguettes, gold flatware, garlands of greenery, overhead bistro lights, a canoe filled with escort cards, an energetic band and so much more.Anne & Brandon // Andria Lindquist 2016

Anne’s inspiration for the design of the wedding made my heart sing.  She trusted in a team of vendors to make the vision come to life and I know every single one of them adored working with her.  That’s because Anne is kind to her core.  She’s goodness and generosity, she’s positivity and selflessness, she’s appreciative and trusting.  And after meeting her family, it’s easy to see where she gets all of it.  I’ve never worked with a family as inclusive, gracious and friendly.  Or seen a mother of the bride rockin’ on stage with a band with so much class, grace and style!

Anne and Brandon’s love story and wedding day style may not follow much of a fairytale in the traditional sense, but there is one fairytale staple I know they are guaranteed. These two are already 6 months into their ‘happily ever after’ and I know that is just the beginning.  There will be many more mornings spent fishing, more Sundays on the football field, more In-N-Out burgers and more weekends at Lake Las Vegas.  Anne and Brandon’s wedding was special to me for so many reasons, both professional and personal.  It was a highlight of my career to work with them and memories I will treasure forever!
