A Halloween Wedding in Vegas!

Colorado Springs photographers destination wedding

I don’t know how many Colorado Springs photographers have had the opportunity to document a Halloween wedding in Las Vegas, but I highly recommend the experience! Ha ha! Vegas can only be described as BONKERS on October 31st!

I have a keen appreciation for kitsch, so when CJ and Brandon asked me to photograph their renewal of vows at the Viva Las Vegas Elvis Chapel in Vegas on Halloween… well let’s just say that was right up my alley! Elvis himself officiated the ceremony, everyone was in costume, including myself; I dressed as Where’s Waldo‘s friend, Wenda. (Insert valuable life lesson learned that day: everyone — and I do mean everyone — yells “THERE’S WALDO!” at you when you wear that shirt.) Even the limo driver was in the Halloween spirit! CJ and Brandon wore the coolest Steampunk outfits I’ve ever seen. CJ even changed into different dresses and accessories throughout the day and evening, and she looked gorgeous in all of them. Best of all, the city of Las Vegas in all its madness provided the most amazing backdrop for this super fun photo assignment. What a blast! Viva Las Vegas, baby!

Even the limo driver was in costume!

“The King” officiated the ceremony, which included serenading us with two songs (“I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” and “Love Me Tender”). He did it with great aplomb. The Elvis Chapel doesn’t allow “real” cameras, so I had to use my cell phone to shoot the ceremony from the pews. That was a first! (And a last!)

The whole family got into the Steampunk spirit.
