Once Upon a Time…
between the mountain ranges and rocky lake beds that comprise our 45th state… (Utah) there lived two young and single kids- Chelsea and Jason. They met through mutual friends, saw each other across a crowded Lake (Powell), shared a beer together and fell in love. They’ve been together for five years since. For the proposal, Jason headed straight into Chelsea’s place of work with a ring in one hand and “the big question” in the other. Her answer of course, was yes and they quickly set off into the planning of their big day. First and foremost, they knew they wanted it to be low-key and no-fuss. So they set the date, same date as their 5 year dating anniversary, and their location was going to be Las Vegas, Nevada. With them they packed the bare essentials- 30 of their closest friends & family, a little luck and a whole lotta love. Their colors were shades from the classics- Ivory, Black, Charcoal, with a dash of red and it all took place within the Mandalay Bay Hotel. The ceremony was held within the Mandalay Bay’s Silver Chapel and was followed by a warm and close-knit reception. After dinner and drinks, everyone danced. It was nothing short of a good time and the love that Chelsea and Jason share was indeed tangible to everyone that surrounded them that day.
Because the bride and groom preferred to see each other privately, before the ceremony (instead of down the aisle) it allowed for a good long portrait session, just the two of them.
So immediately following their “first looks” we headed over to the Cosmopolitan, to explore the decor there. My favorite location was the Chandelier Bar.
Then it was off to the Mandalay Bay Silver Chapel, for the ceremony.
Congratulations Chelsea and Jason (and happy anniversary). Here’s to many years of luck and love!
