When Marie & Isaiah reached out for me to photograph their Elopement, they knew EXACTLY what they wanted to do. Their wildly fun itinerary was perfectly pieced together based on they things they loved most. From kicking things off with a 7-eleven slurpee to ending the night with In-n-Out burgers and fries, every second was well thought out and 100% them. I always encourage my couples to find ways to incorporate the things you love in to your wedding day. It can be cheesy or over the top, SO WHAT. As long as it’s important to you! I wanted to put together this blog post to give couple’s a few ideas for what they can do for their perfect Las Vegas Wedding! While these ideas were unique to M + I, maybe they will spark some inspo!
When Marie told me this was Isaiah’s happy place, I knew we needed to get some fun photos here! She loved the colorful backdrops and this 7 eleven was a little more modern than most. Almost immediately upon their arrival, people were cheering for them as they went inside for their beverage. They grabbed their slurpee, bought a little something to spike it with and our photoshoot began!
A spiked slurpee is the WAY TO GO before a Las Vegas Wedding!
These two decided to have their ceremony at A Little White Wedding Chapel inside the pink cadillac. Before they inquired, I had no idea you could actually have your Wedding ceremony inside the cadillac! While I love a good Las Vegas Elvis Wedding, this was by far my favorite. After the ceremony, we took a few photos outside of the chapel. It was a Saturday, so it was pretty packed which left us with little room to move around. If you are planning to have your Wedding here, I definitely recommend a weekday!

The Velveteen Rabbit is a 5 minute drive from A Little White Wedding Chapel and is the perfect stop for your post ceremony cocktail. These two were drawn to this location not just for the funky and unique cocktails but also for the vintage photo booth. This is the sister photo booth to the one at Sure Thing Chapel. While they typically don’t allow outside photographers take photos, they made an exception for us as long as we kept it to a minimum. Marie + Isaiah love photo booths, so this was a special moment for them. AND they could have some immediate photos to take home.
Crossword puzzles are Marie & Isaiahs jam! They knew this was something they wanted photographed, so they squeezed a quick puzzle in while they were sipping on their cocktails. They face-timed their families to show they had made things official as well. While they would have loved to have their families there, they knew they had their full support. When the time is finally right, they will have their big Wedding.
The Flamingo has some of the best lights on the Las Vegas strip. They are colorful, fun and a must for your perfect Las Vegas Wedding! Marie mentioned she loved bright colors and this spot just so happened to be within walking distance from In-n-Out. Parking is free for the first hour at the Flamingo and a quick walk to the front entrance where you’ll find these beaming bright lights. Cheers from crowds continued as we snapped a few more photos!
A perfect Las Vegas Wedding day would not be complete if you don’t finish it off with In-N-Out. By this time, Marie and Isaiah were so ready for food that they almost forgot I was taking their photos. You can certainly tell they thoroughly enjoyed every bite of those burgers and fries! I love when couple’s can sit back, relax and enjoy parts of their day without feeling the pressure of having a camera around.
I hope you’ve enjoyed walking through what a perfect Las Vegas Wedding day could look like! Getting married in Las Vegas because it is truly the best place to get creative and plan the perfect untraditional Wedding. Make it yours and have fun!
