Vegas Baby, Vegas

So a few weeks ago I cyber-bumped into an old friend from college on Facebook. Roxanne and I used to share dorm space at good old Emerson college in Boston circa 1995'ish. She was always a blast to be around and we stirred up quite a bit of trouble as a team. She sent me a message last week letting me know that she'd actually ordered jewelry from the White Aisle website while she was planning her wedding. We'd been writing back and forth a year ago discussing a bracelet, and never knew who the other one was. Well... we're back in touch now, and I have to share with you guys some of her wedding photos.

Roxanne and James got married in Vegas last June. Her photographer, Chelsea Nicole was just 20 years old at the time!! Can you believe it? Check our her website for tons more gorgeous shots. They're also planning to get together in September to do a Trash the Dress session. Roxanne wanted to wait a year to enjoy the clean dress.

In the bride's own words.... "I got to be a guest at my own wedding! My husband works in events, all over the world. He directs shows with 20K attendees, etc. When he directed TV shows, they would do wrap parties - so we decided to have more of a wrap party than a wedding. He's the creative genius behind the whole thing. He came up with doing a color palate rather than say, two colors. He brought home a PMS color chart and made me pick 15 colors.

He had the idea to rent out a night club (we rented out Tabu at the MGM Grand in Vegas) instead of a ball room - so smart, the place was already decorated, lit, ready for sound etc. They even had a program that projects images onto the tables and dance floor (that you can interact with, i.e. turns the image to fire or water when you wave your hand over it), so my husband put together a video of our engagement pics and flowers to project."

"We rented out a huge suite at Planet Hollywood over looking the Bellagio fountains with a foosball table and pool table and had our after party there with a late night taco bar, sushi and pizza and a second DJ. "

Thanks for sharing!
