Bridget & Matty booked me for their 9/10/11 wedding date almost a year ago. Originally, they were going to be married at the Crown Uptown theater; however, in June we learned that the Crown Uptown had suddenly closed their doors. With 9/10/11 being such a popular wedding date this year and most venues already reserved, Bridget & Matt made the decision to move their ceremony to a chapel in Las Vegas. Even though the wedding chapel did not allow outside photographers, it was important to Bridget & Matt that I still get to be with them on their wedding day and help document this special day, so lucky me — I still got to go!
I was able to spend a short time documenting Bridget & Matt getting ready before the ceremony, and then I “snuck” a few photos from my seat in the chapel during the ceremony. Afterwards, we all went to Emeril’s Fish House inside the MGM Grand for dinner. (By the way, that place had some DELICIOUS food!) It was close to midnight before we all left the restaurant, and it started to thunderstorm so we didn’t go down the strip and take portraits like we’d originally planned. Instead, Bridget, Matty, and I wandered around inside our hotel (New York, New York) and had a little mini portrait session.
These are just a few of my favorites from their wedding day.
Bridget & Matty ~ Thank you so much for taking me to Vegas with you. I could not be happier for the two of you. You are two of the kindest, most generous, and most awesome people I know. I’m so blessed that we’ve became such dear friends. Love you both!
