Nick and Cheri are amazing people and when they are together the intensity of their connection is so apparent. We love the way they love and we are ecstatic to have had the opportunity to shoot their wedding…in Vegas!!! It really was a very laidback vibe the whole day long even though there were a couple of last minute things, such as the marriage license, that made interesting side-trips in the day…;) An interesting sidenote is that Las Vegas Blvd was actually closed off in front of Excalibur when they returned due to a possible security threat that required a robot and police officers. Crazy stuff. As always, I’ve skipped ahead in the story…
Cheri and her sisters started the day at the salon while Janie and I took the dress out for some shots with the pink elephant before I dropped her with the ladies at Tease Boutique Salon to get some hair and makeup photos. I had a bit of time to kill before meeting Nick and the guys as they got ready, but despite that fact and the easiest imaginable access to a gambling forum, I never lost a penny… When I met up with Nick and his friends it was clear that they were also easygoing, fun-loving guys and the day was sure to be full of jokes and laughs. And it was.
After the last preparations were made, the limo took them to the Rumor for the ceremony and reception. A concise ceremony brought us the brand new Terhunes and then we were off for a couple of photos while their guests enjoyed a few cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. When we returned, Addiction had a great meal waiting for everyone and after a pair of sweet toasts, DJ Z-28 broke out a few dance tunes. Brit and Lori of Simply Weddings and everyone at the Rumor were really great to work with and we really appreciated their awesome spirits:) To cap the evening we got a shot on the median between Rumor and Hard Rock…
On Sunday, since they weren’t leaving for Hawaii until Monday, we took them out to a nifty desert spot that the über-cool Chelsea Nicole shared with us, for a few more shots.
We really had a great experience with this sweet pair and are excited to share some of what we captured with you…
