Las Vegas Wedding with Cocktails, Dancing and…Bowling!

“We were in Las Vegas celebrating my 25th birthday with my family, and what I thought was going to be a regular day turned out completely different. Every time we had been to Las Vegas we always said we wanted to go to the top of the Stratosphere hotel, but it never happened, so this time we were determined to make it happen. I was pumped because I thought it would be hilarious to see him on top of the Stratosphere (he is terrified of heights), plus they have rides on top! When we started to go up the elevator he looked so nervous I started to feel bad, but he was persistent on going all the way to the top. When we got up there we were able to see all of the Las Vegas strip and the beautiful desert. As we were leaning over the edge he starts talking about the future and then mentions something about a hot air balloon, which grabs my attention, and all of a sudden I turn around and he is on one knee with a box in hand.” With a proposal story like that, it’s no wonder Houston couple Candice and Joshua chose to return to the scene of their engagement to make it official. Their Las Vegas celebration at the Palms Casino Resort’s Kingpin Suite is the very picture of vintage Vegas glamour and fun, and we’re so thrilled to have a chance to share it with y’all. Big thanks to Houston’s Adam Nyholt for the fabulous pix of this destination celebration. And congrats to the newlyweds!

Gray and Yellow Sam Houston Hotel Wedding by Adam Nyholt

Some Houston brides want floral abundance and frilly linens. Some want crystals and chandeliers. And some, like Suzanne, want to keep things casual yet chic. “We wanted our wedding to be modern and simple,” she explains. For her Houston wedding to Jason at the historic Sam Houston Hotel’s cool, contemporary Veranda by *17 terrace space, interior designer Suzanne stuck to minimal yellow and gray decor, along with passed heavy hors d’oeuvre and no assigned seats. “We wanted it to be a party! Everyone had a great time celebrating with us, with lots of dancing.” Plus, she adds, “Actually getting Jason to dance was great!” Cheers to the fun-loving couple, and big thanks to photographer Adam Nyholt for the fab photos of this unique and lovely Sam Houston Hotel wedding.

Sultry House of Blues Engagement Shoot by Adam Nyholt Photographer

“The best way to describe Ashley and Dan is to say they have big personalities,” hot Houston photographer Adam Nyholt told us, when we inquired about this amazing engagement shoot. “They both love fashion, and of course have great taste. For their engagement session they wanted a shoot that was unique and very much ‘them.’ I suggested the Foundation Room at House of Blues, not only for it’s dramatic vibe, but also because I knew nobody else has taken engagement portraits there.” Yup, that’s right, HOB’s ultra-exotic, super-sexy private party space was virgin territory for an engagement shoot when Ashley and Dan rocked the joint. We have a feeling it’s going to get a lot more popular, though, once brides-to-be get a look at these gorgeous photos (which also include a handful of lighthearted, romantic shots in picturesque Eleanor Tinsley Park). “During their entire session I encouraged them to relax and be themselves. They immediately warmed up and were kissing, striking dramatic poses and sometimes just being goofy. I loved it!” Nyholt says. So do we, and we hope you do, too.
