Las Vegas Wedding with Houstonian Bride, English Groom and French Proposal, by Ama Photography & Cinema

Houston-raised Eva met Leeds, U.K.-based Phil at a fish fry in the Bahamas, where she was on vacation and he was on a contract diving project. And that’s just the beginning of their international love story. While rock climbing together in southern France’s Pyrenees Mountains, Phil surprised Eva with a Champagne picnic—and a Jimi-Hendrix-accompanied proposal. Not long after, the pair joined 28 friends and close family members in Las Vegas, where they said their lifelong vows—the bride’s daughter escorting her down the aisle, much to everyone’s joy—and celebrated in intimate style at the retro-chic Barrymore. Evocative photos from Ama Photography & Cinema speak to the warmth and elegance of the occasion—one that will be forever cherished by Eva and Phil. Cheers!

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!

Las Vegas Engagement Shoot by Nhan Nguyen Photography

Megan and Spencer met at a Las Vegas nightclub, fell in love exploring the Las Vegas area’s outdoor splendors, and, when they each realized they’d found “the one,” and decided to make things official, it was to Las Vegas that they returned to document their engagement. For their amazing outdoor shoot, they tapped the talents of Houston photographer Nhan Nguyen, who’d previously photographed the wedding of Megan’s twin sister Shannon–and happens to be the official photographer of the recent I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta, we might add. Over the course of two days, Nhan shot the happy couple in a series of dizzyingly beautiful locations, including Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire State Park. We love how these photos capture both the intimacy and romance of true love, and the sense of wonder at being together, alone, in place of awesome grandeur. Know what else we love? That Megan and Spencer’s quintessential Las Vegas courtship did NOT include quickie nuptials, a drive-by chapel or an Elvis impersonator. Instead, the couple is set to wed this spring in a Houston church ceremony followed by a splendid reception at Hotel ZaZa. Congratulations to them both, and big thanks to Nhan Nguyen Photography for some truly magnificent photography.
