Courtney and Steve’s electric Las Vegas wedding is the definition of cool. But they didn’t do it alone. From the beginning, they prioritized hiring top-tier vendors—like Junebug planner Ember & Stone Events—that believed in their wild and ethereal vision. And from start to finish, every detail reflected their desired, fun-loving theme.
To kick off their celebration, they exchanged heartfelt vows at Desert Love Land. With breathtaking views of Nevada’s Red Rock Canyon, this cactus nursery channeled their nature-loving side. But, the real party started after the couple—and their vibrant Lively Bloom florals—were transported to their reception space, The Doyle. Welcomed by a surprise Elvis impersonator and a room full of disco balls, this celebration had all the ingredients needed for the ultimate Vegas bash.
From the bride’s epic outfit change to the post-wedding stroll down the strip, Annie Morgan Photography captured every detail that’ll challenge couples to step outside the traditional wedding planning box. Get scrolling.

Creating A Wild Las Vegas Wedding With An Intimate Feel
The intimacy of the ceremony and reception felt like a true reflection of who we are as a couple. The mixing of elements and using non-traditional designs helped create something that felt truly unique. We wanted the day to feel wild and ethereal but with a laid-back vibe. We chose to have a simple ceremony with the desert as our backdrop because feeling connected to the Earth was most important for us throughout the day.
Prioritize Finding A Vendor Like Ember & Stone Events
Our biggest piece of advice is to do the research, especially when it comes to finding a wedding planner. Find someone that’s going to take the time to get to know you as a couple. Someone you can trust every step of the way. Our planner, Ember & Stone Events, made our wedding day seamless without feeling controlled or super scheduled. The amount of hard work, attention to detail, and pure heart they put into our day was unmatched. Niki and Sam were always available, always patient, always listened, and truly were born to do this. Sharing this experience with them is something we will hold close in our hearts forever.
Adding Personality To Their Ceremony Through Music And A Lack Of Wedding Party
There were many ways we added personality to our ceremony. For starters, we decided to not have our wedding party at the altar with us. We wanted to create the illusion it was just the officiant and us. It allowed us to focus on each other and feel the intimacy. We were also very intentional about choosing songs that held meaning for us. Music is a big passion of ours and one of the ways we connect as a couple.
This Couple’s Experience Working With Their Photographer on Their Las Vegas Wedding
Annie Morgan Photography was our first wedding planning choice after solidifying the date. Finding the right photographer and videographer was extremely important for us. And working with Annie on the day was pure magic. She made us feel comfortable and completely ourselves. Shooting felt very natural, like working with a friend. Nothing was forced, and we genuinely had so much fun. We couldn’t recommend her more.
Seeing Their Las Vegas Wedding Vision Come To Life
One of the most memorable moments was walking into our reception space for the first time. After months of planning, finally seeing how the vision had come together was an unmatched moment. To see it all in real life was like a dream literally coming true.
A Surprise Appearance from Elvis Had Guests All Shook Up
One surprise we had was an Elvis impersonator at the cocktail hour. He performed songs and took pictures with our guests. When it was time for the grand entrance, he introduced us as a couple, singing, “I can’t help falling in love with you.” It was a fun way to bring a true flare of Vegas energy into our ceremony.
Ace Wedding Favors
We wanted wedding favors that reflected our wedding theme while also giving people a piece of Vegas to take home. That’s why we chose custom card decks with our initials, wedding date, and location on them.
