My Best Friends Wedding (in Las Vegas!!)

Sarah and I have been friends since we were twelve years old. We have grown together through every corner life has taken us, and I couldn’t be more grateful for our friendship.  When she told me she’d be eloping, my heart sank a little bit. I mean, I am a wedding photographer after all. Since I knew my chances of being a bridesmaid might be slim (she has three sisters!), I had my speech prepared years ago! But when she informed me she’d be eloping in Las Vegas and ‘can I come’, I was elated, I was going to see my best friend marry her love.

I am so glad to have spent the two days with Sarah and Joe in Las Vegas. Their love is sweet, real, and I can’t wait for our friendship to grow even more in this new stage of life.

I wasn’t allowed to photograph the ceremony at the Bellagio chapelso we’ll just have to wait to see what the in-house photographer captured for us (He didn’t appreciate my assistance during the family portraits, hey if uncle is wearing his ear piece and Joe’s jacket is bunched, they need to know!), but here are a few details and moments from the day that I captured.

Again, I can’t express how special is to me to have witnessed your wedding Sarah and Joe.  Sarah, you are my family and I love you.

the ride home…. after six days of rain, this is what the desert gives us…. ahh.

captured with love…

    Maria, it was great meeting you and shraing this experience with you as well. What a great weekend with MeRa and Brian. But I think the best part is the bonding we’ve all done after the workshop, the feeling of togetherness, and knowing we all have this community of women who get it and will lift us up when we need lifting, hold our hand when we need holding, and share and support always. It was and continues to be truly amazing. You are an extremely talented photographer and I am blessed to share this journey with you. ♥xoxo Marcy
