01Jul Trump Las Vegas: Michael & Katie
It’s not too often that the groom’s mother is responsible for planning a destination Las Vegas wedding for her son. I got this unique opportunity when groom, Michael’s mom, Wendy, who lives in Australia reached out to me in January to put together a beautiful wedding at the Trump International Las Vegas. Wendy did some internet research and like many of clients have told me, the Sight & Sound Events name kept coming up. Planning a destination wedding can be challenging because your not able to take meetings or stop by to meet your vendors whenever you want. So imagine how hard it is to plan a Vegas wedding when you live in Australia. Trust is key in finding a vendor. This whole wedding was produced via exchanged emails and a final meeting with the newlyweds a week before the wedding.
The wedding day started with Sight & Sound photographer, Rafael, taking pre-ceremony photos of both Michael and Katie in their suites. A harpist was brought in to play the ceremony and then the cocktail hour. The ceremony took place in the Trump’s luxurious Empire Penthouse Suite where Michael & Katie exchanged their vows in front of 40 of their closest family and friends. After the ceremony guests sipped cocktails into the Soho Penthouse suite next door. Photographer, Rafael took the newlyweds around the Trump property for formals. The Empire Penthouse suite was transformed during cocktail hour into a ballroom with dance floor and dinner tables. Sight & Sound DJ Eric was master of ceremonies and DJ for the 4 hour reception.
These are our favorite photos from the wedding.
Here’s what Michael & Katie had to say about their special day,
Our wedding couldn’t have been more perfect. The entire Sight & Sound team was a pleasure to work with. Jodi you handled everything for us like a true professional does. DJ Eric the perfect host for our celebration. The music was just right and the harpist added elegance to our celebration. Photographer Rafael was amazing he made us so comfortable.
