Wedding Wednesday: Grisel, Joel & Joe’s Las Vegas

Newlyweds Joel & Grisel

Newlyweds Joel & Grisel

FUN + SPECIAL + LOVE were the 3 words that Chicago couple Grisel and Joel used to describe their Las Vegas wedding on June 21, 2014.  The newlyweds reached out to me 9 months in advance wanting to incorporate a their Latin culture and love for Chicago into their Vegas wedding.  Caesars Palace was the location because was it is centrally located on the Las Vegas strip with a stunning outdoor chapel called ‘Juno Garden’ .  Grisel didn’t want a traditional ballroom setting for her reception and was referred to the Gigi Room at  Joe’s Seafood and Stone Crab in the Forum shop at Caesars Palace.

A few of the guests including bride, Grisel’s parents,  didn’t speak English so to assist with the master of ceremony duties Sight & Sound Events bilingual MC Freddy was brought in to translate and mingle with the guests.   The dinner soundtrack consisted of Latin jazz while the both parent dances were traditional Spanish wedding ballads.  Joel & Grisel personalized Chicago Cubs BOBBLEHEADS were placed on top of the wedding cake to keep with their Chicago roots.

Sight & Sound events photographer Tiffannie was there to capture all the family and romantic shots after the ceremony right into the reception.  To see photos from Grisel and Joel’s wedding and reception, click HERE to view their slide show.
