Byanca + Carlos live with their three adorable children in Central California. They wanted to plan a low key, friends-and-family-oriented destination wedding, and decided Vegas was the perfect spot for everyone to let loose and celebrate. They chose the Linq Silver Sky Chapel as their ceremony location because it’s one of the only chapels on the Strip that you can bring your own photographer into.
The two got ready in separate suites at the Linq Hotel – which has newly furnished rooms that are modern, colorful and stylish. Byanca’s gorgeous rose gold ring perfectly coordinated with her Badgley Mischka heels. After her mom helped her get into her dress, I went to the guy’s room and found the cutest moments between the groom Carlos and their son. He helped him with his colorful bow tie, and Carlos donned his blue suit jacket and pink pocket square (I just love it when a groom chooses a little less traditional suit).
After their chapel ceremony, we headed to Downtown Vegas for some portraits against the colorful walls and murals from local artists. These walls are painted by new artists every year during the Life Is Beautiful music festival, and their work is just incredible. You never know what cool backdrop you’ll find in Downtown Vegas. We also headed to the Neon Museum for some vintage Vegas photos with the couple and their kiddos. The museum contains old, rusty, retired casino and hotel signs – the perfect spot to get that classic, quintessential Sin City look.
Byanca + Carlos had the most amazing destination wedding, but they made it classy and family oriented, with a twist of vintage Vegas vibe. Congrats again, California lovebirds!
