I had the pleasure of meeting Montoya & Phil during a trip to Las Vegas to tour venues and talk about their day. On the trip with them were Phil’s daughter and Montoya’s daughter who both share the same name. Leilah and Layla – how adorable is that! They wanted their wedding day to focus on faith, family and friends. (more…)

They decided to host their wedding back home and bring their friends and family together to watch them say “I do” at the Springs Preserve, an eco-friendly museum and garden venue just off of the Vegas Strip. After a sentimental first look and some portraits in the cactus alley, they said their vows at the botanical garden arboretum. During the ceremony, Anna + Marc rang a bell together – an Irish tradition which is supposed to bring the bride and groom good luck.
