wendy & wes: wedding

“viva las vegas”

While in Vegas, I had the pleasure of shooting Wendy & Wes’ super stylish and super fun wedding at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay. There was no cheesy drive-thru-chapel, Elvis impersonator or Wayne Newton song playing in the background – just the love & support of 100 family & friends who filled Wendy & Wes’ penthouse suite for this joyous occasion on March 22, 2008.

This was my third time shooting Wendy & Wes and I am always taken back by how perfectly matched these two are. They are blessed with tall genes (something I sure don’t have! =)), share a love of baseball, are incredibly sweet and genuine people, but most evident when meeting Wendy & Wes is this indescribable silliness and happiness they bring out in each other. I was the only witness when they shared their “first look” in their hotel suite and I nearly cried watching how much these two adored one another.

**Thank you Wendy & Wes for not only for letting me capture your special day, but also for proving that somewhere out there is a perfect match for all of us! =) xoxo, Kim Le**

So Wendy & Wes were contractually obligated to use the Mandalay Bay Chapel’s photographer for the ceremony, but I snuck in this shot as a guest =)
