“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**
I guess what happens in Vegas ends up on my blog! =)Wendy’s gorgeous gown:

Some more details – love the Tiffany blue Wendy & Wes used!
“Going to the chapel and we’re gonna get married…”
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 =)
Wendy & Wes’ suite was converted into the reception site:

These two were fixated on each other all night:
Viva Las Vegas!
