Today we bring you a wedding at Reflection Bay at Lake Las Vegas with a Navy groom and a Great Gatsby inspired wedding gown. In reality, the theme came together after Nicole fell in love with her wedding dress.
Nicole & Chris can almost say they were high school sweethearts. Being both from New York, they have known each other for a very long time and were good friends during high school, but it would take years for them to get together again. Chris joined the Navy and is stationed in California, while Nicole went to nursing school in Las Vegas. The future (and technology) brought them back together.
The entire wedding from getting ready to reception happened at Reflection Bay Golf Club. Nicole made sure to have nice sparkly shoes to go with her dress, and her bridesmaids featured rose sequin dresses. All groomsmen were in the military but Kyle, a past groom we photographed and love dearly – him and his adorable wife Olivia, who is Nicole’s sister. We felt so thankful and excited about getting to work with them and their family twice.
Nicole & Chris shared a first look prior to the ceremony. After they tied the knot at the grassy knoll by the lake, we walked around the golf course for some photos. The night continued with a cocktail hour and a reception at their new rotunda room, featuring high ceiling and a soft warm palette. Large arched windows filled the room with light and showcased amazing views of Lake Las Vegas. It was a small and intimate affair with family and close friends. Check out some photos of the day below.
