St Thomas More and Dragon Ridge Wedding Henderson- Kristine & Emerson

Posted by Fabio and Adri Photography - No Comments

 

Originally from the Bay Area, Kristine & Emerson left everything behind to move to Las Vegas. A city that gave them not only a new home but also a remarkable wedding they could celebrate with family and friends. From the moment we met, we could feel their positive energy, and it was an instant connection. So, we were excited about their St Thomas More and Dragon Ridge wedding.

The wedding day started at Green Valley Ranch Resort, where preparations took place. Arlene, with Semper-fi Events, did a magnificent job at planning and coordinating all the wedding details, and she also suggested a reveal with dad, and one with Emerson and his mom. And let me tell you, they were so sweet, meaningful and had everyone teary-eyed.

Their ceremony took place at St Thomas More Catholic Church, located in Henderson, only a few minutes from the hotel. The couple incorporated their heritage with a unity candle and a veil and cord ceremony, besides the traditional ring exchange. After they said their “I do’s,” we headed to our final stop: the beautiful grounds at Dragon Ridge Country Club. The day was windy and chilly, but we still managed to get out to the golf course and create some memories for the two of them.

What a fun and upbeat reception it was! The grand entrance was Grand! As the bridal party walked in, the girls had their “Bay Area” caps, and everyone showed off their best moves. When it came to the newlywed’s turn to be introduced, they walked in showcasing their WWE Wrestling championship belts, which had the whole room cheering. DJ Steffon rocked the dance floor with the help of MC Starlene, and little did Kristine know, but she was in for a surprise. Emerson showed us what a real Michael Jackson fan could do on the dance floor. And soon after, his groomsmen joined him for the next song, and we could swear they all danced for a living.

Hold there, there were a couple more surprises for the night. The doors opened and a Baskin Robbins ice cream cart rolled into the room, making sundaes and every one night’s a little sweeter. And finally, the video team, Izzo Pro, suggested a mannequin challenge, and almost every guest was up to try it. All in all, it’s been such a beautiful day with caring and loving people that know how to have fun. Here are a few images from the day.
