What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…or does it? Not according to Monika and Doug, who began a marriage to last forever in this notorious city. Photography by Denise Burridge Photography.
The pair actually met at a bank, but their seemingly un-romantic beginning was certainly no indicator of the future to come!
They soon moved in together, right after Doug’s second kidney transplant. “We both can attest that we’ve been through so much in those 4 years before our actual engagement and marriage that no force could ever come between us,” shares Monika.
Having both been born in Las Vegas, the area’s M Resort was a perfect place for their Jewish nuptials.
The cream and coral bridal bouquet was dotted with crystals, adding a perfectly subtle sparkle.
The bride’s flowers also featured crystal trimming.
The bridesmaids’ coral gowns featured different styles in the same hue, beautifully matching the flowers.
The men were also coordinated with coral bow ties, boutonnieres, and pocket squares.
Monika’s intricate gown was absolutely beautiful, and set a flawless tone for this elegant affair.
Blue shoes are always a trendy “something blue.”
Jewish Wedding Ceremony
Getting married in the city where they grew up and still live certainly had its benefits – Doug and Monika were flanked with loved ones and support.
Four honored guests served as chuppah holders.
The couple’s Jewish wedding ceremony included many meaningful traditions such as the circling and tallis rituals. Learn more about Jewish Wedding Traditions.
The Ketubah’s tree of life design was beautifully eloquent.
The evening’s modern elegance was perfectly evident in these escort cards.
The centerpieces maintained the space’s simple sophistication, with effortless vases and sweet floral arrangements.
Doug and Monika’s first dance displayed all the love, support, and passion they built their relationship around.
A cardholder doesn’t have to be boring! This birdcage design was a charming alternative.
The cake’s metallic details made it appear to be dripping in silk, and (almost) too luxurious to eat!
This wedding was elegant, romantic, and filled with love. We are so happy to have been able to share it, and wish a lifetime of happiness to Monika and Doug.
