So this gorgeous wedding by Gaby J Photography? Totally looks like it was pulled straight from a magazine. That’s because the whole thing was inspired by a trip E + J made to Italy together. When they came back to Las Vegas, they realized that they didn’t want a big wedding at all—in fact, just two guests felt perfect. And by cutting it down to a small ceremony, they were able to save major $$ and transform Springs Preserve into the Tuscan-inspired elopement they dreamt of all along.
Erin says, After a European vacation and falling in love with Tuscany we began to want to keep the wedding as simple and stress free as possible. We also didn’t want to wait any longer to be husband and wife. We spontaneously called our wedding planner Emily of Weddings & Events by Emily and discussed a possible intimate wedding. We talked about trying to recreate our memorable Tuscan vacation and incorporate our love for Italy in our wedding. She matched us with a great team of professional vendors that were able to bring our vision to life.
It’s not easy to find a venue with lush foliage in Vegas, but Springs Preserve not only made a perfect ceremony spot, but had tons of hidden gems for photo opps, too.
The wedding was intimate and so special to Justin and myself. We were able to have our dream wedding without spending a fortune. We are so grateful for our photographer Gaby J for the beautiful photos from our wedding that we were able to surprise our friends and family with. We knew our loved ones would support our decision to elope and everyone could not have been happier for us.
E + J both work in hospitality and having both bartended, speciality cocktails were a must!
They created a timeless color palette of creams, magentas, greens, and jewel tones to channel the Tuscan feel. See more from their day in our gallery below!
