The bride and groom, Marissa and Geoffrey came out from Texas to elope in Las Vegas and they wanted to do it their own way, incorporating details into their wedding that made their feel day unique and special.
It was important to Marissa and Geoffrey that they incorporate a lot of wild elements into their microwedding. From Marissa's bouquet that was full of pampas grass, feathers, dahlias, and cotton it was a beautiful boho bouquet that was perfect for their free spirited wedding. And of course, Geoffrey got to rent an exotic car to arrive in style!
How he proposed:
Marissa: We went to Lake Travis, TX for my birthday weekend getaway (so I thought). When we arrived, we went for a walk by the lake. I was told later on that this is where he was supposed to propose. When we got back to our AirBnB, we realized we had lost the key on our walk and could not get in. We were looking everywhere frantically! I went to check the lockbox again, just for good measure, and when I turned around, Geoffrey was on one knee. I of course said YES! I thought “losing” the key was all part of the proposal plan but turns out... we had REALLY lost the key. After we had to contact the AirBnB host to get another key, we FaceTimed our family and closest friends to share the news! We ended the evening with a nice dinner and champagne on the lake.
Why they eloped in Vegas:
Marissa: We wanted a small ceremony with a beautiful backdrop but also conveniently located outside of a larger city. We looked in Utah and Colorado but ultimately decided Red Rock Canyon would be the best option for ease of travel, accommodations and nice dining. We didn’t want the stress of vendors and a guest list and just wanted the focus to be on the most important thing, our union! Best decision EVER!
