Aria Fireside Lounge Las Vegas Wedding | Antonette + Donnie

Antonette and Donnie’s love story begins during of a blind date gone amazingly well, a Valentines Day floral delivery gone terribly wrong but later made perfect.  It’s a story of two people who compliment one another flawlessly.  It is an unselfish and happy love.  Being around them you can see they are the real deal and we’re so privileged we got to be a part of their wedding day.  The love and respect they have for their family and friends is evident in all they do and helps keep them grounded. Our day with them started as the lovely ladies from Makeup in the 702 were finishing up with Antonette and it was soon time to get into her gorgeous La Sposa wedding gown.  Although we were not able to photograph their ceremony in the Aria Chapel, we met up with them immediately after the ceremony for some group and bride & groom portraits.  We then went up to their suite to photograph an intimate & traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony.  Their reception space was located the Fireside Lounge tucked away behind the Spa at Aria.  The space was perfect for their 30 guests to party and mingle.  The staff from Aria were on point and Antonette did such a great job at organizing and planning her wedding from Canada.  Her chalkboard details were perfect and I especially loved their use of a globe for their guests to sign.

When it came down to their first dance, Antonette and Donnie didn’t go with the traditional slow love song either.  No way!  These two had the sweetest and fun choreographed dance routine ever.  I cannot wait to see the video from the talented Something New Films.

A + D:Thank you so much for having us photograph your day & for treating us like friends and guests at your wedding. It was truly an honor to be there for you. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, love, and swimming with sharks 😉
