Anita and Brian did not have a typical New Years Eve wedding. They eloped in the beautiful Calico Basin within the Red Rock Canyon. The celebrations of the day were echoed in the intricate gold beading on her floor length dress.
How did you two meet?
We met through mutual friends 5 years ago in our hometown of Dublin, Ireland. After being together for a year we decided to pack our bags and head off on an adventure. We move to the other side of the world, to Auckland, New Zealand where we have been living for over 4 years.
Why did you choose this particular venue or location?
We wanted a simple and intimate ceremony with a beautiful backdrop. McKenzi suggested Red Rock as a possible location and once I saw pictures, I was convinced!
What is your vision for your wedding day?
Simple, elegant ceremony!
Have you had a favorite part of the planning process?
The whole process was so easy, thanks to McKenzi’s help and hard work! It was such a relief to have her knowledge and experience and we really loved having her photograph our special day!
Do you have any advice for other couples planning their day?
Follow your heart in terms of what you want to get out of your wedding day. If you’re considering eloping, Vegas is such a great option, and does not have to be cheesy or tacky! We loved the idea of a simple ceremony where we could celebrate the journey that we have been on as a couple, and it couldn’t have worked out any better!
