Jessica and Jacob’s wedding had all the elements that made their Vegas wedding spectacular: a great venue, great decor, a great group of guests, great entertainment, and Elvis! It doesn’t get better than that and it was one I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of!
I first met this Chicago-based couple last Spring to photograph their engagement session on the Vegas strip. After a successful shoot and getting to know them, hearing a little about their plans, I knew there was no question they were in store for a great wedding! Besides, they were in the professional hands of Dennis Silknitter, Assistant Catering Director of the Four Seasons Hotel to help plan their day! And if the Four Seasons Hotel wasn’t enough to “wow” their guests, Jessica and Jacob selected Vegas’ most talented decor and floral designer, Randi Garrett of Naakiti Floral to turn the ballroom into a “Hawaiian” paradise, which was the theme of their wedding!
To augment the Hawaiian theme, the couple were married by an Elvis impersonator, from Viva Las Vegas Weddings. He serenaded the wedding party processional and during the ceremony on the hotel’s beautiful Fountain Terrace, singing the classics: “Let It Be Me,” “Hawaiian Wedding Song,” and “Viva Las Vegas.” A poolside cocktail hour followed the ceremony, and then the guests were treated to fantastic entertainment by Las Vegas Hula in the ballroom while being served dinner. The troop provided Hawaiian music, hula dancing, live drumming and managed to get the wedding party and guests to participate with them on the dance floor! Check out some of the crazy antics below! Taking over for the Hula dancers was the Music Solution‘s DJ, Pattrick Labbate, who kept the guests dancing at full energy throughout the remainder of the evening.
