Happy last Friday of August, Cakies! Normally we’d be pretty bummed that summer is on its way out, buuuut then we saw this rustic golden hour wedding shoot Chelsea Porter designed in the fields of Ohio. And this pretty floral circle backdrop? Just one of the romantic details the team below whipped up for this summery scene KariMe Photography documented:
Hi, most heavenly lighting! Keep it comin’…
Eco Flora Design didn’t stop at the ceremony arch. This anemone + rose bouquet is just as lovely, isn’t it?
Chelsea explains, We wanted something that would be different then the typical wedding day and would stretch us as creatives… All the details fit together perfectly, from the name cards, to the greenery, candles, the cheese and wine tray, flowy dresses, tree swing and the sweet couple. This shoot was exactly what we had hoped for to bring that intimate whimsical shoot to life.
Pretty smitten with these menus by inkwell and co, if we do say so ourselves.
Guys, if you’re looking to create something like this, opt for a color palette of ivory, blush, pewter, and lots of greens! Thanks to everyone below for sharing…

Save The Date Cards are a great way to let your guests know that there’s a wedding being planned. And they are especially considerate to send in order to notify in advance those guests whom you really want to attend your wedding who will be traveling long distances or may have to make special work arrangements. Since Save The Date cards have only been in use since the 1990s, there really are no particular rules of etiquette for their use. So you’re free to do whatever you like with them. Go ahead! Express yourself! And don’t worry about being all prim and proper and formal….unless you really want to, that is. This guide features fun and creative Save The Date Ideas that will hopefully lead you in the right direction while planning your wedding. Whatever you end up creating, just make sure that you have fun and let your personalities shine through!Reblogged 5 days ago from www.amazon.com
There are always a lot of questions in the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook group about getting married in Vegas – how to do it, if its legal when you’re not from the US, recommendations for suppliers that will do a good job… So I thought a post going through all the ins and outs of the process would be helpful.
In the interests of keeping things simple, I’m going to write this in a Q&A format. If you still have questions after reading this article, or you have any of your own advice or recommendations, feel free to pop them in the comments!
Do you have to be a US resident to get married in Vegas?
No, and other than book your chapel there really isn’t anything else you have to do in advance either. You can go and get your marriage licence as soon as you step off the plane and then get married straight away if you want to! Your marriage will be recognised back home in the UK (and pretty much everywhere else in the world).
How do I get a marriage licence?
When you arrive, you and your partner will need to go to the Marriage Bureau of Las Vegas (located at 201 E. Clark Ave. Las Vegas, NV 89101). You can fill in an application form online to save time once you get to there. The office is open from 8am to midnight 365 days of the year and a license costs $77.
You will need to bring your passports as proof of identity (at least one form of ID is required but I’d suggest bringing two just in case, a drivers license or birth certificate would be fine). If you are divorced, you will also need to know the exact date and city of the divorce. A copy of the divorce decree is not required.
You must be 18 to be married in Vegas however if you are 16 or 17 you can get married if a parent or guardian gives consent in person at the time of application.
There is no waiting period for the license to be granted so as soon as you have it in hand you can head to a chapel and get hitched! The licence is valid for 60 days.
How do I know where to get married?
There are so many chapels in Vegas and a spot of Googling should set you right. You can also see all the Vegas weddings we’ve featured on Rock n Roll Bride here! I’ve listed some of the most fun chapels at the end of this post.
I’d suggest booking your chapel before you leave the UK to make sure you get the date and time you want.
How long does the wedding ceremony last?
Usually around 15-30 minutes but it depends on the chapel.
Do we have to get married in a chapel?
No! The great thing about getting married in the US is that unlike the UK it’s the minister that’s licensed to perform the ceremony, not the physical location (in the UK both need to be) In America you can legally be married ANYWHERE you like! Some popular Vegas spots are the Neon Graveyard, Nelson Ghost Town and random spots in the desert..! You can really use your imagination – fun!
Will my marriage be legal in the UK?
Yes! You won’t need to go to the register office when you get back to the UK. The marriage certificate that you’re issued in Vegas will be all the proof you need to show that you are married.
When do I get my marriage certificate?
The minister has up to ten days to register your marriage. You can then get a copy of your marriage certificate for $10 from the Clark County Recorder. You can either pick it up in person, or have it sent by post if you’re heading home.
Is there anything else we need to do when we get back to the UK?
This only really applies if you’re changing your name (either by taking your partner’s, double-barrelling or making up a brand new surname). You are legally entitled to change your surname to the one that appears on the marriage certificate. There are no extra fees like there would be if you decided to change your name by deed poll.
You will need to send your marriage certificate along with a cover letter to any organisation who has an interest in your identity, explaining that you now want to be referred to by your new name. Some places will accept a photocopy of the certificate, but the ones that need the real thing (Passport office and DVLA) should send it back to you if you include a stamped and addressed envelope. I’d suggest checking with them before you send it off though! If you are worried about sending off an original, you can pay extra for multiple marriage certificates.
The people that will need to know of any name change include:
Your landlord or mortgage company
Any credit card companies
Utility services such as gas, water, electricity
Your local authority (for council tax and register of electors)
The police (if you have any criminal actions against you)
Passport Office (if you choose to apply for a new passport right away)
Any breakdown organisations
Telephone/ Internet provider
TV license office
If I’m changing my name, how do I fly home? Will my name legally now be different to the one on my passport?
Even if you plan to change your name, you can continue using your passport in your maiden name until it expires. You just need to make sure your flights are booked in the same name as the one that appear on your passport. I got married in 2008 and I travelled under my maiden name until my passport expired this year (to save the fees involved in getting issued a new one!)
If we are already married can we renew our vows in Vegas?
Yes but it will be a renewal of vows service. You will not need a marriage licence or be issued with a marriage certificate for this. You may be asked for a copy of your marriage certificate by some chapels before they will carry out a renewal of vows service so check with them before you fly out.
Is gay marriage legal in Vegas?
Yes! Same sex marriage has been legally recognised in the state of Nevada since 9th October 2014. Woohoo!
Are their any Vegas suppliers you recommend?
Here’s a list of some of the wedding suppliers we’ve previously featured on Rock n Roll Bride:
There are chapels everywhere (and all the big hotels have them too) but these are some of my favourites!
These guys are based in Vegas but remember most photographers, wherever they are located, will happily travel for weddings!
If you’re planning a Vegas wedding, elopement or vow renewal, I hope you have the most amazing time!

From New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes The Wedding Shop.
Two women separated by decades. Both set out to help others find their dreams when their own have crumbled.
It’s the early 1930s, but Cora Scott is walking in stride as a career woman ?after having inherited her great aunt’s wedding shop in Heart’s Bend, Tennessee, where brides come from as far away as Birmingham to experience her famed bridal treatment. Meanwhile, Cora is counting down the days until her own true love returns from the river to make her his bride. But days turn into months and months to years. All the while, Birch Good continues to woo Cora and try to show her that while he is solid and dependable, he can sweep her off her feet.
?More than eighty years later, former ?Air Force Captain Haley Morgan has returned home to Heart’s Bend after finishing her commitment to military service. After the devastating death of her best friend, Tammy, and discovering the truth about the man she loved, Haley is searching for her place in life.
When Haley decides to reopen the romantic but abandoned wedding shop where she and Tammy played and dreamed as children, she begins a journey of courage, mystery, and love.
As Cora’s and ?Haley’s stories intertwine through time in the shadow of the beloved wedding shop, they both discover the power of their own dreams and the magic of everyday love.Reblogged 6 days ago from www.amazon.com
