A Vintage Las Vegas Wedding at one of the only historic buildings in the city

Today's real wedding {photographed by The Amberlight Collective}, is one I know you are going to LOVE! The bride and groom, Stephanie and Mark wanted to do something totally non-traditional so their ceremony would be as fun for their guests, as it would be for them. To accomplish this they chose to not do the traditional officiant-lead ceremony. Instead, friends and family took turns telling stories from the past 8 years that Mark & Stephanie have known each other. What fun - I love when couples make the wedding their own my adding such great personal touches.

When you think of Las Vegas, you probably think of lots of lights, right? Well, this Las Vegas Wedding was filled with whimsy and vintage touches, plus amazing history. The wedding was held at the Historic 5th St. School, which is one of the only historic buildings in Las Vegas. It's also the school that Stephanie's mother attended as a child. Stephanie and Mark used the school's courtyard and bistro lights were hung above and throughout the tree branches to make the entire venue feel whimsical as the couple exchanged vows.

The courtyard was decorated with vintage furniture that made for a comfortable environment for the guests to relax in while the ceremony was performed. There were even vintage side tables displayed throughout the courtyard that were adorned with fresh flower arrangements to the perfect color pop.
