Whitney and John’s Eco-Chic Vegas Vows

A destination wedding at a Nevada nature preserve is full of sweet personal details

Whitney and John knew they wanted a destination wedding in Vegas that wouldn’t feel like a typical Vegas wedding at all. So they chose to have both ceremony and reception at the gorgeous Springs Preserve, a 180-acre cultural institution dedicated to sustainability and dotted with environmentally friendly LEED buildings. With a beautiful jewel-toned palette, sophisticated floral design, and tons of personalized details, the look of this wedding is modern, chic, and unforgettable. Talented photographer Chelsea Nicole captured every perfect moment. <!–more–>

Whitney is wearing a Vera Wang wedding dress. For her something blue, she had her cobbler paint the soles of her Stewart Weitzman shoes. The deep cobalt color even matches the beautiful jewel tone palette of the rest of the wedding.

The bride and groom were so excited for their honeymoon in Africa, which would include everything from Ugandan mountain gorillas to beach time in the Maldives, that they named their tables after different destinations on their itinerary.

Whitney loved the different laces of her Vera Wang gown so much that she had them etched in icing on the wedding cake. Each layer of cake featured a different lace, recreated in buttercream.

  1. The great thing about being eco for your wedding is that it can be done on the cheap or for a totally luxe celebration. We feature a variety of green weddings to provide inspiration for brides with different budgets. Thanks all for your comments!

  2. While they might’ve conserved nature some, they sure didn’t conserve any cash. What a beautiful wedding, but WAY out of most environmentalists price range!
