New Year's Eve is just glamorous!  And when you get to spend it at a wedding the Four Seasons Las Vegas, well....it's even better!

Jami and Fred allowed me to share some of the behind the scenes images with you, and I am just so grateful!  With a color palette of white and grey, this wedding is soft, romantic, and so beautiful.  The Four Seasons put out a masterful four course menu which was served in a hybrid French-Family style manner, and the team from DJ Mike Fox kept guests on the floor literally until 11:45 PM, when we escorted them all to the Presidential Suite where they enjoyed the fire work display.  By far the best view in the city!

Here are just a few iPhone photos that take you behind the scenes - It certainly was a night filled with love and celebration!
 

Always...

The bride and groom asked that the night be a celebration of LOVE, and so we placed it front and center in the space in large, white marquee lights.  It popped beautifully against the golden glow of the candles. Photo by Andrea Eppolito.

Guests were set at long banquet tables dressed in white linens with hundreds of candles at varying heights.  Small, low floral were placed throughout to soften the space, and a cluster of chandelier hung above a white dance floor.  This room was magnificent!  Photo by Andrea Eppolito.

To add dimension and interest, we projected a scrolled pattern along all of the walls.  Photo by Andrea Eppolito.

Everything in the room was done in shades of white and ivory, from the dance floor to the chandeliers, the linens to the florals.  When working with a monochromatic color palette, each item counts.  Not one detail was overlooked in creating this space, and in every corner there was something special for the guests to enjoy. Photo by Andrea Eppolito.

Additionally, each guest found a wrapped box at their place setting which contained a thank you note written by the couple and reproduced in white chocolate.  Orchids were placed, calling attention to the gift. Photo by Andrea Eppolito.

When the time came for the couple's first dance, we took the lights way down low for added romance, which really showcased the chandeliers. Photo by Andrea Eppolito.

I snuck in to grab a photo of the bride and groom cutting the cake, which was inscribed with words from famous love songs and poems, just as the photographer jumped in to grab his.  Photo by Andrea Eppolito.
