Sometimes I fall so head over heels in love with a wedding that I cannot help but share every last detail!  This was one of those times! And so with that...I welcome you to the third and final post featuring photos from Kaitrin and Jason's Bellagio wedding!

A final walkthrough of the Monet Ballroom found that it had been set to perfection!  Gorgeous ivory linens were topped with centerpieces featuring purple roses, hydrangea and candlelight.  A single light focused on each tables added a soft, romantic glow.

Glass bases made it seems as if our purple centerpieces were floating over the tables.

I love the look of one long head table at the front of a wedding reception.

Each place setting featured a beaded gold charger and a custom menu highlighting the night's offerings were tucked inside the napkins.

The bridal party was lined up and about ready to be announced.  We took a final moment to ensure that Kaitrin looked picture perfect!  And that meant we had to tackle the bustling of the dress!

Kaitrin and Jason entered the ballroom with a flurry of excitement!  DJ Jodi Harris from Sight & Sound, otherwise known as the CEO of Fun, welcomed them in and lead them to the dance floor.  They were so utterly romantic and wrapped up with one another - It made the entire room swoon!

Oh, I love how touched the mother of the groom was while watching her son and daughter in law on the dance floor.

Immediately following the first dance, both Kaitrin and Jason lead their mothers to the center of the room and honored them with a dance.

Guests took their seats and watched as the Challa was blessed.  As it was cut and served, Kaitrin and Jason took the time to visit each table and thank them for traveling all the way to Las Vegas for their destination wedding. Personally, I love that they did this!  It was so sweet!

The bride & groom too the time to visit with each guest.   It's so nice to see a couple make the effort to connect with everyone who has traveled so far for their wedding.

Once dinner service began, so did the toasts!  One by one family and friends took to the mic to tell stories about how absolutely amazing these two are.  As we sat and listened one thing became completely clear - These were two very special people who truly love, respect and deserve one another!

The bride, Katirin, has an infection smile and such a wonderful laugh.  She is so easy to love!

After dinner the party erupted into a Hora of epic proportions!  Kaitrin was delighted to be thrust into the air by all of the men, and she and Jason successfully held onto their knotted napkin.

The Hora, a traditional Jewish Dance, involves lifting the bride and groom up on chairs.  Then, they both grab the same napkin and are hoisted by their guests.

While the party raged on, a hand cut "K" painted lavender was passed around the room, serving as a personal guest book and memento which will soon be hung in Kaitrin and Jason's home.  It was personal touches like these that made the wedding so special!

As a unique alternative to the traditional wedding guest book, guests signed a large lavvender monogram which now hangs in Kaitrin & Jason's home.

The evening ended with an absolutely killer rendition of the Harlem Shake, a very yummy wedding cake and a gourmet coffee bar!

The five tiered wedding cake was wrapped in deep purple ribbon and featured sugar roses and tufted fondant.

You know that the wedding is a huge hit when everyone is out on the dancefloor!

I hope you have enjoyed Katirin and Jason's wedding as much as my team and I enjoyed working on it.  These two are so in love and so wonderful - I cannot wait to see what they do together next!

Always...
