Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito introduces Melisa & Pedro's Wedding at Mandarin Oriental. 

Melissa and Pedro were married in a beautiful, dramatic wedding at The Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas.  Melissa, a meeting planner who travel South America each month producing conferences and Pedro, a doctor, would be hosting an international guest list of friends and family, and really wanted to treat them to something special.  Given the fact that Melissa has seen just about a bit of everything, we really worked hard to create a unique wedding that spoke to her.  

As a meeting planner, Melissa deeply understood the behind the scenes operational points, which made things like explaining timelines and menus really easy.  As a bride, she wanted the chance to play with a lot of the beautiful rental pieces and textures that would often times be overkill in a corporate setting.  Having already settled on blue bridesmaids dresses, we wanted a color palette that would allow the girls to pop, but not clash.  The couple, true romantics, fell in love with the ivory and pink palette we presented to them.  For a touch of drama, we added gorgeous linens and chairs in gold and black.  The deep contrast and evolving textures made the room interesting and exciting, and the candlelight and sequence brought the room to life.

Melissa made her entrance in a custom P'Nina Tornai wedding gold with a hand stitched lace bolero, while Pedro looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo.  The two shared pointing moments during their Catholic mass before hosting a 200 person dinner, followed by a dance party with blinking lights and neon wands.  

The cake from the pastry team at The Mandarin Oriental was a masterpiece, as always.  Each layer was a different flavor, and the entire cake was heavily decorated to pull in various elements from the couple's decor.

Melissa and Pedro were the last to leave the dance floor, soaking up each moment with their family and friends.  Watching them surrounded by all the people they love the most was incredible, and I am just so happy for them!

Congratulations, Melissa and Pedro!  Thank you for choosing me and for allowing to be a part of your day and lives!

Always...
