Welcome back to Marci & Mike's Super Luxe Wedding at Bellagio Las Vegas!

When planning their wedding, both Marci and Mike wanted to represent their religions at their interfaith ceremony.  To that end, we were certain to include traditional Jewish aspects, such as the signing of the Ketubah and the Chuppah, with Catholic prayers and rituals such as the unity candle.

We watched from outside as Marci & Mike signed the Ketubah, which is the Jewish marriage agreement, surrounded by family and friends. Wedding Venue: Bellagio Las Vegas.  Photo by www.ronmiller.com.  Las Vegas Wedding Planner: Andrea Eppolito Events.

Once the signing was complete, the family made their way to the Grand Patio, where a team of live musicians played and guests took their seats.  The space, decorated and dressed by Naakiti Floral, was just a dream!  Sandblasted manzanita trees studded with orchids and dripping with crystals made an aisle dotted with rose petals.  The chuppah's top fabric was so light and sheer, it nearly disappeared against the sunlight.  

Often overlooked, live music makes a dramatic and emotionally stirring addition to wedding ceremonies. Wedding Venue: Bellagio Las Vegas.  Location: The Grand Patio.  Music by www.nbpproductions.com.  Photo by www.ronmiller.com.  Las Vegas Wedding Planner: Andrea Eppolito Events.

The bridal party was almost upstaged by the flower girl - Who could not have been more adorable!

Our flower girl was more like a flower fairy, with a feather and rose wand that was a perfect match to her tiered and golden wreath headband.   Wedding Venue: Bellagio Las Vegas.  Location: The Grand Patio.  Flowers & Decor by Naakiti Floral.  Photo by www.ronmiller.com.  Las Vegas Wedding Planner: Andrea Eppolito Events.

But the best moment of the day was when Marci came down the aisle and met her parents.  Just her face...I can't!  It was as if every emotion she had came to life in that moment.  And, on a personal note, I have come to LOVE her mom and dad.  Just super sweet people who love their daughter very much, and adore Mike as well.
