 Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito presents the upscale wedding of Dr. Crane and Dr. Mo inspired by WedLuxe Magazine.

Can I start by saying that I love this couple?  Like, love them hard?!?! 

From the first time we spoke our connection was intense and immediate.  Stephanie was just a dream, and Adrain has this super amazing sense of humor that made them feel like friends.  Add to that the fact that they are major foodies who allowed me to introduce them to the joy of Sushi Burritos (your welcome!) and our time together never felt like work...always play!

This beautiful duo blended their backgrounds, incorporating stunning Chinese traditions with modern western trends.

Stephanie and Adrian met while each working to become doctors.  After noticing her, Adrian invited her to an Eagles concert.  Stephanie didn't know any of the words, but she pretended any way to keep the interest of the handsome guy a few years ahead of her.

Many, many concerts and international trips later, they became engaged with a stunning emerald cut engagement ring surrounded by a halo of small round diamonds.  Knowing that most of their family and friends would need to travel, they decided to host a destination wedding in Las Vegas.  The rooms, restaurants, and entertainment were guaranteed to keep everyone occupied, while the space at The Mandarin Oriental was closely tied to Adrian's heart.  As a child, he took tea at The Mandarin with his family.  When they first visited the property, they were presented with a folder that had a crane on it; the bride's maiden name.  And the logo, MO, matched Adrian's last name.  It was fate!  

In designing the wedding, we wanted to match Stephanie's love of deep, dark, reds with her clean, modern style.  We started with the Chinese Tea Ceremony, where the couple honored their family and friends.  The bride wore a custom, handmade lace gown while the groom donned a tuxedo.  They were gifted with jade jewelry and red envelopes while guests snacked on sandwiches, mini desserts, and fruits.

Afterwards, they got ready separately so that the first time they saw one another would be at the aisle.  They did exchange gifts, his and her Rolex watches, and share a first touch before their Western Ceremony.  

When the doors to the ballroom opened, Stephanie was greeted by a full, lush aisle surrounded by high and low florals.  We switched the color scheme from the deep reds to white, ivory, and blush, with just a pop of a deeper color to keep the design and color scheme consistent.  

At the aisle we set a beautiful structure trimmed with roses, and supporting a hanging pendent chandelier.  Afterwards, we transitioned into a larger space decorated with a high gloss, seamless white dance floor and a selection of both round and long tables.  Towering florals sat upon glass vases, while other tables had long, meandering clusters of roses and hydrangea in gold vases.  

Song after song, dance after dance, the couple celebrated with family and friends from around the world.  As the evening ended, the newlyweds left through a flurry of white rose petals.  

I love the fact that, months later, both Stephanie and Adrian still like and comment on my photos, that they reach out when something is funny, and that I forever have friends in Texas.  I adore them, and when you scroll through these pictures you will, too.

Always...

 Best Las Vegas Wedding Planner
