I’m such a sucker for long distance relationships.  Jason and I lived in different states while we were dating in high school (can you call that dating?!?) But, I think Stephanie + Henrik took long distance relationships to the next level and totally made our 4 hour drive to visit each other seem like a ride around the block.  You see, Stephanie lives here in Las Vegas.  Henrik lived in Stockholm, Sweeden.

Yet, regardless of the distance, they fell in love.  They made their relationship work.  They knew they couldn’t live without each other and so after countless amounts of paperwork and many long plane rides later they tied the knot on April 4, 2014.  I don’t think these two will ever be too far apart ever again….

Stephanie + Henrik  had an intimate ceremony with family and friends and then met up with us at the beautiful Springs Preserve to get some modern portraits around the gardens of the two of them on their wedding day.  We also made our way to the Arts District Downtown for a few edgy urban shots.  Big shout out to the team from Makeup in the 702 for Stephanie’s fabulous hair & makeup!  And I’ll just say, I absolutely loved Stephanie’s unconventional style and found a beautiful black wedding dress that is totally her!

Brie + Ricky met a few years ago in Hawaii while in medical school and have since made Southern California their home.  They chose Las Vegas as their destination wedding location because they wanted their friends and family to not only celebrate their wedding day together, but also have fun and make it an event.  Let me tell ya, they were not disappointed.  Brie and Ricky’s wedding was a mix of modern and traditional elements and of course, lots of style!

Brie and Ricky wanted to capture a bit of the hustle and bustle of the strip, as well as the beautiful and peaceful setting of their wedding venue, The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Club Resort.  So, we met them at the ever so classy, Vdara Hotel and Spa, where the couple and their bridal party were getting ready.  After the couple’s first look, we took a stroll down to the strip for some street shots!  We then headed over to Paiute Golf Club Resort for their beautiful ceremony and reception where the day just turned out to be perfection and full of laughter, fun, and lots of love, of course!

Earlier this month we went on a 5 day road trip with the kiddos!  It was a ton of fun and just what we needed before the busy Spring wedding season took off.   Diego’s school is year-round, so rather than the conventional 3 months off during the summer, he gets 3week track breaks throughout the year, the first was in November and now in March.  We figured we’d take advantage of the time off and call it Spring Break!  Our little road trip consisted of driving to San Diego from Las Vegas then from San Diego to Ensenada, Mexico.  We arrived late afternoon to La Jolla Beach where we were all ready to run around in the sand and stretch our legs!

The next day we enjoyed a whale watching tour before heading to Ensenada, Mexico.  Our first morning in Ensenada we went to see La Bufadora, one of the largest blowholes in North America.   We spent the rest of our afternoon playing at the beach, collecting seashells, and enjoying the beach all to ourselves! It was perfect! On our last full day, we drove out to La Cava de Marcelo, a cheese farm I had heard of on Trip Advisor.  It was so worth the drive!  We enjoyed a nice tour of the farm, learned how they make their artisan cheeses, and had a tasting of 5 different cheeses in the cave.  Afterwards, the kids played around and we ate a delicious lunch al fresco!  We ended our evening with some shopping along the main street of Ensenada and a seafood dinner!

The drive back to the U.S was long and waiting to cross the border took about 2 hrs. so as soon as we were in San Diego, we headed to Balboa Park so the kids could run around and stretch before the long ride home.  This trip was a lot of fun and wasn’t too packed with activities, so we were all able to just relax and enjoy our days away from the routine!  We love spending time together with our family and are so grateful for all the wonderful and fun adventures and trip we get to do! xo
