Las Vegas Dry Lake Bed Elopement

Wedding couple at the El Dorado Dry Lake Bed

This dry lake bed elopement had a little bit of everything – hazy golden light, beautiful florals, stunning decor and the most lovely couple!

Just half an hour from the Las Vegas Strip, the El Dorado Dry Lake Bed is the perfect place for a desert elopement. The vast openness of the space and the cracked earth makes for a truly unique place to say “I do” and capture some stunning photos!

Amanda and Tommy had the most romantic and dreamy ceremony. They each exchanged personal vows and were wiping away tears throughout. Because they chose to have the ceremony at golden hour, we were able to shoot with the best lighting of the day. One of the things I love the most about it the dry lake bed is how it truly glows during golden hour!

Amanda’s florals were provided by Lorea Blooms and they couldn’t have been more perfect! The mix of colors and blooms were the perfect accent to the desert scenery and paired perfectly with the decor.

In addition to gorgeous florals, this elopement also had plenty of stunning decor and accessories. Set up by Modern Vintage Rentals, this space had so many gorgeous elements. They truly did an outstanding job bringing the entire space together.

This elopement was truly magical and I am so thankful to have been a part of it! I am also incredibly thankful to all of the other vendors who worked on this project. This dreamy desert elopement was truly magical!
