Do weddings get much more jaw-droppingly dramatic than those with the rocky, windswept backdrop of of the Valley of Fire in Nevada? I think not!
Molly and Patrick wed on the 8th April 2017 and not only am I completely smitten with their location choice, but that powder blue colour scheme has really got my heart a-beating! The contrasting details are what makes this wedding just irresistible; rugged, wild umber terrain set against vintage tableware, stunning blooms (helloooo hydrangeas!) and of course that fabulous armchair. This charming and intimate wedding feels like Molly and Patrick picked up the furniture and tableware off a fancy dining room from decades past and transported it to a rustic shelter in the heart of the Valley of Fire. Amazing.
Molly’s dress is just beautiful, and her veil flows so perfectly in the wind – she certainly pulls off the gorgeous windswept look effortlessly!
Get ready to be thoroughly wowed by Cactus and Lace Weddings’ images – they certainly have captured the windy heights of fiery Nevada exceptionally. Enjoy!
FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER | Molly’s mom asked out loud as she was leaving the dorm, if anyone needed anything, as she was going to run to the store. Patrick piped up and asked for a case of water. So according to Mom, she met Patrick by chance. They figured that out much later.
They began to date and as those things go, Molly and Patrick became a pair. We asked, “So Patrick, when did you know she was the one?” According to Patrick, it happened this way. She was moving out of her dorm, and he happened to be moving out of his place too. He told her he was moving, and she said ” Well, I am coming with you, aren’t I?” And the rest is history.
The wind did blow like the dickens. Our hair did look like Supermodels under the big fan, and Molly, how did she do in the stiff wind in her gown and beautifully done hair? Well, we think she looked amazingly lovely. And the wind could not change that one bit. Great job Molly, Patrick and family for your great ability to roll with those winds and tumbleweeds and come out wonderfully! It will be a day to remember!
