Wedding Pics from Vegas!


I missed you gals! We were so busy this weekend so I didn't have time to hop on the 'net, so I know I have TONS of stuff to catch up on! I am scared to check my emails, haha.

Vegas was, and is always a lot of fun! My co-worker Maricel got married this past saturday; congrats to her and her new husband Patrick! It was such an adorable ceremony, and she looked so gorgeous! The chapel has GLASS FLOWERS, yup GLASS! I thought that was pretty cool, and their daughter was their flower girl and she was just TOO CUTE! The party favors was a deck of cards that said "Lucky in love" on one side and "Two of a kind" on the other.

I brought my digital SLR, so I was able to take a few photos to add to my portfolio. For those of you who are new to reading my blog, my first love has always been photography, so I actually like it more than makeup (I know shocker huh!) There's just a rush I get from photograhy- how the camera captures what you sometimes can't see with the naked eye; how it just freezes time! It's just fun!

The BF and I gambled a bit, and of course HE won again, he always wins that lucky bastard, LOL. First of all, he found a voucher on the floor for $15, which he used to play on a slot machine, and in turn, he won $230 off of that! Then he won another $200 playing blackjack. It was funny because we were walking around the roulette tables with some of our friends and the BF says "watch it's gonna be black 8", and so the dealer starts to spin the ball and it lands on black 8!!!! We were all just in disbelief that he called it, and at the same time we were yelling at him that he should have bet, but he said that if he bet he wouldn't have won (he has this thing where if he's truly feeling a table then he'll win, if not, he'll lose), so I know he had tons of fun, LOL.

I on the other hand, went to the CCO (Cosmetics Company Outlet) and of course picked up a few goodies for myself (with the money he won hahaha), he always gives me money when he wins, he says it goes back to "karma" and sharing the wealth- can't argue there if it gets me makeup, LOL. So I just got the Renewal Defense Charged Water, Lacquer in "Tongue in Chic", Lustre lipglass in "Bateaux", MAC l/s (LE) in "Propaganda" (the most gorgeous NUDE color I have ever seen! The swatch doesn't do it justice!), Alexander McQueen e/s in "Haunting" and "Pagan".

Then we ate at the Wynn buffet for the first time, OMG that was one good buffet! They had candied apples and my favorite- cupcakes! I was in HEAVEN!

Anyway, here are some pics!

The glass least you know they'll never die, lol.

Me & the BF, I got my dress from a mom & pop shop called "Fashion Q" near my work:

fuzkittie said...

Very cool~ I thought the sky in Planet Hollywood was real at first, before I read "Planet Hollywood" hahaha.

Tracy said...

You took some beautiful pictures! I wish I went to Vegas. We decided not to go to save money, but I ended up splurging over the weekend. Haha. Darn...

kae said...

looks like you had a lot of fun! and great haul! :)

Kotyonok said...

Hi :)
I was just wondering if you could let me know where exactly the Cosmetics Company Outlet is located.

supervillain said...

That's so funny. I recently started playing blackjack. My mom lives right next to Casino Morongo so I stop by and play whenever I visit her. So far I've won about $1600 all together just playing a little here and there. I know what your bf means when he talks about not feeling a table. I never win when I'm not getting a winning vibe from a table.
I eat at the pampas grill by my house all the time, especially when I'm on a low carb diet. =)
The wedding pics are nice. I hate taking wedding pics, because I like to just get krunk and have fun at weddings, but everyone and their mom begs me to bring my camera and snap shots at their weddings. Jerks. haha. I like natural light shots. I never have the time to take them. The wedding shots are nice. The ring bearer IS cute. There's something about little boys in formal cowboy wear that makes me wanna say awww and start pinching cheeks. =)
Looks like you had fun. =) I have a funny story about vegas weddings that I'm gonna post one of these days. Oh, it's a HOOT!

yummy411 said...

Phyrra said...

That little flower girl is precious.
You and your boyfriend look so cute together!
I love the vibrant and pretty bridesmaid dresses.

I have Tongue in Chic, I bet you'll love it ;)

Iyah said...

Cool! FASHION Q! That's where I go sometimes and they have nice clothes for a decent price :D Its near my house. :)
