What a Pinterest Wedding Looks Like in Person
You guys, I’ve been inside one of those perfect photos you see on Pinterest, and I’m as amazed as ever that people are able to think of and create such pretty things.
Remember the ranch wedding in Vegas that I needed an outfit for? It happened over the weekend, and it was beautiful. (I tried to bring back the 75° sunny weather, but alas, we’re getting more snow instead.)
Legends Ranch is about 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, a bona fide horse ranch in the middle of the desert. We didn’t know what to expect, but it wound being a beautiful setting for a wedding.
For those wondering what I wound up wearing, I borrowed a dress from my brother’s girlfriend (thanks Jackie!) , bought some (weirdly comfortable) cork wedges, got my hair did, tossed on some shades, and hoped for the best. It was all good until I realized I was wearing the same color as the bridesmaids. Whoops.
The wedding food? Provided by food trucks. Sounds weird, but it was amazing. Duzzy had a made-to-order cheesesteak and some tacos, his sister had a lobster roll (so good!!!), I had a custom teriyaki bowl, his brother had a meatball sub. Not exactly the norm when it comes to wedding food…but they were all perfect and delicious.
Traditional wedding cake? Psh…there was a dessert bar where you could fill bags with different candy and grab a mini cupcake or two.
When it comes down to it, it was just FUN. Everyone got a labeled Mason jar at their seat to bring to the bar for cocktails. There were games like corn hole, ladder golf, and horseshoes.
There was a stage where the ceremony took place, a dance floor where we partied the night away under strings of lights, and a photo booth to remember it all. It was even more beautiful as the sun set, but as I said…we had Mason jars full of cocktails so…I didn’t get many pictures as the night went on.
It was far from a traditional wedding…but it’s probably one of the best I’ve ever been to, mostly because it really seemed like a celebration, done on the couples’ terms, a nod to the type of life they want to have together, laughing and smiling with family and friends.
Congrats Allison and Dave!
