Nevada Wedding-party time!
I went to Elko, Nevada to photograph Rachel and Brandon's wedding. They live in Las Vegas, but Rachel grew up in Elko. In Rachel's words, she's a "city girl with a country heart". They had a beautiful ceremony at St. Joseph's Catholic Church near Rachel's childhood home and had an awesome reception in a huge tent outside. It was lit with lots of candles and adorned with red everything-a candy bar, cake, candles, menus, lots of flowers, and more. Elko holds the national Basque festival every year and it was going on during Rachel and Brandon's wedding weekend, so they had amazing Basque food. After dinner, the reception turned into a big party-lots of dancing. I even caught Rachel doing a keg stand! The rest of the bridal party followed course as they should! Rachel was so cute toward the end of the night, passing out her mini ice cream cones. Before I knew it, it was 2:30 a.m.! It was so fun, I didn't realize it was so late. Rachel and Brandon win the official award for latest wedding reception ever.
