The Venetian is a luxury hotel in the heart of Las Vegas, featuring a breathtaking modern wedding chapel overlooking pool gardens. Dazzling chandeliers, stunning views, and timeless glamor made Ariel and Curtis’ wedding all that more stunning.

Captured by Vanessa Joy Photography, lavender and cream set the scene for a luxurious and dreamy ceremony and reception. Ariel and Curtis exchanged heartfelt vows in a chapel before friends and family, with tulle runners and lush white floral arrangements accenting the space. But it was only a preview of the glamorous reception that awaited guests.

Bride Ariel and Groom Curtis made a grand entrance with attire to match the opulence of the chandelier reception. Ariel’s breathtaking mermaid wedding dress featured a scalloped lace bodice with a dramatic tulle skirt. Jeweled heels and a silver barrette perfectly complemented the look. The bridal party donned a classic black tuxedo and fitted lavender dresses.

Every table was set with crystal clear candles, lush white and lavender bouquets, and elegant table numbers. The sweetheart table paired French-style chairs with a breathtaking floral archway. The four-tier cream cake was elegant, accented with fondant florals, and topped with an initial to represent the newlywed’s union.

But the most memorable moments of the night had less to do with the splendor of the chandeliers, the enchanting mood lighting, or even the stunning floral arrangements. From the vows to the first dance, all eyes were on Ariel and Curtis as they shared smiles, laughter, and excitement for their life.
