Luck Be a Lady

The Friday before last we headed over to Las Vegas for a little R&R and the much anticipated wedding of my Dad and the beautiful Leah! It was the perfect place for them to wed since my Dad proposed to her on New Years there (we were lucky enough to be there to see that too!).
We stayed at the Encore which (let me tell you) is definitely one of my favorite hotels I've ever stayed in. The spa and the rooms are so wonderfully decorated. Of course its over the top Vegas-style but there is some serious eye-candy in that hotel. Huge red glass chandeliers, faux alligator skin wallpaper, oversized lamps and black lacquered accents everywhere. You could never get bored looking around in that place.

On the second night we saw a Cirque-Du-Soleil show (the third one I've seen) called Love...the Beatles tribute. It was AMAZING. Loved it!!! I have also seen Ka and Zumanity...and although they are all unique and great...I think this one was my favorite so far.
Here is the Amazing hotel we stayed at: The Encore

This restaurant is called Wazuzu...its located in the Encore. We had the tastiest sushi there!
All the hotel rooms in the Encore are suites! Here are what the rooms look like!

I thought I would include a few wedding photos for everyone to see. We are so happy for my Dad and Leah! I couldn't even imagine a better person suited to my Dad. They are like two peas in a pod! I have never seen my Dad so happy!

Nathaniel was the best man! Lookin' sharp in his uni

Leah's dress was stunning. It was a Maggie Sotero. The collar was so unique...if anyone watches the series the Tudors...it seemed inspired by this.

What a great day! Congrats Dad and Leah!

Wow, what an incredible looking hotel! Makes me want to go to Vegas (maybe one day...when we stop renovating!).

WOW is all I can say! You weren't kidding when you said this was a beautiful hotel!

Jaime said...

Never been myself, but Hubby and I definitely want to go! Beautiful wedding!

BTW - I know you mentioned that you were looking for wire baskets too. I just came across a bunch at HomeSense. (Mine look like they're made with chicken wire - which for some reason I love!) Not sure if your town will be the same, but I wanted to let you know!

Thank you Ladies! Right now I'm wishin' we were poolside in Vegas again!!
Jaime-thanks for the info! Im still looking for some so I'll have to check out our local Home Sense!
Mrs.Markley- we actually bought our whole outfit...accessories and all at the Fashion Show mall in Vegas the day before the wedding!!! The headbands are from Arden B. We had lots of people notice and comment on them! We are so lucky the Bride was open to us wearing whatever we wanted!!! :)
