Sev and Libbie's Vegas Wedding

One of Josh and my best friend's, Sev, got married Mother's Day weekend in Las Vegas.  Everyone stayed at the Planet Hollywood resort and casino, and it was such a fun place.  We checked in on Thursday afternoon, and took a tour of the place, grabbed a drink, shopped a bit (bought some new Ray Bans), and then met the group upstairs in the bridal suite for the welcome cocktail party.  We socialized for a bit, and then we went across the street the O Show at the Bellagio with Bryan and his girlfriend, Michelle.  The show was so neat, and we had great seats!  Josh wasn't feeling great that night, so we went back to the room and went to bed shortly afterwards.

Friday morning, we woke up bright and early (due to the two hour time difference), and made our way to Mon Ami Gabi for breakfast. We had great seats right on the street underneath the Eiffel Towel.  We both had eggs benedict, and it was delicious! After breakfast, we made our way down the strip, stopping in several resorts to check them out.  We loved the Venetian, and we took a gondola ride around the inside of the resort.  After being "tourists" for the morning, we went back to Planet Hollywood, and we met our friends at the pool before the guys needed to head to the wedding.  While Josh was taking pictures before the wedding, Michelle and I walked around the Miracle Mile shops to kill some time before we needed to get ready.

The wedding was at the Neon Museum, and it was the coolest venue.  It was a neon sign graveyard, and they had old signs from the casinos and buildings from around the area.  Instead of formal seating, there were couches and cocktail tables set up around the venue for a lounge feel.  It was a very informal wedding, and the wedding party walked in and was able to sit with us during the ceremony.  The food was great, especially the passed appetizers. We had a blast dancing to the DJ and visiting with all of our good friends, and some of our friend's parents that we hadn't seen in way too long.

On Saturday morning, we woke up a little early again, not on purpose, and headed to breakfast next door at Sugar Factory.  It was another great breakfast, and after we finished, we made our way down the other direction of the strip that we walked the day before.  We walked around the Aria and New York,  and I talked Josh into riding the roller coaster at New York, New York with me.  It was such a fun ride, and I'm surprised that we actually had the guts to ride it!  After being tourists again for the morning, we met up with our friends at our cabana at the pool.  It was an awesome time that day, but especially that whole weekend! It was such a blast visiting with old friends again, and we may have even had a bit too much fun like old times :)!  That night, Josh and I ate some delicious sushi at Tao before meeting up with everyone at the Paris piano bar and then calling it a night. It was such an awesome weekend!

It was fun, Vegas!
We are so happy for Sev and Libbie, and we hope to come out to Denver to see them sometime soon!
