A strong mutual love for the 1950s combined with an Elvis Presley-inspired style resulted in this Las Vegas-themed destination wedding, which took place in the desert town. "Our first vacation together when we began dating was to Vegas, so the location meant a lot to us," Kaitlyn Eydenberg (27 and a registered nurse) says of her marriage to Seth Ayers (30 and a technical sergeant/aircraft technician). They booked the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada, which embodied a trendy atmosphere perfect for their vintage-themed nuptials (plus, the hotel allowed their dog, Harry, to come). The lighter gray and white palette had pops of red, yellow, orange and purple that resembled the bright lights on the Vegas Strip—from the vibrant red bridesmaid shoes to the large "love" sign that brought a glamorous twist to the setting. A cork board had playing cards pinned to the front with names written on the back, which guided guests to their dining tables marked with the same white, black and red numbered cards. The white wedding cake filled with vanilla and chocolate sponge layers had sunburst designs decorating each tier, representing the older style Kaitlyn and Seth had envisioned. But Kaitlyn's look is what took our breath away—a white mermaid-style dress with a long ruffled train, which she paired with a birdcage veil that brought the vintage look to life everywhere she walked. "I really feel like we hit the jackpot—no pun intended—with our vendors in Las Vegas," Kaitlyn says. "The wedding industry in Vegas knows what they are doing and they do it well." 

Kaitlyn incorporated the vintage style that inspired their wedding theme into her own look with a white netted birdcage veil, topped with a white fabric peony flower.
The busy bouquet made up of colorful roses, craspedia, succulents and feathers created an arrangement that Kaitlyn carried down the aisle. The vibrant shades definitely created a statement against her classic white wedding dress.
Each bridesmaid wore the infinity dress by the Radical Thread in a shade of heather gray, picked out by Kaitlyn, who absolutely loved the idea of the gowns. "Each bridesmaid could virtually wrap it to fit their own style and make them feel their best," Kaitlyn says.
Succulent and Craspedia Boutonniere
Kaitlyn thought she knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding dress, but with some help from her seamstress, she chose an unexpected style that worked best for her. The white mermaid-style Sottero Midgley dress had a perfect ruffled skirt that trailed elegantly in the back, which won Kaitlyn over.

Seth rocked a classic look with his black and charcoal gray-striped tie, tucked underneath his charcoal gray vest pinned with a succulent and craspedia boutonniere.

Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas Ballroom Reception Space
Inspired by Las Vegas, Nevada, Kaitlyn created the escort cards herself and displayed them on a white-framed board. Circular silver stickers with guests' names were attached to the back of playing cards, each with a number that determined where they sat for the reception.
Kaitlyn and Seth shared a picture-worthy moment with their wedding party, who followed the neutral part of the day's palette. The groomsmen wore charcoal pants and suspenders with white dress shirts, while the bridesmaids wore short, light gray dresses in different styles for the most comfortable experience possible.

Seth stood out from his groomsmen with  a charcoal gray vest; they wore suspenders. Other than that, they all matched with gray pants, white-and-gray-striped ties and some cool shades.

The four-tier white wedding cake had vintage-inspired gray sunburst designs decorating every layer of the dessert. The cake had flavors of vanilla cake with passion fruit filling and chocolate sponge with peanut butter and jelly.
