Bridal Spectacular Features a Las Vegas wedding at Green Valley Ranch Resort captured by Images by EDI.

It was a picturesque summer day when Rachel and Travis became husband and wife at Green Valley Ranch Resort. These two lovebirds hail from a small town in New Mexico and wanted a destination wedding that could be considered a vacation for not just their guests, but for them as well. Subsequently, they chose to have their wedding in Henderson so their guests could enjoy close access to the Las Vegas Strip, but so they could also experience a beautiful and peaceful resort wedding.

Thank you both for letting Bridal Spectacular share your beautiful Las Vegas wedding with our readers!


A Glimpse at Rachel and Travis’ Wedding

As featured in the fall edition of Spectacular Bride Magazine, Rachel and Travis’ July 25 wedding began with a stunning outdoor ceremony at Green Valley Ranch Resort, followed by a gorgeous indoor reception. Featuring a vibrant color scheme of mint, coral and gray that their wedding party displayed flawlessly, creative décor and a dazzling wedding cake, their summer wedding theme was picture-perfect!

“Our wedding was one of the most beautiful days of my life — I keep telling my husband I wish we could do it over and over,” Rachel Said. “Something that made our wedding extra special was that I walked down the aisle to a song that I wrote and composed. My husband knew I was writing our wedding music, but the fact that it was a song that I recorded and wrote just for him made it a very special moment that we will never forget.”

In addition, Rachel and Travis said that they incorporated some very special touches that made their wedding a real dream-come-true! “My Mom made my wedding bouquet,” Rachel added. “I love the vintage look of the brooch bouquet, so that is what she made for me. I had my Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue all in my bouquet. Also, my Husband is a Fireman so we HAD to cut the cake with a customized firefighter axe, which was an awesome little touch of uniqueness!”

The couple added that their wedding day was absolutely perfect and they couldn’t have asked for a better venue, photographer, videographer and DJ to bring it all together. We hope you enjoy this glimpse of their beautiful day captured by Images by EDI!
