Bridal Spectacular features a Las Vegas wedding captured Ella Gagiano Studios.

It was truly a Las Vegas wedding for the ages when Jennifer Turco became Mrs. Zowie Bowie with a beautiful October wedding. It was a star-studded event full of elegance, incredible performances, and, of course, love.

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

A Glimpse at Jennifer and Chris’ Wedding

As featured in the spring edition of Spectacular Bride Magazine, Jennifer and Chris became husband and wife on October 4. The couple selected the Hartland Mansion because of the venue’s nostalgic Vegas vintage vibe that has shaped so many Las Vegas performers of past, including Chris. The Mansion boasted a striking black and white checkered floor, dramatic double staircase, grand hall with a stunning indoor pool, and a stage large enough for all of the fabulous entertainers. To complement the venue’s remarkable architecture, the couple selected an art deco wedding theme complete with black, white and red details as well as radiant gold accents.

More than 250 guests joined Jennifer and Chris to celebrate their special day, including groomsmen Las Vegas Strip headliner Gordie Brown, Las Vegas Review-Journal’s John Katsilometes, and Emmy-winning television set designer Andy Warmsley. In addition, Robin Leach of ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous’ and Comedian Rich Little were among the distinguished guest list.

As a true entertainer’s wedding, Paul Shortino of Raiding The Rock Vault officiated the ceremony, Rich Little toasted the couple with his many voices, Gordie Brown sang to the couple in celebration of their nuptials, and the groom himself serenaded his absolutely beautiful bride with “What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life” by Barbra Streisand. The wedding continued into the earlier morning hours with nonstop music, dancing and fun!

We hope you enjoy this glimpse of Jennifer and Chris’ breathtaking wedding day as captured by Ella Gagiano Studios.
