Chris & Annie tied the knot at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 22nd, 2009. Friends and family traveled from all over the US and Asia. After the ceremony Annie had arranged for the entire wedding group of 80 guests to be shuttled over to the famous Las Vegas Sign for a massive group photo. All was going well, the shuttles and limos came, and guests set out for the sign……….. or did they??!!!! Naturally the limo with the bride and groom made it, and I directed the 2nd shuttle to the sign, but the other 2 shuttles vanished!! It’s still unclear what happened to half of the wedding guests. Traffic? Flat tire? No one will ever know, but I can certainly think of a few ways they might have killed an hour in Sin City =)
Festivities resumed at Maggiano’s Little Italy, guests enjoyed the live band and specialty martini menu while the food began to flow. If you haven’t been to Maggiano’s you are missing something special. This is not your local Olive Garden around the corner, there’s a reason every celebrity that is anybody has a signed autographed picture on the wall. I can’t go too long without at the very least popping in for happy hour and having Crispy Zuchini Fritte and Stuffed Mushrooms. I am always tempted to try and fit the bottle of White Star that is as big as me into my camera bag, but physics prevail. Dinner was served family style, and as guests struggled to loosen a few belt notches they received a visit from The King! Elvis melted a few dozen ladies and gave some karate kick lessons to the guys. I think he left just in time to avoid the 2 laps of XO shots around the room with the bride and groom. If you are thinking back now if whether or not you made a “shot” face afterwards, you probably did, and yes, it’s on camera =)
Great celebration, I hope you all enjoyed Las Vegas! If anyone missed the email list and would like to be added for the final image list, just send an email to email@example.com
