Krystal & AJ

by | Aug 1, 2022 | Real weddings

Have you dreamed of flying off to Las Vegas to get married?  It sounds like so much fun! 

We’re so impressed that our featured couple actually made their dream destination wedding come true! Best of all, their photos are absolutely gorgeous. You will enjoy the luscious neutral tones, blooming florals, rich textures and endless smiles.

How they Met:

According to the bride, “It all started on the eve of my birthday on December 17, 2014 at a local Chicago Bar called The Beetle. A meeting by chance turned into our first date that same night. We spent the whole night at the bar getting to know each other. When midnight struck, I was officially another year older and AJ was the first one to wish me Happy Birthday- and had a shot of fireball ready to ring in my birthday. It was love at first sight, with a little help from Fireball Whiskey. 

How they Decided on Las Vegas:

“As soon as we got engaged we knew we wanted to have our wedding in Las Vegas.  What better way to celebrate our love with all our friends and family than a big celebration in our favorite city Las Vegas!  We wanted our friends and family to have a whole experience, a relaxing vacation but also a chance for all of us to turn up and let loose.

Why the Bride Said YES at Kathryn’s:

“I fell in love with my dress when I first started googling wedding dresses- I knew immediately it was ’THE One’ even before trying it on.  The only problem was that none of the Bridal shops in Chicago carried Enzoani Blue’s Natsuko.  It had everything I was looking for, I wanted something romantic and whimsical yet sultry.  I went to three Bridal Shops in the city trying to find something similar; after 20 dresses I decided to look in the suburbs for my dress.  I found Kathryn’s Bridal!  I made an appointment and specified what dress I was looking for.  Once I arrived for my appointment, they had the dress ready for me to try on; it was the only dress I tried on at Kathryn’s.  Kathryn’s made the process so easy and everyone was so friendly.  Their seamstress, Sherry, did such a wonderful job with my dress alterations.  They really made the whole process easy and stress free for me,”
