Thank you both, along with Marcella Photography, for letting Bridal Spectacular share your beautiful Las Vegas wedding with our readers!
A Glimpse at Alyson and Ra’Shad’s Wedding
To begin, Alyson and Ra’Shad’s elegant Smith Center wedding took place on a beautiful July afternoon. After dreaming about her ideal wedding dress for nearly a decade, Alyson selected a stunning custom-made Pnina Tornai dress in blush pink. And, to compliment the beautiful bride, the bridesmaids wore floor-length white gowns while the guys sported navy blue tuxes. The bridal party was the portrait of perfection!
Then, after taking their first look and bridal portraits, it was time for their elegant Smith Center wedding. After their lovely ceremony, Alyson and Ra’Shad headed upstairs for the reception. Here, the couple selected classy colors with white, pink and lavender floral arrangements and gold accents. Finally, when the night was over, they enjoyed a sparkler sendoff to conclude their evening.
A Quote From the Bride
“So, my husband and I have a handshake we made up together,” Alyson shared. “We don’t do it very often, we save it for very special moments. And, since our handshake ends with us kissing, we decided we were going to do it at the altar just before our first kiss. We didn’t tell our guests this as we thought it would be a unique surprise. When the pastor said, ‘You may kiss the bride’ we started our handshake and the guests started cheering and clapping. We had so many people tell us how cool it was and they loved it. Also, we chose to finish the night with our handshake during our sparkler exit right before we entered the limo to leave!
And so, we hope you enjoy this glimpse of Alyson and Ra’Shad’s elegantly unique Smith Center wedding captured by Marcella Photography.
