This elopement is something quite special – a ceremony in the most intimate format you can possibly imagine. A romantic ceremony in Las Vegas that featured stunning views of majestic mountains, gorgeous greens and sparkling lakes is where Rachael and Bryan committed their love to one another with the ancient Celtic tradition of handfasting. Having nothing but themselves and their officiant present, they were able to have the secluded and romantic ceremony of their dreams.
WHAT WORDS WOULD YOU USE TO DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING?
Intimate Scottish Ceremony
Snuggled up watching TV on the couch at home when suddenly he got down on one knee and asked for the honor of Rachael to be his wife and best friend forever. It was just us, in our natural habitat, and it was absolute perfection!
Scottish heritage, spectacular scenery, intimate with no background noise/scenic distractions
THE PLANNING PROCESS:
I found Emily’s business online and left the rest to her, she’s pure magic! Our first venue selection canceled on us 2 weeks prior to the wedding and Emily found us an even BETTER venue (Paiute Golf Resort) just-in-time. We filled out questionnaires and she arranged the rest. Only thing we had to coordinate was our marriage license and the transportation.

ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES
Take the stress out of the whole thing and hire Emily! Golf Courses are green and well-maintained year round if you’re looking for scenic venue. We eloped due to COVID but we think it was the best anyhow. The ceremony was for us and now we get to celebrate at a later date with our family.
