St. Ann’s Catholic Church Wedding + Greek Orthodox Inspired Panos Hall Reception | Las Vegas, NV | David + Arlene




We began the day at the Palms Hotel. A gorgeous giant window overlooked the city and gave the most epic natural light for Arlene & her bridesmaids to get ready in.

Arlene chose my biggest package, leaving plenty of time for details too, like the rings, a flat lay, and the bride’s gorgeous get up, which included a stylish tiara and disco ball heels.

With David meeting us ladies at the venue, our first look was underway.

We stood out in the courtyard among the giant pillars at Panos Hall, on the property of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church. The courtyard is massive and green (especially when the Greek Festival isn’t happening), leaving us plenty of space to use the area for portraits after the first look too.

Arlene’s sprawling dress was a sight to behold as Arlene walked down the aisle. A local priest named Father Miguel officiated the wedding and was even family to the bride!

This couple did the traditional cord and coins, wrapping a massive rosary around themselves and wearing it for a part of the mass.

As we approached the Hall for the venue in the giant party bus, the sun was setting! We took some sunset photos just before David treated us to a private meal in the back room before making their grand entry [pic] into the reception, where they began immediately with a dollar dance to greet all of their guests (so sweet!)

A giant cake, extremely tall candles, and floating centerpieces caught the eye everywhere you looked, and made the room feel incredibly elegant.

A cake cutting, a few speeches, and a few special dances later, we continued dancing and being merry!

Tons of both the bride and groom’s family supported them and celebrated this day like no other. And though I didn’t get to order all of the men in the building around or have a ton of money pinned to my dress, I had as much of a blast as those who did. Congratulations, David & Arlene!
