Boulder City Desert Boulder Creek Golf Club Wedding: Carly + Sean

Carly and Sean’s love story, unfolding from a serendipitous meeting at work to the creation of a home filled with laughter and furry companions, set the stage for a magical wedding day in the heart of Boulder City, NV. What drew me to them was not only their shared love for penguins but also the delightful touch of humor reflected in their ring engravings—Sean’s “guess what” and Carly’s “chicken butt.” From that moment on, I knew this wedding was going to be special.

The morning was filled with excitement as the girls gathered at Carly and Sean’s house overlooking the vast desert and Boulder City. Amidst the laughter and chatter, heartfelt stories were shared about Carly’s heart of gold and the profound impact of their friendships. Meanwhile, the guys embarked on a unique adventure, starting with desert photos at Veteran’s Memorial Park and concluding with some playful moments on the playground.

The first look was a moment to cherish, with Sean positioned at the edge of the desert and Carly surprising him with a cheeky grab. The sheer happiness in that Mojave landscape was palpable. Sean’s brother added a whimsical touch by secretly bringing over a VW bus, decked out with rose petals, decorations, and even snacks, whisking the couple away to the Boulder Creek Golf Club for the ceremony.

Against the backdrop of heartfelt vows exchanged during the ceremony, the reception kicked off with a grand entrance, followed by the couple’s dreamy first dance to ‘Iris’ by the Goo Goo Dolls—a personal favorite of mine. Sweet parent dances, a playful cake-cutting ceremony that left a bit of cake on Sean’s face, and a vibrant dance floor lit up the night.

As the festivities unfolded, it was evident that Carly and Sean’s love story continued to evolve in the most enchanting way. Here’s to the newlyweds, whose journey together promises more laughter, love, and beautiful moments. May their marriage be as captivating as their wedding day, filled with joy, humor, and endless love.

Thank you for the honor of capturing your wedding day Carly + Sean!

Carly + Sean’s Review: 


“Alicia and Keith were amazing! On top of being professional and super prepared, they were also fun, positive and helped us make our special day wonderful! Before the wedding Alicia was very responsive, going so far as to help us plan our timeline, and helped keep things moving day of. She was speedy in getting us our final gallery and the photos are simply stunning. I love the way she did the lighting, her creativity on poses and setting, & her direction and efficiency. Literally could not have asked for a better experience. I will be recommending this team to everyone I know.”
