We, at Makeup In The 702 have been in the Las Vegas wedding industry for quite awhile now. We have also been privileged and honored to work with, what we believe to be some the most genuinely kind, caring and talented professionals in the industry.
Through various events and organizations we regularly get to see and collaborate with Las Vegas wedding vendors like florists, bakers, photographers, seamstresses, designers and planners, but its not every day we get to mingle and meet our peers in other markets across the nation. When we got The Knots list of “50 Wow- Worthy Weddings Across all 50 States” it was exciting not only because we LOVE swooning over beautiful celebrations of love, but we get a chance to see how things are done across the country.
While I wish we could share all 50 off these gorgeous celebrations we picked out a few of the states that hold a special place in the heart of the Makeup In The 702 team. Enjoy!!
As their wedding week approached, Eric and Michael began to realize that if the Cubs won the World Series, their victory parade could end up happening the day of their wedding—and possibly going past their venue, the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. “As fate would have it, these events did collide but in an amazingly fun way,” Michael says. “Fortunately, nothing about the parade interfered with our wedding, it only added to the celebration. Many of our favorite photos of that day were us out and about with parade-goers and the wedding party having the time of our lives.”

“Having met in the choir at college, music was the prominent focus of Desta and Benjamin’s rustic-chic wedding at Charles River Museum. During the ceremony, Benjamin surprised Desta by serenading her with a rendition of Leon Bridges’ “Coming Home,” accompanied by close friends who sang backup and played the guitar and saxophone. (A choir even performed a benediction to bless the reception dinner.)”

“In just three months, Holly and Roger planned an elegant DIY affair with a subtle bohemian twist at the Providence Public Library. “When we walked into the Providence Public Library, the architecture alone took our breath away,” Holly says. The couple incorporated elements that spoke to their New England locale, affording friends and family a taste of local flavor. In lieu of a traditional champagne toast, Holly and Roger opted for a chowder toast, providing each guest with mini mugs of New England clam chowder garnished with bite-size clam cakes.”
“No celebration in the nation’s capital would be complete without a few nods to history, and Kate and Nick didn’t disappoint, gathering their friends and family at the National Museum of Women in the Arts for a blowout bash in their hometown of Washington, DC. The reception kicked off with cocktail hour in the galleries, where guests enjoyed Champagne Sparkles, live music and the museum’s myriad of artwork. To allow the unique features of the venue to shine through, the couple opted for a clean, elegant aesthetic for the reception, complete with mirrored tabletops, lush bouquets of full white blooms and gold-rimmed stemware.”
Brooke and Paul showcased Louisiana’s natural beauty by saying “I do” under a Spanish moss tree “in the swamp.” Their breezy, boho vibe paired with seafood gumbo and a ride on a pontoon boat rounded out the dreamy affair.
The state’s desert colors, petrology and various species of cacti accented the bohemian vibe of Christa and Jesse’s waterfront vows.
At Sarah and George’s Western wedding, a horse-drawn wagon transported guests from the ceremony cliffside to the reception at a ranch.
An inviting lounge in Morgan and Bryan’s hometown kept the December chill away for the couple’s holiday-inspired nuptials.
Since Marie and Chase love the outdoors, they exchanged vows at a natural history museum with views of the Wasatch Mountains.
