For many couples in love, the perfect moments don’t take months of planning, freaking out or trying to put together a list of guests.

Eloping in Vegas is what comes naturally whether you live nearby or as far away as Scotland, the land of the unicorn.

That’s how Gail and Nick decided to make it official.

They had vacationed in Las Vegas, fell in love with the stunning desert landscape and decided they would come back eventually and say their “I dos.”

The gorgeous photos capture the beaming Scottish couple surrounded by impressive Red Rock Canyon that dazzles in purity and sereneness.

Taking a walk down the rustic aisle of nature was exactly what Gail and Nick had hoped for, and booking one of the elegant Las Vegas elopement packages took away any stress or indecision that might arise.

The bride and groom brought some essentials that were dear to them from Scotland. These cozy touches connected the faraway beauty of their homeland to the exquisite desert spot.

One of these was a “quaich,” the signature Scottish loving cup designed with two handles on opposite sides. The cup is used at celebratory events to symbolize a shared love with a sip of bourbon. For Gail and Nick, this was a sweet seal of commitment atop Red Rock Canyon.

Gail beautifully wore a Jenny Packham dress and paired it with an ostrich feather bolero for a vintage accent. Her sexy, birdcage veil came with her from a Glasgow wedding shop.

Her groom was handsomely attired in a navy suit and tie; the bridesmaid and her boyfriend completed the look with modern elegance.

Gail and Nick have zero regrets about eloping in Vegas at Red Rock Canyon and highly recommend Cactus Collective Weddings:

“Just relax, take in the amazing views and enjoy!”
