To Vegas For Engagement Pictures
Hahahaha, I bet some of you clicked on this title thinking I was talking about me. Funny funny. Nope, it is my brother who is getting married to a lovely girl named Warren. Both of them live in Las Vegas (Warren is a junior high teacher and Alan is a lighting tech at The Mirage) and our sister Jamie is a photographer, so all the Peterson sisters roadied down to Vegas last weekend to take their engagement pictures and drive down Las Vegas Blvd blasting the Numa Numa song (aka "Dragostea din Tei", it's Romanian.)

Alan and Warren were hellbent on not getting anything even vaguely Vegas related in their pictures (they aren't particularly fond of the city), so they picked this place for their pictures called Lake Las Vegas; it's about 20 minutes outside of Henderson and totally fake. It's a Ritz-Carlton resort designed to look like a little Italian town right down to the cobblestone roads, arched bridges over a canal and "neighborhoods" with names like "Vita Bella," "Casa Palermo," and "Luna di Lusso." Granted, it's very pretty. Jamie also did good work incorporating the Italian feel into their pictures. Here are a few of my favorites.

Petersons tend to be a little nutty so we were thrilled when Warren decided to join our family. Soon there will be FIVE Peterson sisters instead of four. Poor Alan will be even more outnumbered. BTW, their wedding is June 27 in Provo Canyon. Mazal tof!
