Alycia of Alycia Moore Photography describes this lovely beautiful elopement: “Latasha and Detre flew all the way from Chicago to Las Vegas to elope. They had been in the middle of planning a huge wedding back in Chicago and instead, decided what was truly important to them was being with each other. So that day - they bought plane tickets and hired me!”

“They got married at the Chapel of Crystals and then we wandered around the gorgeous grounds of the JW Marriott in the west part of town. Far from the hustle and bustle of The Strip, they basked in their love for one another with our beautiful desert light that we are so blessed to have.”

“We laughed and joked with each other for the duration of our session and it was such a blessing to work with such a wonderful and fun couple. Wishing them all the best in their future together.“

Latasha, on their love story…

“I met Detre at a friends wedding in Chicago. He asked to dance with me, and it was history from there. We dated for 6 years and he finally proposed to me at the top of the Skydeck in Chicago. We started planning our wedding and realized we just wanted to elope so we bought our tickets to Vegas that day.”

“Detre is very playful and brings out my fun side while I keep him grounded and on earth. He's good at the big picture and I'm much better at the smaller details. we bring out the best in each other & I am so excited to be married to him after all these years.”
