I cannot began to thank you and your staff enough! Other than the wind, which who has any say in that, everything was PERFECT. And the cake and champagne that you graciously shared, knocked it out of the park!! Our families (and US) were blown away. Steven and I knew you & your staff were special and that we were in great hands. But wow, we were amazed. My sister and brother both came up to me afterwards and expressed that from the start of all this, they each had fears that it would not go well. Stated that working with a company you do not out and throw in them being out of state, there are a million of things that could go wrong. I am happy to report that they were speechless at how seamlessly your team handled things and how your personal touches made it the epic event it was.
I truly cannot express how great our day was and that is the direct result of your team. Oh and my flowers…..SPOT ON! So great in fact, we kept them with us to bring home to Michigan. Which required a 4 day road trip, TSA security check and a plane ride. And it was worth it to keep that memory.
Jessie was fantastic. Her energy, thoughtfulness and professionalism never wavered. She was a rock-star. Took the time to listen to our concerns and work with us to get the perfect picture. Steven and I were speechless that she personally called us the morning of to talk about the pictures. Which thankfully we have a lot of!!
Angie, where do I start? I have been in way too many wedding to count yet I have never interacted with an officiant like Angie. I am honored to say that she was mine. There are no words to she how perfect she was. Her love and passion for what she does shines through her soul and cannot imagine the day without her. Her words were beautiful, moving and resonated with everyone there. Everyone in attendance felt their power and were each moved to tears at some point. She is an amazing asset to your team and please keep her so that other couples get to start marriage like we did.
Please thank both Jessie and Angie again for us and our entire family. McKenzi, you have done an amazing job and thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting our wedding together and making it everything we could have asked for and than giving us more! From the start, we stopped telling people we got married in Las Vegas because we knew it was NOTHING like what they were thinking, drive thru with Elvis. Not that there is anything wrong with that. But what you gave us was so beyond that. The whole thing was so personal and so “us”, no one believes it all happened without us ever talking on the phone or meeting in person. One of the things that I loved the most was the group text you sent me with Jessie and Angie the morning of. While that was probably a small detail to you, it blew me away. To have you take the time to reach out and make sure everyone was set but also have each-others contact was so impressive and calming. You are top notch!
Thank You – Our Vow Renewals were Amazing!
This was a great company to work with for our recent Vow Renewals. I just told them what I wanted and showed up at the location. The minister, florals and photographer were already there with everything we needed. Our pictures turned out stunning!!!! Everyone in our family is amazed at the beauty of the location and the quality of the photos! Thank you!
An easy process and the perfect day
McKenzi and her team took care of EVERY detail — even when the government shutdown got in the way of permits, McKenzi got everything taken care of! The photos were flawless and the day went off without a hitch. I couldn’t have asked for a better destination wedding. The Cactus Collective team is THE BEST.
Cactus Collective is the absolute best!
McKenzi is amazing!! She made sure everything was done the way I wanted and our pictures turned out amazing!! We got them back so quick I was shocked! We would never want our wedding any other way! We can’t thank you enough for helping make our day so special!
Dreams do come true
We had the most beautiful wedding. Cactus Collective made it possible and easy for us to plan. Mckenzi answered all my questions and during the ceremony Jesse and Angie made our dream a reality. Thank you you girls will be forever in our hearts!
Absolute dream Vegas desert elopement.
I reached out to Cactus Collective with a seemingly impossible wedding turnaround time (I believe 3 weeks!), and was surprised to get a prompt email back from company founder and lead photographer, McKenzi. She assured me that my date would be doable, and at that point began to take on really all stages of planning – from helping me select a venue based on attendance and availability (and booking said venue), to coordinating with vendors of florals and sweets, even recommending a makeup and hair vendor, who I ended up going with. I went into the wedding planning process honest with McKenzi, telling her I didn’t want to be overly involved in decision making – I trusted her vision completely, and boy did she and her team deliver =) On top of wedding planning, McKenzi is an incredibly talented photographer who was able to capture the most gorgeous photos on site (and knew the best locations offsite for perfect desert photos). Everything was truly perfect – my elopement ceremony was the best I could have imagined, and most importantly, I could relax and enjoy the day with my friends, family, and husband, knowing so many details were taken care of by McKenzi and CC. 10/10 would recommend to anybody considering a unique desert ceremony or elopement – you can’t get better than this.
Above and beyond all expectations!!!!
As extremely busy people, my husband and I were looking for someone to help us plan a quick and easy elopement. Well, we received so much more than that! McKenzi was an amazing coordinator who knew exactly what to ask and prepare for our perfect day. She handled everything so seamlessly and I had nothing to worry about. The area at Red Rock and my florals were outstanding. Our photographer, Jessie, was so talented with the camera and we had such a relaxing experience with her. Our ceremony was also so beautiful. Angie is an amazing officiant and makes you feel like she has known you for years. You can tell everyone in this company truly loves their job. Lastly, photos were very important to me as we did not invite anyone to our wedding. The pictures were more than I could of asked for. Everyone has said the photos look like they are out of a magazine and wish their wedding pictures would have been even remotely as good! Thank you so much Cactus Collective for everything! We are so happy with our decision to elope and spend time with you!
This was the best experience ever!! McKenzi was awesome the entire experience! She knows the best places to get married! From start to finish, we couldn’t have been happier! Our photos are incredible! They made it so easy and stress free! Highly recommend!!!!
Cactus Collective was everything we wanted and more. The decision to elope is usually just as, if not more, stressful than planning a big ceremony. McKenzi and her crew created a one-of-a-kind, special, perfect day for us. We realized we made the right decision once we got to the ceremony site and then again once we saw the pictures she’d taken. Whatever your motivation, Cactus Collective takes the stress out of the decision, the planning, and creates a day you’ll always look back on without regret.
Amazing Day – loved everything
This is a much delayed review for McKenzi and her team at Cactus Collective – but we were beyond thrilled with the planning process and the wedding they created.
We wanted to get married outdoors, somewhere beautiful, and wanted it to feel personal and intimate but include about 40 of our closest friends and family (and didn’t want to do a lot of the planning ourselves). McKenzi was able to recommend the perfect location for a group that size (Cactus Joe’s) as well as make it even more beautiful than it already is. The decorations were beautiful, tasteful and perfect for the surroundings, she got exactly what I envisioned for the bouquet/boutonniere, and the officiant was amazing.
The day really could not have been more perfect. Whether you have just you two or 50 guests, I have no doubt McKenzi will provide you with your dream wedding day.
Wonderful experience and excellent photography.
Wonderful experience and excellent photography. Made our wedding day memorable in every single photo. Super flexible with our personalities and fun to work with. Really the best we could ask for. Thank you McKenzi forever!!
We loved our ceremony & all of our pictures!! I’d recommend them!
We knew we wanted a quick planned wedding but that wasn’t the cookie cutter typical Vegas style wedding. I found Cactus Collective, they were very responsive & easy to work with! We loved our ceremony & all of our pictures!! I’d recommend them!
Couldn’t have been happier with our experience!
Everyone was a pleasure to work with, very professional and listened to how we envisioned celebrating our wedding. I felt like our photographer and officiant were genuinely excited for us, which was very sweet considering how many weddings they must help execute. You could really see the passion for their profession. Couldn’t have been happier with our experience!
I highly recommend Cactus Collective!
Using Cactus Collective for our special day in Red Rock Canyon was the best decision I ever made. I’m so happy they were recommended to me. McKenzi was easy to communicate with, took care of everything, and made sure the day was perfect and exactly like we imagined. I highly recommend Cactus Collective!
She really made us all feel at ease and it was just perfect
If I could award more stars I would, McKenzi and the team at cactus collective are amazing, my wedding was just perfect thanks to them.
From the moment I contacted McKenzi, I was impressed with her fast response, professionalism and friendly manner.
The day itself was perfect, our officiant wrote such a beautiful ceremony and even though we had just met it felt like we’d known her in years, she really made us all feel at ease and it was just perfect.
My flowers were beautiful, I went for the succulent bouquet and it was gorgeous, you can replant it after the ceremony, which I thought was a lovely touch.
And as for the photos – they are phenomenal, McKenzi is such an amazing photographer, the photos felt so natural and we had fun taking them – the results were just amazing!! We have so many to choose from and get to download and print them all in high res. We organized our Las Vegas wedding from home in Scotland via e-mail (call is offered) and it honestly couldn’t have been better – if you want a unique wedding in a beautiful location with some awesome vendors – don’t bother looking anywhere else, use cactus collective!
I can’t recommend them enough!!!
She truly made it a stress free process
McKenzi and Cactus Collective are simply amazing. My husband and I decided on a last minute whim to get married at Red Rock Canyon, and had just a few weeks to plan. McKenzi was very responsive with all of my questions and concerns- she truly made it a stress free process. My succulent bouquet was beautiful! I have gotten many compliments on it, and was able to take petals from it home to grow as a keepsake. And the pictures! Love, love love! I couldn’t have asked for anything more!
You really can just relax and leave details to them!
Cactus Collective is great!! McKenzi’s team is awesome! You really can just relax and leave deatails to them! Pictures are great. The vendors we used were recommended by McKenzi and all were excellent! Our wedding was beautiful and intimate just what we wanted! Thanks for all your hard work!
Less than 10 days lead time
My wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful! I planned my wedding in less than 10 days lead time. McKenzi and her group at Cactus Collective were absolutely wonderful! I was able to plan everything remotely and mainly through email. It was extremely convenient and everything was smooth and seamless. The minister was wonderful and the ceremony was perfect and personalized. The flowers were unique and beautiful. I was even able to keep my succulent bouquet and turn it into a succulent garden. Our photos are more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. You cannot go wrong with Cactus Collective Weddings!! When we renew our vows I will choose Cactus Collectives again! I will certainly use them again and will have McKenzi take family photos next time I am in Las Vegas.
This was exactly what I wanted! I couldn’t have picked a better person!
McKenzi was absolutely amazing. She was easy to talk to, very personable, on time, and very quick to respond throughout the process. We planned everything remotely, she was super helpful and had the quickest turnaround time with the photos! I’m completely amazed by how fantastic she was.
She got everything together for us, the flowers, the officiant, the location, the schedule. I didn’t have to hardly do anything. This was exactly what I wanted! I couldn’t have picked a better person!
We were blown away by McKenzi and all of her hard work!
We were blown away by McKenzi and all of her hard work! She and her assistant did an amazing job with our wedding – we are speechless! From the moment we reached out to her about having our wedding in Las Vegas, McKenzi was so responsive and professional! She booked our vendor (Bonnie Springs Ranch), officiant (Peachy Keen Unions), florist (Gaia), and of course, the photography (Taylored Photo Memories). She was very flexible and welcoming, especially on the day of the wedding when we had a hiccup with our transportation. And her photography is amazingggg! The pictures turned out SO beautiful! We are so excited to share our images with our family and loved ones!
Every detail was beautiful and our family and friends enjoyed every moment! We are so glad that her services were available to us!
We will treasure them forever!!!
Thank you so much for everything!!! From the moment we saw your website and pictures, we knew you were the best person to capture our elopement in a special and unique way. We loved the minister you chose and the florals couldn’t have been any better had we designed them ourselves…and then there are the pictures. I cried again when I saw them. They are perfect. You did an amazing job capture the feeling of the day, but more importantly our feelings for each other and the spirit of our relationship. We’re sweet to each other but also laugh constantly and that comes through in so many shots. We will treasure them forever!!!
