Married in Las Vegas! - Jane Porter

As some of you may know from Facebook and my blog, I got married last month! My surfer guy, Ty Gurney, and I tied the knot on September 17th in an Elvis style wedding in Las Vegas. We’d originally planned on a small wedding with just a few family and friends but as it happens with these things, it got bigger and better.


Being a romance writer, I love weddings. I write them in my Harlequin Presents, but also love them in real life. I love dressing up and having a party. I love having a reason to celebrate with family and friends and just rejoicing about all the good things in life.


I had so much fun in Las Vegas. I never would have thought I'd do a Vegas wedding but it was perfect! I loved my gorgeous dress and pretty red heels. I loved Elvis singing to us in the little Vegas wedding chapel, and all the fun Vegas themed touches we included for the reception. Ty loves black, and I love red so we combined the colors for a glamorous black and red color scheme. Our cake was one of my favorite things, as well as the a poolside cocktails with the sun setting in the background. It was great to have my family and closest friends there (including the fabulous Caitlin Crews) to help us celebrate the special day.




There’s one more thing I want to share – my new novella, One Christmas Night In Venice is featured as one of the stories in the anthology Mistletoe Wishes. It’s a story set in Venice during Christmas and I had such great fun writing it. I love Venice just as much as I love Christmas. My characters, Domencio and Diane find love together for a second time under the stars in this gorgeous city. I hope you’ll look for it and hopefully enjoy reading it!
