Amy has a natural vintage style with a lil' sass to go with it... just look at her headpiece! She also happens to be my beautiful cousin.
Saffet is a Turkish gentleman. He's smart, a true class-act and so very cool and collected. Perfect for my cousin in every way!
Their wedding ceremony was a cozy gathering of their closest friends and family nestled under flowing Willow Trees lakefront at Lakeside Weddings, a unique banquet garden in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas.
Amy and Saffett met while they both worked at Zappos.com in Las Vegas in 2009. Amy worked in the Customer Loyalty Dept. and Saffet is the Director of Information Security. It didn't take long for Saffet to show Amy how special she was to him. From their first date at Bouchon in the Venetian to his surprise proposal at Joel Robuchon during a 12 course meal in the MGM - living in Las Vegas has it's perks when you've got class, style and you're falling in love!
Amy's mother Susan is my father's first cousin. Both my father and Susan grew up in New York together and they ended up in Las Vegas just a few miles away from one another.
It was especially heartwarming when I saw my grand-Aunt Frieda's wedding ring on Amy's hand (Frieda was my grandmother's sister).
I couldn't be happier for Amy and Saffet and look forward to the family growing and more family visits when I go to Las Vegas!
