If you can’t get down with conventional tulle wedding gowns and gaudy diamonds, you’ll fall in love with Alanna Pearl and ShelbySells’s Vegas elopement. The newly weds skipped de rigueur wedding confections and opted for cowboy hats, lace, platforms, and Elvis. And the icing on the cake? Alanna and Shelby are true best friends. The eclectic pair met six years ago in Los Feliz and have been inseparable since–and they always knew they were going to tie the knot. So when fate struck, Alanna and Shelby got hitched–and we got an inside look on the ultimate Vegas road trip wedding.

“I never imagined having someone I feel so comfortable with and I want to grow with. She inspires me on the daily and has shaped me into being a loving person, open to accepting new conditions, and always challenging myself.” — Alanna

“There are no ceilings for our love train.” — Shelby
