Every Monday this year we are highlighting a unique Vegas wedding venue in the Ultimate Vegas Wedding Guide! Today it’s the elegant, vintage venues of The Smith Center near downtown Las Vegas.

Just the Deets
The Smith Center for the Performing Arts is one of Las Vegas’s most unique remarkable venues, and is mainly a world class theatre and concert venue that just happens to host weddings from time to time. The Smith Center boasts a number of features including packages with rentals included, well-appointed halls with incredible architectural details in limestone, bronze and wood. The art-deco style architecture, inspired by the design of the nearby Hoover Dam, was designed to evoke a sense of the 1920s & 1930s.

Indoor and outdoor spaces are available, and as one might expect for a theatre venue, there are grand stages and awesome acoustics. The venue offers configurations that can accommodate wedding parties as intimate as seven guests, all the way up to grand affairs for 1,200. You can view floorplans and capacity details here.

Venue fees for exclusive use of the Reynolds Hall, Grand Lobby, Mezzanine and Upper Lobby: $6,500. The Courtyard, Symphony Park and Troesh Studio Theater are $4,500.
