Halloween is just a month away, and judging by past weddings featured on Little Vegas Wedding, I know some of you are probably thinking about a fun horror-themed wedding! But what are the options in Vegas?
Get married in a ghost town This little desert town at Eldorado Canyon is a legitimate ghost town. All (okay, most) of the residents moved out after the gold rush went bust in the late 1800s. Here you will find a mix of beautiful desert landscape mixed with antiques and rustic architecture. No word on ghosts… Details, packages and pricing for weddings at Eldorado Canyon.
The gothic-style chapel at Artisan is a favorite for couples seeking a more dramatic wedding chapel option. The very moody theme of the chapel and lobby make for some fantastic wedding photos and style if you have a Halloween-themed wedding in mind. Details, packages and pricing at The Artisan.
Evil Dead musical wedding
It is possible to get married at this live musical show version of the cult classic film trilogy Evil Dead at Planet Hollywood. A Deadite officiant, a celebratory blood shower and a wedding on stage complete this experience. Details, packages and pricing at Evil Dead the Musical.
Zombies, vampires and more
Viva Las Vegas chapel hosts elaborate horror-themed weddings year-round. Vampires, zombies, graveyards and The Rocky Horror Picture show, they cover it all here. In fact, it was the site of a wedding for a fan of the Twilight wedding series a few weeks ago. The bride married a cardboard cut-out of star vampire Robert Pattinson. Details, packages and pricing at Viva Las Vegas.
Día de Muertos
Although not specifically Halloween themed, the Day of the Dead celebration happens around the same time. The rich culture of the day makes it a beautiful time to have a wedding and the theme creates some beautiful imagery. There are many options for hosting your own themed wedding at various locations around town.
Although it’s more of a garden wedding venue, The Grove hosted a very fabulous Halloween themed wedding last year when an English couple had their wedding plans jilted when the Goretorium closed. Vendors donated all the amazing details, including that incredible bloody heart cake, above, by Mitchie’s Munchies. Details, packages and pricing
You’re going to love today’s very timely Day of the Dead Vegas wedding – it’s anything but ordinary! It ticks so many fun, quirky boxes: rockabilly, Día de los Muertos, Elvis, pinup, DIY style, 1950s retro theme…and that’s just for starters. But, that’s what you get when two creative types get married!
Paige and Phil are birds of a feather from New York City – they’re both artists (you have to check out their illustrations and design work at The Art of Paigey and Ballsyart) who have super fun style. Looking through the photos I couldn’t help but feeling like I wanted to be there for the party!
Joined by 44 guests for their destination wedding, they were married by Elvis at the Viva Las Vegas wedding chapel, and then had a bridal shoot with Glitter Lens Photography at the Neon Boneyard before a restaurant reception at MGM Grand.
The wedding was full of totally personal style that reflected the special wedding date of November 2. There was even a soundtrack for the wedding – how cool is that? Paige and Phil asked their guests to dress in “retro spooky cocktail” style or “what you’d wear to Vincent Price’s funeral.”
Welcome to Throwback Thursday, when we delve into the archives of Las Vegas photographers, wedding vendors and wedding planner blogs to reveal weddings you may have missed.
Today is Halloween, of course! Here are some weddings that did not necessarily fall on Halloween, but featured Halloween style decor, gothic nuptials or Día de los Muertos details. There are a few parties and other inspirational links scattered in here as well, just for that extra kick of “boo!”
This totally adorable elopement comes to us today from Carmen Salazar, a photographer from Sacramento.
This December event features not just one but two Elvises (Elvii??), tequila shots, amazing photos taken on the colorful backdrops in downtown Las Vegas’ Arts District and some gorgeous isolated desert photos. What a beautiful range of images, and what a fun looking couple. I cannot get over the bride’s amazing boots.
The event was completely spontaneous, and was live broadcast on the internet so their moms could watch. The bride writes: “We had never planned on eloping but there just never seemed to be a perfect time to have a wedding, so we thought about it and decided to just do it ourselves in Vegas…”
I love the mini-shoot they did in the Arts District. It’s an amazing part of downtown Las Vegas, and is a place you should totally check out. It’s a favorite spot for photographers to go to for spunky engagement shots.
Stephanie’s boots were borrowed from her sister, and they are “Old Gringos.” Her dress and shawl were borrowed from the photographer.
