5 Favorites: Garden Wedding Venues in Las Vegas

Best Garden Wedding Venues  | LIttle Vegas Wedding

Today’s venue spotlight falls on my five favorite garden wedding venues in Las Vegas. Despite being in a desert, Las Vegas takes gardening seriously, with many gorgeous parks, venues and botanical gardens to enjoy. From traditional gardens to more desert, xeric landscaped ones, check out these options!

Venus Garden Caesars Palace | Little Vegas Wedding Venue Guide

Venus Gardens at Caesars Palace

Caesars Palace has a few options for garden weddings, but Venus Gardens catches my eye because of the perfect combination of classic Roman architecture and privacy. It’s a little bit themed, but in a classy way.

Beautiful additions like a domed temple, stone bench seating, tiled aisle (say that three times fast!) and a koi pond add special little details and make this garden a true gem. If you catch it at the right time of year, the garden is exploding with flowers. This is one of the larger garden options, seating up to 114 people, and Caesars also permits outside photographers.

Frame House at Springs Preserve

With more than 180 acres featuring an amazing array of walking paths and nature trails, Frame House at Springs Preserve is just one of my favorite venues for a wedding. In fact, I’m not sure where to start: there are more than 10 garden/outdoor venue choices at the Springs for weddings! Although I was married at the Gardens Arboretum, these days I’m more partial to Frame House.

This intimate covered space is nestled amongst some of the prettiest floral displays in the garden, and very near to cactus alley. It’s quiet, private and can be very green — yet is protected from the midday sun. Just lovely for wedding ceremonies of up to 45 guests.

Garden Romance at Venetian

Although the canals and faux Venice-style facades of the shopping mall get all the attention, there are some truly lovely European terraced gardens around the pools at Venetian. For smaller elopements and weddings, the Garden Romance package offers a standing room only ceremony for 10 guests set in a side garden of the Venezia Courtyard. This romantic spot has you surrounded by hedges and lush greenery as well as Italian-style sculptures. Of course, the one downside is that like many other Strip hotels, they will not allow you to use an outside photographer.

Garden Gazebo at JW Marriott Las Vegas

With an extraordinary 54 acres of landscaped grounds, gardens and waterscapes to choose from, weddings at JW Marriott are hard NOT to have in a gorgeous garden! The Garden Gazebo combines a beautiful structure as a backdrop for your vows, while still surrounded by the amazing landscaping. Perfect for weddings of 80 to 200 people, this is a great off Strip venue for slightly larger weddings.

Emerald at Queensridge

Another off Strip choice, Emerald at Queensridge is an all-in-one banquet facility that just so happens to have an elegant garden for wedding ceremonies. Get ready on-site in the luxurious facilities before you walk the aisle under huge trees, then head inside to celebrate in the chic (and high-tech!) ballroom setting. The courtyard is beautiful not only for ceremonies but for photos, too, and looks beautiful day or night.

Amanda and Skyler’s Modern Destination Wedding at Emerald at Queensridge from Davin G Photography

Emerald at Queensridge Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding

Amanda and Skyler, a couple of Canadians, were wed this December in a ceremony and reception at Emerald at Queensridge. This modern, all-in-one ceremony and reception venue just off The Strip is a great place to set it and forget it – all the details are taken care of, and you can enjoy the day as you get ready in the fantastic bridal salon areas. The palette of red, white and black for this affair is stunningly modern – especially on Amanda’s gown. A gorgeous choice for a chic nighttime garden wedding!

More from Davin, the photographer:
The wedding was held at Emerald at Queensridge, one of Vegas’ premier Banquet & Event Caterers. I was thrilled when asked by Amanda if I would shoot her wedding even though her wedding package included an in-house wedding photographer. Amanda’s dress was absolutely stunning & perfectly complemented their Vegas wedding! The hall was beautifully decorated with white linens, black bows around the chairs, & hints of red (including red wall-lighting which surrounded the banquet hall) – the perfect colors for a Vegas wedding!

The night time ceremony took place outside & was illuminated by gorgeous tree-lighting & heat lamps which kept the guests warm. Although a quick ceremony, it was very special especially when Amanda walked down the aisle with her two daughters. Because their package included an in-house wedding photographer, I didn’t end up photographing the entire wedding like I normally would. Instead, I left the formals & dancing photos to the banquet’s photographer & danced the night away…which was no problem.

Emerald at Queensridge is an all inclusive wedding hall destination, with a beautiful garden for outdoor ceremonies and a hall for banquets and all night dancing! Shameka and Kenyatta held their spring wedding there recently, with McKenzi of Taylored Photo Memories there to document the day, along with cinematographers Memory Lane Video. (Check out their sneak peek clip below!)

There are so many great ideas in this wedding – pops of bright orange, blinged out custom Converse wedding shoes, flowing orange jumpsuits for the bridesmaids, a candy bar and an absolutely awesome wedding cake featuring engagement photos (see that session also photographed by Taylored Photo Memories at Eldorado Canyon here!) and quotes written on it. Such a great way to use pictures from an engagement session!

Shameka’s aunt designed the floral bouquets, boutonnieres and pomanders, as well as the wedding wands in those brilliant orange tones. I love the shots of the party later on – Emerald at Queensridge has a custom light setup so that you can change the lighting in the hall and I think it just adds to the awesome reception this wedding had going on.

One of the coolest things about Emerald at Queensridge is their fantastic getting ready rooms for the wedding party – lots of space and mirrored makeup stations for the ladies, big screen TVs and a PS3 for the gents!
