Swank Wedding in a Palms SkyVilla | Apaige Photography

Palms SkyVilla | Little Vegas Wedding
Ah, Las Vegas. City of views. For some, nothing but a suite overlooking the iconic Bellagio fountains will do. But I think the view is better just a few blocks off the Strip from a hotel such as Hard Rock, MGM Signature or today’s feature hotel: Palms. Watching the lights flicker on as the sun goes down is an amazing sight. I’ve long been curious about the suites high in the sky at Palms with their cantilevered pools hanging off the edge so precariously. Today’s reception brings you right into those amazing SkyVillas.

Madi and Tim ditched their traditional wedding when planning got too intense. Opting for a huge suite and a small guestlist, they exchanged vows in just a few minutes at Chapel of the Flowers, barely pausing the party on the bus to do so. I love the energy these two bring and am so happy to be finally sharing their wedding. (Seriously, I’ve been putting this post off forever, I’m so excited to finally hit publish!)

And if you can’t get enough of this suite, head back in the archives for this other feature wedding in a SkyVilla.

WHY LAS VEGAS?

Originally we had a huge wedding planned at home, with a down payment on the venue and everything. It was becoming too stressful doing the guest list, seating arrangements, centerpiece designs and everything else. Vegas has always been special to my husband and I so one morning when we woke up I just asked, “Do you want to get married in Vegas?” He replied, “I thought you’d never ask!”

THE CEREMONY — CHAPEL OF THE FLOWERS

It was perfect: five minutes, in and out. We said our “I dos” and go back on the party bus.

THE RECEPTION — SKYVILLA AT PALMS

Our reception was magical. We stayed in the Palms SkyVilla. It’s 6,000-sq.-ft. with a pool hanging off of the side. We served In-N-Out Burgers and Chronic Tacos, the best reception food ever.

FAVORITE MEMORY

Honestly, I can’t choose a favorite memory, it was the best day of my life. If I had to choose one it would possibly be twirling under these huge pillars on the Strip with my husband. Just the Strip in general, actually. And of course the fantastic villa with a butler, and having 30 of our closest friends and family there. See, I couldn’t pick just one!

A TIP FOR YOUR VEGAS WEDDING FROM MADI AND TIM

DON’T PLAN. Book a room, get a reservation for where you want to get married…and enjoy the moment. Nothing else needs to be planned. Your wedding should be stress-free, it should only be about love, laughter and happiness. Vegas is the perfect place to get married if you want to have the best wedding ever.

Pretty in Purple at Silverton’s Veil Pavilion | Taylored Photo Memories

Veil Pavilion at Silverton | Little Vegas Wedding

Amanda and Kevin infused their wedding day with casual country style in a royal purple palette. After getting ready, the bridal party moved over for the ceremony at St. Joseph Husband of Mary Roman Catholic Church.

The reception was held in the rustic Silverton Hotel and Casino, which has a special wedding and events pavilion called Veil. The room was decorated with burlap, Mason jars and an incredible “wood” barrel cake. Perfect venue choice for this romantic wedding.

More from the photography, Taylored Photo Memories:

Amanda and Kevin chose the Veil Pavilion at the Silverton Hotel & Casino because to them it was the perfect fit. Desiring a rustic/country reception which reflected their down to earth personalities and was warm and welcoming for all of their guests, they were initially charmed by the antler chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. After visiting various other venues during their research, they also discovered that the Veil Pavilion had the largest dance floor among the contenders. For a couple who love to dance, this was an important element in creating the inclusive celebratory atmosphere that they were looking to achieve at their reception.

Today’s venue spotlight falls on my five favorite rooftop wedding venues in Las Vegas.

Great views from stunning heights, here are five of my favorite venues for gettin’ high at your wedding in Las Vegas.

Foundation Room and House of Blues Las Vegas | Las Vegas Wedding

House of Blues Foundation Room, Mandalay Bay

This venue perched 43 floors up at the top of Mandalay Bay has an incredible view north up the Strip from one of the most southern hotels upon it. With intimate indoor venues an option, the one I like best is the Mandalay Patio with an open air view that will bring gasps to your wedding guests. (And those scared of heights to their knees, possibly.) Simply stunning.

Eastside Cannery One Six Lounge | Little Vegas Wedding Venue Guide

One Six Sky Lounge at Eastside Cannery

An off Strip casino and hotel, the jewel in its crown is the 16th floor ballroom/nightclub called One Six Sky Lounge perfect for private events. More than 300 guests can catch sweeping views of north Las Vegas and the Strip from the floor to ceiling windows and enjoy the modern lounge-like atmosphere accessed via private elevator.

VooDoo Lounge at Rio

Another off Strip view vantage point, VooDoo Lounge at Rio Hotel and Suites offer the usual range of hotel ballrooms and amenities the VooDoo lounge, 51 stories up really shines. Your wedding ceremony can be set against a panoramic view from an open air bar looking at The Strip, but must place between 10am and 2pm, with a 75 guest maximum. Receptions are a possibility, but again, must take place during the day, as the bar is so popular at night.

Tahiti Village | Little Vegas Wedding Venue Guide

Skyview 510 at Tahiti Village

One of the more economical choices for a wedding in Vegas, Tahiti Village is a timeshare just south of the Strip. It offers a beautiful view of the nearby airport as well as the neon and lights of the Strip in the distance. Skyview 510 is a traditional ballroom with two attached patios for up to 100 guests is on the 10th floor, so it is high…but not too high!

Ferris Wheel Wedding Vegas | Little Vegas Wedding

High Roller at The LINQ

The newest sky-high wedding venue in Las Vegas, the supersized Ferris wheel offers quickie wedding ceremonies from one of the 28 modern observation pods. Say your I Dos from 520 feet in the sky (currently the world’s tallest observation wheel) before you come back down to Earth again. The least expensive packages start from $2145.

Today’s venue spotlight falls on my five favorite garden wedding venues in Las Vegas.

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 Weddings at JW Marriott Las Vegas | Little Vegas Wedding

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.

The Seascape Ballroom is a unique waterside wedding venue in Las Vegas: it’s actually under water! Located within the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, this venue will allow you to go under the sea with your guests as they watch sharks and other sealife swim past the reception. Incredible and unforgettable.

Wedding at Hyde at Bellagio

Hyde Nightclub at Bellagio

Oh, those famous Bellagio fountains! The romance of this location ranks it highly for not only wedding ceremonies, but for engagements, too. Although the fountains and replica of Lake Como they are in can host weddings from many locations, get up close and personal with them inside the luxe Hyde Nightclub. The iconic fountains can be timed perfectly with your vows, dancing behind you as you share your first kiss.
