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
There’s just something about Las Vegas weddings that I think attract the coolest, most eclectic couples. Risk-takers, trendsetters and just generally awesome people, you know? I wasn’t able to get in touch with today’s couple for the interview as they are so incredibly busy, but I wanted to share their extraordinary wedding nonetheless. Extraordinary how? A dove grey wedding dress, amazing shoes, an incredibly stylish wedding party crew and a venue that fits so perfectly for this couple, it’s unreal.
Wendy and Jim had been married for 20 years when they decided it was time to REALLY get married. While they had never had a traditional wedding, they pulled together their friends and family to make their wedding day dream a reality at their vow renewal.
After getting ready at Vdara, they chose the gothy, appropriately art-themed boutique hotel The Artisan for their handfasting, vow renewal and wedding reception. A belly dancer entertained and a custom cake based on Tony Duquette’s designs enthralled. The elaborate cake (from Aracelli Zea Cake Studio) with vibrant colors and artistic shapes was a showstopper!
Why the DC Comics merchandise? Jim is a well-known comic book artist who has worked with DC in the past. Ever heard of Batwoman? Yeah. That well-known.
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 is the first wedding from the Artisan hotel I’ve featured on LVW, but I hope there are more to come!
Casey and Tommy’s wedding was shot by Mary Meyer, and I think that the photos really highlight the drama at the event. The candlelit details at the reception, the bold black and white colors, oil portraits in the background, the drama of walking down a wedding aisle hovering over a pool…
LOVE that the guy got to drink Pappy’s bourbon. That stuff is harder to find than a needle in a haystack these days…
