The Neon Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying, and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, and cultural enrichment. The museum houses a large collection of historic signs from the Las Vegas Valley, spanning the decades, representing hotels, casinos, business and other iconic signage that have graced Las Vegas history. They are a museum first and foremost and conduct guided tours through the museum boneyard daily and nightly, but they are also a popular spot for wedding portraits, engagement shoots and now: weddings and receptions!

With the opening of the new La Concha Visitor’s Center, the Neon Museum features event space perfect for parties and receptions. A new 3,500 sq. ft. outdoor event space located adjacent to the Neon Boneyard offers versatility as well as a striking visual background for events and functions, while the smaller 2,500 sq. ft. Neon Boneyard Park and the 600 sq. ft. La Concha Visitor’s Center offer convenient alternative locations for smaller parties.

The Neon Museum maintains a roster of preferred vendors including caterers, photographers, and special event planners to assist guests in organizing and executing their functions.  While tours of the Neon Boneyard are not included as part of the museum’s standard events package, abbreviated tours may be added to certain events for additional fees.  We can host wedding event for just the couple, small and intimate for the couple and four guests, or receptions up to 400.

What’s Special?
If you are a design geek, love the history of Las Vegas, or are just looking for a quirky, somewhat industrial and retro spot for your wedding, the Neon Museum will strike a lot of the right chords. Beautifully lit at night, the historic, weathered signs are a striking backdrop to your wedding, and limit the need for additional decor. They also make for fabulous photo opportunities!

Factor In 

  • For smaller elopements, you might consider the “Quick Wedding Package” where you and your significant other plus up to four guests attend a wedding officiated by Elegant Vegas Weddings. You may bring your own photographer. At the conclusion of the ceremony, you receive a pair of exclusive Neon Museum wedding themed t-shirts, a bottle of chilled champagne/sparkling wine, and a pair of wedding cupcakes packaged to go.
  • Catering at the Neon Museum is all handled through one of our four Exclusive Caterers only.  Please contact them directly for rates and availability: Di Vine Events, Renaissance Catering, Catering by Bleu, & Art of Cooking.
  • The Neon Museum also has a contract with Elegant Vegas Weddings, who are the exclusive officiates for all weddings, commitment ceremonies and vow renewals at the site.
  • If you are only interested in hosting a photo shoot at the property, you must book at least two weeks out, and follow a stringent application procedure

Definitely different, the Discovery Children’s Museum is an offbeat, one-of-a-kind choice when it comes to spaces for your Vegas wedding. It’s perfect for the young at heart and whimsical couples, as it’s a three-story museum packed with crazy colors, imaginative displays and interactive exhibits promoting science, art and culture.

The venue best suited to hosting wedding ceremonies is likely Fantasy Festival, a theatre-style event with a stage for puppet shows you can get married on. Receptions are best in the 5,000 square foot Traveling Exhibit Hall. However, the entire museum is available for customization and the special events staff will work with you to find the best set-up for you. A full museum buyout is $10,000 and can hold up to 1,000 guests, for a five hour event.

Fantasy Festival

What’s Special?

  • A very one-of-a-kind experience, and that’s saying something in Las Vegas!
  • The venue just opened in 2013 and not many weddings have been held there yet so there is an exclusivity to it
  • On top of the space, also included are: standard house lighting, 5′ round banquet tables  and standard ceremony chairs as available

Factor In

  • Excellent photo taking opportunities not only in the museum, but nearby in downtown Las Vegas, at The Smith Center and Symphony Park or in the arts district
  • Due to constraints on food and beverage licenses, you must use preferred vendors if you wish to serve food or liquor on the property. Vendors include Masterpiece Cuisine, Art of Catering by Vic Vegas, Divine Events and Liquid Courage and but are subject to change. Check with Discovery for the latest list
  • All decorations must be freestanding with no pins, nails, staples or tapes of any kind are permitted on any walls or floors inside DISCOVERY Children’s Museum. No birdseed, glitter or confetti and no pyrotechnics, haze/smoke/fog effects or decorative open flame (candles) are permissible
  • On the other hand, you won’t need much decoration. The space really is amazing!

Las Vegas is probably the best spot to really wear what you want to on your wedding day. It might be a downtown vintage era wedding that would suit a full skirted tea-style little white gown. Or perhaps a luxury lounge ceremony that can support a fashion forward and high drama wedding gown label, much like today’s styled bridal shoot. The city can support so many gorgeous looks and styles!

An Outdoor Theatre Inspired Wedding at Westin Lake Las Vegas

A Theatrical Blue and Yellow Westin Lake Las Vegas Wedding | j anne photography

The first thing I noticed from today’s wedding? The bride Ashley’s absolutely dazzling smile. Every single photo, it looks like she is having the time of her life – and so does everyone else attending. This destination wedding photographed by  j. anne photography at Westin Lake Las Vegas transformed the stunning hotel venue into a theatre, if only for one night.

A palette of vibrant marine blue with pops of yellow energized the overall theme which combined theatre inspired and art deco details. The bride, who is a professional dancer, came to Las Vegas with her husband all the way from Australia. I love the “costume change” part way through the reception – Ashley exchanges her full ballroom style tulle skirt for a sexier, more fitted version!
