Ultimate Vegas Wedding Venue Guide: Restaurants for Small Receptions (Part Two: South Strip)

Every Monday this year we are highlighting a unique Vegas wedding venue in the Ultimate Vegas Wedding Guide! Today the focus is on restaurant receptions on the south Strip.

Restaurant receptions are common for many smaller Vegas weddings, as almost every Las Vegas restaurant offers some kind of private dining, and they make it easy to host a reception for 30 or fewer people. Instead of everyone swimming in a room that is too large for the group, these restaurants tailorsized their venues to smaller groups. You get all the benefits of the restaurant’s decor and location in addition to customized menus, the ambience, service and privacy.

Here are five of my favorite restaurants on the south end (and center) of The Strip for wedding receptions of up to 30 guests. You can read Part One: North Strip restaurants here.

Chic Chef’s Table Wedding Reception at Jean Georges Steakhouse, Las Vegas

Vegas Restaurant Wedding Reception | Taylored Photo Memories

Following their traditional vows in the tiny Little Church of the West, Sophia and Tianliang had a couple’s shoot on The Strip with Taylored Photo Memories. Sophia changed out of her white gown and veil she wore for the ceremony, exchanging traditional wedding wear for a blazing red wrap dress for the photos, which took place in front of the romantic scenes of Caesars Palace, Bellagio and Paris Las Vegas. Although chapel packages often come with included photography, a couple’s shoot with another photographer is a great way to inject some individuality and get a set of more personal photographs.

Post-photos the couple celebrated with family and friends at the private chef’s table inside Aria’s Jean Georges Steakhouse. Elegantly decorated with black and orange walls, silverware chandeliers, the room also provides diners a peek into the kitchen through windows!

The wedding party celebrated with style at this very modern reception, dining on a tasting menu with imaginative signature Jean Georges dishes like Almas Ara caviar with Meyer lemon gelee, crème fraiche and dill and tender Australian wagyu beef filet mignon in a soy-garlic marinade. A feast fit for foodies!

Congratulations, Sophia and Tianliang!

A Very Modern Elopement {Aria}

Aria Las Vegas exudes this sort of cool, calm glamour with architectural highlights and completely modern details. So it makes sense that an extremely fashionable couple from New York City would choose to elope there!

Stephanie and Brandon had their ceremony in a penthouse suite in Aria, did dinner at Jean Georges Steakhouse (complete with a Freed’s cake – the same people who did the cake for Stephanie’s mom’s wedding years before) and then did a shoot with photographer Brian Leahy all over the property. She wore a Nicole Miller gown and he wore a completely ensemble by Burberry Prorsum. Feast your eyes on this completely chic, couture wedding.

Loving the circles Brian Leahy captured in these photos. My eye was immediately drawn to them.

Bride Stephanie looked fabulous in her Nicole Miller dress. Rock those curls, girl. Brandon was incredible in that Burberry Prorsum suit.

That wedding party wins for most fashionable, ever.

Circles again!

Check out a few more photos from this chic wedding on Brian Leahy’s blog!
