5 Best Wedding Venues with a View Las Vegas | Little Vegas Wedding

Today’s venue spotlight falls on my five favorite rooftop wedding venues in Las Vegas. On Strip or off Strip, the city is full of amazing viewpoints with romantic sparkly lights and a birds eye view of one of the busiest streets in America. 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.

Weddings with a View | Little Vegas Wedding

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.

Caesars Palace Garden Elopement from Taylored Photo Memories

Caesars Palace Elopement | Little Vegas Wedding
Joy and Jeff chose Las Vegas for a small wedding, with just their closest friends and family attending. They did not even spend the night in Las Vegas! The couple flew into Vegas in the morning, had lunch, married and then headed back home to Tennessee. They chose to marry right on the Strip, in one of the architectural domes that is outside Caesars Palace. Short, sweet and to the point…a perfectly modern Vegas elopement!

More from their photographer, Taylored Photo Memories:

Eloping couple Joy and Jeff wanted their “second time around” wedding to be simple and fun so Las Vegas was the natural destination choice. They selected the Caesars Palace rotunda and gardens for their intimate ceremony amongst a small group of friends and family. Their stress-free elopement was actually quite a whirlwind; they flew in from Memphis to Vegas where they had lunch, got married, and flew back home shortly after. 

The beauty of eloping is that it can be whatever you want it to be. I have couples come from all over the world to elope in Las Vegas and each one may have a different background or back story but they share the common desire for a fun, memorable and stress-free wedding. Some couples make a vacation out of it and take in the sights, while others embrace the hassle-free ease of planning a Vegas elopement, like Joy and Jeff, and simply go home after their ceremony with the memories of an amazing intimate elopement.

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 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.

Romantic Mandalay Bay Chapel Wedding from Leandra Elaine Photography

Mandalay Bay Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding Today’s wedding pairs the gorgeous Mandalay Bay chapel with a little touch of desert beauty. Together they make an amazing combination for Amanda and Daniel’s Vegas wedding. With a classic black and white and red color theme and rose accents this wedding was filled with little touches of old Hollywood glamour.

As you know Mandalay Bay is an MGM property, and they do not allow outside photography of their wedding ceremonies, so there are no ceremony photos in this post, but the photos of getting ready and the amazing bridal portraits were too gorgeous not to share. I’m totally in love with Amanda’s dress!

WHY LAS VEGAS?

We chose Las Vegas for something different and exciting. Daniel and I had never been there together. We are both people that live to go out, have fun and just enjoy life. What better way then to start a new chapter in Las Vegas than getting married?

THE CEREMONY — Mandalay Bay

We chose Mandalay Bay for the beauty of the place. They were also so open to concerns and answering our questions. It just felt like they really cared about making our day as special as possible.

THE RECEPTION — Buca di Beppo at Excalibur

Our celebration dinner  was with the 40 family and friends that attended our special day. We had it at Buca di Beppo located in Excalibur.

FAVORITE MEMORY

Our desert photoshoot was absolutely amazing. We had an awesome photographer that had mentioned the idea to us and we thought it would be something totally different then just having regular ceremony pictures. It had rained the night before and the clouds were just not lifting enough to get the exact photos that we wanted in the morning. As we drove out the the desert around 4pm the fog had lifted just enough to capture amazing shots of the two of us.

Chihuly Gallery and Aria Suite Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding | Sergio Mottola Photography

Chihuly Gallery at Aria Las Vegas

Dale Chihuly is the artist responsible for that amazing glass sculpture inside Bellagio (and in a few other Strip hotels). He also has an ultra-modern gallery space at Aria featuring his incredible work in a contemporary setting. The gallery is well-suited for ceremonies as well as long-table style receptions for around 50 guests.

Neon Museum Wedding | Little Vegas Wedding

The Boneyard at The Neon Museum

We can’t talk about museums without mentioning an incredible part of Las Vegas history: The Neon Museum! This outdoors walk-through museum is home to hundreds of neon signs from throughout Las Vegas history, providing an industrial-chic setting with a vintage backdrop for your vows. It’s popular for wedding photos, but getting married here (especially at night with the signs turned on) would be perfect for any Vegas, architecture or design fans.

Wedding Venues at DISCOVERY Children's Museum | LIttle Vegas Wedding

Discovery Children’s Museum

I think museums angled to kids are a fabulous space to get married in. They’re unique, playful and memorable! Las Vegas has the wonderful DISCOVERY Children’s Museum which features several different exhibit halls and stage venues perfect for a one-of-a-kind wedding. Who says getting married has to be an grownup affair, anyways?

Origen Rotunda at Springs Preserve

Set on 180-acres just a few miles off The Strip, Springs Preserve is a museum featuring desert botanical gardens, family events, traveling exhibits, trails and — you guessed it — weddings. There is an amazing array of outdoor spaces and gardens, but the Origen Museum Rotunda is the most gallery-style space. It features a high vaulted ceiling, and a room ringed with kinetic granite sculptures floating on water and sculptured cattails, all etched with the names of museum donors.

Mob Museum Vegas Wedding

The Mob Museum

Not only is The Mob Museum (National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement) a symbol representing a colorful part of Las Vegas history, it’s a fun place to get married! The architecturally important building (a former US Postal Office and federal courthouse) is a gorgeous reminder of the early days of Vegas and offers some unique venue spaces within, like an accurate replica courtroom.
