Sky High Weddings: 18 Vegas Venues With a View

Skyhigh Vegas Wedding Venues with a View: Rooftops, Patios and More!

Party on the rooftop and dance the night away at your reception with a clear view of the lights and action of the one and only Las Vegas Strip: let’s talk rooftop weddings in Las Vegas!

When I first started to compose this post, I truly believed there were just a handful of venues that would allow you to host a Vegas wedding with a birds eye view of the city. Truth of the matter is, there are dozens of them, suitable for every size and budget, and scattered across the city with a variety of views.

These venues allow for indoor and outdoor rooftop, patio and sometimes even poolside weddings and receptions.

Of course, if you are afraid of heights a wedding in the sky may not be the best choice, but sweeping views of the lights of the Strip and a complete feeling of being on top of the world combines for an absolutely unforgettable experience for your wedding. And maybe you can conquer those fears…

Unless otherwise specified, most of these venues offer combined indoor and open air, outdoor spaces, and are available for ceremonies or receptions – or both!

Elopement Up in the Clouds {Stratosphere Las Vegas}

stratosphere wedding vegas

Kourtney and Josh were married at Stratosphere’s Chapel in the Clouds, up high above Vegas! This little elopement was adorable – from the bride’s chic short dress to the gorgeous ringlets in her hair, all captured by Alabama based photographer Fotowerks. Although due to Stratosphere’s contract Fotowerks could not actually shoot the wedding ceremony inside the chapel, the getting ready photos and post-ceremony photos are lovely. Those ones up on the observation deck of Stratosphere kind of make me nervous though…looks a little windy!

The newly wed couple went for a little photo tour afterwards, heading off mid Strip to the Bellagio for some romantic fountain wedding pictures. And how did they get there? In an armoured car limo rental. So crazy cool for this cute little couple.

9 Thrillingly Unique Vegas Wedding Venues: Skydiving, Scuba Diving and More!

Some of us love adrenaline more than others, and for those people, I recommend one of these totally awesome, totally exciting Las Vegas wedding ceremony venues. They’re for the couple who wants something even more memorable than a Las Vegas wedding, something a little out of the ordinary, something CRAZY!

We’re on a ride!

Roller Coaster Ceremony: Perhaps not the best for anxious or nervous brides and grooms, NY NY offers a roller coaster wedding. Getting wed at 67 miles per hour sound up your alley? With limited windows available you can get married in 15 minutes at a cost of about $600-$700.

Thrill Ride Wedding: If roller coasters are too tame for you, maybe you’d prefer to get married on the edge of the tallest building in Las Vegas while on a ride. The Stratosphere Chapel in the Clouds offers wedding ceremonies on the observation deck of the Stratosphere tower, then a ride on one of the rides they have 855 feet above the Strip. Packages ($339-429) include champagne, tower admission for 15 guests, a thrill ride on Big Shot, Insanity or X-Scream for four guests. Photography is extra.

We’re on a boat!

Pirate Ship Wedding: T.I. (Treasure Island) in Las Vegas has a unique wedding for those of you who love cannons, sexy pirates and ships – “Song Ship Wedding“. This package ($1675-$3760+) allows the couple and two guests onto the ship at Siren’s Cove along the Strip for their ceremony, with room for other guests within 100 feet of the ship. There is a bit of pirate pomp and circumstance involved in the nuptials, so this is a bit themed more than exciting, but no telling when the Captain may swing in and try to snatch the bride away. No word on if a puffy shirt are mandatory for the groom.

Yacht Wedding: Not far from Las Vegas is Lake Mead, and that would make for a great day on the water, getting married on a yacht ($1300-$7000+) and partying after the fact, maybe even on a jet ski rental. Another excellent option would be to rent a houseboat for some time, have the ceremony and get to spend some time with a group of people playing on the water before and after the wedding.

We’re almost in a boat!

Silverton Scuba Diving Wedding: The Silverton casino, a little ways off the Strip offers a unique package that allows a couple to get hitched while scuba diving amongst 4000 fish, stingrays and sharks in their amazing 117,000-gallon aquarium. You can even request mermaids to serve as bridesmaids. Crazy!

Mandalay Bay Shark Reef Wedding: If you’d prefer to wear more traditional wedding attire as opposed to a wetsuit, you can get married beside the sharks at the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef. The package ($1500-1600) includes fees, champagne and a honeymoon suite. There are no outside photographers. The ceremony can only happen at 9am, before the aquarium opens to the public, and there is only room for 10 witnesses.

We’re in the air!

How about taking the plunge while flying through the air? Vegas Extreme Skydiving offers wedding packages to those who are truly seeking thrills ($1299+) While you do not actually get married while in the air, it is up to you if you want to get married on the ground then take the leap together, or do it after you’ve safely landed.

Helicopter Wedding: There is also the option to ride a helicopter to your wedding destination, ensuring privacy, and a thrilling memory to have forever. I’m told the views are also pretty special as well, both from the helicopter or the destination you touch down at to say your vows at, like the Grand Canyon or Red Rock Canyon. (Several companies offer this service) For photos from real Las Vegas helicopter weddings, check some out here!

We’re wearing runners!

A Marathon Wedding: Just this past weekend, the Las Vegas Rock n Roll marathon happened, and did you know they do weddings during it? Although they recommend it is for vow renewals, people have gotten hitched in the very quick (who wants to ruin their running time?) group ceremony. It happens at 5:45 outside NY NY Casino, and is free for entrants.

This list is certainly not the limit of what amazing wedding ceremonies you can have in Las Vegas. What’s your favorite Vegas wedding venue for adventure seeking couples?
