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.

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…

7 More Modern Vegas Wedding Venues

It’s been a while since I did a venue roundup on the blog, so here are 7 more modern venues to consider for your Vegas wedding. Some are on Strip, some are off Strip so there is a good selection, and a range of budgets represented.

Be sure to check out the first part of this list: 8 Ultra-Chic, Modern Vegas Wedding Venues.

More Modern Vegas Wedding Venues and Chapels

1. Avant-Garde at The Wedding Chapel at ARIA

The color theme of the secluded chapel at ARIA is mostly neutral paired with rich purple draping and touches of wood and metallic detailing throughout. Rich fabrics and design the chapel feel like an extension of the sleek modern hotel it is within. The bridal suite and grooms ready room feature little treats like huge LCD TVs, pool tables and wet bars. Not only does this chapel host the latest in modern decor, it’s also technologically advanced and is LEED Gold certified for environmental sustainable practices.

You could get married in the exclusive one-wedding-at-a-time chapel, or choose to say your vows at a variety of other sophisticated venues including amongst the contemporary glass art at the Chihuly Gallery, in the cozy spa Fireside Lounge or infront of the Buddha statue within the north lobby glass contained atrium.

2. Contemporary Elegance at Silver Sky Chapel at The Quad

There are actually two chapels within the Silver Sky Chapel, Skyline and the smaller Sierra, but it’s the Skyline that features more modern decor. Dark wood floors with seating for 80 combined with custom uplighting (in several color options like green, red and blue) projected onto white voile draping give it a contemporary air at a budget price.

Something to keep in mind is that The Quad is a hotel that has been undergoing major renovations since 2012, and there may still be construction going on there through to 2014.

3. Total Flexibility at MEET Las Vegas

MEET, an extremely flexible event space downtown just a few blocks from Fremont Street is often used for conferences and meetings. However, they also do wedding bookings, both ceremonies and receptions. The best feature is its complete versatility and advanced built in technology and features.

You can choose to hold your wedding in a ground or second floor venue, or in their outdoor pavilion. Sleek concrete floors and an unimaginable selection of customization from the latest in audio, lighting, draping and aisle and seating arrangements make this space the perfect base to begin planning your dream event.

4. Modern Miami Vibe at Tropicana Las Vegas

Tropicana opened in 1957, but was recently renovated to give it a more updated, chic Miami South Beach feel, and this extends to the chapel as well.

In addition to the cute little beach house style chapel, Tropicana has expansive gardens with waterfalls and pools as well as wedding arches nestled amongst the foliage, enhancing the tropical feeling. There are three official locations for weddings: the Island Chapel seats up to 100 guests, and outdoor locations Island Arbor and Island Courtyard hold 30 and 150 guests, respectively. Weddings are also possible in conference rooms.

This is an excellent choice if you are looking for a modern wedding location that is on Strip and on budget.

5. Nature Inspired at Red Rock Resort

Red Rock Resort and Casino, located quite near to its namesake Red Rock Canyon, reflects the natural beauty of the mountains and geology in its design. Desert colors of warm ochres, ambers and oranges paired with natural materials give it a modern warmth.

Weddings can be set up in modern conference rooms or ballrooms, or on the outdoor patio venue that offers stunning views of the nearby mountains. There’s also the fabulous 180 Suite for a personal ceremony with an expansive view of Red Rock…

6. Unexpected Chic at MGM Grand

Although I would be hard pressed to call the busy wedding chapels at MGM Grand ‘modern’ (they’re more 1990s to me) venues at MGM Signature, the sister property, offer a variety of modern indoor and outdoor wedding setups.

The poolside Terraza, set against the mirror glass of the conference center, hosts 100 guests while smaller venues like the spa water wall feature at MGM Signature host up to 30 at standing ceremonies only.

Modern Vegas Wedding Venues - Wynn and Encore

7. Modern Zen at Wynn Las Vegas

With the proliferation of microblogging and social media in our everyday lives, there may be nothing more modern than absolute privacy. Although the regular chapels and gardens at Wynn Las Vegas have a refined exclusive feel, I think their newest ceremony option to get married in the Tranquility Hall inside the Encore Spa is ultra modern.

The ceremony, called the “Zen” package, actually takes place during off hours inside the main foyer of Encore’s Spa, which has an Eastern theme with Buddha statues, golden Moroccan inspired decor and plush Persian carpets. There is only enough room for a handful of guests to take part in your ultra exclusive elopement, making it a once in a lifetime memory for all involved.
