There’s a lot to consider when choosing the perfect venue for your dream wedding: Cost, space and, of course, how the venue will look in photos. The following list of #nofilter Las Vegas wedding venues will please your guests and look amazing on camera.
Best Venue for a Waterfront Wedding: Lake Las Vegas
Walk down the aisle on a white sand beach at Reflection Bay Golf course on Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada – about a 30-minute drive from the Strip. The glassy lake and rolling green hills make for a scenic backdrop that will leave Facebook friends admiring your wedding album and wondering, “Is that really Las Vegas?!” For the best shots, schedule your ceremony for sunset, when the mountains shade a deep purple and the pink sky reflects across the water.
Best Venue for a Luxury Wedding: Wynn Las Vegas
Exchange handwritten wedding vows in the primrose garden, or opt for a more traditional ceremony in the Wynn’s indoor wedding chapel. Decorated in creamy colors with subtle floral accents, the chapel’s neutral interior will balance nicely with your chosen color theme. Both the Wynn’s outdoor and indoor ceremony venues have excellent lighting, ensuring the bright flowers in your photos will really “pop” and guests’ faces won’t be shadowed.
Best Venue for a Garden Wedding: Springs Preserve
Say “I do” in a fairytale grove of trees and greenery at the enchanting Springs Preserve. Located just three miles from downtown Las Vegas, this 180-acre botanical garden has all the prerequisites for a photographic wedding venue: A garden gazebo and arboretum, an elegant, airy banquet hall and a uniquely Southwestern cocktail hour setting—“Cactus Alley.” Guests can pose for selfies among an alley of towering, tree-like saguaro cacti, vibrant red and orange succulents and a gigantic watering can art sculpture
Best Venue for a Rooftop Wedding: Enclave
Kiss your groom or bride on a rooftop as the lights from the Vegas Strip twinkle in the background at Enclave, one of Vegas’ newest and most unique wedding venues. The 75,000-square-foot event center, which includes a garden and modern ballroom, is located just one mile from the Strip and was a 2017 Wedding Spot Award Winner.
Best Venue for a Unique Wedding: The Neon Museum
Declare your love and commitment in front of friends, family and 150 famous neon signs at the Neon Museum, a neon sign “boneyard” that has become the final resting place for the valley’s population of vintage hotel and business signs. For the best photo ops, recite a love poem in front of the Lady Luck sign, steal a kiss next to the vintage wedding chapel sign or toss your bouquet as the “Sassy” sign glows orange in the background.
Best Venue for an Intimate Wedding: Chapel of the Flowers
Tie the knot in the adorable and cozy Chapel of the Flowers (seating accommodates 88 guests, max). Frommer’s declared this historic chapel “the best spot in Las Vegas for a traditional wedding.” Though Chapel of the Flowers offers three different ceremony venues, the whimsical Glass Gardens chapel space is by far the most picturesque. The chapel is entirely indoors, but with its skyline, green garden altar and tree-lined pews, it won’t feel like it.
Best Venue for a Tropical Wedding: Island Chapel at Tropicana
Sashay to the altar in the warm desert breeze as potted palms sway and sunlight streams through the chapel’s skyline. Airy and open, the whitewashed wooden Island Chapel at Tropicana evokes the feeling of a pineapple plantation on a steamy, sun-drenched Pacific island. For a splash of color, blanket the aisle with purple orchids or yellow rose petals.
Best Venue for a Quirky Wedding: The Artisan Hotel
Pledge your love among a garden of art in a “gothic-meets-Europe ambiance” at the boutique hotel, The Artisan. With dark wood paneling and drapes, plush velvet furniture and hundreds of artistic reproductions from famous artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso, this French castle-inspired setting provides endless inspiration for your Instagram feed. The Artisan also offers guests the option of renting the entire hotel for just $8,500, which includes 63 rooms, a lounge and bar, a private dining room, an outdoor patio, a pool and an indoor and outdoor wedding chapel.
Best Venue for a Beach-themed Wedding: Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay
Say “I do” as fish, sea turtles and 15 species of sharks bear witness at the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay. Your white wedding dress will stand out brilliantly against the aquarium’s ocean water backdrop of bright blues and turquoises. Plus, fish make for the cutest photo bombers. After the ceremony, invite guests to watch the sunset during a cocktail hour on Mandalay Bay’s sandy outdoor beach.
Best Venue for a Vintage Vegas Wedding: Graceland Wedding Chapel
Dance down the aisle with The King in tow at this historic, Elvis-themed little chapel. Exchange rings as an Elvis lookalike croons “I can’t helping falling in love,” and then pose for deliciously vintage Vegas photos underneath the chapel’s neon sign and classic pink Cadillac.
