April 29, 2022

Las Vegas is so much more than a bachelor and bachelorette party destination. It’s also a great place to get married. Don’t think Vegas is all just Elvis impersonators and drive-through chapels! There are so many options when it comes to getting married in Las Vegas, from the low-key, quick-and-easy wedding on the strip, to something with a bit more substance outside of the strip. There are a lot of places to get married in Las Vegas that cater to all kinds of happy couples. 

Here are some of the best places to get married in Las Vegas that we’ve had the pleasure of working with to make couples’ dreams come true:

Emerald at Queensridge is one of Las Vegas’s finest venues outside the strip. It is filled with charm and glamor, perfect for a wedding. The courtyard is fit for royalty,  and the ballroom is one of the defining parts of the Emerald at Queensridge because it’s climate-controlled and just drop-dead GORGEOUS! 

This STUNNING venue is surrounded by the beautiful Red Rock Canyon and serene waterscapes, making it an incredibly romantic setting for a wedding. So bring between 50 and 350 guests for a celebration of love at one of the best places to get married in Las Vegas.

#3 – Chapel House

12.7 miles from the strip. 

Located in the charming Henderson’s Water Street District, the Little Chapel on the Corner is not only Henderson’s first wedding chapel, but it’s also the oldest. It’s a small venue only suitable for 50 people or less. However, it offers intimate and affordable options for people looking for places to get married in Las Vegas. 

The garden is STUNNING and the perfect setting for a cozy wedding, with the gazebo tying everything together. You’ve got the choice of using inside the chapel or the outside garden for the ceremony. You can also host your reception here, but all catering and alcohol needs will need to be handled privately. 

There are a lot of places around the Water Street District that offer a great deal of entertainment value, like bars, restaurants, and activities.

#4 – Pahrump Valley Winery

55.9 miles from the strip. 

You’d think wine wouldn’t be able to thrive in Nevada, considering its desert-like conditions. However, Pahrump Valley Winery proves that’s not the case. This incredible venue is beautifully filled with rows upon rows of grapes, making Nevada’s largest winery a reality.

A wedding here is something unique and special. The winery is quaint, even though it’s large in size. The restaurant onsite is rather small, so it doesn’t cater to the largest guest list, only allowing for gatherings of roughly 50 people. There’s so much to enjoy at this wonderful venue, including their delicious wines!

Features of Pahrump Valley Winery

– 50 guest capacity
– Bar and drinks available
– Catering available

#5 – Spring Mountain Ranch

Red Rock Canyon Country Club is a stunning choice if you’re looking for places to get married in Las Vegas. This is a world-class estate that can make any wedding the wedding of dreams. You can have up to 300 guests if you’re looking for a major wedding, but this works perfectly even for the couple looking to elope. 

It’s a large estate with views of the Red Rock mountains behind it and lush green lawns surrounding the country club.

19.5 miles from the strip. 

While most of Red Rock Canyon is the red sandstone and sparse vegetation, Mount Charleston is the outlier. It’s a lush mountainside with a spot at the bottom for weddings and elopements to take place. It’s a venue that boasts INSANE natural beauty and a charming little area overlooking the mountains.

Features of Mount Charleston

#8 – El Dorado Canyon Nelsons Ghost Town

19.5 miles from the strip. 

Easily one of the COOLEST venues on offer at the Red Rock Canyon Park is the El Dorado Canyon Nelsons Ghost Town. This place is authentic, and out of all the places to get married in Las Vegas, this is one that will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. The venue is stylish and offers a rustic charm of a bygone era.

The venue has their own decor like old road signs, old mining equipment, rusted-out cars, and some scattershot dilapidated buildings. Not to say you can’t add your own personal flare, but why would you when it’s already perfect! It’s a great place for an elopement and for photos! This should be a top consideration when thinking of places to get married in Las Vegas.

#9 – Paiute

27.1 miles from the strip. 

Paiute is a golf resort at heart, but this location is nothing short of MESMERIZING and ready to be a contender for one of the places to get married in Las Vegas. It’s a sprawling estate that offers weddings as not many other venues can.

#10 – Dry Lake Bed

50.2 miles from the strip. 

There’s a strong chance you’ve seen this landscape before in a movie or music video. It’s an extremely popular location for filming and photoshoots, but even better for a wedding. This dried-out lake bed acts as a great location for a stunning wedding where you exist isolated and surrounded by mountains in the distance. In a sense, it’s a unique choice to have a wedding, but it’s an incredible blank canvas to make your elopement dreams come true.

It’s not all perfect, unfortunately. The lack of toilets is definitely its biggest downside, so it’s important to be aware of that right off the bat. Otherwise, this venue can be a great place for a small intimate wedding where you can have the reception in and around the general area. 

Features of Dry Lake Bed

– 50 guest capacity
– Parking is available at the entrance
– There is a $10 per vehicle entrance fee (Non-NV Vehicles: $15.00 per vehicle)

21.8 miles from the strip. 

Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs is one of the most incredible places to get married in Las Vegas. It’s a MAGICAL spot filled with trees, lakes, and a gorgeous view of the mountains ahead. This 680-acre park means there are a lot of options for you to consider when looking for the best spot to get married.

23.8 miles from the strip. 

Lake Las Vegas is a truly UNIQUE venue. It’s like a literal oasis in the sands with palm trees, grass, a large lake, and a beautiful setting for a wedding. You’ll be married in a peaceful setting that’s so uniquely Las Vegas in the best ways.

You and your partner, as well as up to 250 friends and family, are able to use the facilities for your special occasion.

#13 – Spring Preserve

50.2 miles from the strip. 

This is one of my favorite venues. Why? Because it’s got so much to offer. Stunning trees and stone features make this just a gorgeous location for a wedding. You’ve got options for where you want the ceremony to take place, including a gazebo, an altar, and under the trees, among other choices.

The Spring Preserve is a 180-acre cultural institution that features a botanical garden, an interpretive trail system, and various cactus gardens. There are a lot of opportunities here to have a beautiful, intimate wedding. You are able to have about 20 guests or so, but any more than that and it starts to feel cramped.

Features of Spring Preserve

– 20 people preferred guest capacity
– Parking is available at the entrance
– There is a $10 per vehicle entrance fee (Non-NV Vehicles: $15.00 per vehicle)
– Everything is handled by the couple and their wedding planner (the venue doesn’t take on any elopement responsibilities)

#14 – Desert Love Land and Chapel

50.2 miles from the strip. 

This cute little venue isn’t far from the Red Rock Canyon. It’s a unique place to get married because it has that old western feeling, like a little house on the prairie – but instead of lush grass, think sand, and lots of it! 

Beyond the little chapel, however, there is more to this venue. Views of the Nevada mountain ranges and so many other places in the general vicinity where you can get married. It’s a venue that has a lot to offer if you’re ready to look around and give it a chance.

Another benefit is that there’s a lot more room to play than in other park areas like Red Rock Canyon. We can actually do more extensive decor like large structures and arches!

Features of Desert Love Land and Chapel

– 60 guest capacity (or 24 inside the chapel and 50 outside)
– Parking is available at the entrance
– Everything is handled by the couple and their wedding planner (the venue doesn’t take on any elopement responsibilities)

#15 – Red Rock Ash Springs

19.5 miles from the strip. 

Almost like an oasis in the desert, the Red Rocks Ash Springs is a beautiful little spot for you to host a great wedding! Located in the Mojave Desert, surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of this location, there’s so much potential for a charming, small, and intimate ceremony. 

You’ll only be able to have about 15 guests, so this is truly an elopement spot for couples looking for something unique and special that isn’t going to be a large gathering. It’s a bit of a journey, so be prepared for some walking, but once you see those towering red sandstone peaks and Keystone Thrust fault, it will have been worth the walk.

Features of Red Rock Ash Springs

-15 guest capacity
– Parking is available at the entrance
– Everything is handled by the couple and their wedding planner (the venue doesn’t take on any elopement responsibilities)
– There is a $15 per vehicle entrance fee

#16 – Red Rock Canyon Red Springs Boardwalk

19.5 miles from the strip. 

Another one of these great places to get married in Las Vegas is the Red Springs Boardwalk. It’s a beautiful spot that’s nestled amongst some trees with a magnificent view overlooking the canyon. The wooden boardwalk is what makes this venue, though, as it allows for a place to enjoy the ceremony and get some STUNNING photos. 

You can enjoy the spot with a small group of family and friends, up to 50 people. It’s just the perfect spot to enjoy your special day, thanks to the serene nature of the surrounding area. 

Features of Red Rock Canyon Red Springs Boardwalk

– 50 guest capacity
– Parking is available at the entrance
– Everything is handled by the couple and their wedding planner (the venue doesn’t take on any elopement responsibilities)
– There is a $15 per vehicle entrance fee

#17 – Red Rock Canyon Overlook

19.5 miles from the strip. 

The final Red Rock Canyon location is the overlook because it’s one of the best ways to end off this stunning park in general. The overlook puts a majority of the park into perspective, and it’s a sight to behold. You’ll look back at the pictures and think it’s nothing more than a photoshopped background because it’s really something special.

While most might think getting married in the sand isn’t a romantic wedding idea, they clearly don’t know how AMAZING a desert wedding can truly be. Up to 50 guests, including you and your partner, can enjoy this location for your special day, and you’ll never regret it because it’s out of this world. With all these Red Rock Canyon locations, once you’re done with the wedding, you can head to the amazing Red Rock Casino and Resort for a night of celebrations!
