Alternative site ideas for weddings and events in or nearby Las Vegas....
jet/helicpoter noise at times, lots of traffic noise, and the sign is ALWAYS busy with tourists
Sunset Park (2 miles east of the Vegas sign) Lake, Mountains, ducks! relatively tranquil and somewhat private -
a great spot for a 10 minute ceremony and not too far off the strip - NATURE / DUCKS & GEESE / POND / TREES / Some-what Private-ish
be married In front of Bellagio Fountains along the side walk (can
be busy as heck and pretty darn noisy + it is VERY PUBLIC) (they run
3pm till last show @ Midnight 12pm) from 3pm to 8pm they run every 1/2
hour from 8pm-12midnight they run every 15 minutes
Hotel balcony weddings----> FYI DONT TELL THE HOTEL that you are doing a CEREMONY or a wedding, they will want to charge the heck out of you and have you hire thier super expensive planners and ministers...plus they will tell you you cant do it...etc....just book it and self do the ceremony details! save BOOKOO $$$
Tell them you are getting married if you like, just dont tell them WHERE
dont attract attention to your self by announcing to all the staff that you are marrying on THEIR hotel balcony...
but by all means SHARE that you are getting married! as some times, you get lucky, and staff at hotel registration = UPGRADES --> you for free = with a strip view or larger suite.
be discreet...so security doesnt interupt a ceremony on a balcony. - in all reality there are FEW Las Vegas hotels WITH balconies (they worry about JUMPERS = casino gambling losers or depressed people jumping from balcony) it's sad, but true!
MGM Grand SkyLine Terrace Suitevery PRIVATE- one of the best for weddings with more than just the couple....very spacious balcony (largest in vegas) can hold 30 to 45 people no problem....great views! great for pics! awesome for susnet / twilight weddings! classy and not as expensive as you might think especially Sunday - Thursday
Minister or officiant can come up and do ceremony...I can take pics....you can self cater & bring your own beer/booze/wine or have a catering place drop food off at the front doors of teh hotel - you bring it up - set it on teh kitchen table = instant reception
great times! rates range from $650 a night on off days to $1400 or so...a bargain for a wedding location + wedding night hotel room
MGM SKYLINE TERRACE SUITE 2 story, 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, kitchen table,
medium sized living room, very large outdoor balcony with multiple seating
areas - hifidelity sound etc (was HiTech from the early 90s!)
Cosmopolitan Hotel - Terrace Suites with balconies overlooking the strip! GREAT VIEWS and Photo ops! Smaller Terrace rooms start @ about $275 per night weekdays....
views of fountains at bellagio and strip.
The Wraparound terraces are better if you have more than 2 or 3 people
RENT A HOUSE / CONDO or a MANSION in Las Vegas
Vacation Rental By Owner - VRBO https://www.vrbo.com
Air BEd & Breakfast - AirBnB https://www.airbnb.com

Pretty RedRock Cliffs, mature trees, grass and flowery fields, at RedRock Canyon area 30 miles from the strip Actually I have never seen a wedding done there but makes for great photos! its right next to the Spring mountain cliffs of RedRock and has great green pastures, white horse fencing, a nice farm house for backdrop...unfortunetly it is State run and they want a $200 fee for photography and advance paperwork etc...annoying they harrass photographers shooting couples if you look anything like you know what you are doing with nice equipment
Villas @ Mirage $1,500 - $4500 you get your own pool, starts with a 1 bedrom 1600 sq ft villa, VIP stuff etc...cater it and have a wedding there ! PRIVATE but pricey!

Get Married at a Villa, Penthouse Suite at a major hotel...many
are 700-5000 sq foot rooms and will hold a pretty decent party! for
hotel weddings you'll need a minister or officiant.
Florals / Bouquets / Boutonaire's
|some chapels will only allow THEIR florals - check with your chapel
1st to see if you can bring your own!
Floral can be fairly cheap to pricey as heck!
Local grovery stores just 2 miles from the strip have FLORAL - very
inexpensive to get them here @ Albertsons grocery floral (plan ahead if
you want them to design you one, pre ordr it and have it ready for pickup
on your day

Chapel Limos - some of the chapels will pick you up and drop you off at any location in Las Vegas, they are not for hire, thier service is part of the chapel package, if you want to meet up with me after your ceremony, allow 1 hour from ceremony start time to being dropped off at a Hotel....so if youre wedding is at 5 you can usually be back on the strip by 6....some times though the traffic is bad, and the chapels busy, so your free limo ride may be up to 45 minutes later than planned! FYI and the chapels can line you up with a limo for hire, but they usually have some kinda pre arranged deal with lesser, old limos and lesser companies......better off hiring you own using links below...
Small limos run average $60 per hour and stretch limos run an average of $75 per hour, if for instance you get married at 6pm at a chapel, then the chapels included/free limo drops you off at say Venetian, we plan to meet up at Venetian registration area at 7pm, you probably want to allow for 1/2 hour photos then have the hired limo arrives @ 730....that gives us enough time to do 1 1/2 more hours photos along the strip and 1/2 hour for the limo to get you back to your hotel or dinner reserved restaurant without going over 2 hours limo time :-)

Las Vegas CHAPEL LIST
that being said, ceremonies last about 5 minutes or so, a few chapels DO allow outside vendors such as me if you pay their OUTSIDE VENDOR FEE
Flamingo Chapel for instance charges $150 to eliminate their photographers where you get 5 4x6 prints (no digital) that way I can shoot unlimited photos and video - you get them all!
so HIRE ME if you want tons of photos with rights to ownership and printing!
my favorite chapel of all is GRACELAND wedding chapel,
great prices, friendly people with good customer service, on time limo
Flamingo Garden Chapel @ The Flamingo - 3555 S. Las Vegas Blvd - (702) 733-3232 or try 1-800-933-7993 Toll Free The Flamingo allows outside photographers but YOU MUST PAY an extra $150 to THEM for the "right" to do so..the indoor chapel is really beautiful.....worth the $150 fee to have me shoot the ceremony on video and stills....saves you $$$$ big time
A Little White Chapel - 1301 S. LasVegas Blvd - (702) 382-5943 elvis weddings, Joan Collins got married there $75 outdoor "drive thru" either in their "Pink Cadillac" ...wedding.... or Gazebo wedding...cheapest in town!

We are artists that are passionate about creating great work. We want every portrait created to be a cherished family heirloom - and hence strive for greatness in every piece we make. We paint in both oil and pastel.
Our Process: We love to involve you throughout the painting process.To start off, we ask that you choose a picture you love and that we can work with.
After that, we follow up to get a better feel for what kind of style you're going for.
Next, we paint.:Once the painting's done, we contact you with a picture of the portrait. At this point we ask you to review the painting and make sure you're satisfied. We always want you to be satisfied and will never settle for anything less. If there's anything that needs to be changed, then we make the changes and send you another picture.
