A Spectacular Outdoor Canyon Wedding Near Las Vegas!

Wedding at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada
Choose the serene desert and stunning Red Rock Canyon as a backdrop for your wedding
Autumn will be here before you know it, and the fall months are a time when the weather is at its most breathtaking in Las Vegas. If it’s just the two of you, or if you have just a handful of guests, one of our most romantic weddings at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel takes place just outside the city, and at sunset.

You’ll be whisked away from your hotel in one of our limousines, taken 20 miles west of Las Vegas into the gorgeous Red Rock Canyon. Your bouquet, minister, photographer and videographer will all be there to meet you. Your ceremony and your photo session will take place before some of the most stunning scenery in Southern Nevada.

The Beautiful Red Rock Wedding package also includes champagne glasses for toasting afterward, and the required National Park Service fee. You’ll need to book two weeks ahead to make all the arrangements to be married on this special site. So consider making arrangements soon for a fall wedding. But it’s worthy to note that winter and early spring days are fairly mild in the desert as well, if you’re planning something later in the year or early in 2019.

Destination Outdoor Vegas Wedding

On your way back to Las Vegas in your stretch limo (if you do marry at sundown) you’ll enjoy an exciting panoramic view of the lights of Las Vegas just as they are coming on. Plus, you can have gourmet candlelit dining reservations waiting back at your hotel. Perfect! Our wedding staffers can make recommendations for any of your needs, pre-wedding or honeymoon planning.

Visit to check out this unique traditional wedding package. And feel free to call us with any questions. We’ll be happy to take care of every detail for you to make this your dream wedding in the glorious desert sunset! 702-384-0771

Unique Wedding Entrances? Viva Las Vegas Weddings Has You Covered!

Elvis Pink Caddy Wedding
Your view as you enter the chapel!

If you’re getting married by Elvis in Vegas, and if pink is your favorite color…Well, the choice is obvious! Our one-of-a-kind Elvis Pink Caddy wedding entrance has you riding into the chapel in a PINK convertible driven by Elvis, in a cloud of theatrical fog and blaring lights and music. How Vegas! How pink you go is totally up to you!

Our Elvis Pink Caddy wedding is the perfect choice for any Vegas spectacular style wedding, but especially for those who go with an all-pink wedding theme. Flowers? Pink roses tied with pink ribbon! Wedding dress? Pink! Groom’s tux? Pink, or maybe just the shirt or tie…or hat band! Bridesmaids? Pink flatters everyone and can be very sweet in a pink-and-ivory combo, or the more sophisticated pink and black. Pink just ties everything together and makes for perfect photos of your unforgettable Vegas Elvis Pink Caddy wedding!

Vegas Wedding Flowers
Some brides go “all pink” for their Elvis Pink Caddy wedding!

For those who maybe just like Elvis crooning at their wedding plus the wildly fun Caddy entrance…but not so much the PINK thing…that’s okay, too! It’s YOUR wedding, so pick out the wedding duds and color scheme of your choosing. For this wedding, you’ll want to add live streaming internet coverage if you have friends and family who want to watch in real time back home. Or…the Elvis Pink Caddy wedding package comes with a DVD, so you’ll have “evidence” of your dramatic wedding entrance later!

Viva Las Vegas’ Most Affordable Traditional Wedding Packages!

Vegas Wedding Chapel
Formal, informal, or somewhere in between, we do “traditional” weddings YOUR way!

Relax, though, because we do romantic, elegant traditional weddings here, too! Our friendly, smiling ministers will put you at ease and deliver a touching, heartfelt vow exchange just for you. From lavish ceremonies with all the frills, to intimate weddings with just the two of you, we offer the most choices in Las Vegas for the wedding of your dreams.

Best of all, our most basic traditional weddings include flowers, photography, a personal wedding website/invitation, all from just $265. You can choose to upgrade any aspect of your package, and you can request ONLY the elements your really want, should you choose to go with just the necessaries.

Helicopter Wedding Las Vegas

Doug and Melinda’s Big Viva Las Vegas Wedding Adventure!

Vegas Wedding Video
Watch one couple’s Viva Las Vegas Wedding experience to see what a ‘traditional’ Vegas wedding can be like!

If you wonder what a Viva Las Vegas Traditional Wedding might be like, we came across this amazing video of Doug and Melinda’s wedding with us! It includes all the “before’s” and “after’s” of their magical day. We thought it was a wonderful way to imagine being picked up by one of our luxurious stretch limos, being transported to the chapel for an romantic traditional ceremony, then seeing the lights of Las Vegas afterwards on your return limo ride. This video makes a good case for a sunset wedding time, too. Whether you have an indoor wedding in our Main Chapel, or a ceremony in our Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapel, packages that include limo service offer a spectacular view of the lights coming on along the Strip afterward. Ask to schedule your wedding at sunset or later to catch the lights!

For those who want to extend their fantastic Vegas wedding experience, ask us about our Photo Tour options. You and your photographer will visit iconic sights along Las Vegas Boulevard for stunning posed shots in your wedding finery. (For more information on our Photo Tours, visit this page:

We’d like to extend our thanks to Doug and Melinda for documenting their special day in this high-quality twelve-minute video. We thought it just HAD to be shared with others. Have a look, below!

And, yes, if you prefer, we offer packages where you can be married AT the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign by day or night, or at a number of other visually captivating sites in and around Las Vegas—with Elvis, or with a “regular” minister! Call one of our helpful wedding planners for ideas after you’ve visited all the possibilities on our website at

Remember, if you’re feeling wistful about this video since you’re ALREADY married, renewing your vows for a special anniversary is plenty of reason to do it all again at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! Vow renewal ceremonies offer all the same frills, but you won’t need to get a marriage license or to pay a minister’s fee. 🙂

Las Vegas Strip Wedding tour
Consider adding a photo tour by night after your Viva Las Vegas Wedding!

Best wishes to Doug and Melinda, and thank you for making us look good! Viva Las Vegas!
