Las Vegas has long been a haven for couples looking to tie the knot in an unconventional and unforgettable way. From the most lavish ballroom bash to a private desert ceremony, this city has options for anyone looking to put a unique spin on the day they say “I do.” Below, check out our favorite details and fun photo ops from real Vegas weddings that prove just how much this all-in-one destination has to offer.

  1. 1. Pose in front of the famous sign.

    It’s an icon for a reason. The 1959 landmark is located at the southern end of the Strip, just south of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

  2. 2. Stand on the shores of Lake Las Vegas.

    Dreaming of a waterfront wedding? Lake Las Vegas offers an oasis surrounded by palm trees and lush greenery in the middle of the desert.

  3. 3. Pop some champagne in the middle of the desert.

    Less than 60 miles from the center of town, Valley of Fire State Park’s breathtaking landscape of red sandstone serves as the perfect scenery for an intimate ceremony in the desert—and some postnuptial celebration, of course.

  4. 4. Pose in front of some killer street art Downtown.

    Downtown Las Vegas (the historic center of town around Fremont Street) boasts plenty of colorful murals that’ll add an artistic feel to your wedding photos.

  5. 5. Cruise the Strip in a convertible.

    Channel serious vintage glamour (not to mention snag an ideal photo op) by riding down Las Vegas Boulevard in the back of a classic car. A pair of cool shades not required—but totally recommended.

  6. 6. Have your first dance beneath the Eiffel Tower.

    No need to fly to France for this stunning setting. At Paris Las Vegas, you can host your reception inside a half-size replica of this famous structure.

  7. 7. Get hitched at a drive-thru chapel.

    Modern-day Las Vegas has venues for every wedding style and budget—from a lush garden to a lavish hotel—but many couples want the quintessential Vegas experience. There’s no better way to channel that romantic elopement vibe than by saying “I do” at a drive-thru chapel.

  8. 8. Stroll through a neon graveyard.

    Available for ceremonies, receptions or just a photo shoot, The Neon Museum is home to more than 200 vintage signs that’ll light up your backdrop.

  9. 9. Take your portraits in the Wild West.

    Looking for something a little different than the glowing lights of the city? Eldorado Canyon (just 45 minutes from the Strip) has roots in the Wild West, including an old ghost town where you can snap photos with a truly rustic feel.
