Want to be a “star” in your next wedding?

If you’re looking to star in your “happily ever after”, this is the place to get hitched.

If you love heights, luxury, and love, Chapel in the Clouds at Stratosphere is a place you must consider. This chapel is situated about 800-feet above the Las Vegas Strip. The views are amazing and simply can’t be duplicated anywhere, considering Stratosphere is one of the highest points in the world and overlooks the entire Strip.

Golden Nugget Wedding Chapel
Golden Nugget is a Fremont Street icon. The wedding chapel inside Golden Nugget is part of the reason. Weddings at Golden Nugget include a day filled with fun and relaxation. The day starts with a 3-hour manicure and pedicure for the bride, and concludes with a 50-minute couples massage. Of course, in between, you’ll get married in one of Las Vegas’ top wedding chapels.

Although every Vegas wedding is different, there is one constant – originality.
