Las Vegas Weddings: FREE Valentine’s Day Weddings in Fabulous Las Vegas to Benefit Couples in Today’s Tough Economy!

  • By admin

Giving Back to the Community: FREE Valentine’s Day Weddings in Fabulous Las Vegas to Benefit Couples in Today’s Tough Economy!

Local Las Vegas wedding business, Scenic Las Vegas Weddings, is donating their time on Valentines Day 2012 (Tuesday, February 14, 2012) to perform FREE weddings and wedding photography for up to 25 lucky couples!

The current US unemployment rate is 9.1% with home foreclosures and short sales still continuing at an alarming rate. While weddings still take place in a down economy, with job losses and home losses, some couples cannot even afford an extremely scaled back version of a wedding. Some of the potential benefits of being married include: car insurance discounts, increased credit scores, more favorable loan offers, increased financial stability, and shared employer benefits.

In an effort to “give back” to the community, Scenic Las Vegas Weddings has dedicated Valentine’s Day 2012 as “Free Las Vegas Wedding Day.” All couples must purchase and present a valid Nevada marriage license ($60 at the Clark County Marriage Bureau) to the Wedding Officiant at the time of their wedding. Each lucky couple will receive a choice of a civil or religious ceremony and 15 professional photos on DVD. A witness will be provided if needed.

Beginning, December 1, 2011, couples will need to register online at http://sceiclasvegaswedddings.com for a 30-minute time slot either at our Scenic Garden Gazebo (weddings from 9 AM-5 PM) or our Scenic Studio (weddings from 5:30 PM-8:00 PM). We will confirm weddings for up to 25 couples on a “first come, first serve” basis to be performed Tuesday, February 14, 2012.

A husband and wife team of professional Las Vegas wedding photographers owns scenic Las Vegas Weddings. Scenic Las Vegas Weddings has been providing spectacular photography, heartfelt ceremonies, and beautiful locations for wedding couples from Las Vegas and around the world since 2009.

For additional information or to reserve you FREE Valentine’s Day wedding with Scenic Las Vegas Weddings, you may stop by our office (Monday-Friday 9 AM to 4:30 PM), email info@sceniclasvegasweddings.com or call 702-515-1100 or toll free 866-921-7547 or visit us on the web at http://www.sceniclasvegasweddings.com.

Las Vegas Weddings Scenic Amphitheater and Scenic Gazebo

Las Vegas Weddings: Valley of Fire Weddings with Scenic Las Vegas Weddings!

  • By admin

Valley of Fire Prehistory

The Valley of Fire derives its name from red sandstone formations, formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of dinosaurs, 150 million years ago. Complex uplifting and faulting of the region, followed by extensive erosion, have created the present landscape. Other important rock formations include limestone, shale, and conglomerates. Prehistoric users of the Valley of Fire included the Basket Maker people and later the Anasazi Pueblo farmers from the nearby fertile Moapa Valley. The span of approximate occupation has been dated from 300 B.C. to 1150 A.D. Their visits probably involved hunting, food gathering, and religious ceremonies, although scarcity of water would have limited the length of their stay. Fine examples of rock art left by these ancient peoples can be found at several sites within the park.

Valley of Fire Climate

Winters are mild with temperatures ranging from freezing to 75 degrees. Daily summer highs usually exceed 100 degrees, and may reach 120 degrees. Summer temperatures can vary widely from day to night. Average annual rainfall is four inches, coming in the form of light winter showers and summer thunderstorms. Spring and fall are the preferred seasons for visiting the Valley of Fire. Snow rarely falls at Valley of Fire as shown in this picture.

Valley of Fire Nature

The area plant community is dominated by widely spaced creosote bush, burro bush, and brittlebush. Several cactus species, including Beaver Tail and Cholla, are also common. The springtime bloom of such plants as the desert marigold, indigo bush, and desert mallow are often spectacular along park roads. Resident birds include the raven, house finch, sage sparrow, and roadrunner.

Many migrant birds also pass through the park. Most desert animals are nocturnal and not frequently seen by the passing motorist. Many species of lizards and snakes are common in the park, as well as the coyote, kit fox, spotted skunk, black tailed jackrabbit, and antelope ground squirrel. The desert tortoise is a rare species and is protected by state law. If you are lucky enough to come across one please leave this likable and harmless creature to live its life in peace in its own environment.

Valley of Fire Weddings

Scenic Las Vegas Weddings is proud to boast that we have done more Valley of Fire weddings than any other Las Vegas Wedding company! Not only do we perform weddings at Valley of Fire every week of the year, we also do Valley of Fire photography tours as well. If you want the best possible Valley of Fire photos, you need to book with Scenic Las Vegas Weddings. We are professional photographers, there are many others in town who are not.

Permitted Valley of Fire Wedding Locations

Cabins: Now a picnic area, these historic stone cabins were built with native sandstone by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) in the 1930′s as a shelter for passing travelers.

Las Vegas Weddings: Your Las Vegas Wedding Ceremony with Scenic Las Vegas Weddings!

  • By admin

Each of our Las Vegas Wedding Officiants comes prepared to perform either a Civil (non-religious) or religious ceremony for you on your special day. Your Las Vegas Wedding Officiant will ask you the following questions prior to your wedding ceremony:

  • Do you prefer a Civil or Religious Ceremony?
  • Do you have rings to exchange?
  • Do you have your own vows or any of your own words to say? (Most couples do not, so there is no pressure to do this).
  • Is the bride taking the groom’s last name (for pronouncement purposes only)?

You are more than welcome to bring your own vows and your Wedding Officiant can incorporate them into your wedding ceremony. Please keep in mind that it works out much better if you read your own vows to each other instead of the Wedding Officiant having you “repeat after me.”

You can also opt to add a unity candle ceremony ($50.00 additional charge) to your Scenic Las Vegas Gazebo, Studio, or Amphitheater wedding package.

Also, if you bring your whole ceremony and hand it to your Wedding Officiant, please keep in mind that the Wedding Officiant will have to read it (as opposed to speaking from memory) and it may sound very awkward. We suggest bringing your own vows or a few things to say to each other at most.

Your wedding ceremony will be approximately 5-8 minutes long, but may be shorter if you are getting married somewhere on the Las Vegas Strip. You should not worry about your guests standing if you have a wedding venue that does not offer chairs because they will only have to stand for a short period of time.

If you do not have wedding guests or have few guests, we suggest that the bride and groom start standing arm and arm. If you are having a bigger wedding, you are more than welcome to have a bridal party stand up with you.

You may also choose to “walk down the aisle” at the following locations: all Scenic Locations (except Grand Canyon) and our Scenic Gazebo/Studio/Amphitheater. The only place to “walk down the aisle” on the Las Vegas Strip would be your hotel room/suite. It does NOT work out to try to “walk down the aisle” or stay hidden from each other for a Las Vegas Strip Wedding. We know that it is your day, but we do as many as 1,000 weddings a year and we really do know what works and what does not.

Ceremony (processional) music is available upon request for many (but not all) of our locations. This must be pre-arranged with our Scenic Las Vegas Weddings office.

Again, this is your day, but take our advice when we tell you that aisle runners do not work well at our scenic locations! We have seen it done, but it does NOT look nice and people end up tripping if it is windy or if you try to place it over bumps or on the grass. Ladies, leave the runners at home!

Please note: All Scenic Las Vegas Weddings can be done as a vow renewal or commitment ceremony.

“Las Vegas Weddings: Getting Married in Las Vegas: Beyond the Cheap Las Vegas Strip Chapels in Today’s Tough Economy”

  • By admin

History of Las Vegas Weddings

Las Vegas hosts more than 1 in 20 marriages in the United States. Clark County (Las Vegas) issued 91,890 marriage licenses in 2010 alone. Las Vegas is also the entertainment capital of the world and with all the glitz and glamour that Las Vegas has to offer, it is a hotspot for weddings. It has gained the reputation as the “it” spot to “tie the knot!”

Even though Las Vegas is known for it’s last minute, cheesy chapel weddings and midnight drive thru weddings, this city is also home to destination weddings that require plenty of planning for in preparation of vows that last a lifetime. Las Vegas has couples from around the world planning their perfect Las Vegas destination wedding.

Since the 1930s, Nevada’s lure of fast, easy marriages has attracted countless couples looking to tie the knot. Although, the Las Vegas Chapel is still a popular option, Las Vegas now offers many more elegant, classy, and scenic option that more and more couples are choosing. Most of the Las Vegas Wedding Chapels have seen better days and are now many decades past their “heyday.”

Just like neighborhoods change over time, the “Las Vegas Chapel Row” on South Las Vegas Boulevard has dramatically changed as well. The area is now full of strip clubs, tattoo parlors, adult bookstores, pawn shops, and has a “ghetto-type” atmosphere. It is not a neighborhood that one should walk around in after dark. You may also come out of your chapel wedding to see prostitutes lingering in the area.

Modern Las Vegas Wedding Venues

Las Vegas may be best known for popularizing the wedding chapel ceremony. With opportunities for drive-through vows, Elvis impersonators to officiate, and intimate settings for elopement, Las Vegas wedding chapels provide some of the biggest business to Las Vegas’ wedding industry. But these chapels are far from the only place to be wed in this city.

The “mega” Las Vegas Strip Resorts also offer luxury Las Vegas weddings. Often organized by a hired wedding coordinator, these luxury weddings involve destination brides in intricate details and wedding day decisions. A Las Vegas luxury resort wedding offers all the commodities of a traditional wedding. This is a great option for couples where cost is not a consideration. Unfortunately, for most couples in today’s economy, cost is often the number one consideration.

The current US unemployment rate is 9.1% with an unemployment rate also topping 8% in the UK. While weddings still take place in a down economy, brides and grooms are scaling back and trimming the excess from their celebrations. The numbers show this dramatic shift: The average cost of a wedding dropped $10,000 a year after the recession began.

For destination brides or Las Vegas locals who prefer an elegant, affordable, and scenic wedding outside the Las Vegas Strip, Scenic Las Vegas Weddings is one local Las Vegas wedding company that offers many options. Scenic Las Vegas Weddings is family owned by a husband and wife team. The owners are both professional Las Vegas wedding photographers whose main goal is to provide spectacular photography, beautiful locations, and heartfelt ceremonies. Venues include: Scenic Gazebo, Valley of Fire, Lake Mead, Red Rock Canyon, Grand Canyon, Lake Las Vegas, Mt. Charleston, Pahrump Valley Winery, Nelson Ghost Town, Death Valley, and The Las Vegas Strip. Scenic Las Vegas Weddings also offers photography only and Wedding Officiant only packages at your location or at one of theirs!
