Las Vegas Elopement Packages for Two

Elope to Vegas but Do It Differently

Ditch the typical idea of getting hitched on the Vegas Strip. Book an elopement package for two in Las Vegas with Cactus Collective Weddings and discover the area’s modern wedding style.

We Do Stress-Free Micro Weddings and Elopements for Adventurous Couples

Within and just beyond the city limits are venues that bend the rules of ‘Vegas wedding.’ They deliver breathtaking mountainous backdrops, vintage chic desertscapes and in-vogue garden-party sophistication. So when you want a venue that screams, ‘This is so different to anything my cousins would have chosen (thank goodness!)’ come to us.

Since 2017 we’ve been booking these hidden treasures for couples from around the world. And our elopement packages for two make it simple to organize your dream wedding ceremony whether you’re local, coming across states, or from distant shores.

We Have Las Vegas Elopement Planning Nailed

Step 1 — Give us the basics

It starts with choosing the Las Vegas wedding venue you want, and sharing your ideas so far with our team. Send this to us using the form below. Within 24 hours you’ll get a proposal that includes a quote, digital contract and first invoice.

Step 2 —Book your wedding

Like what you see in the proposal? Then you’re ready to book. Sign the contract and make your first payment, which you can do digitally and securely online. Once we’ve got this, your date is held and our team starts making the rest of the arrangements.

Step 3 — Planning and finer details

The wheels are really turning now. You’ll get regular emails from us with vendor, ceremony and reception venue inspiration in and around Vegas. You’ll also get balance updates and information about how to get a marriage license in Nevada. Our team is on hand via text or email with the answers to your planning questions. And we’ll catch up regularly to update you on permits and vendor bookings we’re making on your behalf.

Step 4 — Timeline and settling up

Two weeks before your wedding we’ll:

  • send you your ceremony timeline
  • email you requesting any final balance payments
  • introduce you to your booked vendors and on-site host

The timeline explains what you can expect to happen before and during the ceremony, then up to the point when you leave the venue.

Step 5 — Your wedding day

On the day itself, you can reach out to us by calling or messaging your dedicated wedding manager at any time. While you’re getting ready, your vendors and on-site host will prepare the ceremony site. Then, when you arrive, your host will introduce you to your minister and photographer, and proceedings will start.

What makes us extra special

At the helm of Cactus Collective Weddings is McKenzi Taylor, an award-winning wedding coordinator with over 15 years of wedding photography experience.

But that’s not all.

McKenzi has walked the walk when it comes to eloping in Vegas. In 2016 she and now-husband Matt organized their own just-the-two-of-us wedding. And it was their experience that inspired McKenzi to help other adventurous couples do the same.

But having a ‘been there, done that’ CEO isn’t the only thing that sets us apart.

  • High-quality photos and editing

    We’re photographers first, and so beautiful photography and photo editing are at the core of our collections. Clients say the images we take are so good they look like they’re straight out of a magazine.

  • Locations and venues

    Our portfolio only includes stylish, desirable and slightly offbeat wedding venues. That’s because we do weddings differently. Plus, we handle the permit paperwork so you don’t have to.

  • Exceptional vendors

    All the vendors we collaborate with are known for their reliability and exceptional service at every wedding, as shown by the amazing feedback we get from our couples.

  • Dedicated team

    Drawing on our decades of wedding industry experience, our small but focused team works hard to bring your wedding vision to life, so your special day is exactly that.

  • Eco-friendly

    Our weddings are environmentally friendly. We’re also a proud partner of Leave No Trace—an NFP providing education and initiatives so every person who ventures outside can protect and enjoy our world responsibly.

  • Supporters of marriage equality

    Couples of any gender and sexuality are welcome. And we continue to educate ourselves on what more we can do to support marriage equality.

  • Stellar customer service

    From initial inquiry through to your special day, when planning your destination wedding we’re just a call away at every step.

Reasons to elope in Vegas

1. Claim to fame

Vegas has a nostalgia unlike any other wedding destination in the world. Saying “We got married in Vegas” is so rockstar it hurts. Plus, you’ll be joining a celebrity-studded rollcall of newlyweds that includes Bon Jovi, Bette Midler and Joe Jonas.

2. No-headache marriage license

Getting a marriage license in Nevada is as easy as ordering a coffee in Starbucks. You can do it all online in (roughly) as much time as it takes to drink the Grande you just ordered. It can be processed in just 15 minutes (just in case you forget on the day) and only costs $102.

3. Iconic venues

We’re not talking about little chapels on the Strip. We’re talking about nature at its mightiest—Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire, Dry Lake Bed, the Cholla Cactus Field in Eldorado Canyon. You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to picturesque, intimate venues. Or maybe a beach elopement is more your style?

4. Forward thinking

Nevada legalized same-sex weddings in 2014, but has become one of the first states to enshrine marriage as ‘between couples regardless of gender’ in its constitution.

5. Lots of honeymoon options

Casinos. Las Vegas Boulevard. Kooky museums. National and State parks. Helicopter flights over the Grand Canyon. If you’re sticking around in Vegas after the wedding, you and your partner won’t be shy on fresh experiences to kickstart your married life together.

What Eloping in Las Vegas Really Feels Like

As told by our couples
