About Mt. Charleston

Note: Cactus Collective Weddings is under permit with the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area.

“We knew we wanted to try finding a package-type deal in Las Vegas for our small wedding. We opted for a few add ons like music, a site visit, extra photography, videography, and champagne toast. The team was communicative throughout the whole process.”
