Weddings at Rita Deanin Abbey Art Museum

We Are The Exclusive Weddings Partner of this One-of-a-Kind Art Museum

Celebrate your multifaceted love amongst the work of multi-talented artist Rita Deanin Abbey. The “most important unknown artist in Southern Nevada” personally designed the spaces at the Las Vegas museum that now bears her name. The prolific artist would probably identify with eloping couples, as she liked to stay out of the public eye herself. Her southwestern themed abstract art is now on display and makes for a lovely setting for micro weddings and elopements.

About Rita Deanin Abbey Art Museum

This 10,500 square foot museum showcases a little known Las Vegas super star and draws artistic couples to the northwest corner of the Las Vegas Valley.

It’s hard to ignore her compositions while posing for your wedding day photographs.

Known locally and internationally for her art, Rita Deanin Abbey exhibited pieces at and completed commissions for libraries, temples, galleries and universities.

Inspired by nature and the great outdoors, her work and her museum are relatable to couples sharing her affinity for desert landscapes, wide open spaces and infinite skyscapes.

Dedication to craft emerges from every piece of her art and creates an unmatched collection of pieces to explore on your wedding day.

The work of this inspiring artist spanned eight decades, and will live on for even longer thanks to the dedication of her husband, Robert Bealleveau, and the efforts of the Rita Deanin Abbey Foundation.

“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.”
