Las Vegas is a city famous for its celebration of fast,
simple, and untraditional weddings. Usually, Las Vegas
weddings bring to mind ceremonies in a classic Las
Vegas wedding chapel, but less traditional options
like Vegas helicopter weddings are definitely something
to consider. A Las Vegas helicopter wedding can be a wildly
adventurous and romantic way to tie the knot, reciting
vows midair or touching down in a remote and private natural
setting for the ceremony.
An attractive option for a Las Vegas helicopter wedding is to fly out
from Las Vegas by day to be married on the ground in the Grand
Canyon. Choosing to have a Grand Canyon wedding provides
a simply gorgeous natural environment as a backdrop to
the ceremony. The ride might take you past sights such
as the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Fortification
Hill, and Bowl of Fire. After landing, the couple is married
by a minister and surrounded by gorgeous natural
beauty. As far as Las Vegas weddings in the great outdoors
go, it hardly can get more romantic than a private Valley
of Fire wedding looking over the beautiful red sandstone
formations of the Valley
of Fire State Park from a plateau as the sun sets.
No matter which destination is chosen, keep in mind that helicopter weddings in Las Vegas are typically very private affairs. There is often only room for two guests on board in addition the bride, groom, minister, and photographer. As far as kinds of Vegas helicopter weddings go, couples can usually choose between a religious or civil ceremony. Also, obviously, more bells and whistles mean additional costs. In general, though, Vegas helicopter weddings over the Strip are actually fairly affordable, while a trip out to the Grand Canyon is significantly more expensive as Las Vegas weddings go.
In most cases, helicopter weddings in Las Vegas kick off with a shot of glamour, with a luxury limousine pick-up from a hotel on the Strip that takes the couple to their private helicopter (also included is a complimentary return trip after the ride and ceremony are completed). Depending on the company and package, a Las Vegas helicopter wedding can include all or any of a champagne toast, wedding cake, hors d'oeuvres, beverages, a bouquet and matching boutonniere, traditional and candid photos taken by a professional photographer, a wedding video, a wedding coordinator, and even an Elvis or Jonnny Cash impersonator to sing! All in all, a helicopter wedding is sure to be an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind experience.
