Las Vegas Wedding/Photo Shoot Checklist

Call us when you get in to town at 1-702-515-1100 or email us at info@sceniclasvegasweddings.com

Let us know you’re here, what hotel you are staying at, and whose name the room is under. (This way we can get a hold of you if cell phones do not work).

At the Las Vegas Marriage license Bureau, you need $77 cash or $79.79 for credit card transactions. Each of you must have a valid picture ID. The link to complete the Marriage License Pre-Application is in your wedding reservation confirmation letter.

Please be sure to bring your marriage license (that you receive from the Marriage License Bureau) to your scheduled wedding ceremony. We strongly suggest that you bring the ENTIRE packet that you receive to your wedding.

(If you forget your marriage license or it is incorrect and you need to meet back up with one of our ministers to legalize your wedding, you will be charged an additional $150.00)

Marriage License Bureau, 201 Clark Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89115 Phone: 702-671-0600

The Marriage License Bureau is open 7 days a week from 8am till 12am midnight. You do not need a marriage license for a vow renewal or commitment ceremony.

Your Las Vegas Wedding Ceremony

You have a choice of a civil (non-religious) or a religious wedding ceremony. Your Las Vegas Wedding Officiant is also more than happy to have you incorporate your own vows into your ceremony.

We can also provide a Las Vegas Wedding Officiant only for you in the greater Las Vegas area for $199.00. They can come to your hotel room, meet you on the Las Vegas Strip, come to your local Las Vegas home or vacation home. We also offer expedited processing of your recorded marriage certificate for $130 plus any applicable shipping charges. We will have your copies to you in about 3-4 business days. This includes 2 certified copies of your marriage certificate. If your country requires an apostille, we can do that for you for $150.00. It takes about 4-6 weeks for the whole process and you will receive your marriage certificate plus apostille via priority international mail.

All of our wedding packages can be done as Las Vegas vow renewals or commitment ceremonies.

Photography

If you do not like the style of photography that you see on our website, then please do not book a wedding or photography session with us. You will receive photos of yourselves in a variety of poses, such as those shown on our website. If there is a must have pose for you, then please speak up and let your photographer know what you would like.

We are professional Las Vegas photographers and can take great photos for you, but we are not miracle workers. If, for example, you want fun and spontaneous photos and you are not fun and spontaneous, then it is going to be impossible to get those shots.

We are more than happy to work with you to get you what you want, but we need specific input from you if you want photos other than you see on our website. We enjoy trying new things with couples, but you need to let us know what you want.

We are also busy making sure that we have proper exposures, proper lighting, good poses, and that you have nice expressions. Again, we are not miracle workers, and are not responsible for your hair/make-up, wardrobe, etc… It is your responsibility to make sure you like the way you look.

You will receive all of your photos on a USB drive, as shot. You own ALL non-commercial photo rights to your photos. You also have the option (upon making your reservation) of requesting RAW format (in addition to .jpeg files) for an additional charge of $100.00. We also maintain all commercial and non-commercial photo rights to ALL of the photos that we take.

All wedding and photography packages are based on the amount of time you have booked with us. You will receive at least the minimum number of photos as stated with your particular wedding and/or photography package unless you are late, slow, uncooperative, wearing shoes that you cannot walk in, posing for your family/friends while they take iPhone photos, or otherwise wasting time when your photographer could be taking your professional shots.

If you do not book with us, we urge you to find out exactly who your wedding photographer will be. Unfortunately, most wedding companies in Las Vegas do not use true professionals (they may call them that, but that doesn’t really mean anything). You need to preview your wedding photographer’s portfolio (you should expect to see at least 15-20 photos by the person who is going to photograph your most important day). Remember, the photos are how your will remember your special day, so you want to have the best wedding photos possible.

Wedding and Photo Shoot Venues

The only wedding venue that belongs to Scenic Las Vegas Weddings is our Chapel located in downtown Las Vegas. We have agreements and/or contracts with all of our other venues to be able to perform weddings, vow renewals, or photo shoots on their properties. The only exception is public areas on the Las Vegas Strip and in downtown Las Vegas where contracts are not required.

We cannot and do not claim to have any control over the operation of other venues. We cannot control changes in landscape, buildings, lighting, fountains, etc… We also cannot control natural or manmade disasters and the affects that they may have on venues. Also, please note that outdoor venues (even in the Nevada desert) will look different during the different seasons of the year. If you have ANY questions about what a venue may look like currently or during a certain season, please don’t hesitate to ask.
