At the Las Vegas Marriage license Bureau, you need $77 cash or $80 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 at 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 8 am till 12 am-midnight. You do not need a marriage license for a vow renewal or commitment ceremony.
Your Valley of Fire 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 also offer expedited processing of your recorded marriage certificate plus apostille (required by certain countries) for $150. We will have your marriage certificate and apostille to you in about 4-6 weeks.
Any of our wedding packages can be done as a vow renewal or commitment ceremony.
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. Â 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 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.
You will receive at least the minimum number of photos as stated with your particular wedding and/or photography package unless you are late, 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 you will remember your special day, so you want to have the best wedding photos possible.

Suggested amounts are $50.00 and up per person. If we have arranged your transpiration for you, the driver gratuity (20%) is already included.
You may want to either wear a pair of shoes that you can easily walk in or bring a change of shoes for weddings/photo sessions at Valley of Fire. You may also want to let your guests know that this is a good idea.

- 12-rose bridal bouquet plus a matching single rose boutonniere. Color choices are red, white, pink, and yellow.
We can help you with all of your hair/make-up needs. Please request hair/make-up referral when you make your wedding reservation and we will have our preferred hair/make-up artist contact you. Your make-up artist and hairstylist will come to your hotel room. They are the only service in Las Vegas that offers a 15-hour, water, and transfer-resistant GUARANTEE. Their goal is to make you look like you, only on your most beautiful day!
