“We ordered the “Marry Me” package months before our wedding date, and the service and staff at The Little Church of the West were absolutely marvelous throughout the entire time. The wedding coordinators are in-tune and super professional. Our minister was perfect, too! The Church is so beautiful and we would not have changed a single thing. The photographer took great photos and video, and was not intrusive during the ceremony. Our transportation persons were punctual and streamlined. When it comes time to renew our marriage vows, we will be right back there to the Little Church. We really can’t say enough great words about our wedding experience!

Las Vegas Wedding Chapels | Little Church of the West
If you’re looking for the most unique wedding experience in Las Vegas, the Little Church of the West is the perfect location for you. Located a short walk from the famous Fabulous Las Vegas sign, we offer an experience that other Las Vegas wedding chapels can’t match.
What makes us the best place to elope in Vegas?
Getting married in Vegas has become an American tradition. When people think about Vegas, there are two things that pop into their heads: gambling and marriage. We’re proud to hold a special place in the history of Las Vegas and the marriage industry as the original Las Vegas wedding chapel.
We were established in 1942, right after Thomas Hull built the first casino in 1941. For the past 75 years, we’ve seen thousands of couples come through to experience the excitement of getting married old west style. We were placed on the Registry of Historic Places in 1992, meaning that when you hold your marriage ceremony or renewal service with us, you’re becoming a part of a unique history.
Another thing that sets us apart from other Las Vegas wedding chapels is our old west theme. Las Vegas is a city founded on the ideals of cowboy lore and the old west mentality. It’s only fitting to have your wedding old west style.
Our wedding chapel is a replica of an old west church, with beautiful candle and light fixtures, wooden old west style benches, natural light, and a traditional organ in the front of the chapel. You can have your wedding in a traditional setting while still being in the heart of a modern and exciting city, giving your wedding party the best of both worlds.
A Peaceful Location in the Heart of Las Vegas
The wedding chapel is a short walk from the famous Fabulous Las Vegas sign and only minutes away from the strip. Our unique location allows you to have your wedding in Las Vegas, with easy access to the best parts of the city without dealing with the chaos of the casino crowd while taking your vows.
Our wedding chapel sits on one acre of land. Unlike other Las Vegas wedding chapels, we’re the only free-standing chapel in the heart of the strip. We sit on one acre of beautifully manicured land, giving your wedding party plenty of room to enjoy the ceremony. Given our unique location, you won’t have to worry about finding a parking spot or coordinating arrival times on your big day.
The location and land give you plenty of picturesque locations for wedding photography. You’ll have no problem finding the perfect spot for your wedding day pictures and won’t have to wait for crowds of people to pass by so that they don’t interrupt your shot. Our location allows you to focus on what truly matters: your loved one, family, and friends. This is your day! Spend it with those closest to you in a peaceful setting.
Is the wedding chapel near me?
This isn’t to say that we’re isolated from the best of the strip. Our unique location provides you with a peaceful experience even though you’re only a short walk from Mandalay Bay and the Four Seasons. We’re also less than a ten-minute car ride away from other famous Vegas hotspots, including the MGM Grand, Tropicana, Planet Hollywood, and the Marriot.
Services That Meet Your Needs
For the past 75 years, we’ve hosted thousands of weddings and met a wide variety of needs. Our wedding experience has allowed us to develop unique services that bring together traditional marriages with those that want to add a little bit of Vegas flair to their ceremony.
Chapel and Outdoor Ceremonies
We offer three chapel ceremony packages depending on what you’re looking for and the needs of your guests.
Each tier includes a personal wedding planner, wedding photographer, and photo credits. We’ll also give you access to an online video of your wedding so that anyone who couldn’t make it can experience the ceremony. The package you choose will largely depend on the number of guests you’ll have attending and whether you prefer simple Vegas weddings or want a more traditional ceremony.
You can’t think of Las Vegas wedding chapels without thinking about Elvis. With this package, you can have the King himself escort you down the aisle and sing his favorite love songs for you and your wedding party.
Each package comes with the same benefits as the chapel and outdoor ceremonies, but of course, with Elvis involved. You’ll also be able to pose for pictures with Elvis!
Welcome To Las Vegas
Nothing says Las Vegas more than the world-famous “Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas” sign. Since we’re located a short walk away, we can hold your wedding ceremony under this famous landmark for a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
This package includes photos taken of the bride and groom at the sign, along with photos of the entire wedding party. You’ll also receive round-trip limo service for up to six people, making this a ceremony to remember!
Country Western Themed Package
If you want to go all-in and have a full-on old west/last frontier experience, this is the package to place your bets on. This package provides country music for walking down the aisle and exiting and a burlap and lace aisle runner. If you choose the “Most Wanted” country themed wedding, you’ll also receive your choice of limo service, a champagne toast in our rose garden, or a party bus for up to 30 guests. It’s a wedding service any outlaw would be proud of.
Harley Davidson Themed Wedding
Some people live for leather and chrome and the freedom that comes with being on the road. If you and your loved one don’t play by the rules, you should have a wedding ceremony with a little bit of edge and a whole lot of love.
Our Harley Davidson package is specifically designed for those that want to be surrounded by the things they love: family, friends, and Harley. This is a special package that you won’t find at any other of the Las Vegas wedding chapels!
What You’ll Need For Your Ceremony
There are a few things you’ll need for your ceremony at the Little Church of the West. First, you’ll need to get a marriage license from Clark County.
A marriage license is easy to get. Both parties need to be at least 18 and appear before a Clerk at the Clark County Marriage Bureau location.
The state of Nevada doesn’t have a waiting period between the issuance of the license and the time you get married. You can have a ceremony five minutes after you receive the license if you choose. The state also doesn’t require a blood test, so the process is pretty straight-forward and quick. You must bring valid forms of government identification to the Marriage Bureau.
Each package requires a fee for the minister that performs the ceremony that’s payable in cash at the time of the ceremony.
We have relationships with many people in the community that provide additional services, such as wedding cakes, Scottish bagpipers, and hair and makeup artists. If you need any of these services, you can check out our additional services tab on the top of our page.
Other Important Information
You’re required to have a witness to your ceremony in Nevada. If you don’t have one available, we’ll provide a witness to you as part of our packages.
Here at the Little Church of the West, we believe that love is love and proudly welcome same-sex couples for marriages and renewals. No matter what your religion, race, gender, or orientation, we’ll treat you and your wedding party as our cherished guests.
Our chapel seats 50-60 people, with standing room for up to 75. If you plan on having a larger party, our outdoor venue can seat 80 with standing room for any number of people.
