Best Locations for Fantastic Wedding Photos in Las Vegas

Las Vegas Wedding PhotoYou’re getting married in Las Vegas? Whether you’re a Las Vegas local or coming into town to celebrate your big day, there’s so much planning and preparation involved on your wedding, that you have to rely on professionals for their expertise. From your Las Vegas wedding event venue, cake, flowers or photos, you need the recommendation of an wedding expert to guide you in the right direction. Before or after your wedding at the Keep Memory Alive Event Center, we checked with local photographers to see where the best locations are to have some great photos taken around town to capture your special day for a lifetime.

Your Wedding Venue – This isn’t a surprise that it’s the first pick – when you’re choosing your venue, every bride is checking out different areas for photo opps and rightfully so! The Keep Memory Alive Event Center offers creative and beautiful photo opportunities, from the stunning Frank Gehry – designed stainless steel building lit up in your wedding color, to the Reflection Garden and breezeway. Be sure to ask the venue for location ideas to shoot at, as there might be some areas you aren’t aware of or you are not able to see, that would make for a cool photo location!

Golf Course – Golf courses are the perfect backdrop for any bride and groom. You just can’t go wrong with the green.

Red Rock Canyon – As Nevada’s first National Conservation Area, Red Rock Canyon makes for amazing photographs. Being outdoors in nature is always a safe bet when it comes to photographs, especially at sunset. Located only 17 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, if you have time to include photos here, don’t miss out!

The Neon Museum – This inspiring location makes for artistic and legendary photos. Spanning two-acres, this museum houses more than 150 historic hotel and casino signs from Las Vegas. Capturing photos at this historical museum is one memory definitely worth having.

The Las Vegas Strip – We had to include all the glitter and lights of the Las Vegas Strip! Even if you’re a local, taking photographs along the Strip, specifically in front of the Bellagio Fountains, “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, The Venetian, Caesars Palace and Fremont Street, is a fun and cool way to remember your wedding day.

50 Shades of Wine – Blindfolded Wine Tasting Event

Love wine tasting and the element of surprise? Landry’s combined the two in a unique event hosted at the Keep Memory Alive Event Center with a blind wine tasting for their general managers.

KMA Wine Tasting VenueThe Keep Memory Alive center is no stranger to serving exquisite beverages or catering, except this time the attendees were blindfolded. Indeed, this private event began with all the guests seated around the room, while the commentator introduced the afternoon’s activities before each guest was then blindfolded so they couldn’t see. Assistants were on hand to help pour and guide guests while they tasted each wine. Blindfolded, guests were able to unplug and savor each sip of wine and the flavors they might not have noticed had they been distracted by a visual diversion.

Hosted by Henry “Hoby” Wedler, founder of the nationally recognized chemistry camp for the blind and host of Francis Ford Coppola’s Wine Tasting in the Dark experience, this enlightening two-hour wine tasting event allows guests to explore how flavors and aromas in wine are accentuated when experienced in complete darkness using the blindfold. Welder believes when a person who can see is in complete darkness, they feel more vulnerable and their senses become heightened, thus bringing out more flavors in the wine.

Guests remarked how informative the event was and loved the uniqueness from other typical wine tastings. At the end of the event, Wedler revealed that he is actually blind.
