09/10/2014Sweethearts Wedding Chapel
We flew 5500 miles to have our commitment ceremony in Las Vegas a few months ago. With no expectations, but in the mood to have a nice weekend to get our ceremony done, we were very welcomed at Las Vegas. There are a lot of comments on the Sweethearts Chapel, very bad and really good reviews. But we feel that it has all to do with expectations. We wanted a bit campy, overdone ceremony.. with Elvis !! Hey.. Its Las Vegas !! And for our goal the next door Adult Shop, The Bars before the windows and the little bit old fashioned interior was part of our fun. What the chapel made our 4 stars review worth it, was that they have given us the feeling of having our ceremony well done organized, so far away from home. If you want to have a prince and princess like dream wedding, then marry in a Castle. Kathy / Eren is nice to talk with and gives you the feeling of having every detail well arranged. The photographer is a young guy and he knows how to handle a camera. But hey, Kathy is also the manager and salesperson and the photographer is a relative who makes pictures for a nice memory. After reading the website of SHC and the packages your expectations in this chapel might be higher then it is in reality, but look at your own facebook, aren’t we all only talking about how nice and fun our life is ? As written before, to marry in a castle you need to be in one. If you want high class star photographer photo’s you need to hire one (and they cost at least $ 500,-). And yes, view the wedding packages carefully and stay responsible for your choice to hand out the whole organization including the budget or stay focused, think smart and be in charge of your budget. So decide for yourself what kind of wedding you want and then pay the price for what it’s worth. Our Ceremony was just a 30 minutes part of our upcoming live, where we confirmed that we really love each other and stay together till dead do us part. At the end for true love it doesn't matter if your ceremony is at a castle or any other place like the Sweethearts chapel.
06/29/2015Victoria's Wedding Chapel
I've been sitting on this review for over a month because I didn't want my anger & heartbreak to compromise the integrity of it. I got married May 16th, 2015 at Victoria's. My wedding was absolutely gorgeous & my memories from that evening are wonderful. We went with the standard options & added our own touches. Unfortunately, I don't have one photo of my special day that I would be proud to display in my home. I should have know when our photographer (the one provided for us by Victoria's) informed us he had never photographed a wedding before & our wedding was his "audition" for the venue. We were informed that our "professional" photographer would take us out for 30 to 45 minutes to the best places on the property for photos. He took 6 pictures of my husband and I at 3 different locations, including the altar. He took a handful of photos with our wedding party & one photo with each of our families. Fifteen minutes later we were at cocktail hour! He didn't capture all the little details that my mom worked so hard on, like my brooch bouquet, the gorgeous thumb print sign that all our guests signed, the handmade favors, the tables with the glowing candelabras, rings, gift table or an in focus photo of us cutting our cake. He was kind & enthusiastic, but never posed us or took time to assure my train was laid perfectly. He didn't take us to "all the best places" and did not take beautiful photos that were in focus. We paid the extra $800 to get a disc & the rights to all the photos, thinking they would turn out beautiful. We paid Victoria's for a professional wedding photographer. That is not what we received. We can never replace the photos we missed out on. When we confronted Brian (co-owner/manager) he was completely unapologetic and indifferent. He already had our money. Why should we expect him to care? Victoria's did not hold up their end of the contract and we ended up getting screwed.
12/22/2012Always & Forever Weddings and Receptions
Jerad and I would like to leave a testimonial to the great services you and your staff provide. We were married 04-12-2011 at 6:00 pm. 14 in attendance at your Las Vegas wedding venues - Lakeside. Found you on the internet and knew immediately this was the perfect surrounding for our wedding. It was off the Vegas strip (most important) and in a beautiful/quiet community. I had called the staff several times to change types of flower, number of flowers and corsages etc, they were always very nice and I NEVER felt like a bother. The groom was very late for the wedding due to a limo service I HAD BOOKED (not the service Always and Forever suggested), fortunately we had booked extra time at the site. The young lady organizing the event this day was absolutely wonderful - great personality, great person - , she just rolled with the set backs and everything fell into place. The photographer was AMAZING, she took great pics and was very personable to EVERYONE. The flowers I picked were calla lillies - purple. They were darker than Id have liked however they were very FRESH and well arranged - not disappointed! Clergy very funny and great at making the environment fun and calm - he was perfect for our personalities. Jackie the limo driver was absolutely GREAT, this lady is a person of culture and wisdom, she is a true asset to your team. This was a wonderful experience! Would recommend this location without a doubt not to mention April in Vegas is wonderful - everything was in bloom and temp of 70-75 F.
07/30/2015Mon Bel Ami Wedding Chapel
Mon Bel Ami is the perfect venue for a chapel wedding. Don’t be alarmed when you first see where Mon Bel Ami chapel is located 607 Las Vegas Blvd. (the last chapel at the end of wedding chapel strip). Its location might make you want to just turn around and go back in the opposite direction. Hold on… Don’t judge this chapel by its location. Yes, I was initially alarmed also, but once you’re inside this charming chapel… Wow! You’ve just entered into your storybook wedding with the ambiance, décor and adornment for a perfect wedding. On the day of our wedding, Carrie, our WC, made sure that everything was set. The Bride had her waiting compartment that was secluded and comfortable. While everyone else was being escorted to the chapel, the bride was insulated in a cooled fanned section, awaiting her first appearance and momentous walk down the aisle… It was beautiful! The minister, Anthony “Tony,” was great! Our photographer, Kerry, was fantastic also! He beautifully captured the intimate ambiance of our wedding nuptials. To complete the experience, our limo driver, Adrian, was totally engaged and concluded our perfect wedding event. Mon Bel Ami offers several wedding packages. There are packages for every budget. We purchased the “Splendid Wedding Package.” Since everything is ala cart between packages, we added a small reception with cake and champagne in the gazebo with our wedding package. Perfect! The Mon Bel Ami is a charismatic wedding chapel that is perfect for any wedding. Erick & Sapretta Johnson
12/12/2012Mon Bel Ami Wedding Chapel
Our ceremony on 12-8-12 was just about flawless. It worked out very well. Everyone from the limo driver to each staff member was courteous, helpful, polite and kind - and smiling the entire time. The minister was well spoken and had such kind words and delivered them with sincerity and love. The photographer captured very endearing moments. We feel he caught the love that flows from our hearts to one another perfectly. We wish we could have purchased ALL of the photos. It was difficult to choose. So many of our friends and family have asked where the ceremony took place and who the photographer was. We were happy and proud to tell them about Mon Bel Ami even referred them to the website and gave a few the number.From the very first inquiry until the limo driver dropped us off back at our hotel the service was top notch. We spoke candidly about the things that "could" happen with the gazebo ceremony like cars, helicopters etc. We knew those things could possibly be heard on the video and wanted to take the chance any way. There were no hidden fees, costs, or fine print that was not told to us right up front. This was very important to us. We did not feel pressured to purchase additional pictures nor did we feel rushed. Mon Bel Ami provided the kind of service they said they would. We will always remember this special day and glad we chose Mon Bel Ami.
My wife and I got married at this chapel this past Friday and it was Wonderful .Limo was new and clean and the driver was on time and professional .The chapel was the best we have seen in Las Vegas , it was clean and beautifully decorated ,even the colors match my wife's dress .the planner/photographer was very nice and patient , we had the package B with 18 pictures and when we got home to view the disk we had 32 pictures instead which made my bride very happy , we also purchased all of the optional photos at the end and they are totally worth it .The flower bouquet It was given to my bride was beautiful and fresh .the ceremony was very nice , our minister did an awesome job and we were able to say our own vows.We loved the webcam be sure to take advantage of this service ,my 8 year old had to stay home with grandma due to school ,but she got to watch mom and dad getting married live .My family absolutely loved it and said it was the most fun they'd ever had at a wedding.

12/21/2016Plaza Hotel Wedding Chapel and Florist
Had an awesome stay at this newly remodeled classic - Oh how we LOVE the Plaza Hotel. You can not beat their location - at the head of Fremont street and minutes from all the Bars and Casinos we like to stumble to ...The rooms are very large for Vegas - and now with the remodel, they have all the stuff we have come to expect from a hotel - flat screen TV, new showers and linens ... The value of the hotel was great, in fact after we checked out, the total bill came to $64, that was when we realized that the $170 that we won over the 2 nights actually paid for the room, 2 nights of drinking and almost everything else we spent at the Plaza - #freestay #stayandplay #valuecasino #winning #winners #awesome Thank you again Plaza for being such a great place to stay - and #thankyou for booking us into the #plazahotel #casablancaexpress @casablancaexpress @cbetravel
Clean, upscale hotel on the strip. I love The Venetian because all the rooms are suites - that means spacious!! My girlfriends and I stayed in a suite for a bachelorette party. We fit 7 of us (2 beds, 1 pullout couch bed, and 1 air mattress) in one of the suites. We were in the Venezia tower, and they have a smaller garden pool there. The pool area was amazing - it was quiet, and next to the Bouchon restaurant. It was a nice change from the beach pool full of kids and nasty people at Mandalay Bay. This felt like an adult exclusive pool, and lounge chairs and towels were not difficult to come by. It was a hot weekend, but the poolside felt great. The hotel room was the perfect size for all of us and service was fine - we got all the extra towels we needed. I would go again, especially for a nice romantic weekend.
