Taking the stress out of getting married in Vegas
And delivering your dream elopement
Your wedding day is all about you, your partner, and the love you share. Other little touches may complement the two of you and your relationship, but they’re nice to haves rather than essentials.
At Cactus Collective Weddings we understand your desire to cut the frills and the big budget without detracting from the significance of your day.
You want an intimate elopement with a handful of guests at an offbeat location you can afford. Most of all, you want a local wedding professional who knows your destination inside out and can help you make the most of your special day.
Cactus Collective Weddings was set up for exactly these reasons
If you’ve always dreamed of getting married in Vegas and eloping in style, then we can help. Since 2017 my team and I have worked with hundreds of couples from around the world to bring their Vegas desert wedding to life. And it all started when my then fiancé (now husband) proposed.
I’ve been in your shoes
Matt and I wanted a short engagement and a wedding on our own terms. Being in Vegas puts a huge number of “Wham-bam thank you ma’am” marriage options on our doorstep. But none of them felt right.
Eloping doesn’t have to mean going through the motions
I wanted a simple ceremony but ‘simple’ shouldn’t have to mean ‘dull.’ This was a big life event. I wanted a memorable location, and photos so good they would instantly remind me of how happy I felt in that moment.
Having photographed hundreds of outdoor weddings in the beautiful Nevada desert, I knew we could have a meaningful elopement. But back in 2016, when Matt and I got hitched, few Las Vegas wedding companies could deliver an unusual venue, quality photos, the officiant, and the little magical touches needed for an intimate ceremony.
Handling all of this myself convinced me that other couples probably wanted the same thing, but with the added bonus of someone removing the stress of organizing a destination wedding.
You deserve a stunning destination elopement that puts you, your partner and your love at the very heart of it
My team and I are here for you to lean on. We’ll handle as much or as little of your Vegas wedding planning as you’d like us to.
What we deliver
Secure your date, venue, officiant, photographer and photo editing when you book any of our collections, then personalize it with extra touches that suit your style.
We provide clear steps on how to give us the details we need to create the day you want. Whether your wedding is a week, month or year from now, we do everything possible to fulfill your requests.
Photography and photo editing are at the core of our collections. Clients say the images we photograph and edit are so good they look like they’re straight out of a magazine.

The best part of what we offer
A collection of beautiful Nevada desert locations.
There are lots of beautiful places to say “I do” in Las Vegas. We’ve secured the necessary permits — and in some cases exclusive venue rights — so you and your partner can have your wedding in the most stunning areas of Nevada.
As a team we’ve worked hard to secure these permissions. We respect the land and appreciate the role nature plays in giving you beautiful photos. As such, we always uphold the requests of the State and National parks these venues are in. To have the least impact, we only offer decorations and extra touches that don’t leave a lasting mark on the landscape.
Getting married in Vegas has a nostalgia unlike any other wedding destination
I love living in Nevada and I’m proud to be part of the Vegas wedding scene. Coordinating your intimate elopement would be my absolute honor.
Whether it’s on a whim or months away, reach out to us. We’ll make what seems impossible, possible.

“As an outdoor enthusiast, I moved to Las Vegas to enjoy the recreation that Red Rock Canyon and other desert locations in our area offer. After learning more about how I could minimize my impact on the environment, I knew that Leave No Trace’s values were aligned with the core of what we provide at Cactus Collective Weddings.”
