Las Vegas Elopement idea at the Valley of Fire

With everything going on in the world right now, intimate weddings and elopements are trending. With that in mind,  Cactus Collective Weddings shared with us an incredibly gorgeous Las Vegas elopement idea that we know you'll love. Read on and scroll down to experience Cactus Collective Weddings' newest micro wedding location, Valley of Fire. A nature preservation area covering nearly 46,000 acres and about 90 minutes away from Las Vegas.  This state park derives its name from red sandstone formations, the Aztec Sandstone, formed from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago. A breathtaking wedding location to celebrate your love. 

You will not want to miss all the beauty and hear about how eco-friendly having an elopement is. McKenzi from Cactus Collective Wedding goes into more detail, so keep reading. Las Vegas wedding photographer,  Elizabeth Burgi Photography captured all this beauty.

How many guests should I invite?

If you do plan to invite a few friends and family members to your elopement, keep it at around 10. Anything more than 10 guests leads into a bigger wedding. Paper and Home created these lovely wedding invites that you'll cherish forever.

As it stands now, it is challenging to have any celebration with family and friends. However you decide to celebrate your marriage, whether it be at the courthouse, an elopement or just your parents it is widely acceptable to set up a wedding registry. 

Your nearest and dearest will more than understand that there will not be a post-elopement celebration, but would still love to send you a gift to celebrate. After your elopement send a marriage announcement with the details of your registry.

ELOPEMENTS ARE SUSTAINABLE

From Cactus Collective Weddings - Set against the glowing amber rocks of the Valley of Fire, this elopement theme was Pops of Blue. We wanted to juxtapose the glamor and whimsy of the couple’s glitzy style with the rugged desert rocks.

What we love most about our weddings are sustainable from start to finish. Elopements, in general, are extremely sustainable because you usually have no guests or at most, a handful. This cuts down on travel pollution, food consumption, waste, etc.
