Green Valley Ranch Resort & Casino recently hosted a showcase for wedding planners and I have to say....It was extraordinary!  Green Valley Ranch, commonly known as The GVR to locals, is one of those resorts that I have always loved, but tended to gloss over for weddings.  It's on the east side of town, and trust me when I tell you that the east side - west side rivalry is alive and well in Las Vegas!  In all seriousness though, while GVR has always been a favorite of mine as a guest, with the majority of my couples coming in for destination weddings, they want "Vegas" - as in, the strip.  Some couples worry that hosting a wedding off-strip can dilute that experience, but I have to tell you....Greev Valley Ranch is so worth the 25 minute drive!

Set against the mountains of Henderson, Green Valley Ranch offers all of the amenities of the major strip casinos without the additional and often unnecessary size and noise.  There is a beautiful, well appointed casino, numerous lounges, great onsite restaurants, and guests are just steps away from shopping and additional dining options at The District, and outdoor pavilion which often features music and art.   The pools and cabanas are modern and luxurious, the spa offers a wide range of services, and the grounds are meticulously kept with photo opportunities everywhere!

For one afternoon, Las Vegas wedding planners were treated like wedding guests.  We toured the chapel and enjoyed champagne and butler passed hors d'oeuvres and were then moved from one location to the next, each designed and decorated by some of Las Vegas' best decor houses, with themed cocktails and food at each stop before finally settling on the poolside patio for an exquisite luncheon and wine pairing. 

For the right couple - destination or local - this is a must see location.  Thanks to the team for inviting me out and giving me the chance to see just how good you guys are!

Always...

Black and White furniture groupings add a glamour to an outdoor affair. Don;t be afraid of graphic in an outdoor setting.  They work!
Keeping a neutral palette of white and black allows the design and textured metal vases to stand out.

Ceremonies can beheld on or in front of the staircase, which can be decorated in a number of ways.  
This rustic and romantic wedding set up featured wood, candles, roses, and greenery.
Boxes filled with candles and roses were set as accent pieces throughout the staircase. The gold holders are a nice touch. 
Ask yourself if you would feel comfortable taking these stairs in your wedding dress, or if you prefer to use them as a backdrop. 

A monogrammed gate served as the backdrop to the mock wedding ceremony on the lawn. 
Crushed pink linens and petit floral arrangements pop against the backdrop of Green Valley Ranch. 
Gold sequence glitter play off of the light and look glamorous against the white furniture.
