Red Rock Canyon

About Red Rock

Red Rock Canyon has been designated as a National Conservation Area by the Federal Government. It is governed by the Bureau of Land Management and they oversee administering park permits for weddings. The mountain ranges that make up Red Rock Canyon are a part of the Mojave Desert. It’s beautiful mountain peaks and geological features were created by the Keystone Thrust Fault. One of the highlights of Red Rock is the scenic drive which is a 13 mile one way journey. Visitors may stop at many beautiful viewing spots designated along the drive. The site known as Ice Box Canyon showcases seasonal waterfalls and there are many beautiful red rocks to climb on and an assortment of hiking trails to venture on to.

Helpful information about Red Rock Canyon

There are 3 designated ceremony sites

There are three areas the BLM has authorized for wedding ceremonies to take place. At this time the three areas are Red Rock overlook which is a picnic area close to route 169. All three choices require permits by law. As wedding planners we are authorized to obtain permits on our clients behalf.

The overlook is approximately one mile past the scenic drive entrance. If you choose to have your ceremony here.

The second place the BLM allows wedding ceremonies is the Amphitheater. The Amphitheater is located inside the scenic drive guard gate entrance. Ceremonies may be performed at the Amphitheater without venturing in to the scenic drive. The scenic drive is 13 miles long and one way driving is required.There are three areas the BLM has authorized for wedding ceremonies to take place.

The third option requires a half mile hike to get to and is a part of Calico Basin. This option requires hiking on a dirt trail and is not optimal for the elderly or formal occasions with a large guest count.

A Nelson Ghost Town elopement is trending:

Having a Nelson Ghost Town elopement is an easy and stress free. That is why it is becoming an increasingly desired spot for Vegas destination wedding couples looking for a unique, fun and picturesque backdrop for their nuptials. It is also considered one of the most romantic places to elope in Vegas. Nelson is on a private property located about an hour away from Las Vegas and is a historical landmark becoming increasingly popular with wedding couples. Nelson is located in the mountains of Eldorado Canyon, Nevada. It has a rich history making it very popular tourist attraction.

In this blog post I will share some of the photos we took from an Eldorado Canyon ghost town wedding I planned for one of my clients, Henk and Iris this summer.

Nelson Ghost Town is cradled in the mountains of Eldorado Canyon

Nelson is still used to this day as a Hollywood studio and backdrop for music videos. In fact 3000 Miles To Graceland was filmed there. This funny and entertaining YouTube video gives a walk through of Nelson Ghost Town also known as Eldorado Canyon Mine.

Check out this YouTube video showing the plane blowing in 3000 Miles to Graceland. It’s a clip from the movie and the plane crash at Nelson is what is left from the explosion.

I am my vendor team of professionals at Custom Las Vegas Weddings
had a blast seeing their love and admiring the fun they had there during their Nelson ghost town elopement. What a joy it was to be around them. They were such fun loving people and had quite a laugh. They especially love the romantic vintage atmosphere at Nelson Ghost Town. As you see from the photos, they are so in love and had the time of their life posing and exploring the props and site.

Nelson Ghost town in Eldorado Canyon has an old mine on the property which has daily guided tours. It showcases vintage relics such as old cars and buildings, old buildings, rusty antique trucks and more including a great collection of vintage signs. This makes a great backdrop for Nelson Ghost Town wedding photo tours, creating fun and romantic memories of a lifetime.

Nelson Ghost Town showcases quite a variety of old used vehicles and equipment, even mining equipment that was actually used back in the day when the Techatticup gold mine was operational. There are a host of props to use for the backdrop of a wedding as you can see from the photos below.

Fun times and cheeky peek a boo at Nelson Landing Eldorado Canyon Nevada

Having a Nelson Ghost Town elopement was the best choice for Henk and Iris. Iris is a photo officinato in the Netherlands and loved taking photos herself, even during her own wedding. She loved the vintage theme and it was her love of the idea that prompted them to have a Nelsons Landing wedding. They had such an incredible time exploring and posing for photos with the old props, crashed airplane, air-stream trailer and they even decided to get in the old rusty tubs.

A perfect ending to a beautiful day. Congratulations you two!

Some people say it only takes only 20 minutes to get to Nelson Ghost Town. I will caution you here on that and add, it really depends on where you start from and what the traffic is like on the day. It has always taken me 1 hour to travel there because the road used to get there is under construction and Las Vegas traffic has become more congested recently.

Here is a map below showing directions to Nelson’s Landing where the Ghost Town is. You will want to leave extra time to get there if you are traveling in your own vehicle.

map and directions to Nelson Ghost Town

To get to the Nelson’s Landing take US-95 South toward Boulder City. You will want to keep alert because the Searchlight exit comes up quickly on the right just before you reach Boulder City. It’s a very small sign and easy to miss but if you do miss it you have to go to Boulder City and do a U-Turn. As you travel toward Searchlight there is a large dry lake bed (on your right) at about the ten mile marker. When you pass the dry lake bed, you will a large solar panel field and that is your marker to look to the left. On the left is a very small sign (Exit 165) that says Nelson on your left. Take that exit and drive another 10-12 miles and it will take you right into the town of Nelson, Nevada where the ghost town is.

We hope to have the opportunity to meet you and be a part of your special day.
