Located directly across from the Bellagio on the Las Vegas strip, Mon Ami Gabi is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner while you enjoy the Bellagio water show. Also a great idea for your wedding reception as they have 2 private rooms that seat up to 40 guests as well as being able to buyout the entire Patio for yourself. Mon Ami Gabi is a French bistro that is always updating their menu with authentic french cuisine. For the sommelier inside all of us they boast an extensive menu of over 80 french wines. My favorite starters is the Onion soup au gratin (literally the best french onion soup I have ever had) and then for the entree, the steak bordelaise with caramelized onions and red wine sauce. You can find Mon Ami Gabi inside the Paris Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas strip.

Inside the Wynn you will find one of the best seafood restaurants in Las Vegas. In fact, its regarded as one of the best restaurants in the world for its variety of seafood from around the globe. The real catch to this restaurant is the beautiful view of the Lake of Dreams. Its a 3 acre lake surrounded by forest. The enchanting vibe will make you forget you are in the middle of a bustling city, but more like in the middle of a fairy tale. On top of the beautiful scenery, they also offer a great light show to go with it. If you are not familiar with the Wynn just know this; Everything here is a 12 out of 10. Really, you could pick any restaurant there and be knocked off your feet. This one in particular just adds a perfect touch of romance to your Las Vegas wedding.

One of the most romantic things to do after your wedding is to take a walk into Bellagio’s Botanical Garden. Even if you have seen it before. Every season 140 expert horticulturist arrange rare flowers, plants and trees over ponds bridges and gazebos to match the seasons.

There are two different places I will recommend for the Gondolas. We will stick with the more vegas style one first. At the Venetian you can get a private gondola ride that will make you feel like you are in Venice. The gondolier navigating your gondola by street cafes serenades you as you pass float under balconies and bridges. Venetian also offers great wedding packages with the gondola rides. Gentlemen, this will score you some points with your bride. The second gondola option is a more intimate choice for those who wish to make a romantic evening floating in the water front of the Monte Lago in Lake Las Vegas with the city lights in the distance. Sunset is the perfect time to embark on your evening of romance. The lake is very still and looks like a mirror reflecting the sunset and gorgeous surroundings of Lake Las Vegas. With your cruise you will have the option of appetizers or a full gourmet dinner. The Gondolier port at the golf club (giving you a private moment wink wink) and come back with your dinner and champagne. Monte Lago is also a great place to host your Las Vegas wedding. This is one of my personal favorites!

This Titan towers at 550 feet giving you a unique view of the strip and entire Las Vegas Valley. At night you will look down at the sea of blinking lights we call the Las Vegas strip.
