Weddings in Black and White

It’s a wedding chapel with a powerful high-contrast twist. The social-media-worthy, 800-square-foot art installation titled “‘Til Death Do Us Part” is tucked away inside the Pearl Concert Theater at the Palms Casino Resort and open for official wedding ceremonies. Created by Guatemalan-American graphic designer and visual artist Joshua Vides, the illustrative, immersive pop-up display featuring his signature black and white look is a nod to Las Vegas’ famous A Little White Wedding Chapel. “White and Black Wedding” offers four different packages with the one-hour “Our Marriage Looks Perfect -- On Instagram” for $250, followed by “The Shotgun Wedding” for $500.

Circa will reshape Downtown in 2020

It’s been more than three decades, but Downtown Las Vegas is positioned for its new revelation by pioneer developer Derek Stevens, co-owner of the D and Golden Gate properties, who is building Circa Resort & Casino from the ground up after purchasing a whole city block. The new 777-room property is expected to open in December 2020 and will be the tallest tower north of the Strip. Highlights will include a huge sports book situated stadium-style on three-levels, the famous Vegas Vickie sign inside the lobby, a roof with six pools, a 125-foot TV screens, capacity for 4,000 guests and “Garage Mahal,” a new parking and transit center focused on rideshares.
