Engaged clients looking to take their nuptials experience to new heights this fall might consider a unique helicopter wedding with Maverick Helicopters.
The Las Vegas air tour operator, which flies couples by whirlybird over the Strip, the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon for nuptials in Nevada's Valley of Fire, is offering a Celebrations promotion to clients tying the knot with the firm by Dec. 31.
Under the program, they'll receive a certificate good for a Vegas Nights flight, redeemable in 2010 during the month in which they were married for a romantic evening helicopter flight over the Strip.
"We truly are a unique company in that each wedding is special and significant to us," said Leanne Semenza, Maverick Helicopters' wedding coordinator. "By giving away an anniversary gift, it's our way of being part of your commitment and sharing in the celebration of your love in the future."
Semenza, who, according to Maverick, has planned more than 1,000 weddings, can arrange custom nuptials elements such as officiants, limousine transport, flowers, cakes, champagne, hors d'oeuvres, photographs and videographers.
"Every couple has a unique idea of what their wedding should be like," she said. "Therefore, we have a variety of services and can tailor [a] wedding to meet [client] expectations."
Maverick offers five wedding packages: the Las Vegas Strip wedding, priced at $1,399; the Valley of Fire wedding, $3,529; the Grand Canyon Wedding, $4,099; the Grand Canyon Sunset Wedding, $4,299; and the Sunset Brilliance Wedding, $4,799.
The 4.5-hour Sunset Brilliance package takes couples by helicopter over the Hoover Dam and West Rim of the Grand Canyon before landing on a private bluff amid the red rocks of the Valley of Fire for the wedding ceremony, champagne toast and photos. Newlyweds then reboard the copter for a flight past Glitter Gulch and the Strip.
The deal includes roundtrip luxury limousine transfer from hotel to Maverick's terminal; helicopter ride for bride, groom and three guests; a civil or religious ceremony; bridal bouquet and groom's boutonniere; photography and video package, including in-flight DVD; wedding cake; and champagne toast, hors d'oeuvres and beverages.
