With a 35-foot-tall, fire-spewing mantis sculpture guarding its entrance and a treehouse-inspired playground in its central courtyard, the Downtown Container Park on Fremont Street is a clear example of the new downtown Las Vegas. Funded by Downtown Project, the Tony Hsieh-backed investment group dedicated to neighborhood development, the Container Park is a shopping center and entertainment destination, its repurposed shipping containers and cube-like boutiques housing cocktail bars, gourmet popsicle shops and quirky toy stores.
However, a new tenant is connecting the property to a classic Las Vegas institution — and hopefully making some people very happy in the process.
The Lucky Little Chapel, which also has a location on Casino Center Boulevard, recently opened a wedding chapel at the Container Park. Packages run from the $75 Fakeout — a faux wedding to freak out your family and friends — to the $999 Lucky Jackpot, a very real and binding affair that includes 35 digital photos, gown and tux rentals, hair and makeup, bouquet and more. Other options will let you add features a la carte or get married at the Container Park slide or under that flaming mantis.
Civil and religious ceremonies are available, and the chapel can host up to 25 guests or provide a witness if you’re eloping sans companions. Couples are also welcome to bring their own officiant, if they’d prefer. Not optional, however, is the official Clark County marriage license, because in Las Vegas, walk-in weddings are welcome, but you better have the license first.
The Lucky Little Chapel at Downtown Container Park is located at 707 Fremont St. For more information, visit luckylittlechapel.com.
