If someone tells you they’re getting married in Las Vegas, the expected scene isn’t too hard to picture: A standard room filled with folding chairs, a nondescript arbor covered in flowers, and maybe a few strands of twinkling lights thrown in for ambiance. You can toss that imagery aside because a new art installation at the Palms Casino Resort called “Til Death Do Us Part” from visual artist Joshua Vides is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

At its most basic elements, this chapel is a black-and-white room that looks more comic book page than real life (in the very best way possible). And such is Vides style; his colorless designs have caught the eye of celebrities like Lebron James, for whom he once created a black-and-white basketball court.

The venue is inspired by the details in Las Vegas’ most iconic wedding spot, A Little White Wedding Chapel. Starting on January 18, there are four different packages available for lovebirds looking to share their nuptials in an Instagram-worthy way.

  • Our Marriage Looks Perfect—on Instagram: For $250, couples will have an hour in the chapel. Don’t forget to bring your own photographer!

  • The Shotgun Wedding: This $500, one-hour ceremony comes with time for photos and a complimentary bottle of champagne for celebrating.

  • Black, White, and Wed: If you’re looking to make a night of it, this package comes with a chapel ceremony, a four-course dinner at Scotch 80 Prime or Vetri Cucina, beverage package options, and complimentary VIP admission at APEX Social Club for the after party. Prices for this option run between $500 and $5,500.

  • For Better or For Worse: Turn your vows into a real celebration with a one-night stay in the Make Good Choices Suite at the Palms, a two-hour catered reception with various food stations and passed hors d’oeuvres, and a beverage package for your friends and family. Prices for this option start at $4,500.

Talk about a party ice breaker. If this sounds like something you and your betrothed would be into, head to the Palms Casino Resort website for more information and booking options.
