General Questions

How do we obtain a marriage license?

To obtain your marriage license, both parties must appear in person before a clerk at a Clark County Marriage Bureau location. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. Identification to prove your name and age is required. Blood tests are NOT required.

How long does it take to receive our marriage license?

A marriage license is issued the same day a couple applies. There is no waiting period to get married after the marriage license has been issued. Marriage licenses are good for one year from date of issue.

Is a Nevada marriage license valid for a Grand Canyon wedding?

Vows exchanged on one of our Grand Canyon wedding packages are technically in Arizona. Your wedding officiant will re-pronounce you on the return flight once you re-enter Las Vegas air space to legally bind your nuptial agreement.

How do we obtain proof of marriage?

After your Maverick Helicopter wedding ceremony, our staff will file the marriage certificate with the bureau within 10 days. Once filed, you can order a certified marriage certificate (proof of marriage) from the bureau's website.

What responsibilities do the witnesses have?

The witnesses will only need to show their photo ID and sign the marriage license. They do not need to do anything else.

Can we review the portfolios of your photographers?

Of course!

Can we provide our own photographer and exclude the costs for your photographer?

Yes, you may bring your own photographer. If you do, you will want to select either our Gold or Silver packages.

Should we bring our own camera as well?

Even if you use the services of a professional photographer, we always recommend you bring along your own camera in order to take some pictures during the private helicopter flight. There will be plenty of amazing photo opportunities.

Will there be shade in the canyon?

Whether you elect to have the ceremony performed at the Grand Canyon or Valley of Fire, our exclusive landing sites have plenty of large umbrellas that shade the rustic picnic tables.

What sights will we see during our Grand Canyon wedding flight?

In addition to the canyon itself, you will be able to see the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Lake Las Vegas and Fortification Hill from the air.

Can Maverick Helicopters host our wedding reception?

Yes! Maverick Helicopters' Las Vegas Boulevard terminal boasts a private event center capable of hosting groups as large as 100. It features ample space for a catering company to operate. A DJ booth can be set up. Many aspects of the space can also be customized to match the theme of your celebration, from the lighting to the multiple television displays.

How many guests can attend our Maverick Helicopters wedding ceremony?

Our helicopters can seat up to seven passengers. If you have more people in your party, you can charter additional helicopters to accommodate your wedding party. Remember that your photographer and wedding officiant will need seats.

Can we pay for additional helicopters, and how much it will cost?

Additional helicopters can be purchased for your ceremony, and the cost is approximately $1,000 less than the platinum package price.

If we have our own decorations, can we incorporate them into the ceremony?

Absolutely, just keep in mind that our helicopters do have size and weight restrictions for transporting all items.

We would like to include a small banquet with snacks and cold champagne. Do you have a table at the landing site?

We do have picnic tables set up at our landing site, and we do include hors d’oeuvres and champagne in the package pricing.

How many people can the limousine seat?

The limos we normally reserve can seat six. We can book a limo for up to eight people if needed. For parties larger than that, we typically reserve more than one vehicle to transport everyone to and from our facility. There are larger limos that can be reserved but there would be additional fees associated with that.

Can we choose the wedding officiant?

We work with several different officiants, and while you can make special requests as to who you would prefer, we cannot guarantee they will be available. You are also welcome to hire your own officiant for the ceremony.

What is the normal amount for tips, and to whom should we give them?

The gratuities for the pilots and limo drivers are included in your package price. If you would like to add a tip for the minister and photographer, it is completely at your discretion. When people do offer the officiant and photographer tips, it is usually between $20 and $50.

Who can help me plan my wedding?

Maverick's in-house wedding coordinator will help you plan every detail of your special day. Our wedding packages include the minister, photographer, bouquet and boutonniere, hors d’oeuvres, champagne and wedding cake. Our experience and knowledge can help guide you through each aspect of your planning with the rest of your vendors to help your wedding day be problem-free.

Will the helicopter mess up my hair?

We realize that brides as well as the bridal party put time and effort into their hair so it will look just right on the special day and in photographs. The helicopter’s rotor is not started until all passengers are inside, so your hair stays looking its best. We also offer versatile, flexible ear protection that can be worn in several different ways to accommodate various hairstyles.

Is it safe to wear high heels on the landing pad?

Our in-house wedding planner thinks of everything, even your shoes! Maverick’s landing pad is smooth, so you and your wedding party will be able to walk steadily in high heels.

What days and times do Maverick wedding packages take place?

We offer flexible scheduling so you can get married when you want to, day or night. Our in-house wedding planner will help you reserve the date and time perfect for you.

Where can you get married?

We offer weddings at different destinations - over the Las Vegas Strip, a Maui island landing and our most popular destination, the Grand Canyon. It's hard to imagine a more stunning backdrop. You and your guests will be in awe of the views, and you'll have the most amazing wedding wphotographs to help you relive your special day.

Where will we land for our Grand Canyon wedding?

Maverick has a private landing spot within the Grand Canyon, so you won’t have to worry about tourists disturbing your nuptials and interrupting the ceremony.
