El Dorado Canyon Nelson Ghost Town Weddings

A popular desert option besides Red Rock or Valley of Fire is the El Dorado Mine wedding.


As the oldest, richest and most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada, the Techatticup Mine in the deliciously scenic El Dorado Canyon is located only 45 minutes outside Las Vegas.

Located in the official township of Nelson, there’s not much around these parts other than the picturesque El Dorado Canyon with the historic Techatticup Mill remains as the crown jewel. Located on State Route 165 south of the bustling Las Vegas metropolis, the road winds into Nelson’s Landing on the Colorado River.
