I agree with the PPs about hosting something in Vegas for 50 people. But remember, having a "reception" can be as elaborate or simple as you want it to be. You could have everyone back to your suite and have heavy appetizers for food (Masterpiece Cuisine gets great reviews and caters tons of in suite receptions) and buy your own liquor (which saves money). Then you could go hit a club after everyone's been fed, etc. As for outdoor ceremonies, not sure what your budget is but some of the popular ones on this board seem to be (1) Mandalay Bay's "Valley of the Falls" location; (2) Caesar's Palace's Juno Garden or Venus Garden; (3) Primrose Court at the Wynn (pricy, but gorgeous); (4) Flamingo Garden. I'm sure there are more places but those are the ones that come to mind. All of the hotels' websites have contact info and some list the prices on the website so you can get a sense of the pricing. Good luck with your planning!
