Yes, you can get married anywhere and become a dependent on his E-2 visa. You can also apply for your work authorization as a dependent on the E-2 visa.

Assuming you are in the U.S. currently, & in legal non-immigrant status, then you can apply for a change of status to E-2 (dependent) if you get married. Marriages in Las Vegas are valid, as long as it is solemnized by someone authorized to do so by law, such as a Minister, Superior Court Judge, etc.
