My husband and I were married here back in June of 2004. The staff were amazing. I was getting ready for the wedding and went to put on my dress and it was like 3 sizes too big! Somehow when I had picked it up the store had given me the wrong one and stupid me didn’t try it on before we flew to Vegas. We called the chapel and they said to bring the dress and they would “make it work”. We got there and the staff painstakingly pinned the heck out of my dress so I could walk down the aisle in it and get my pictures taken. They went well above the call of duty! You cannot even tell from the video or my pictures that the dress didn’t fit. We are planning on getting remarried there for our 10th anniversary and cannot wait to go back!
Starring, the Hillbilly Cat. Better known as, Elvis Presley! When Elvis first came onto the scene, he was called ” The Hillbilly Cat.” His band had a strong back beat and they were into that cool rockabilly sound. Ian & Kristine are from the O.C. and they chose Rockabilly Elvis for their big wedding day. They made their day more of an event. I picked the girls up in a beautiful white stretch limousine at the Golden Nugget on Freemont Street and we were off. The gals were escorted to our awesome Elvis and Priscilla Suite for hair and makeup.
The Suite is amazing with a Pink Cadillac coming out of the wall and the gates of Graceland surounding you. There is a large lit up mirror and artist chairs for that special movie set feeling too. The gals enjoyed a light lunch and were ready to get glammed up. Our artistry team then began their beautiful work of hair and makeup for all of the girls in the wedding party. These gals were transformed into rockabilly babes! You can see that for yourselves in the photo below. Kristine our beautiful Bride was a sight indeed! She was so happy and she really felt like her wedding was turned into a great day event which made it that more special. It’s always so rewarding to hear that from a Bride. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings we really go all out for your requests.
The guys rocked it too, in colorful bowling type shirts. They looked great. Oh, and when Elvis walked the Bride down the aisle….the guests wailed. Well it’s one for the money, two for the show! It really was a show with our Rockabilly Elvis wedding. Ian and Kristine you were a big hit! Best wishes to you both on behalf of the staff at Viva Las Vegas Weddings.”Viva Vegas” is all I can say. Everyone had so much fun including me! If you are looking to get married or thinking about renewing your wedding vows…Give us a holler here at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel so that we can put together your eventful day. Oh, and I highly recommend our Glam-Team, ladies~ you will love their work and the special bondng time you’ll have with your wedding party before you strut down that aisle on Elvis’ arm. Also, as tradition still stands for many Brides..get dressed and dolled up at the Chapel before your wedding, so that when the Groom first sees you on your wedding day, it is when you are walking down the aisle and you are simply taking his breath away.
