Famous Couples Married in Las Vegas Part 2

Celebrity weddings in Las Vegas
We’ve had a few “celebrity weddings” at Viva Las Vegas, including one to a cardboard groom—Edward!

These days, not only movie stars, but rock and sports stars, too, make Las Vegas their celebrity wedding destination. Here’s the gossip on a few more celebrity weddings in Las Vegas:

In 1987, Bruce Willis married Demi Moore in a private suite at the Golden Nugget, one of downtown’s glitziest hotels. Thirteen years and three daughters later, they called it quits. Moore remarried (Ashton Kutcher) in 2005 (not in Las Vegas)–and we all know how that turned out… And, BTW, Ashton Kutcher visited Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel with the late Brittany Murphy in 2003 to promote their movie, Just Married.

Mega rock star Jon Bon Jovi married Dorothea Hurley, his high school sweetheart, in 1989 at the Graceland Wedding Chapel. They both wore jeans and leather jackets and had their cab driver as the only witness. The couple now has four children. Thank goodness some famous folks who marry in Vegas manage to make love last!

Basketball giants Michael Jordan and Dennis Rodman were both married in Vegas, Jordan at the Little White Wedding Chapel, and Rodman at The Little Chapel of the Flowers, both right down the street from Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. Rodman’s marriage to Baywatch actress Carmen Electra in 1998 didn’t last more than a year. Sadly, Jordan didn’t fare much better with his vows.


The unusual pairing of Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton took place at the Little Church of the West on May 5, 2000. Since the split, just three years later, Jolie has had her “Billy Bob” tattoo on her arm (mostly) removed. Those two also wore jeans to their wedding, and wore vials of each other’s blood to boot. Turns out, that kind of commitment wasn’t the ticket. We are happy Jolie has found happiness today with Brad Pitt. (Jolie has also visited Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, as a guest. Her gorgeous photo graces our lobby!)

And who can forget the 55 hours that Britney Spears was married to childhood friend, Jason Alexander? They did the crazy-Vegas-movie thing, overdoing New Year’s in 2004 and getting hitched at A Little White Wedding Chapel. They filed for annulment the very next day. Like you do.

What’s the moral of all this Las Vegas wedding chaos? Your odds of a happy marriage, as a “regular” person in love, are likely WAY better than most celebrity couples. If you’re serious about marriage, but want to have a fun, unique and still romantic ceremony in Las Vegas, visit us at Viva Las Vegas Weddings. It’s where couples return again and again. to renew vows with the SAME person! 🙂
