Not everyone gets married by Elvis at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, although most do! Our Traditional and Themed weddings are nearly as popular, although Elvis seems to be the real draw at our chapel. We thought we’d take the time to introduce you to some of our “Elvi”—If you’ve married here or renewed your vows in the last few years, one of these faces may be familiar!
Chapel owner Ron Decar (above) does a pretty mean Elvis, but he’s also a licensed minister. (He’ll appear in a very different suit when he marries traditional wedding couples.) For our themed wedding packages, you may have seen Ron as James Bond, Austin Powers, Dracula, Zombie Elvis, The Godfather, Merlin, Darth Vader,Gomez Addams…the list goes on and on. Ron has a very fun, and VERY busy life! For many years Ron appeared at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas as lead singer in the Folies Bergere, also enjoying a notable national singing career…before he was Elvis…or Reverend Ron!
Roland August (above) might be described as our most enthusiastic Elvis. If he is/was YOUR Elvis, you’ll remember him always for making you feel comfortable and going out of his way to personalize your ceremony and make it feel special. Roland, too, had a spectacular singing career before he was bitten by the Elvis bug in Vegas! Roland sometimes makes an appearance as a “hunky dude” in our Egyptian, Western or Beach Party themed weddings.
Michael Conti (above) hails from Texas. He was having a “normal” career as a singer when someone told him he sounded like Elvis…and kinda looked like him, too. It may come as no surprise that many Elvis’s in Vegas wound up here because they were told the very same thing. And none of them would give it up for anything. Believe us when we say, marrying folks as Elvis is the BEST job ever! Michael is also featured in our Bluez Brothers and Rock’n Roll Themed Weddings.
Mini-Elvis is not on our staff, but he can be called in to do the honors as an upgrade if you’re looking for a REALLY unique Elvis Wedding. For more information on any of our Elvis Wedding Packages, give us a call at 702-384-0771 or visit us and chat online at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com !
