On a recent summer evening, Patrick and Kim came all the way from Glasgow, Scotland to be married in Las Vegas in our Viva Las Vegas Outdoor Gazebo. (You might be surprised to learn that nearly 20% of our wedding couples come from abroad to get married in Las Vegas, with Elvis…or…not.) The couple had only just become engaged two days before their arrival in Vegas–on a road trip from Seattle to Dallas.
We asked how they found Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel and they said they were Googling chapels and loved our Outdoor Gazebo as soon as they saw it. Kim and Patrick added that they appreciated our clear and friendly website. They also spent some time with our vivacious and helpful wedding staffer, Olivia, chatting online.
According to the new Mr. and Mrs., “We loved our wedding! Everyone at Viva Las Vegas was so friendly and welcoming and made things so easy. Other couples from abroad probably have more time in Vegas arranged and we only had two nights, but in that time we planned an awesome wedding. In fact we arranged our wedding from scratch on the same day thanks to you guys!” And WE loved hearing such positive feedback. Kind words from brides and grooms always make us want to try even harder to make EVERY wedding that special.
Many couples find that our many all-inclusive and affordable wedding packages in Las Vegas make it possible for them to travel from around the world, visit several of the States, then be married, all for the price of a “regular” church wedding back home. While many family and friends might not be able to come along, they CAN watch the wedding streaming live online from anywhere in the world.
Patrick continued, “We’ve been together 11 years, and Kim didn’t see the proposal coming. Being married just the two of us in Vegas felt just right for us and we loved the personal touch the minister put into the vows. When the great photographer showed us our names up in lights outside the chapel, that was amazing. We’ve been on the holiday of a lifetime and we’re going home married. You guys were a huge part of that. We thank you.” Thank YOU, Patrick and Kim! We wish you all the best for a happy lifetime together. We hope you’ll come see us for an anniversary vow renewal one day, and a road tour of the OTHER half of the country. 🙂
