50th Anniversary Elvis Wedding Vow Renewal at Viva Las Vegas Weddings

Elvis Vegas Vow Renewal
Linda and Frank celebrate 50 years of marriage with Elvis, family and friends!

Recently, Linda and Frank came all the way from Texas to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary (on the exact day and hour!) with an Elvis Blue Hawaii vow renewal at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. It was one of the most touching vow renewal ceremonies anyone here can remember. Tears were shed as Elvis crooned in the “ocean mist” and the wedding vows were exchanged. But, everyone got to their feet and danced jubilantly afterward to “Viva Las Vegas!”

Shall we share a fun bit of trivia about this lovely couple? We were amazed when the beautiful bride, Linda, revealed to us that she was wearing her ORIGINAL wedding gown from 50 years ago! This may have been the first time any bride has appeared in her original dress at our chapel after 50 years! (If we are wrong, we’d love to know…But we’re pretty sure that this is a rare event among vow renewal ceremonies!)

If you’re interested in renewing your vows on an anniversary (not necessarily your 25th or even 50th), the Elvis Blue Hawaii Wedding is equal parts fun and nostalgia, just right for the occasion. But we can customize any of our Elvis or Themed Wedding Packages for your light-hearted-yet-meaningful vow renewal. (And, yes, there are couples who renew vows in a traditional way, too, often in one of our outdoor chapels.)

Some couples choose to marry again as a surprise for their families. And, some families surprise their PARENTS with a vow renewal, while others just invite everyone to come to Vegas to witness the fun. If you come on a second honeymoon, though, your friends and family can watch online back home if you upgrade with live streaming coverage. We often do fun and memorable multiple-couple vow renewals as well, when great friends want to create a great Vegas memory and say “I Do” all over again.

Our best wishes go out to Linda and Frank for continued happiness. We will long remember your special day with us!

It’s International Talk (or Get Married) Like a Pirate Day! Pirate Weddings at Viva Las Vegas!

Pirate Wedding Vegas
How else to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day? Get married by a drunken pirate!

Ahoy, mateys! In case you haven’t heard, on September 19th of each year, the world celebrates International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Of course, that means we may be seeing a few Pirate Themed Weddings here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! Where else can you be married by a drunken pirate in your fancy pirate duds, amidst ocean fog, exhilarating pirate-themed music, surrounded by treasure chests and the corpses of long-dead seafarers? …right. And, the happy couples will naturally be including a few “arrgghs” in their wedding vows at the doubloon-laden altar.

The Pirate Themed Wedding package includes flowers, photography, peg-legged wedding coordinator to run you through your paces (just kidding), and even round-trip limo transportation from your Strip or Downtown hotel. It’s likely you’ll want to add live streaming internet coverage of your ceremony, too…or just save the DVD to show family and friends when you get back home. And, of course, we’re happy to perform this Pirate Themed Wedding any day of the year, not just on Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Visit our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com and scroll down under “Themed Weddings” to see details on this and any of our other wacky, creative weddings. We can customize any element of your wedding to make it distinctively YOURS. And, these fun weddings are also perfect for wedding vow renewals. Often couples tell us it’s the wedding they always dreamed of, but they were too afraid to have the first time ’round.

Another Las Vegas helicopter wedding option allows you to view the depths of the Grand Canyon by helicopter, minutes from Vegas, as part of your wedding day. Before the trip, you’ll be married in a gorgeous Traditional, Themed or Elvis ceremony at our chapel. We’ll work with you to make all the details perfect.
