Saturday Night Disco Themed Wedding in Las Vegas!

Disco wedding Vegas
Boogie down the aisle with your Disco-themed wedding or vow renewal ceremony!

For couples who share a fondness for all things disco and 1970s–or even if you just love John Travolta, here’s a unique Las Vegas wedding package that has all the right moves! Our Disco Wedding Package has smoke and theatrical lighting effects, disco sounds, and a white-suited minister with a bit of New York City ’70s swag.

Bring your retro wedding duds, or rent costumes at our onsite costume shop. And, tell your guests to do the same. After all, they’ll be wanting to get up and dance in the aisles right along with you after the vows are said. Some brides and grooms, though, choose to go traditional instead. It’s perfectly fine to just let the minister and the atmosphere create the mood. Be sure to opt for online streaming coverage so friends and family who can’t come to Vegas can still share your disco flashback wedding or wedding vow renewal–live!

Rene and Mayleen’s AWESOME VEGAS WEDDING!

Elvis Wedding Chapel
Mayleen and Rene clearly love to travel, and we’re thrilled they chose a Vegas Elvis wedding as part of their adventure of a lifetime!

We love ALL our fabulous couples at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! In fact, we go home every night with fun and sentimental stories to tell our families about the many Elvis, Themed and Traditional weddings we were able to be a part of that day. But this week, Rene and Mayleen of San Francisco blew us away–with their happy energy and thoughtfulness–in an Elvis Pink Cadillac ceremony we will long remember!

The pair are traveling across eleven states as part of their Las Vegas wedding adventure. For their ceremony, we were honored and delighted they chose Elvis as minister at our very own Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! (Rene told us he’s watched quite a few of our themed weddings live on Earthcam ahead of time!) Mayleen and Rene really pulled out all the stops by upgrading their wedding with showgirls and Elvis singing “Live in Concert” four iconic songs during their exchange of vows. For the big finish, this lovely couple and their guests danced along a conga line as Elvis performed a lively rendition of–what else?–“Viva Las Vegas!” The bride and groom archived their live-streamed wedding online, so for the next 90 days we can also share that with you! Check out all the fun by clicking the link below:

Rene and Mayleen also shared their love story on their free wedding invitation website, included with all our Viva Las Vegas Weddings bookings. Read their story here!

Welcome to our wedding page 🙂

How We Met

Mayleen was on Alamak Chat sometime December 2002 when she met Ren. Alamak Chat was a free chat site visited by millions of people until its popularity waned. It’s a chat site for good girls looking for goofy & weird-looking men. Mayleen fell in love with Ren’s childish ways, sense of humor, and how he loves & takes care of his two adorable cats. Everytime Ren’s in the chatroom, he did nothing but flood the room with the dumbest & most immature posts (e.g. “Hey you, you stink!” There were other posts too rude to mention). Ren fell in love with Mayleen’s beautiful personality. She’s intelligent. She has a kind, caring & generous heart. Someone’s momma always said: “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know who you’re gonna end up marrying & spending your life with.”

The Proposal

On January 30, 2017, Ren was eating sashimi when he playfully molded a thin strip of salmon into an engagement ring. Ren showed it to Mayleen & quipped: “We’ve known each other for 15 happy years. Time flies fast. Will you marry me, honey?” And she said Yes….HOORAY!!!!!!

A Las Vegas Wedding

We love Las Vegas. So many things to do and see. The fun & happiness never run out in Vegas. We want a fun & non-traditional wedding, so we decided to have the King of Rock & Roll to marry us. The King will be accompanied by two beautiful Showgirls, and driving his fabulous Pink Cadillac for a complete Las Vegas experience!

Our heartfelt best wishes go out to Rene and Mayleen, and we hope we’ll see you again one day for an anniversary wedding vow renewal. You two absolutely made our day! 🙂

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!

For more information on our wedding vow renewals, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com or call at 702-384-0771.

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.

How about GETTING married IN the helicopter over the lights of Vegas? We have wedding packages that offer either choice. Packages include many fun frills like a champagne toast, limousine transportation to the heliport, flowers, photography, even wedding cake to-go.

Las Vegas Helicopter Weddings
Spectacular views of the Strip by night…or…The Grand Canyon!

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. Then you’ll be swept away by limo to the heliport. Our helicopter wedding packages can include just the two of you, or you can invite a small number of guests.

Don’t forget, if you’ve already been married awhile, renewing your wedding vows on a special anniversary, and especially in such a spectacularly memorable way, is definitely the surprise of a lifetime for your spouse!

Not big on flying? Add Cirque du Soleil-style “flying” silk performers to your gorgeous indoor wedding ceremony, high above the altar in our Main Chapel. Choose our Viva du Cirque Wedding Package, or just add our breathtaking flying duo to any other Traditional, Elvis, or Themed Wedding package. Our performers can customize their flight and costumes. Flying vampires for a Gothic Wedding? Can do!

Holy Matrimony! A Joker and Harley Quinn Themed Wedding in Vegas!

Batman, Joker, Harley Wedding
Harley and Mr. J are not just joking around! Your Batman-themed character wedding in Las Vegas will be absolutely legit!

Batman Themed Wedding in Las Vegas? We’ve got you covered! Superman as your wedding minister? Wonder Woman? We’ve got those, too. While not all your comic book faves may be on our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com, you CAN make a special request to have your wedding or wedding vow renewal officiated by any comic, TV or movie character you can dream up! Recently, by special request, the Joker AND Harley Quinn from the Batman franchise made an appearance at a spectacular Viva Las Vegas Wedding. We’re always happy to find the right themed music and diabolical matrimonial plot. We’ll also add smoke effects, theatrical lighting and everything you need to feel like you’ve stepped into a wedding episode of your favorite series!

At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you can swap out any of the elements included in your selected wedding packages to customize the ceremony and make it perfect for you.

Themed Weddings all include limousine service, flowers, theatrical effects, photography and videography. Then just let us know what you want as an upgrade. Or, you also can just start with a simple, Traditional Wedding package, then substitute your minister with the character of your choice, as an upgraded feature. We will customize a package just for you, if you don’t need all the frills.
