Plus…we do Elvis Weddings! (And we’ve seen our share of Elvis appearances when “Darth Vader” is the minister, too. Fusion weddings are “a thing” now!)

Your Free Viva Las Vegas Wedding Website!

Intergalactic Space Themed Wedding
Mike and Nicole tied the knot recently in an Intergalactic Themed Wedding!…Mmmmm…This gives us an idea for a Sherlock Holmes themed wedding…

Did you know that your Viva Las Vegas Wedding includes a free wedding website that doubles as an invitation? It’s your very own page where you can post photos and write a brief blog about how you met and how the proposal played out. You can also list the reasons why you chose to get married in Vegas. We love reading the stories of couples meeting and getting engaged! Couples often include whatever sweet and romantic tidbits they want to share with family and friends. Your personal wedding web page is also the site where your wedding can be viewed live and streaming via the Internet, should you wish. You can even choose to archive the video. That way, it can be watched by anyone, even weeks later.

Star Trek like wedding in Vegas
Mike reads his vows to Nicole as uniformed attendants stand by.

Mike and Nicole used their wedding webpage to alert family and friends, letting them know that Starfleet uniforms were in order for the ceremony. They had a fabulous time, with guests bringing along a pack of tribbles to toss at the couple as they exited the chapel–instead of rice! The two took advantage of every option to customize their ceremony, including life-sized cutouts of Next Gen crew as part of the backdrop and ordering up a romantic “First Dance” at the end of their ceremony. The guests were all dancing in the aisles, too, by the end.

Your wedding website is the way to get the word out! Natalie and Gertjan announced their wedding plans on a international scale. Couples from all over the globe marry at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. Their stories and the ability to live stream their ceremonies is an even more important feature for world-traveling newlyweds! We’ll share Natalie and Gertjan’s sweet story from their webpage below:

Wedding “guests” can watch your wedding live, even back in Europe!

How We Met

On the 26th of July 2014 we were on a international bike event in Amsterdam. After a few days cruising across the Netherlands we had a big party with a lot of other cruisers from around the world. On that evening I showed my first interest in Nathalie by giving here a little shoulder massage. But after about 10 minutes I didn’t know what to do next so I walked away. Nathalie was thinking and what next??? About 30 minutes later we took a picture together and that was all. We became friends on Facebook and started to like everything from each other. 2 months later we were again on a international bike event in Paris. That was on Friday the 19nt of September. Nathalie was all ready for a day in Paris and I arrived on the 19nt of September. On that day the cruisers from Paris organized a night-cruise across Paris. The plan was to see all the cruisers by the Bar le Komptoir. When we saw each other all the people and stuff around us disappeared. We had just the look on each other. We said hello and Nathalie was feeling ok there is more. She did the step and spoke all time with me and cruised next to me. On our way to the Sacre Cour we left us out the eyes. There Nathalie was searching another Cruiser she travelled with, cause her bottle holder was broken. Thijs another cruiser said to me I think there is someone looking for you. I searched Nathalie and when I found her I wanted to visit the church with her. I said to her that I heard that she was searching me {in fact she wasn’t} she answered ok when the people it say it must be true. I hugged her and gave her our first right kiss in front of the Church. We cruised all night together and it was all just magic. Saturday evening we talked about how it should go on with us. We decided to try it a German Dutch relationship on the weekend. It worked well. After 7 months of travelling every weekend I moved to Germany. Now short to say I found my perfect little Family with Billy our cat.

The Proposal

Gertjan and I were talking all time before about getting married. About planning our own Family and the other pro things a wedding brings to us. It was new years eve and we were at home from our Friends Sandra and Dennis and we decided to try out and go to a Chinese restaurant in February. What I didn’t know was the fact that Gertjan planned to ask me that Evening if I want to be his wife. So everybody around me was knowing. Even the cutest thing was he also asked my Dad for my Hand (I sayed to Gertjan that this MUST be done and he did it). So the date came it was the 13th of February, he was before working. And when he came home I was thinking ok was he having a bad day at work? We wanted to met our Friends around 6 o’clock this evening. And even at 4 o’clock he asked me if we should clean up our aquarium I was thinking no in 2 hours we must be there and I must make me still ready. What I didn’t know was he was so nervous and must do something. We met our friends and we started to eat and i was talking all time with Sandra and Gertjan was getting more nervous. I wanted to take Sandra’s little baby Girl Anna on my Arms but she said no. That was strange cause I normally can do it every time. Then Gertjan came to me, down on his knees. he wanted a kiss. I gave him one. Then everybody put out their phones…I was thinking ok what is going on here??? I think I should turn to Gertjan. I just saw his eyes and I started to cry cause I know what was coming. Than he asked me and I said of course Yes. He put the ring on my finger and was just hugging him all the time. On the rest of the evening I couldn’t believe this and of course my hunger was away.

Viva Las Vegas Wedding

After that he asked me we where thinking about how should we getting married. After a few days we found out that a normal wedding in a normal church not fits to us. And it was ever my dream to travel to the USA and going to make an Road trip. We needed something International. And it sounded perfect for us. Meeting in Amsterdam, starting the Relationship in Paris and getting married in Las Vegas.

Best wishes to these and all of our happily married couples who have honored us with pics and touching tales of their love. Keep ’em coming!

Plan Your Fall Las Vegas Wedding Outdoors at a Picturesque Location!

Wedding at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada
Choose the serene desert and stunning Red Rock Canyon as a backdrop for your wedding
Autumn is officially here, a time when the weather is typically breathtaking in Las Vegas. If it’s just the two of you, or if you have only a limo-full of guests, we think one of the most romantic weddings we offer at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel takes place just outside the city, and at sunset.

You’ll be whisked away from your hotel in one of our limousines, taken 20 miles west of Las Vegas into the gorgeous Red Rock Canyon. Your bouquet, minister, photographer and videographer will all be there to meet you. Your ceremony and your photo session will take place before some of the most stunning scenery in Southern Nevada.

The Beautiful Red Rock Wedding package also includes champagne glasses for toasting afterward, and the required National Park Service fee. You’ll need to book two weeks ahead to make all the arrangements to be married on this special site.

On your way back to Las Vegas in your stretch limo (if you do marry at sundown) you’ll enjoy an exciting panoramic view of the lights of Las Vegas just as they are coming on. Plus, you can have gourmet candlelit dining reservations waiting back at your hotel. Perfect!

Visit https://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/redrock_wedding.htm to check out this unique traditional wedding package. And feel free to call us with any questions. We’ll be happy to take care of every detail for you to make this your dream wedding in the glorious desert sunset! 702-384-0771

This historic sign was designed in 1959 by Betty Willis, a pioneer in commercial design. It’s now one of the few remnants of Old Vegas, but remains a symbol of Sin City. Combine your wedding trip to Vegas with a visit to the Neon Museum near downtown Las Vegas. Here you can see the original signs from the long-gone hotels and businesses that made Las Vegas great. Fascinating tours are offered daily.
