Celebrating a Birthday at Viva Las Vegas Weddings–Chapel Co-Owner Jamie!

Rocky Horror Style Wedding Vegas

While we’re always celebrating the weddings and anniversaries of our Viva Las Vegas brides and grooms, this week chapel co-owner Jamie Richards will be celebrating a birthday! Just as in most other convivial workplaces, we make the a big fuss over staffer birthdays, filling the back office with yummy birthday cake and potluck dishes to chow down on between weddings. But birthdays at Viva Las Vegas Weddings often include after hours partying, too. (After all, we’re mostly former entertainers with showbiz in our blood!) One of Jamie’s recent birthdays featured a spoof of Dancing with the Stars with wedding staffers impersonating Bruno, Len and well-known dance pros.

You may recognize Jamie if he helped to coordinate your wedding or wedding vow renewal here at Viva Las Vegas. He could have been wedding photographer instead (this guy can do ANY job at the chapel to perfection). And, if you’re just now making wedding arrangements, Jamie could be the cheerful voice on the other end of the phone.

Vegas Rocky Horror Wedding

For those who’ve booked our Rocky’s Horror Themed Wedding Package, at Halloween or any other time of the year, you’ve likely seen Jamie doing double duty as Brad AND wedding photographer! Even Jamie gets to show off his goofy side at times when our themed wedding productions are on the lighter side.

Like many of our staff, Jamie comes from a background in entertainment. First, Jamie was a professional ice skater, then later a dancer and singer in Las Vegas productions. So..In honor of Jamie’s birthday, it just seems right to embarrass him a little by sharing an old ice skating audition video. (Gee, the Winter Olympics is coming up…Jamie would be great at arranging an Olympic-themed wedding for you—snow shoes down the aisle, anyone?) We hope you’ll be lucky enough to meet Jamie on your visit to our chapel.

Speaking of birthdays, we always like to mention that if your spouse has a special birthday coming up in the New Year, consider a surprise trip to Vegas with a surprise Elvis or themed wedding vow renewal. WE think that’s the most unforgettable way to celebrate anniversaries or birthdays in glitzy Vegas style!

So, if you’re marrying at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel in the near future, say “hello” to Jamie and, as we all here will be doing, wish him a very Happy Birthday!

Vegas Wedding Chapel Owner

Jamie, you haven’t changed one bit. 🙂

Halloween Wedding Memories from Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Addams Family Las Vegas Wedding
When love is in bloom…

Happy Halloween! We’re celebrating our favorite wedding day with memories from nearly 20 years of Gothic, Graveyard, Zombie, Elvira and Thriller Halloween Wedding Packages at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! We’ve even done custom Halloween themed weddings, like this one, featuring the Addams Family with Gomez as minister and Thing delivering the rings! We’re always up for a horror movie themed wedding challenge here at Viva Las Vegas Chapels.

Addams Family Values
Pass the cigars, Gomez

We’ve had Flying (Cirque du Soleil-style) vampires, wicked witches, Brides of Frankenstein and even the Devil as monsters of ceremonies, tying the knot for wedding couples who dare! Most brides and grooms come in costumes, and generally the guests do, too. From noon to midnight, the chapel is a parade of eye-popping costumes every Halloween!

Wizard of Oz wedding

Grim Reaper Gothic Wedding
The Grim Reaper–the most grim of all wedding ministers!

The Viva Las Vegas Chapel is dressed up as a cemetery each Halloween, with theatrical fog and lights, candlelight, gloomy organ music, cobwebs, tombstones, and your officiant most often emerges from a coffin…Dracula? Grim Reaper? Elvira? We’ve featured them all!

We’ll also be doing our full-on Rocky’s Horror Themed Wedding for Halloween, complete with live musical numbers and your guests joining in for the Time Warp after the vow exchange! (Available year ’round, of course!)

Our Michael Jackson Thriller Wedding Package is just right for Halloween. We’re hoping for a zombie dance number by wedding guests of couples getting hitched with our incredible MJ impersonator. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we’re always surprised by what our couples and their friends and families bring to the ceremony.

Viva Las Vegas’s Gothic Wedding Package– with Elvira, Mistress of the Dark!

Elvira Themed Wedding Vegas
Order up a Gothic Wedding Package and ask for Elvira as your minister! Perfect for Halloween, or any other scary wedding date! (They’re all kinda scary…in a good way!)

Yes. Viva friends, October is here, the month of Halloween Weddings AND, this year, Friday the 13th weddings! It’s not too late to book your wedding date for October, although time slots for October 31st are growing scary-scarce! Book soon! Or, not to worry, we do “Halloween” all year long at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Generally our Gothic Themed Wedding includes either the Grim Reaper or Dracula emerging from a coffin to perform your marriage rites. But, by special request, you can also have Elvira Mistress of the Dark as your macabre minister! (If you remember the ’80s, this one’s for you!) Zombie fans, there’s always Zombie Elvis to perform your vows and serenade you. You can choose your spooky minister character at the time of your booking.

Also, feel free to add frightful upgrades, including flying Cirque du Soleil-style vampires, circling high above the altar during your ceremony. The chapel will be filled with cemetery fog, tombstones, eerie candlelight and haunting music. (Except Elvira has you boogie down the aisle after your ceremony to strains of “The Monster Mash!”) Select charming black roses for your bouquet, or go traditional blood red with black ribbon….Or? We can customize your frightful flowers in our onsite florist shop.

Feeling sorry that you’re ALREADY married and can’t tie the knot in a graveyard? No problem! You can renew your vows with us, and bring along all of your friends in costume to help celebrate your many happy years of marriage!

Gothic Weddings in Las Vegas–Friday October 13th AND Halloween Night–GOING FAST!

Halloween Weddings Vegas
Viva Las Vegas Weddings goes all out for Halloween—indoor chapels, outdoor chapels, even the parking lot is decorated in ghoulish style!

Planning an October Wedding in Las Vegas? If you’re up for a themed wedding featuring Dracula, Zombie Elvis, the Grim Reaper, Dr. Frank-N-Furter or Elvira Mistress of the Dark as minister, don’t be scared to book early. In fact, Gothic Wedding packages in our cemetery-decked Main Chapel are already almost all booked up for Halloween! (And, only at Viva Las Vegas Weddings can you add flying vampires to soar above the chapel during your wedding. Really. Just ask us.)

If you had your heart set on Halloween night wedding in Vegas, fear not! We can also offer you our candlelit and very spooky Little Chapel as an alternate venue. Footsteps from our Main Chapel, the Little Chapel is dressed in deep burgundy and filled with cobwebs and haunting decor. An elegantly eerie and intimate setting for weddings with 35 guests or less.

If you have lots of guests and still prefer a gorgeous Main Chapel wedding, though– with all the fog and special lighting effects, and a minister stepping out of a coffin–there are still wedding time slots available on the nearly-equally-haunting Friday, October 13th! Call now to reserve your time for the frightful wedding or wedding vow renewal package of your choice—702-384-0771

Elvira Wedding Vegas
Elvira does the honor by request in our Little Chapel in this scary still frame from a live video–or should we say “dead” ???

Our Little Chapel, seen above and below, is mainly open only for Halloween and Valentine’s Day weddings–the two most popular wedding dates of the year. The rest of the year, it’s a cozy reception spot for couples who wish to add a small reception to any Viva Las Vegas Wedding package. (Yes, we do receptions, from simple to lavish in our four reception halls!)

Little Chapel Vegas Weddings
Our Little Chapel transforms into a cobwebby crypt for Halloween night only!

October weather is generally stunning in Vegas, and perfect for outdoor weddings in our Garden or Gazebo Chapels. On Halloween, they’re dressed to the nines in spooktacular glory with jack o’lanterns, giant spiders, cobwebs…and….other stuff…. To see all of the options for your October themed wedding, and to view our Halloween specials, go to http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/las-vegas-wedding-packages/holidays-special-events/halloween Don’t wait, or…you might waste away…like the bride below…

And just in case you’ve forgotten to pack your black veil for your Gothic Halloween wedding….

The Darker Side of Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel: The Gothic Wedding Package!

Viva Las Vegas Dracula Weddings
Count your blessings as you say your vows with Dracula and become forever one! (RIP Bill Sewers, aka “Drac”–you are missed in the Gothic mists…)

May the Fourth Weddings in Vegas are almost upon us, and our “Wars” character impersonator ministers will be marrying and renewing vows for fans of the “Dark Side” who want to tie the intergalactic knot on that iconic date. But we also do “darker-side” weddings all year long. Our Intergalactic Themed Weddings are a hit with couples in every season, and the same is true for our VERY popular Gothic Themed Wedding. The package includes flowers (black, of course), haunting music and fog in a tombstone-bedecked cemetery, photography and video, plus round-trip limousine transportation. Dracula, the Grim Reaper, Elvira or Zombie Elvis marry you in a chilling ceremony that’s to die for! The sinister minister of your choice will step out of a coffin to perform your wedding ceremony by eerie candlelight. Add online streaming for those who can’t come to the graveyard in person…

Gothic Wedding Vegas
Gothic Weddings feature a Grim Reaper minister, but you can substitute Dracula, Zombie Elvis, Elvira, or…? to marry you in Goth style!

Don’t forget that costumes are practically de-rigueur for these dark-sided affairs…or at least consider a black bridal gown and veil. If you want to go full-on theatrical, fans of Rocky Horror might check out our “Rocky’s Horror” Themed Wedding, complete with live (mostly) musical production numbers. We’ll customize any of our packages to suit your particular tastes, too. To see all of our themed wedding packages, dark or otherwise, visit us at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Halloween is just six months away, and many folks who have a bit of the “Goth” in them plan a wedding for that night. Book early! It’s our busiest and darkest wedding night of the year! To view all of our Halloween 2017 Specials, visit: http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/las-vegas-wedding-packages/holidays-special-events/halloween
Be forewarned Goth grooms–grab your ghoul, and plan your dark and deeply meaningful wedding night…before it’s too late! We’ve attached a video sample of one of our frightful Halloween-style weddings. Hope to see YOU on the darkest night of the year. Or, whenever!

Dia de los Muertos Weddings at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel

Elvis weddings in Spanish
Halloween and Dia de los Muertos weddings–even our Little Chapel is dressed up for both occasions!

After a thrilling, haunted Halloween weekend at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, today we celebrate Dia de los Muertos with continuing, frightfully-fun weddings! We’re happy to have an excuse to keep the decorations up an extra day or two.

Did you know our Elvis’s (also known as “Elvi” around here) all can perform your Elvis or Zombie Elvis wedding in Spanish? When you book your wedding, simply request a Spanish ceremony, either by Elvis or one of our “regular” ministers. In fact, almost any of our Themed weddings can be performed in Spanish. Just let us know. With notice, we are able to provide ministers for French or German ceremonies as well. Other languages? We’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.

Here comes the Bride of Frankenstein! Monstrously fun weddings continue into November for Dia de los Muertos!
Here comes the Bride of Frankenstein! Monstrously fun weddings continue into November for Dia de los Muertos!

While the rest of the year we have a more traditional decor in our several indoor and outdoor chapels, we’ll still bring out the tombstones, fog, and cemetery gates for a Gothic or Graveyard Wedding with the Grim Reaper or Dracula any time of year! Yep, even Valentine’s Day… Viva Las Vegas!
