An Australian Surprise at Viva Las Vegas

A romantic gesture is carried out by a Groom who is about to marry his Bride in Australia in May. The surprise felt like a scene out of a movie…but it truly was better. Our Groom had his lovely soon to be Bride dress like Marilyn Monroe. Then came the girls role in having the bride whisked away in a limousine wearing a blindfold and headphones. The Bride is brought along to the secret location~The Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel.

Our Bride is walked upstairs to the Elvis and Priscilla room where her Groom awaits her arrival for a surprise commitment ceremony. The Groom is dressed like Elvis and his friends are all dressed in flight suits that say “Top Gun.” The gals all join them, and the blindfold comes off.

Elvis is their minister and the great ceremony begins. All 24 of them traveled from down under to make this a weekend to remember and it truly was a bachelor and bachelorette’s weekend. The Groom had one more surprise and it was an outfit that had everyone in stitches. Just look for the flowers below.

Then the guys were off to go race car driving, the gals were off to lay out at a cabana by the pool and the strip clubs were to follow to finish off the ultimate bachelor and bachelorette’s weekend.

Cheers to our happy couple and their great friends!


King of Pop..King of Rock? ~Themed Weddings…

 As the sun begins to set here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel I see a silhouette of an icon arriving at our front door. Could it be? I haven’t looked at our wedding list for the evening so I am surprised to see Michael. “I’m here for a wedding at 8,” he whispers. I am transfixed for a moment, and then I snap out of it. It’s a Michael Jackson look a like.Wow! I proceed to greet our King of Pop and show him to the Chapel where he will perform for a wedding. The King of Pop Wedding was fantastic! Although I never did have the pleasure of seeing him live, I could only imagine how amazing he must have been after seeing this wedding. If your preferred King is Poppin’ and Michael Jackson is your pick, give us a call to make your wedding arrangements. We’ll aim to make it ” Off The Wall”  just for you.

          Now, if your King is Elvis and your heart starts racing just at his mention??? Well, then I say… we have the best Elvis’ I have ever seen. They look great and they are vocally sound. Who doesn’t love Elvis? I’m always crying in the Chapel. Pun intended. We recently brought on a world travelled Elvis to perform when we are triple booked. I decided I’d take a snapshot of him to feature in this blog, when one of our other Elvis’ jumped in.Thaaaats Brian, he’s our Chapel Manager and a part time Elvis extraordinairre as well.  

          Sometimes I feel as if I am on the hit television show Glee…everyone breaks out into song whether it’s in the Chapel or not. We get so goofy when we are behind the wedding scene. It really is alot of fun working here! Just a few weeks ago, we had a Bride ask if Elvis could sing “Tainted Love”. She meant to say “Love Me Tender.” So our newest Elvis over heard her, and decided to wait a minute for her to sit in the lobby and get comfortable…and then he casually walked past her singing “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell. It was such an 80’s-50’s moment. She looked a bit perplexed at first, and then we all bursted into laughter together.

          Are you ready to say “I do” for the first time or second or? Or do you want to renew your wedding vows and re-dedicate yourselves to each other? Or are you ready to have that commitment ceremony to make that promise? Please know, that we here at The Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel are commited to you. To assist you in your dream day. Give us a call at 702-384-0771 to make it happen. All together now…Dream a little Dream of Me….

Did you choose Rock or Pop?????

Until next week,
