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!

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.”
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! 🙂
