On their tenth visit to fabulous Las Vegas, Kelly and Ron of New Hampshire pulled out all the stops and exchanged wedding vows with Elvis! Their 25 enthusiastic guests flew in from several states for this memorably fun occasion, plus an audience of family and friends were watching the live stream back home. Everyone went wild as the couple burst into the chapel in a pink Cadillac driven right down the aisle by The King himself. THAT’S how you get married in Vegas!
Our chapel staff members LOVED seeing Kelly and Ron’s personal story of how they’d decided on a Vegas wedding, posted on their Viva Las Vegas Weddings wedding website page. Once we read it, we were thrilled to be able to share their greatest Vegas adventure yet–The Elvis Pink Caddy Wedding! (By the way, a customizable Viva wedding website page is included in all of our wedding packages, and it’s where couples can post photos, the story of their romance and proposal, plus it doubles as an online invitation and the place the wedding video can be archived for all to see.) Ron and Kelly’s story was especially delightful–it was almost like an ad for all the fantastic things you can do in Las Vegas! Below, we’ve decided to share their story, and, for awhile anyway, the archived video of their absolutely amazing wedding ceremony with Elvis!
Here’s the link to watch all the fun:
And below, in Ron and Kelly’s own words, how they decided to get married by Elvis in Las Vegas:
“You may ask why Vegas? April of 2010, our friends Ed and Sharron invited us to join them for a week at their time share. Neither of us had ever been to Vegas and we gladly accepted. We didn’t know what to expect. It was gaudy, loud, crowded, can be expensive, and just walking down the street can be an adventure. At the time, there were a lot of “card snappers” to contend with (look it up). Guess what? We loved it!!
Since then, we have been back 8 times. Not that gambling can’t be fun (when you win) and there are excellent high end bars and restaurants, but we discovered there is a lot more to do than gamble on the strip. Over the years, we visited the Neon Museum (a well-kept “junk yard” of all the old Neon Signs from early Vegas), The Mob Museum, Zip Lining in Boot Leg Canyon (and Fremont Street), Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon, Driving a Jeep through some amazing terrain, Xscream ride on top of the Stratosphere (and I jumped off), Container Park, The Atomic Testing Museum, The High Roller, numerous shows, Ditch Friday (pool party with Robin Thicke), Madame Tussauds and the creme da la crème, a helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon where we landed on a ledge and got out to have lunch.
When we decided to get married (it had been suggested on previous trips), Vegas was the obvious choice, as was being married by Elvis at Viva Las Vegas.”
Wishing Kelly and Ron a lifetime of adventure and happiness ahead! Keep returning to Las Vegas to make more memories, and we hope one day we’ll meet again for a renewal of vows ceremony… We loved sharing your special day. And enjoy every minute of your honeymoon stay in Fabulous Las Vegas!
