It’s been a crazy week of fun and touching weddings at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! With the annual Star Trek convention in town, Intergalactic-style weddings were very much on the roster here, from the reserved in-costume Original Series style, to more “out there” weddings—featuring couples and their guests decked out as every imaginable character on Earth–or elsewhere!

Joseph and Erin from Maryland attended the Star Trek Convention at the Rio Hotel on their wedding day, topping the afternoon off with a VLV ceremony filled with theatrical smoke and lights and the arrival of a starship captain beaming in to perform the vows. The couple had attended other Star Trek Conventions in past years, but this was their first visit to the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention. We were delighted that their trip could culminate in a very special wedding that coordinated beautifully with the “theme” of their wedding trip!

Gilles and Nicholas from Lyon, France, went for a really wacky space-themed wedding ceremony–in part. ( A different sort of “out there.”) Although everyone present wore wildly imaginative, non-space-themed costumes, and although the Romulans attacked during the ceremony (everyone careened across the chapel or fell to the floor), everyone was in tears when the couple read the vows they had written to each other. It was a uniquely fun and endearing wedding!

Intergalactic Wedding Packages include your choice of sci-fi ministers, photography and video, flowers, special effects and appropriate themed music, plus round trip limousine transportation from your Las Vegas Strip or Downtown hotel. You can also choose to customize your ceremony with any of our many options, including floral upgrades, adding a simple or even elaborate reception package, or adding the services of a hair and makeup artist. We even have an onsite costume rental shop at your disposal! Don’t forget, you can also add characters to your wedding production. It’s not unheard of to see Elvis performing Viva Las Vegas during an Intergalactic wedding–we’ve done that, too! There’s nothing quite like a captain in uniform groovin’ to The King…..

Our best wishes for happiness always go out to Erin and Joseph and to Gilles and Nicholas. Live long and prosper!

Viva Las Vegas’ Most Popular Weddings of 2013? One Word: Fusion!

Star Trek-like wedding package
Entering a New Year where no man and wife have gone before!
It’s been a wild ride in 2013 for Viva Las Vegas Weddings. At the end of the year, we think it’s a good idea to look back on all the traditional, themed and Elvis weddings we’ve hosted, just to see if we notice a change in wedding trends from one year to the next. Boy oh boy!

While the hottest weddings of the year always seem to include Elvis and our one-of-a-kind Pink Cadillac entrance, our space-themed weddings are growing astonishingly in popularity. What we’ve been booking in the last year, though, has not always been exactly the Intergalactic packages offered on our site!

Both Star Trek AND Star Wars fans have always been able to time-trip at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, with spectacularly-staged nuptials set in future centuries. But what’s trending lately are “fusion” packages, combining elements of sci-fi weddings with other themed wedding components. For example, in the case of newlyweds Candice and Jonathan, they chose to be married by Elvis onboard their starship/vessel. Check it out:

Of course, you can choose whatever options make sense in your bridal universe. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, ask to be married by any tribute artist, in any century or setting. Even couples having traditional weddings have added a touch of surprise in the past year. Recently, Superman descended from the ceiling to deliver the wedding rings, even though the rest of the ceremony was black-tie formal all the way.

As we bid a fond farewell to the hundreds of fabulous weddings we’ve done this year, we look forward to many more creative “fusion wedding” requests in 2014. Take us to where no bride and groom have gone before. Happy New Year, and best wishes for a bright future in 2014, everyone!
