~ To Hide the Bride or Knot?

Come to Graceland...

The tradition of the Groom not seeing his lovely Bride until she walks down the aisle can be so exciting. We offer the Look of Love here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. We call it, “First Look”. First Look packages can range from mini First Looks to Deluxe First Looks. We offer hiding the Bride or Groom from each other guaranteeing that he will not have his breath taken away until the very moment that you walk down that aisle. In my short time here at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, I have had many Grooms request First looks. Some Grooms are just traditional, and others just know how special a moment it really is for their Bride. So you are like the gift that he anticipates seeing, all wrapped up and ready to say “I Do.” Why you have managed to make him feel like the luckiest man in the world by hiding out. My opinion of the question fore-mentioned is Yes~ I say” Hide the Bride”and make it special~really special…

"I'd love to sing for you Elvis"

We recently had a Rockabilly Elvis Wedding and our Beautiful Bride made her First Look a Deluxe. A day event with a glam team to do her hair and makeup along with her Bridal Party. A light lunch was served, and the ladies were fussed over by the glam team. Check out my Rockabilly Elvis Wedding Blog and see for yourselves. There is a testimonial from one of the ladies in the Bridal Party as well.

This is all done in our Elvis and Priscilla Bridal Suite. The Suite is adorable, it’s made out to look like the gates at the healm of Graceland and Elvis’ Recording studio. The photos are attached. You will see Y.T.  in the photos. Now Elvis really wasn’t plugging his ears because of my singing….I’m just chatty ( as if you couldn’t tell ). I highly recommend a First Look package for you on your special day. Talk to a reservationist today for details. Let us help you make it memorable.

Yours Truly,


Rockabilly Elvis Las Vegas Wedding

Starring, the Hillbilly Cat.  Better known as, Elvis Presley! When Elvis first came onto the scene, he was called ” The Hillbilly Cat.” His band had a strong back beat and they were into that cool rockabilly sound. Ian & Kristine are from the O.C. and they chose Rockabilly Elvis for their big wedding day. They made their day more of an event. I picked the girls up in a beautiful white stretch limousine at the Golden Nugget on Freemont Street and we were off. The gals were escorted to our awesome Elvis and Priscilla Suite for hair and makeup.

The Suite is amazing with a Pink Cadillac coming out of the wall and the gates of Graceland surounding you. There is a large lit up mirror and artist chairs for that special movie set feeling too. The gals enjoyed a light lunch and were ready to get glammed up. Our artistry team then began their beautiful work of hair and makeup for all of the girls in the wedding party. These gals were transformed into rockabilly babes! You can see that for yourselves in the photo below. Kristine our beautiful Bride was a sight indeed! She was so happy and she really felt like her wedding was turned into a great day event which made it that more special. It’s always so rewarding to hear that from a Bride. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings we really go all out for your requests.

Rockabilly Babes...

The guys rocked it too, in colorful bowling type shirts. They looked great. Oh, and when Elvis walked the Bride down the aisle….the guests wailed. Well it’s one for the money, two for the show! It really was a show with our Rockabilly Elvis wedding. Ian and Kristine you were a big hit! Best wishes to you both on behalf of the staff at Viva Las Vegas Weddings.”Viva Vegas” is all I can say. Everyone had so much fun including me! If you are looking to get married or thinking about renewing your wedding vows…Give us a holler here at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel so that we can put together your eventful day. Oh, and I highly recommend our Glam-Team, ladies~ you will love their work and the special bondng time you’ll have with your wedding party before you strut down that aisle on Elvis’ arm. Also, as tradition still stands for many Brides..get dressed and dolled up at the Chapel before your wedding, so that when the Groom first sees you on your wedding day, it is when you are walking down the aisle and you are simply taking his breath away.

Just a couple of cuties...
