Only at Viva Las Vegas Weddings–Your Names in Lights on the Las Vegas Strip!

Wedding names in lights Vegas
BEST post-wedding Vegas photo-op EVER!

Here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, your names appear in lights above the Las Vegas Strip after your wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony! What a great photo op! Your names will flash then freeze for a few seconds so that we can snap your picture. After that, “Married” and the date of your vows will appear for another incredible shot. Or, on a special anniversary, as in the photo below, you’ll see the number of years of marriage you are celebrating together!

Anniversaries make the best excuses for a renewal of vows ceremony, with Elvis, a minister, or any of our wild and wacky character ministers.

When you book your wedding date and time with us, consider whether you want a daytime ceremony, or an evening ceremony. Daytime weddings are colorful and almost always sunny in Las Vegas. But if you’ve booked one of our themed or deluxe wedding packages, they include round-trip limousine service from your hotel. So, consider booking a time slot at dusk or after dark. That way, you’ll see why Las Vegas is known as the City of Lights! There’s nothing more memorable than a ride along Las Vegas Boulevard as the neon comes to life! And your names in lights will look GREAT!

Once outside after your ceremony and photo shoot– with your professional Viva Las Vegas photographer– your guests are welcome to take as many pictures as they wish. So, you can pose away under our marquee, flanked by our adobe mission bell tower and palm trees. You can’t beat THAT for a picturesque wedding portrait!

If you have questions or just want to look at all of our wedding venues (the Main Chapel, Garden or Gazebo Chapels, or our 50’s Doo Wop Diner Chapel), visit www.vivalasvegasweddings.com. There you can check out all of our fabulous traditional, themed and Elvis wedding packages, chat live with a wedding planner, or find our phone number, if you’d like to speak with us in person. Come star in your own Las Vegas Wedding at Viva Las Vegas Weddings!

Las Vegas Elvis Wedding Entrances—FIVE WAYS!

Diner Wedding with Elvis

On your wedding day in Vegas, especially if yours will be an Elvis wedding, you want Elvis to make a grand entrance. (And you, too, of course!) For most of our Elvis wedding packages, Elvis emerges through a door toward the back of the chapel and heads down the aisle to his “station” once your guests have been seated. But, at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we have a few other options to make that entrance even more spectacular!

1. Stroll down the aisle WITH Elvis as he sings “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Usually the groom is waiting up front for the bride, but you can always upgrade and add Marilyn or a showgirl to escort the groom down the aisle, too.

2. Have Elvis drive you right down the aisle of the chapel in a pink Cadillac convertible, complete with smoke and lighting effects! (That’s our Elvis Pink Caddy package, see at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com under Elvis weddings!)

3. Having a traditional wedding with a traditional minister, but want a touch of Elvis, as a surprise? We can hide Elvis behind the curtain at the altar. The curtain goes up when he begins to sing the Elvis song of your choice. It makes for a big finish to your wedding ceremony! You’ll have to ask us for this special add-on, but it’s an amazing way to make sure your wedding is unforgettably fun.

4. Bridesmaids? Elvis can escort the ladies down the aisle one by one as he sings. We’ve also seen groomsmen (all dressed as Elvis) escorting them, with the “real” Elvis escorting the bride. We’ll arrange whatever you dream up!

We rent Elvis costumes, too, if you're having guests dress up, too!

5. Choose an unexpected venue for your Elvis wedding. Elvis can marry you in our Outdoor Gazebo or Garden ceremonies. If you prefer a traditional minister for your “I Do’s,” Elvis can pop in for a surprise ending. Our Doo Wop 50’s Diner also has several affordable Elvis packages in a setting that none of your guests will be expecting.

Give us a call for information or to discuss your ideas for your customized Elvis wedding in Vegas. Thank ya very much! 702-384-0771

Perform at YOUR Viva Las Vegas Themed Wedding!

Want to sing at your own wedding….? We can make that happen!

For engaged couples who might like to sing, dance or who want to do a little number for their wedding day, Viva Las Vegas Weddings is the place! For those folks who are up for a sentimental serenade for their spouse-to-be, or, if you want to put together a dance routine for your Egyptian themed wedding, as the wedding party did below, we’re all for it! Have a look!

Of course, at the time you book your wedding, you’ll want to discuss your needs with one of our friendly wedding consultants, to make sure we have your music. We also need to discuss where your song or whatnot will go within the ceremony. If you need more than minimal assistance from us to pull it off, there may be a slight upcharge for arranging the music or extra time allotment. We’re happy to work it out perfectly.

Need costumes? Let us know! We have a costume rental shop and it’s likely we’ll have just the thing for your themed extravaganza.

Most brides and grooms opt just to be entertained by Elvis, Tom Jones, Alice Cooper, MJ, or any of our wide array of madcap characters that accompany our themed wedding packages. If you don’t see what you want, please just ask. We’re always up for any creative challenges you can dish out. Viva Las Vegas! Call us for more info at: 702-384-0771

Elvis wedding vow renewal
Paul and Karen renew their wedding vows after 35 years, with Elvis!

Only in Vegas can you pick a celebrity “minister” when you decide to get married at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! We’ve got just about any impersonator/tribute artist you can name, with Elvis being the most popular, of course. This week Paul and Karen celebrated 35 years of marriage by renewing their wedding vows in Las Vegas with Elvis, the King of Rock ‘n Roll. THAT should be on EVERYONE’s bucket list! You can do up your vow renewal with a Pink Cadillac entrance with Elvis and all the bells and whistles, order up an Elvis Blue Hawaii all-inclusive tropical package, or you can choose a simple ceremony with Elvis singing your favorite song and performing the wedding or vow renewal.

Marilyn Monroe wedding
Janet and Christopher got married by “Marilyn” in a sweet and simple ceremony, just the two of them!

Janet and Christopher started off married life in February with an intimate and casual ceremony performed by everyone’s favorite blonde bombshell, or the next best thing! You can choose to add a sexy song— a rendition of “I Want to be Loved by You,” a Pink Cadillac entrance, or even Elvis PLUS “Marilyn.” We’ll customize whatever elements will make the perfect Las Vegas icon wedding for you! Choose our Main Chapel, the Doo Wop Diner, or the Outdoor Garden or Gazebo venues for your unique wedding. All of our chapels feature the ability to stream your ceremony live online for folks who can’t come to Vegas to witness it in person.

For more information on these and all of our Elvis, themed and traditional weddings, call us at 702-384-0771 or visit www.vivalasvegasweddings.com , where you can also chat online with a friendly staff member…or Elvis…if he’s not busy…

Forge the Bonds of Holy Matrimony in Vegas with James Bond 007 as Your Minister!

007 Wedding in Vegas
Our one-of-a-kind James Bond wedding, if you’re fond of “the spy who loved me,” here’s the guy to “Bond” you in holy matrimony to your “forever” love interest.

If you want a formal wedding in Las Vegas, traditional, but not EXACTLY, you can’t go wrong with our James Bond 007 wedding ceremony! It’s sexy and sophisticated, perfect for a tuxedo-and-sexy-gown wedding, but it has a theatrical edge and uniqueness that you will find no where else on the planet!

After “M” gives instructions via the Internet, Bond makes a spectacular sports car entrance right down the chapel aisle flanked by two Bond Girls and enveloped in fog. During the ceremony, one Bond Girl sings live (“Diamonds are Forever”) during the ring exchange, just before the candle lighting portion of the ceremony. You’ll have Bond themed music throughout, flowers, photography, and round trip limo transportation from your Las Vegas hotel, all included in the spectacular package.

St. Patrick’s Day: A Wee Leprechaun Wedding in Vegas


Because we can’t say it quite like you do, here’s a touching letter sent to us by newlyweds Kevin and Shanen Pearson of California:

“On behalf of Shanen and I, we wanted to take the time to thank you and your entire staff for making our wedding day one of the most memorable moments of our lives.

When we first hatched the idea of getting married on St. Patrick’s Day, we both knew it was the perfect day for us to make it happen. Then, in a joking sort of way, I said ‘Let’s get married by a leprechaun.’ Together, our eyes got wide with excitement and I said ‘Let’s make this happen!’

Having called several chapels, I can say that not only was yours the only one to say it could be done, but there was genuine excitement from your voice, and that of your staff. When our wedding day came, I could not have been prepared for the experience you offered.

From being the first Leprechaun wedding in your chapel’s history (maybe even a Vegas first?) to the fact that your entire staff was genuinely giddy with excitement over the uniqueness of this wedding, you helped make our wedding beyond memorable. We were seeking a moment in time that captured us – fun, different, quirky, yet filled with love. Your team helped make it all of that and more.

From the “unexpected surprises” your team said they had in store to the classy feel of the entire day, we cannot begin to express our appreciation and gratitude for your taking our vision and making it a reality.

So, again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you to you and your staff for making our day so special, so memorable and, most of all, so representative of us.


Kevin and Shanen Pearson
(We’d like to make your wedding day as happy as the Pearson’s. If you have a special wish, a favorite movie or television show, let’s see if together we can create your very own fun, different, and quirky day filled with love. Wizard of Oz wedding, anyone?)
