At the start of a New Year, we like to take a peek to see how we are doing from the perspective of our wedded guests. It helps us see what we are doing right, and what we might still improve on. Heck, some of these reviews are so amazingly detailed that we can tell things like who among our staff might just have been having a bad day. But, we felt really honored to see our 4.5-star review on Yelp! And we were especially pleased to see mostly five-star ratings and happy, happy couples.
Because you describe your experience in a way that we can’t, we’ll share an honestly wonderful review from Yelp. If you are planning a wedding in Las Vegas in the coming New Year, please check the site for descriptions from many other wedding couples. We think reviews are really the best way to help you know for sure that Viva Las Vegas Chapel is the perfect place for your unique and very special Vegas wedding.
Ok, since I grew up in Las Vegas, the last thing I wanted was a typical Las Vegas Wedding, however, with my family unable to travel very far and since we were on a tight budget already with our unique wedding, we really didn’t have much of an option.
With that said, my Husband and I are SUPER happy we went with this chapel! We had an Addams Family themed wedding on Halloween this year, and it was EPIC thanks to this chapel! I think one of the things that makes this chapel awesome, is that they are all about “the show.” Everyone is extremely friendly (not pushy or sales-y), and they are open and willing to customize your package. We were told from the beginning that they could do any kind of theme our little hearts desired (except nudity, lol).
Naturally, we went with the Gothic package complete with fog, lighting effects, and the whole nine yards! The best part of the ceremony was our officiant: the Grimm Reaper. As the Bride, I did not mind one bit when he stole the show, lol! He really made the ceremony extra special! We really weren’t expecting much, but holy cow, did he deliver!
Everything about this chapel is amazing! It is also the only chapel that allows your guests to take pictures during the ceremony and they even have an option for you to bring your own photographer if you like, (you do have to pay a fee, but it is very reasonable). In case you don’t think this detail is very important, consider this: My Mother got married at another chapel downtown where they did not allow any outside photography of any kind, only theirs. Which seemed OK at first, but not when they fired the photographer before he uploaded the pictures of my Mother’s wedding! So there you have it, she paid all that money and to this day she has never seen pictures of the ceremony. ANYWAYS, my point is that for this chapel to allow outside photography is a big deal….pretty much no other chapel in Vegas offers that (we checked).
Another perk is that you can have the ceremony streamed live and archived for 90 days. Pretty awesome considering we had a lot of family and friends who could not make it out…so it was extra special for them to still be able to see it. It is also pretty neat that we can share the video on the web with everyone!
I will say that we never get tired of hearing “that was the best wedding we’ve ever been to!” — even our wedding photographer said the same, and imagine how many weddings she sees per year! I’d say Mission Accomplished!
We really want to send a big THANK YOU to the staff of Viva Las Vegas for making our wedding the most epic night of our lives!
Thanks, Laura, and thank you to all the couples who took the time to share your experience with others. We’ll see you again for your wedding vow renewals one day! Happy New Year!
