Besides celebrating the weddings and anniversaries of our Viva Las Vegas brides and grooms this week, chapel co-owner Jamie Richards will be celebrating a birthday! Like any other workplace on the planet, we make the most of birthdays, stuffing our faces with luscious birthday cake and potluck eats between weddings. But unlike most workplaces on the planet, birthdays at Viva (continuing the celebration after wedding hours) usually include the most fantastic creative entertainment. For one of Jamie’s recent birthdays, the staff put on a full-length spoof of Dancing with the Stars. No kidding. We’re not sure how we’ll ever top that one….
You may recognize Jamie from your wedding experience with us at Viva Las Vegas. He may have been the friendly and gracious guy coordinating your wedding. He may have pinned on your boutonniere. It’s even possible he was your wedding photographer (this guy can do ANY job at the chapel to perfection). And, if you’re just now making wedding arrangements, Jamie could be the cheerful voice on the other end of the phone.
Like many of our staff, Jamie comes from a background in entertainment. First, Jamie was a professional ice skater, then later a dancer and singer in Las Vegas productions. So..In honor of Jamie’s birthday, it just seems right to embarrass him a little by sharing an old ice skating audition video. (Gee, the Winter Olympics is coming up…Jamie would be great at arranging an Olympic-themed wedding for you—snow shoes down the aisle, anyone?) We hope you’ll be lucky enough to meet Jamie on your visit to our chapel.
Jamie, you haven’t changed one bit. 🙂
