I got married at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel 2 weeks ago today. We bought the Pink Caddy Package, with some extras, such as silk flowers, an extra song, and live streaming/archive. Let me tell you, it was totally worth every penny of what we paid.
The wedding coordinators were very helpful, even when I changed my mind a couple of times. And we were told to contact them when we checked in, and did a phone run through of the direction timing for the ceremony. They sent me a wedding invitation email for me to forward to friends and family, complete with the time, and the link for the website to watch the wedding if they couldn't make it.
The blog they provide is really fun. They give you some suggestions, but you can make it whatever you want. I noticed a lot of people didn't fill it out, but we did, and our friends were directed there so they could see what happened during our relationship.
The limo driver contacted us for our time, and even though she got there early, she texted us, saying she was downstairs, but to take our time. And she maneuvered through the traffic like a true professional.
The chapel was very clean and at a comfortable temperature. The staff was friendly, professional, and well organized. Any questions we had were answered. The decor was beautiful, even though that didn't matter to us. They even did a walk through of the ceremony, so we'd know what to expect. I'd seen some of the chapel's weddings on You Tube, and they were very tasteful, thoughtful and sentimental, and yet had a real Elvis humor vibe to them. Ours was no exception.
Elvis asked us how we met, and incorporated that tidbit into the ceremony. Because I was totally decked out in Elvis regalia, I felt like Elvis wanted to make ours a fun wedding, which he did, and he turned it into my dream wedding. Goodness, we even wore Elvis sunglasses, and he didn't make us take them off during the ceremony. A few jokes were made, which I thought were appropriate and tasteful, considering what craziness we'd accomplished.
Our Elvis was probably the one I would have picked if we were allowed to choose. He was funny, caring, attentive, thoughtful, and even tried to get my new husband to dance like him, but no way was that happening. And boy can that man sing! If I didn't know better, I'd swear Elvis was alive and well, and living in Las Vegas. The photographer was excellent, not getting in the way of the ceremony, and yet capturing every important moment during the ceremony (aka candid shots). And the closed, posed session was superb, just like formal weddings I've been to. Getting pictures of Elvis with his lip curled (I tried, but couldn't do it) was priceless. One of my friends back home watched the live stream of the event, and she said it was a flawless feed.
All in all, it was very professionally handled. If you decide to get married on a whim, fly to Vegas and contact the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel for a fun and yet sentimental wedding. www.vivalasvegasweddings.com
It was the wedding I'd always dreamed of. Thank you, thank you very much!
