ELVIS VOW RENEWAL
There are many chapels in Las Vegas where you can renew your wedding vows –or say I DO for the first time. Why not do it with the King of Rock and Roll! Doesn’t get any more romantic than looking into the eyes of your lover and declaring your Burning Love until death do you part.
Our vow renewal was way back in 2004 for our 10th anniversary. Elvis Presley serenaded us and gyrated as we said our vows. He finished with an appropriate rendition of Viva Las Vegas.
This was all done at the Graceland Wedding Chapel, the oldest wedding chapel in Las Vegas. It lays claim to being the original chapel with Elvis officiating the ceremony. No, we aren’t THAT old! That was way back in 1977.
Nowadays the Graceland Wedding Chapel makes state-of-the-art video recordings, but ours was made on a VHS, way back in the day, that I converted to digital in order to share the Elvis melodies during our ceremony.

The romance never gets old with different songs, and different choreography, but the same beauty. A must-see, stunning array of water, lights, music, and a show of pure creative imagination.
