Getting Married Again In Las Vegas – with Elvis!

To celebrate the occasion our 33rd wedding anniversary the backpacking husband and I renewed our wedding vows by getting married again in Las Vegas at The Graceland Chapel in Las Vegas Nevada with Elvis as our minister.

It was such a fun and fabulous and romantic day!

First, we were picked up from our hotel in a stretch limousine – but when our driver called our hotel room to announce his arrival he apologised – and explained that he’d have to meet us at the end of the hotel driveway because the limo was TOO LONG to make the turn at the top.

I leaped up and down with excitement squealing THE LIMO’S TOO LONG TO MAKE THE TURN!

We chose the world famous Graceland Wedding Chapel for our wedding vows renewal because it is the oldest wedding chapel in Las Vegas and we thought it would be fun if Elvis Presley conducted our service.

Now, we know he wasn’t the real deal – as that would have been too spooky – but our Elvis was a great impersonator and he made our wedding renewal day special as well as fun.

The Graceland Wedding Chapel has been featured in many Holly wood movies like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas with Johnny Depp. It is also a popular venue for celebrity weddings as lots of pop stars and rock musicians have famously tied the knot there – including members of KISS and Deep Purple and Jon Bon Jovi – and now us!!

The photos below of our Graceland Wedding Chapel service are taken from a video (which in such a strange format that I can’t edit it for clips) showing me being escorted up the aisle by Elvis Himself and him singing to us before we said our wedding vows.

Saying our vows to each other again after 33 years was actually a very special, tender, and incredibly romantic time for us.

Then the fun really began with the ‘Elvis Vows’.

I then had to promise not to step on my husband’s Blue Suede Shoes or treat him like a Hound Dog and to tell him that he would always be my Loving Teddy Bear. He had to promise to Love Me Tender and never leave me at Heartbreak Hotel etc – and we could hardly speak for laughing.

Then we sang and danced to Viva Las Vegas and had photos taken.

It was a fabulously romantic and laugh-out-loud fun and bucket-list day for us and we created some wonderfully happy memories to look back on for hopefully many more married years to come!
