Call us at 702-384-0771 to ask about our custom Elvis Wedding Cakes in a variety of sizes and price ranges!
Easter’s on its way, and being an Elvis Wedding Chapel and all, we thought we’d share this super easy Elvis Presley cake recipe that we came across on the Internet. It’s said that this is his grandmother’s recipe and Elvis’s favorite. We’re planning to bake one up for Easter and see why it was “The King’s” favorite!
We’re also thinking of tinting the coconut in pastels…and maybe adding a jelly bean or two for decoration!
ELVIS PRESLEY CAKE
1 box yellow cake mix
1⁄3 cup oil
1 1⁄3 cups water
1 box powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
1 (14 oz.) can crushed pineapple in syrup
12 ounces of semi-sweet shredded coconut
Follow package directions to prepare yellow cake mix and add batter to a 9 x 12 pan.
While the cake is baking, put pineapple and syrup in a small sauce pan.
Add granulated sugar to the pineapple. Cook over medium heat but do not brown pineapple.
In another small saucepan, heat the cream cheese and 1/2 box of powdered sugar.
Add more powdered sugar as needed to make icing.
Remove cake from oven and punch holes all over with the handle of a wooden spoon.
Pour the hot pineapple mix over the top of the cake and allow to absorb.
Drizzle the icing mix over the cake.
Top with chopped pecans and coconut.

Or, if you are having a traditional or themed wedding, our gourmet cake baker will create something more traditional, or something to go with the theme of your wedding! Call us for more info on our receptions, cakes, and wedding cake and champagne to go! 702-384-0771

Only at Viva Las Vegas Weddings! Your wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony can be conducted by just about any iconic singer/actor impersonator you can name. Viva Las Vegas Weddings has lots of ties to the Vegas entertainment industry, so we can usually customize your wedding with your favorite “star” to do the honor–and maybe a song or two. We arrange your customized impersonator wedding as we do our Themed weddings, so if you don’t see the tribute artist of your dreams on the drop-down menu on our website, just give us your request and we’ll do our best to book it for you! www.vivalasvegasweddings.com

Have a look at a just a few of our outstandingly talented “celebrity ministers” below:
Of course we have all the classic Vegas stars (not just Elvis!) including Liberace at the keys. You can also have more than one impersonator—or your entire wedding party can dress up as celebrities. We’ve seen that a FEW times, and it’s always a hugely uplifting and memorable wedding to behold!

One of our most amazing impersonators does a mind-boggling Tom Jones. You’ll be dumbfounded by not only the physical resemblance, but by his nearly identical voice. Not convinced? We offer video evidence, below. It’s a sexy and romantic Vegas-style wedding, one you’ll want to stream live to friends and family back home who won’t believe it either.
The Tom Jones Wassup Pussycat package http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/themed_wedding_package_tomjones.htm includes everything but the panties for a sexy Vegas-style extravaganza.

Get married in Spring in a lovely Outdoor Garden Chapel–by Elvis!
It’s already feeling like spring here in Las Vegas–the best time of year to get married in our Outdoor Gazebo and Garden Chapels. The are both romantic and picturesque and VERY popular for Springtime weddings in Las Vegas. In your choice of lovely settings, you can tie the knot with a traditional minister, or…with Elvis! You can even get married outdoors at the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Elvis will show up to sing and marry you right in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip! (Your limo brings YOU, and you’ll also meet up with your photographer and videographer, who will bring your bouquet and boutonnière along!)
If you want to add Elvis as your “minister” to one of our outdoor wedding packages, simply let us know that’s what you’d like. The slight upgrade in package price will depend on the number of songs you want Elvis to perform. (Elvis performing your ceremony and singing one song will be an additional $150, for example.) Scroll down our webpage to find the right outdoor wedding for you, then just ask to add Elvis when you call us to schedule your wedding: http://www.vivalasvegasweddings.com/lasvegasweddings-t.htm 702-384-0771
A truly unique outdoor wedding in Las Vegas is our Las Vegas Sign Wedding. What could be more kitschy than getting married there by another Vegas icon, Elvis! It’s an all-inclusive package that will be an unforgettable wedding adventure–or it makes the BEST wedding vow renewal! Bring your friends and family along. There’s plenty of parking right on the landscaped median. Scheduling your ceremony just before sunset makes for the most flattering photos, and the lights of the Strip behind you will just be coming on. But we can book your wedding at any time you choose! While you can’t get live streaming coverage of your wedding from there, as you can in any of our onsite chapels, there’s an Earthcam located and focused at the sign.
Be sure to book your springtime wedding early, before the heat of summer sets in! Our Garden and Gazebo chapels DO have a cooling mist system, the Las Vegas Sign is too toasty from about June-October. Questions? Give us a call at 702-384-0771.

Who wouldn’t want to exchange vows with Dumbledore, Snape, and a few storm troopers?For couples who can’t find just the right Traditional, Themed or Elvis Wedding among the dozens we offer, feel free to create your own, or combine two existing packages. Recently we came across this Harry Potter wedding with Star Wars characters as groomsmen on YouTube. it features VERY familiar intergalactic themed music as the bride glides down the aisle. Then there’s a quick transition to Harry Potter themed music and Dumbledore and Snape doing the matrimonial honors at the altar. We figure the bride wanted one theme, the groom another. That’s the kind of compromise that makes for a happily-ever-after kind of marriage! Have a look at the resultant ceremony, below:
Harry Potter (with a splash of Star Wars) wedding - YouTube
You can also compromise beautifully with a traditional wedding, traditional minister, and a surprise appearance of Elvis, Michael Jackson, Liberace, Tom Jones, or almost any music icon you can name, popping in to serenade the happy couple once the solemn vows are exchanged.
At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we’re happy to accommodate your wishes in any way we can. Elvis can perform your wedding and sing in our Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapels as well as in our ’50s Doo Wop Diner Chapel. And even though most of our themed weddings take place in our Main Chapel (just because that’s where the sets, props, theatrical lights and smoke are kept), we HAVE done them outdoors too. Notably, we’ve even done a Garden Wedding with James Bond pulling up in his fancy sports car right next to the outside pews! Other themes outdoors? We’ll do our best to make any of them work! Especially with gorgeous spring weather coming, and those lovely summer nights!
James Bond arrives to marry YOU….down our indoor chapel aisle, or right into your Garden Wedding ceremony!
Call one of our wedding planners today to ask any questions about customizing your wedding theme, adding characters, adding special music, adding almost anything you can dream up. Our motto? “If you can dream it, we can theme it!” 702-384-0771
Coming to Las Vegas to marry for the second time ’round often means a larger wedding party for YOU! What with the kids and all…grown or otherwise! Yes, we do many, many Traditional-style wedding vow renewals, and also lots of simply elegant second weddings, but we think it’s a fantastic chance to have some fun with the family–if an Elvis or Themed Wedding is more your thing these days! At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you can choose from our dozens of wedding package offerings, or make up one of your own.
Here are a few snapshots of little wedding attendants over the last few years!
She bop she bop, poodle skirts in the diner!
At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, you’re not limited at to one venue, either! We have the warm, traditional Main Chapel that converts into a theatrical stage for themed weddings. We also have our 1950s Doo Wop Diner Chapel for more casual and quirky Elvis, The Fonz, Grease, or whatever retro themed minister/’50s TV show theme character you have in mind. We also have two lovely and picturesque outdoor chapels, a sleek and sophisticated Little Chapel, and others!
“I am your father…? NOT!
So, dress up the kids as your wedding attendants for a second wedding spectacular in Vegas! While we do rent adult costumes in our costume shop (many people just bring their own, though!), we don’t generally have child sizes, so you’ll be on your own. But our helpful staff can give you advice on costuming, or we can recommend a GREAT costume shop just a mile or so from the Strip. Sometimes couples keep it as simple as funny hats or wigs. And sometimes EVERYONE is dressed as Elvis!
A mustache makes EVERYONE look older and more sophisticated….
Questions! Just call us up at 702-384-0771. Second weddings don’t require a marriage license, and all of our ceremonies can be performed as renewal-of-vows ceremonies. Be sure to ask about streaming your fun family wedding live online for the folks back home. Viva Las Vegas! www.vivalasvegasweddings.com
We’ll take care of everything, from flowers to photos to video documenting your wedding vow renewal in Vegas!
For happily married couples coming to Las Vegas to celebrate a big anniversary, there’s no more fun and unforgettable way to celebrate than by renewing your vows with, or without, Elvis! We even offer imaginative themed weddings, the wildly unique kind that you might have been wanted before you went the “safe” traditional wedding route instead. Now’s the time to do it YOUR way!
If you are planning a vow renewal ahead of time, and you haven’t yet mentioned it to your spouse, we can help you plan the whole affair as a SURPRISE! Just let us know that’s the plan, and we can help make it unbelievably magical for your mate, family and friends–who can actually watch online from home if you arrange for it–and if they can keep the secret!
Here are a few suggested steps for going about a surprise wedding vow renewal ceremony. You won’t need a license, so that makes it even simpler. Follow the guidelines below:
1. Book your trip to Vegas as an anniversary present to your spouse.
2. Check out our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com to choose the Traditional, Elvis, or Themed Wedding that’s going to blow your bride/groom away! ALL of our wedding packages can be performed as wedding vow renewal ceremonies. You just won’t need to go downtown for a marriage license!
3. Once you’ve selected a package, give us a call at 702-384-0771 and make sure you tell us it’s a SURPRISE VOW RENEWAL when you book your date and time. We’ll do the rest!
4. Plan exactly when you’ll reveal the surprise—If your wedding package includes limo service, tell your spouse when the limo arrives–perhaps after telling him/her that you’re dressing up for a nice dinner and you’ve ordered a car. If your package does not have limo service, just head out for “dinner” and tell them when you pull into the chapel. We’ve even had spouses tell their mates that they’re going to a wedding of someone ELSE at our chapel, only to find out it’s their own vow renewal!
Get re-wed in a romantic traditional ceremony, or with ELVIS!
Above is the view from the pews in our lovely Main Chapel, but you can also have a sweet and picturesque outdoor vow renewal in our Gazebo or Garden Chapels. You’ll find packages that include everything, starting at around $300. THEN you can go to a cozy intimate dinner!
Or book a wedding vow renewal ceremony with a THEME! Seen here is “Tut” in our set and props room, stocked for dozens of themed weddings!
Themed Wedding Packages are thrilling and unexpected, and extra fun if you happen to invite lots of family and friends along for the surprise. You’ll have theatrical fog and lights, themed music, sets, costumed characters…the works! And if you don’t seen the theme of your dreams, let us know and we’ll customize a wedding vow renewal just for you!
Remember to request your military discount if you’re a veteran. We’ll also put your names up in lights on the Strip above our chapel after your ceremony, with a flashing panel that will say “Married 25 years” or however many years of wedlock you happen to be celebrating. Our photographer will get a shot of both, and if you bring guests, they’ll want to bring their cameras to capture the moment as well!
More questions? You can secretly call us or chat online anytime to start planning the anniversary celebration of a lifetime! (See phone number and website link above.)
In Sin City, we have “our ways” to get you hitched with ease! Seen here, our Gangster Themed Wedding–where you can add your own Roaring ’20s style!
Only in Las Vegas! If you’re getting married in Las Vegas this week—for Valentine’s Day or Mardi Gras, you can visit the new pop-up marriage license office, greeting travelers at McCarran International Airport. The kiosk is located right in baggage claim! The Clark County Clerk’s Office will keep the office open from Feb. 9th to 17th to help alleviate holiday wedding traffic in the downtown Marriage Bureau. Besides Valentine’s Day weddings, there are also President’s Day and Chinese New Year weddings, plus Mardi Gras, masquerade style weddings.. “The days around Valentine’s Day and the Presidents’ Day weekend are always some of our busiest,” according to County Clerk Lynn Goya. The pop-up Marriage Bureau is located in the baggage claim area in Terminal 1. It’s open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through the end of the week. More here, from our local newspaper:
For any legal wedding (same-sex legal weddings are welcome here, too!) in Las Vegas, you will need a marriage license from the State of Nevada. There is no waiting period or blood test. The Marriage Bureau downtown is open from 8:00 a.m. until midnight every day of the year, including Sundays and holidays, for those who will be marrying after the airport kiosk closes. The Marriage Bureau is located at 201 Clark Ave Las Vegas, NV 89101. It’s within easy walking distance of the Golden Nugget and the Fremont Street Experience, in downtown Las Vegas.
The license fee is $77, and both parties must be present to obtain license. (Cash is best, since credit cards are not accepted.) If either party is divorced, you’ll need to provide the date, city and state of the most recent divorce.
Weddings can be big and complicated, but at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, most all the work is done for you!
Remember to bring your marriage license with you when you come to the chapel to get married. The minister will sign it and file it with the Clark County Clerk’s office within 10 days of the wedding. The Marriage Bureau will provide you with information on how to get certified copies of your marriage certificate after the wedding. You have one year from the date of issue of the Marriage License to have a licensed minister in the State of Nevada perform the wedding. And, DON’T FORGET THE RINGS!
We are really looking forward to a fun and busy week of weddings here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! Let us know if there’s anything we can do to make YOUR wedding arrangements easier and more streamlined. Our staffers await your questions and calls with a smile at 702-384-0771.
