good morning guys here in Las Vegas a
place known for many things today we’re
going to get a look at the wedding

a very unique way of getting married

and papa hello Mama Petra
right there hold back
we lost a baby two weeks ago yeah and so
we decided to come to Vegas and marry
here when did you make that decision two
weeks ago uh seven days ago seven days
yes I think the shortest notice I had
was for a helicopter waiting for hours
with photographer limousine and all of
this okay I made it happen we have
visitors coming in these are my friends
Heidi and Joe look at the outfits yeah
very special this is Peter so you have a
mob theme going on here but we’re not
like Elvis you don’t want
our ceremony is all about family and
respect and things like that that’s what
Mom was about that’s what marriage is
about people to think the mob was
killing and crime sure that was the
business side but the other side was
family respect Integrity loyalty
our ceremony is all about that and the
cool thing is it fits anybody
Sarah and annelina we have been invited
here to share this very special moment
in your lives that you will love her
honor her respect her and keep her for
the rest of your life
and please also seal it with little kiss
on her hand
it’s a beautiful almost forgotten
gesture that you can do anywhere in the
world and it’s always going to remind
you of this very special moment by the
state of Nevada and as a minister in the
name of the Lord I now proudly pronounce
you wife and wife feel your commitment
with a big kiss

what we don’t do than what we do do we
never stop we do about 6 000 weddings a
year roughly wow so obviously the Elvis
waiting room this is the doo-wop Diner
yeah so this is fun we do Elvis weddings
in here and we do receptions and we go
back to the 50s and do like ice cream
sundae bar and burgers and a cake what
does it cost to do a wedding like this
they really vary we have so many
packages the lowest I would say is
probably about 295 somewhere around
there but we also do receptions we have
a huge event center that we can cater up
to 250. our most expensive is fifteen
thousand but we have ones for five six
seven thousand and that includes cake DJ
flowers limos Food Bar
20 years 20 years since he was 15 years
old pretty much Caitlin you started
working when you were five years old

mean I was just saying you’ve been here
for 20 years yeah so he worked with the
original owners was that at the start of
themed weddings 20 years ago pretty much
yeah and he was actually he was the the
one that started Elvis weddings in town
because nobody was doing those he worked
at the Tropicana yeah it was at the
Folly project what do you love about
this business
the variety of weddings it’s not your
weddings all the time so there’s so much
going on especially Halloween we’re
booked right now for October pretty much
already well we have like Gothic
weddings with Dracula and Grim Reaper
and Freddy Krueger and
people dress up makeup and it’s like it
really evolved I know it’s great it’s
not your it’s not your traditional way

yeah I’ve been living in the
interview in there yeah
yeah okay okay so you guys came all the
way from the UK to what get married here

and we added a couple of days of holiday
so it was like would you like to marry
me in Vegas yeah okay who asked who did
the proposal okay I asked him to wear
so cool so you’re nervous sorry
you didn’t invite them no well I was
there you need to live still alive
what did they say when you told them
she was really happy about it this is so
cool I got married during the pandemic
with my wife
in a government office and we never did
our proper wedding
it’s interesting to see uh people do it
a different way I’ve never seen the
wedding setup I like the fact that it’s
low maintenance you just come in here
and everything’s taken care of
how long have you two been together
seven years it wasn’t first date a few
weeks ago or anything no no okay we’re
freezing all day crazy we did I did

Gareth and Valentino this is a very
special celebration and we’re all
honored that you invited us to share
with you the happiest day of your lives
it is not only finding the right mate
which you obviously already have but
also being the right mate which takes a
little practice the vows you about to
say to one another not to be spoken
lightly if you don’t take these vows
seriously and live by them your life
will be much less enjoyable than it
could be but if you abide by these
promises of loving caring then your
lifetime together will be far more
blessed and exciting than you can

to be your beloved wife do you promise
to love her comfort and cherish her
honor and keep her in sickness and in
health and forsaking all others keep
yourself only for her for as long as you
