Is "Elvis" an actual minister?
The "Elvis" tribute artist is not an actual licenced minister. We provide an actual minister to do the legal part of the marriage and sign the paperwork, either just before the "Elvis" ceremony or just after. The actual minister can actually be in the service with "Elvis" if you want, however, the "Elvis" usually just takes on the role of the minister for the ceremony that is recorded on your video.
May I bring my own minister?
Yes, but only if they are licensed to perform marriages in the State of Nevada. If you wish to have someone outside the chapel perform your ceremony for you, please let us know ahead of time. You will be charged an additional $60.00. Please have them bring with them a copy of their "Certificate of Permission to Perform Marriages".

Wedding packages are good for up to 30 guests unless otherwise stated. Reservations exceeding 30 guests may be subject to additional fees ($10 per extra guest). The Chapel simply cannot hold more then 40 guests.
May we write our own vows?
Each of our ministers perform a beautiful and personal ceremony. If you feel strongly about writing your own vows we understand, but ask that you keep them to no more then 1 minute each in length. They must also be approved by your minister prior to the ceremony. They can be e-mailed or mailed to us. The two of you will say your vows directly to each other rather than having the minister read them for you to repeat.
May we take video and photos with our own cameras during the cermony?
You may photograph and video during the ceremony only, if your package includes photos and video and as long as all guests remain in their seats so as to not interfere with any videos and photos that we will be taking. If your package does not include photos and video, and you wish to take your own photos and video, a fee of $400 will be charged. Photos may only be taken by our photographer before and after the ceremony in the chapel, unless the extra fee is paid.
