Some of what Vegas is Famous for
The Chapel of the Bells is one of the many places in Vegas that you can get married in. Vegas has themed weddings, weddings performed by Elvis and even drive through weddings.
In continuous operation for over forty years, the Chapel of the Bells has married countless couples in ceremonies ranging from intimate to grand. The pageant can begin with a limousine, which lands you at the Chapel of the Bells in style after you complete legal paperwork at the County Courthouse. A lush garden greets arriving couples at the chapel.
Past celebrity marriages include Mickey Rooney, Ernest Borgnine, Pele (the South American Soccer Champion), Kelly Ripa and Beverly DeAngelo. A record number of soldiers tied the knot before Desert Storm.
Some families have made the Chapel of the Bells a tradition, with parents returning to watch their kids and even grand kids give new meaning to the words "holy matrimony."
