Happy 25th Anniversary!
Diana and John Oldridge were married here at Chapel of the Flowers 25 years ago! Then, exactly 25 years later, they came back to Las Vegas to renew their vows.
John let Diana plan their vow renewal ceremony. She made sure that everything was exactly as it was 25 years ago. They had their ceremony in the Victorian Chapel at 7 p.m., which was the same chapel that they got married in, and was even at the same time! Diana and John brought one of their original wedding photos, and they had it displayed in the chapel. Diana also had us customize a 25-red rose bouquet for her, and each rose represented a year of marriage. It was beautiful and such a special touch!
Both Diana and John were very sweet, and you could tell they were still very much in love. They explained how they had been together through the bad and good times. Diana explained how she was a breast cancer survivor, and John helped her win her battle. They also shared how they split everything so that everything is equal in their relationship. They have a “family account,” but then also have their separate accounts. They split every payment in two, and even discuss who will pay the bill and who will tip. It’s always great to hear how different each couple is and what works best for them.
Diana and John are proof that you can stay married for years, and still be best friends! I wish them the best with the rest of their marriage.
