Not once but twice, Vow Renewal


Melisa and J.P. Feustel got married at Chapel of the Flowers inside the Magnolia Chapel just about 11 years ago. They were coming to Las Vegas, once again, but this time just for a vacation, or so J.P. thought. However, Melisa had other plans. She had actually planned a secret renewal of vows ceremony for her and J.P. She planned everything from Florida, and even bought a cute white dress for the ceremony. About two hours before their 8:00 p.m. ceremony, Melisa asked J.P. if he would marry her again. He was shocked, but then happily agreed!

Once they arrived to the chapel, and got out of the limo, you could tell they were excited and happy to back! As I was checking them in and getting everything ready for them, they both kept telling me and their photographer, Emil, stories about when they first married, and their new life together. For their ceremony, they decided that J.P. would wait for his bride once again. Melisa also walked down the aisle to their original wedding song! During the ceremony, the couple exchanged personal vows that made each other cry. Melisa was very sweet for planning their secret vow renewal, and I could tell that J.P. felt very loved and appreciated.


As a coordinator, I always enjoy hearing all the different stories that my couples share. Melisa’s and J.P.’s was very sweet and special! I wish them only the best. Congratulations!
