Helene always dreamed of her wedding taking place in a chapel or in a Catholic Church. However, the man she fell in love with and wanted to call her husband had gone through a divorce. In France, there is a rule that you can not re-marry in the Catholic Church. Regardless of that, it did not stop Xavier and Helene from getting married and starting a family together.
The Edge Radio Station in New Zealand held a contest for two well-deserving couples in which they partnered with Chapel of the Flowers. The winners of the radio contest won a trip to Las Vegas to elope here at Chapel of the Flowers. However, the catch was that they could not tell their families where they were at or what they were doing. The radio station did a live broadcast from inside our La Capella Chapel, directly to their listeners in New Zealand! The couples were both interviewed prior to their ceremony, and then their ceremony was broadcasted live. After the couples said ‘I do,’ they called their mom and dad; however, they had to call them with the news of their newly-minted wedding as their conversations were being broadcasted live.
Robert and Sandra and their two children flew in from Hertfordshire to get married after being together for 20 years. They were such a fun couple and by far one of my favorite weddings that I have coordinated. It wasn’t that they had an over-the-top ceremony, it was very intimate and simple, but Robert and Sandra had such a wonderful spirit to them that I will remember them for years to come.

Adam and Tawnya have a special place in my heart. Why, you might ask? They are from my hometown in Canada and they came to Las Vegas to get married at Chapel of the Flowers!
