Yes, I admit it, I am a TLC and WE network junkie. I will sit and watch “Say Yes to the Dress” or “Four Weddings” episodes back-to-back, all day long, even if I’ve seen them before (which, I usually have). My husband can’t understand it at all because the last thing he wants to do when he gets home is watch television shows about what he does all day at work. I’ve explained to him that being a Wedding Planner is more than just a “punch-in, punch-out” kind of job. It is an ever-changing, always evolving, opportunity to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for people that they will remember for the rest of their lives. I think that he, like many people, was under the assumption that getting married in Las Vegas was what you see in movies like “What Happens in Vegas” and “The Hangover.”
Upon entering the Chapel grounds, we saw couples having their photos taken and seeing them so happy gave us confidence that we had made the right choice. Whilst we didn’t have an appointment, Katie, our planner was very welcoming and asked all the right questions to ensure we got the package we wanted. Both of us are normally so nervous about having our photograph taken, but Vanessa, our photographer, was so warm and natural that we felt totally at ease and because she made us feel so special, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The choice of packages was so good and the Traditional package that we decided upon more than lived up to our expectations. We particularly like having the candle to take home with us to the UK. Beautiful chapel and settings; the different areas on the grounds with their own individual themes make for some lovely photographic backdrops. We researched online and checked the reviews of couples who had recently gotten married at Chapel of the Flowers; which is currently listed by TripAdvisor as number 4 in the list of things to do in Vegas. A perfect day and just what we wanted: simple, traditional, yet truly special and memorable. We could certainly recommend Chapel of the Flowers to our friends and family without hesitation.
Ricky and Lauren have been together for six years when they tied the knot on Wednesday in our LaCapella Chapel with 24 guests in attendance. They began planning their wedding with us in mid-August of 2010. More than 20 of their closest friends and family traveled to Las Vegas all the way from the United Kingdom to join them. Ricky and Lauren were both very nervous, as well as all of Lauren’s bridal party, as they lined up to walk down the aisle, but it was sweet bliss for the newly-wed couple after the ceremony was over.
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.
Excellent! It was all perfect! Archel, our wedding planner, was the absolute best!! Plus, Danette and Mike, our photographers were the best! The chapel grounds were superb. Our experience was unbelievable!! We would definitely recommend to anyone.
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.
Brazil’s ‘Martha Stewart’, Ana Maria Braga stages a fake wedding with all the hoopla at Chapel of the Flowers for her show ‘Mais Voce’ on Rede Globo.
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! These Canadians met at the University of New Brunswick about 2 1/2 years ago. They were engaged for 1 1/2 years and now getting married.
This beautiful couple from Brazil had their ceremony in the Magnolia Chapel on Saturday June 18! All of their guests were so excited for the couple and most traveled very far to be a part of this memorable ceremony in Las Vegas.
