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!
Vow renewal or not, this is a special marriage
One of my favorite things about meeting couples who were married here several years back is when I ask if they would consider renewing their vows. We heard about Doyalene and Gary Layton and their beautiful vow renewal ceremony, so naturally I would think that when you have love between two people for that long, it only makes sense to renew your vows and honor it. Well, apparently that’s not the case.

They had 35 guests come to Las Vegas to attend their wedding. David did not want to see Kerry before she walked down the aisle, so he wore a blindfold the entire time they were arriving and meeting with the minister. The next 10 years went on to produce two children of theirs along with more of life’s celebrations.
