Feelin’ Lucky in Vegas


Michaelyn and Joseph Bruer are feeling lucky in more ways than one! When Michaelyn stepped out of the limo, she was beaming. She just glowed with beauty. I loved her dress and her hair piece; she really was gorgeous from head to toe. Joseph looked very handsome. They seemed like the perfect match for each other!

Once Upon A Time

As a Wedding Coordinator here at Chapel of the Flowers, I have the opportunity to see couples’ dreams come true every day. Everyone is so different, and they have so many different aspects to what will make “their day” the most perfect day. It is so wonderful to be a small part of so many people’s lives! To make the best job in the whole world that much better, I was lucky enough to participate in a very special wedding of someone who is very important to me – my Mom!

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.

Happy 50th Anniversary!


On November 19th, I had the joy of meeting a couple that have been married for 50 years! Nancy and Patricio Mena were celebrating their 50th anniversary with all their closest family members. Their son booked everything for them and contacted all of their family members, so that they could join them and watch as they renew vows in Las Vegas!

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed…


This is the first time I have taken the opportunity to write about any of our couples, so I couldn’t help but to decide on an experience that really stood out to me.

So near yet so far away



It was love at first sight, when John and Kim first met. It was just an ordinary day and John had a long day at work, so he decided to go to the local bar to get some dinner and a few drinks. He had no intentions on meeting any new people or staying out for too long. However, he saw his friend there, so he went up to her and started talking; it was then that he realized she was there with one of her girlfriends, who happened to be Kim.

New Friends in Familiar Places


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.

Ryan and Lindsey


Ryan and Lindsey were married in the La Capella chapel on 9-10-11. In attendance were about 40 guests and all of them so excited to see them marry one another on this one-of-a-kind date. I could tell that Ryan and Lindsey were two very special people that had a lot of people who loved them.

Today Was A Fairytale


On August 23, 2011, Kim and Mike Newman were married on a yacht on Lake Las Vegas! It was an experience that I will remember for years to come! Little did Mike and Kim know that it was Shanna and my first time doing a Lake Las Vegas wedding on the yacht. It turned out to be a success! Let me explain why.
