  LAS VEGAS WEDDINGS: A BRIEF HISTORY,
CELEBRITY GOSSIP, EVERYTHING ELVIS,
AND THE COMPLETE CHAPEL GUIDE

is a celebration of the city’s wedding industry through
its various transformations. Some of the book’s many
features include:

The quirky tale of how a desert oasis became the luminous locale for over 120,000 weddings annually.

Entertaining anecdotes of the part played by the famous and infamous, names known far and wide, in making Las Vegas what it is today. Even Homer Simpson and his next- door neighbor Ned Flanders had a hand in shaping our perceptions.

Over 55 romantic celebrity stories, from silent movie star Clara Bow to pop teen queen Britney Spears. Some, like Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s were short, if not sweet. Others, like Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward’s, have lasted forever.

A warm-hearted look at the goings on at a wedding chapel, from arranging flowers first thing in the morning to locking the doors late at night.

An up-close take on the role of Elvis impersonators at today’s nuptials – he’s treated like a member of the family.

An overview of themed weddings, such as Elvis’s Blue Hawaii, Camelot, Star Trek, Gangster, and many more.

Colorful descriptions of the town’s weddings chapels, from the funky standalones to those in the Strip’s swankiest resorts.
