Welcome to our Vegas wedding page. You may ask why Vegas? April of 2010, our friends Ed and Sharron invited us to join them for a week at their time share. Neither of us had ever been to Vegas and we gladly accepted. We didn’t know what to expect. It was gaudy, loud, crowded, can be expensive, and just walking down the street can be an adventure. At the time, there were a lot of “card snappers” to contend with (look it up). Guess what? We loved it!!
Since then, we have been back 8 times. Not that gambling can't be fun (when you win) and there are excellent high end bars and restaurants, but we discovered there is a lot more to do than gamble on the strip. Over the years, we visited the Neon Museum (a well-kept “junk yard” of all the old Neon Signs from early Vegas), The Mob Museum, Zip Lining in Boot Leg Canyon (and Freemont Street), Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon, Driving a Jeep through some amazing terrain, Xscream ride on top of the Stratosphere (and I jumped off), Container Park, The Atomic Testing Museum, The High Roller, numerous shows, Ditch Friday (pool party with Robin Thicke), Madame Tussauds and the creme da la crème, a helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon where we landed on a ledge and got out to have lunch.
When we decided to get married (it had been suggested on previous trips), Vegas was the obvious choice, as was being married by Elvis at Viva Las Vegas.
