Graceland Wedding Chapel
After Las Vegas relaxed its marriage license laws following World War II, the resulting increase in weddings motivated the owners of this little house to convert the front section of their home into a chapel, naming it McKee's Gretna Green Wedding Chapel. In 1967, Elvis Presley unexpectedly stopped by to tour the chapel (later that year he would marry Priscilla).
Following his death 10 years later, the venue changed its name to Graceland Wedding Chapel in his honor and began its signature Elvis-themed ceremonies. Couples can opt for a traditional wedding package, commitment ceremony, or vow renewal at the Graceland Wedding Chapel.
