Our Summer Holiday in the USA - Part 3.

So then after San Diego we jumped back on the plane and flew into Las Vegas on a Friday. I was looking forward to "Vegas Baby!" We stayed at the Paris Hotel which was right in the middle of the strip and like being in Paris, Las Vegas is a full on city, Lots of casinos obviously, lots of smoking, lots of hassling when you are walking down the street. Lots of wealth, walking through the foyers of fancy hotels like the Bellagio, the Venetian, Caesars Palace, the opulence was jaw dropping. On the other side we saw the most homeless people in Vegas. Our day trip to the Grand Canyon was unfortunately cancelled due to bad weather. Oh well, next time.
 
The big highlight of our Las Vegas leg of the trip was that Daz and I renewed our wedding vows at the Graceland Chapel. We got remarried by Elvis! It was so funny!! We had the best day. We hired the dress and tux, had a limo pick us all up and drive us to and from the chapel. Elvis himself was hilarious and had us in stitches for the while 15 minute ceremony. He walked me down the isle to Love Me Tender, we all walked back up the isle to Viva Las Vegas. It was awesome. After the ceremony we all had dinner at the very fancy Eiffel Tower Restaurant and then Daz and I went to see Rock of Ages at the Venetian. Due to us still being in our wedding attire, we got upgraded in out seats and free champagne at the bar next door, Daz is a bit worried that he now has to remember two wedding anniversaries! The next morning however it was everything back into our suitcases and off on our last leg of this amazing holiday, Los Angeles!

Sounds like you had a ball! I got married in Las Vegas originally……..yes, really! Going on 43 years in July! You brought back a lot of memories, even though Elvis didn't marry us! Actually, he was still alive when we got married. lol
