    So finally here's some opinion of the wedding that we had in Vegas...
    We got married at the Vegas Wedding Chapel (across from the licensing bureau). All I can say about them is that it was clean inside and out. They day before and after we drove by some other chapels that we had considered. The Chapels we looked at (Little Chapel of the Flowers, Viva Las Vegas, Graceland, etc.) were in very dirty parts of town. Some looked as if they were actually attached to cheap motels. I would have been horrified if I arrived on my wedding day and saw what I saw there.

    Here's the pictures from wedding:

    Typical of all of the chapels they do take you into a room and try to sell you more pictures. What I did appreciate about this is that they do tell you up front on the website and in their brochure that they will do this.

    We had photographer meet us there

    Michelle was absolutely amazing and I can't say enough about her. She agreed to 1 hour of photos and she ended up taking about 3 hours. I never thought that the photos would ever come out as good as they did.
    Here's a few books that I put together with the pics.
    our wedding album by Kimberly - Photo Book @ www.artscow.com

    We stayed at The MGM Signature and absolutely loved it! It was beautifully clean and new. The noise level was very low. It was not as far off of the strip as I thought it would and once you walked to block to the strip (or through the MGM) everything was right there. I highly recommend!

    We took suggestions and ate at the Pampas the night before. Big mistake! The women were up all night sick because of the food (we think undercooked meat or something). So I only got 1 hour of sleep the night/morning of my wedding!

    We ate at Rosemary's the day of the wedding. Absolutely wonderful! Great food, great prices, fabulous serivice. They gave us a free dessert b/c of the wedding. Also, Wed night is lady's night so the 3 women ate for 1/2 price. With 2 rounds of drinks and desserts it came to about $480 with tips for 4 people. This was a 3 course meal for all of us and desserts. It's worth the trip off the strip!

    Maddame Tusseauds: Worth it only if you have discount tickets. Fun but not large and the figures are outdated somewhat.

    The best place we ate was the Seafood Buffet at the Rio. Again off the strip but absolutely the best buffet we have ever been, too.

    If I think of anything else to rate or if you have questions, let me know.

          Great review and very helpful. Did you use the Vegas Wedding Chapel on S 3rd Street?? If so did you use the Chapel or Terrace? I have been looking at the pics on their website but would like to know what its really like inside. Thanks.

                Congratulations. It sounded like a amazing day and your pictures are beautiful. What time of day did you go to Red Rock Canyon? How was it in the heat with your dress and makeup?? The running shoes were a great idea.....I am going to do that too:)

                    We were married in Jan and were at Red Rock and at about 3. But since it was Jan there was no heat. I did buy all white sneakers and I don't think I would have made it on the side of the mountain without them.

                      Just an update from all of that.  I did not go into much detail about the chapel because I had an agreement as part of the settlement not to day anything bad publicly.
