Married At Midnight! Las Vegas’ First Couple To Marry On The Busiest Wedding Date Of The Year - 11/12/13 - Says “I Do” With Elvis,Smashburger-Themed Nuptials

At the stroke of midnight, the first couple to marry in Las Vegas on the iconic date of 11/12/13 said “I do” with Elvis officiating and a 6-tier, piping hot wedding cake made entirely of Smashburgers. The wedding kicked off the nation’s busiest wedding date of the year – 11/12/13 with more than 2,500 couples around the country expected to marry throughout the day.

Elvis, a.k.a. Brendan Paul of the Graceland Wedding Chapel, walked the bride, Darlene Hielscher, down the aisle, to her groom, Bryan Porter, while strumming the guitar. As he presided over the wedding, Elvis worked in song titles of his classic songs, making the couple vow to always “love each other tender” and to never “suspicious minds.” Finally, once Elvis pronounced the Ormond Beach, Fla. couple “husband and wife,” they sliced right into the wedding cake that included layers of Smashburger’s signature Classic Smash; Bacon Cheeseburger; Spicy Baja and the Sin City Burger, a one-of-kind burger created specifically for Las Vegas. Nearly 100 hamburgers were needed to make this unique creation to come to life. Bryan, an avid Elvis fan, wore shorts and a blue Hawaiian shirt with guitars. The bride donned a white lace-top, jeans and her favorite pair of boots.

“This was the most exciting thing we’ve ever done,” says the new Mrs. Porter. “We’ve always wanted to get married in Las Vegas. When we were talking about when to get married, Bryan thought it would be fun to get married on 11/12/13.”

Bryan adds, “Well, I thought of the date 11/12/13 because I wanted an anniversary I could easily remember.”

Their love of burgers and each other began in 2011. They went on their first date and met for lunch. They talked for hours as they drank beer and ate hamburgers. Afterward, Bryan asked Darlene if they just went on a date. She replied, “We rode in the same car, ate burgers and held hands: I’d say that was a date.”
