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

Darlene, 43, sales assistant, and Bryan, 46, IBEW electrician, have been engaged since winter 2012. They dated in high school and reconnected two years ago. This trip also marks their first to Las Vegas and for Darlene, her first time to the West coast.

The couple was selected from a national campaign Smashburger executed earlier this year. With hundreds of interested couples from around the country, lovebirds were asked to submit a video via social media, explaining their love for one another and of course, burgers. To see Darlene and Bryan’s winning entry, click here: http://youtu.be/uAknNjo4sU8.

“Smashburger is a young and vibrant brand. As such, we love adding a modern twist to traditions, that’s why we wanted to have this unique wedding. What says new and trendy more than getting married by Elvis on a unique date like 11/12/13 with burgers,” says Stacie Lange, senior vice president of communications, Smashburger.

As for the full package of what the couple received as Smashburger’s winning couple, in addition to the Elvis-and-burgers-themed nuptials:

-Roundtrip airfare from their hometown to Las Vegas courtesy of Smashburger.

-Two nights of accommodations in the spacious and stylish all-new Bally’s Jubilee Tower suites at Bally's Las Vegas.

-Couples’ Massage at Bally's Las Vegas Spa.

Two tickets to Jubilee!, the longest-running show on the Las Vegas Strip and the last showgirl production of its kind.

-One year’s worth of Smashburgers that can be experienced at any Smashburger location throughout the U.S.

ABOUT GRACELAND CHAPEL

Graceland Wedding Chapel has been a part of Las Vegas for more than 60 years. Thousands of couples over the years have walked down the aisle in this quaint little chapel, located right on the Las Vegas Strip. Offering something a little more ‘Vegas’ for those who want to re-create a wedding fit for a ‘king’ — the king of Rock ’n’ Roll that is. Since Elvis himself made an appearance at the chapel back in 1967, the chapel is the first to offer the ever-popular “Elvis” Wedding, where upon request Elvis will walk the Bride down the aisle, give her away, and provide musical entertainment. Since then, many musical and film celebrities have either made an appearance (Johnny Depp, Salma Hayek, Matthew Perry, Jay Leno, Andie McDowell and others) or actually said “I Do” (some include Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Ray Cyrus, Rob Zombie and band members from the Beastie Boys, The Thompson Twins, Def Leppard, KISS and Deep Purple). Normally though, the people who come to the chapel to marry are everyday folks from all walks of life and from almost every country in the world. The chapel features stretch limousine service (also a cotton candy pink 1967 Cadillac Brougham, for those who really want to be authentic), fresh or silk flowers, professional photography and digital recordings of the ceremony.
