wedding-chapel-875532_960_720A lot of famous folks have tied the knot in Las Vegas. Many have untied the knot there too. It works both ways.

If you drive Las Vegas Boulevard up the Strip all the way to the Fremont Street area, you will pass dozens of wedding chapels. There is usually one featured in every movie shot in Las Vegas. Some are not visible from the Strip because they are located inside the casinos.
