Please allow me to interject a message from Poverty Pete,
who hopefully will have internet service shortly in Nashville. He said to remind everyone he is definitily planning to participate in the Huntsville Meeting. If things go right he will be back on line sometime next week.
Now, from me... Susan, I missed your post about the Elvis Wedding Chapel
info. However I will be proud to share the story with you that Janet and I were married in 1995 at the "Little White Wedding Chapel" (the one seen often in the Vegas Video-stories due to it's famous Drive-up Wedding Window Service) W
e did not use the Drive-thru, but chose an outdoor fountain/patio area and paid the $40 fee without rancor! If we had budgeted a bit more ($85) we could have used the services of an Elvis costumed 'Minister'....and if we had really gone all-out we could have had the service done in a Helicopter (Janet and I and our two witnesses) flying over the strip with the Elvis-clad Minister doing the service in the air. (all videoed for later viewing) Cost for that was $265 (plus tip for the Pilot and Minister).
We tended towards the minimum expense for that weekend, so our ceremony was adequate, but not 'Holywoodish' !!!
Here is the Blushing Bride as we prepared for our future together... Neither one would give-up a moment of the years since this was taken !!
