Couples flock to famous Las Vegas chapel to tie the knot on Valentine's Day

Love in in the air

Dozens of couples flocked to A Little White Wedding Chapel near South Las Vegas Boulevard and East Charleston to tie the knot on Valentine's Day.

"Next wedding," said Owner Charolette Richards.

Richards was incredibly busy throughout our interview.

Staff members tell 13 Action News the holiday is basically like the organization's Super Bowl.  Brides were lined up from around the world.

"If we go to Las Vegas, we needed to get married there," said one bride from Brazil.

Richards has been blessing couples at the chapel since 1958.

"You two are going to spend the rest of your life together," she said to one couple moments after their wedding.

Minister Mujahid Ramadan says marriage is not only good for the soul.

"You add anywhere from 7 to 11 years onto a man's life," he said.

We had the privilege of watching one couple's ceremony.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Foley, from California, were joined by many loved ones for their special day.

"I'm just so happy," said Mrs. Foley.

Richards says getting married is not difficult.  A marriage license costs less than 80 dollars and there is no waiting period.
