Our Chapel Couples

Below are some comments and stories from some of our Graceland Chapel in the Woods couples:

Graceland Chapel CoupleChristina & Richard Polizzi
New Jersey
We thought Graceland would be the perfect location to renew our vows for our 5th wedding anniversary and we thought right. Not only is Graceland beautiful, but it holds an even deeper meaning. Both my husband and I grew up with Elvis in our lives. We became instant fans. My mother was one of Elvis's biggest fans and unfortunately never got to Graceland due to her untimely passing 4 years ago. My mother's birthday falls the day after our wedding anniversary. We never got the chance to celebrate these two special days together. By going to Graceland for our vow renewal and my mother's birthday, it was like she was there with us and getting to experience the place she would have loved to see... Graceland. Everyone involved with the ceremony was thoughtful, kind, and professional and helped to make it a perfect day; one which we will never forget.

Graceland Chapel CoupleJason and Kim Klaus
Our Graceland wedding experience began with Jason as my well experienced tour guide on my first trip through the mansion in December of 05, where he proposed on the front steps at the end of our tour with all of the Christmas lights in place. From there it only seemed natural to be married in the Chapel in the Woods. Planning our wedding from two states away was only possible with the help of Patty Bennett, our wonderful event planner. She was there to help us with our biggest decisions to the smallest details. On June 24, 2006, we brought 50 of our closest family and friends to share our special day. With our reception at the Chrome Grill, and our first dance to "Can't Help Falling in Love", our day was as close to perfect as you could get. Your wedding day is every girls dream, and our day was better than any dream I could have ever imagined!

After visiting Graceland from Australia two years before our wedding, we chose the Chapel in the Woods at Graceland because we believed it would be a beautiful and memorable place to be married. We also love gospel music and the Memphis area, so it seemed a natural place to bring it all together. As with most couples, we had high expectations of how our wedding day would be and it must be said that the team at EPE. The Chapel in the Woods exceeded those expectations, made even more remarkable by the fact it was organized from the other side of the world. From assisting with the usual flowers, cake, photographer, video and limo, to the more unusual request for a gospel choir, they were instrumental in making our wedding a day to remember. One of the highlights of the day was having our photos taken out front of Graceland Mansion. The Chapel is a truly wonderful place to get married in beautiful surroundings.

Graceland Chapel CoupleDanny and Lisa Rainwater
After visiting Graceland we were delighted to find that the Chapel in the Woods actually existed!   Shortly after our visit we had decided that the Chapel was the perfect location for our wedding with its beautiful surroundings and fairytale chapel.  You can’t get any more romantic than the Chapel in the Woods!  We enjoyed every precious moment on the grounds.  The experience with EPE was exceptional and the staff made the distance between us seem like we were right next door.  We were thrilled that everything was handled so easily and our wedding was flawless.  This truly was a dream come true.

“Everyone asked us why we chose Graceland's Chapel in the Woods or 'who was the big Elvis fan?' Everyone expected a Vegas-type wedding, but our guests who attended were very impressed at the elegance and taste the Chapel in the Woods provided us. The grounds and chapel are beautiful and how many people can say, 'We have wedding photos in front of Graceland.'”
