Chapel of the Flowers Celebration in Las Vegas

The party celebrated not only our newest renovations at Chapel of the Flowers, but also celebrated what we love about Las Vegas: the camaraderie with the local community of professionals who tirelessly serve locals and tourists 365 days a year

This past Tuesday evening at Chapel of the Flowers, one of the most popular destinations on the Las Vegas Strip, over 50 VIP guests toured the remodeled La Capella and Glass Gardens chapels. Hosts Donne and Cindy Kerestic welcomed local government officials, members of the media, dignitaries, concierges and fellow Vegas wedding vendors to a party that celebrated the Chapel's recent renovations, complete with catered appetizers and prizes, including a $1,000 voucher to be used at Chapel of the Flowers.

Guests had the opportunity to see two of the Chapel's newest venues where couples from around the world come to say "I do" and share photos and videos on TripAdvisor,, Facebook, Instagram and other popular websites. Concierges, city employees, vendors and others in the community who have helped ensure that Las Vegas maintain its status as the Wedding Capital of the World toured the La Capella and Glass Gardens chapels at the event Tuesday evening, March 28. Guests saw the transformed La Capella chapel, now a spectacular contemporary venue with an aisle of marble, an expansive ceiling with modern crystal chandeliers, chairs from the Chameleon Chair Collection®, and elegant wall sconces. The chapel, with seating for up to 80, rivals high-end boutique venues at five-star resorts in Vegas favored by celebrities, yet at a fraction of the cost.

Attendees included ABC News Digital Executive Producer Joyce Lupiani, members of the Southern Nevada Concierge Association (which include concierges at the Trump Hotel, Cosmopolitan and other resorts), EBG, Glam Squad, (Elvis) Joey Franklin, (Elvis) Roland August, and representatives from Il Fornaio, Canaletto and

The VIP event also included a look at the new Glass Gardens Chapel which opened for weddings, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies last month. One of the most talked about chapels in Las Vegas, the Glass Gardens features Pinterest-worthy details once found only at the most expensive hotels, with rustic "reclaimed wood" wall tiles, a magnificent ceiling painted like the sky and accented with thick wooden beams, and natural grain "X" back chairs with comfortable cushions, taking the place of pews. The 2017 Pantone color "greenery" is evident throughout the lobby and ceremony space, and design fans on the tour noted the venue's modern take on cobblestone with an aisle featuring vintage-looking subway tiles set in a herringbone pattern. One of the highlights of the tour of Glass Gardens was the chance to see the new advanced lighting system that is popular with brides and grooms who want to have a sunset wedding at anytime of the day.

"This event gave us the opportunity to thank the entire city of Las Vegas for their support of the wedding industry, and to show them how much Cindy and I, and our dedicated staff of 90 employees at Chapel of the Flowers, appreciate the community and our fellow wedding vendors." said Donne Kerestic, CEO at Chapel of the Flowers.
