The Thanksgiving season is celebrated by a very grateful Chapel of the Flowers staff in Las Vegas by giving $1,551 to John S. Park elementary school. 2017 included awards from the top wedding and travel sites, a new Facebook milestone, and a successful team walk that raised over $4,200 for Make-a-Wish.

Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas Gives Back to Local School & Make-a-Wish in 2017

We are famous around the world for our customer service and providing elegantly affordable weddings, but I’m also very honored to work with this team who is passionate about giving back to the local charities and schools.

This year kicked-off with an announcement from The Knot, America’s largest source for wedding news and inspiration, that Chapel of the Flowers won the 2017 “Best of Weddings” award. Soon after, the historic venue won the “Couple’s Choice Award 2017” from Wedding Wire, and this summer TripAdvisor announced that Chapel of the Flowers earned the “2017 Certificate of Excellence” for the third year in a row. This month, while the staff is feeling especially thankful for the incredible couples from the United States and around the world who chose to say “I do” at the venue in 2017, they learned of yet another accoloade from the community of Las Vegas: the silver prize in the “2017 Best of Las Vegas” in the “Best Place to Get Married” category.

The historic chapel in Las Vegas, celebrating love since 1960, also reached a social media milestone recently by hitting the 20,000 mark for followers on their Facebook page. Brides, grooms, friends and family actively share romantic and festive posts of ceremonies at Chapel of the Flowers, which has over 1,000 reviews on Facebook with an average rating of 4.7 out of 5.

The staff of nearly 100 employees is dedicated to making sure every ceremony is that of the couple’s dreams, and the team spirit is evident to anyone who attends a wedding or vow renewal at the elegant one-acre property. The staff is equally committed to the Las Vegas community, and you’ll find employees participating in events like Walk for Wishes, where Team Chapel of the Flowers raised over $4,200 for Make-a-Wish this past March. Halloween was a holiday the staff wanted to make extra-special for local children and their families, and together the talented employees created a Fall Festival on Halloween Eve, complete with carnival games, a haunted house, and a costume contest. In addition to a toy drive that gave radio station 98.5 KLUC a head-start for Christmas collections, Chapel of the Flowers sold tickets for the games and entrance to the haunted house, and raised a total of $1,551 for John S. Park Elementary, a school the Chapel has adopted. The funds will be used by the school to purchase much needed items for the students.

“We live in an incredibly strong community, and our staff is proud to call Las Vegas home,” said Donne Kerestic, CEO of Chapel of the Flowers. “We are famous around the world for our customer service and providing elegantly affordable weddings, but I’m also very honored to work with this team who is passionate about giving back to the local charities and schools. Their dedication is from the heart, and I’m personally grateful this Thanksgiving for being part of the Chapel of the Flowers family.”
