Going To The Chapel

The Candlelight Wedding Chapel, built in 1966, was one of only two freestanding wedding chapels left on the Las Vegas Strip when it was moved to the Clark County Museum in 2007. The other is the Little Church of the West, which the Candlelight closely resembles.

The Candlelight was originally called the All Religions Chapel, but then changed ownership and name a few years later. For more than 40 years, the Candlelight provided elegant and moderately priced weddings at its familiar location just north of the Riviera.

Bette Midler, Michael Caine, Barry White and Whoopi Goldberg were among the celebrities married there. On Nov. 14, the newly restored Candlelight Wedding Chapel will reopen with a free gala celebration at its new location at the Clark County Museum, 1830 S. Boulder Highway in Henderson. County Museum staff are seeking couples who were married at the Candlelight to help make the event even more memorable. For information call (702) 455-7955. Photo courtesy of Gordon Gust
