I wanted a simple, private ceremony in Las Vegas that wasn't too kitschy, but also easy. We settled on La Bella Wedding Chapel and it's classic feel. The lady I talked with on the phone and via email was pleasant and easy to deal with. They called to confirm our time our flower colors and that our guests could take photos and video with our package and were pleasant when we arrived.
Since we wanted simple and we had 30 guests (didn't need a limo or a changing room or specialties in the ceremony like a unity candle), everything went smoothly. We had flowers, which were fresh and not wilted or dying. I stayed back at the door while my husband-to-be went up front with the minister. They told each of us what to expect, what to do, and then we started. We had our ceremony taped for our family (not webcam, but the DVD). The minister gave a lovely ceremony and we really enjoyed its personal nature as well his genuine demeanor. We did not feel rushed at all in the ceremony and thought it was just the right length for us. The minister did not rush us through everything and was always smiling and happy.
After the ceremony, we had pictures taken inside the chapel and outside, and received them on a photo cd, along with a copyright release for making prints, and our DVD and marriage certificate. We were back in our hotel 45 minutes later.
The staff was friendly and helpful. Everyone looked and smiled like they enjoyed their job. The photographer did a good job and the pictures turned out well. The video quality was great, the audio not so great, everyone could be heard.
Overall, I would highly recommend this place for those couples who want private ceremony. Thanks to the staff at La Bell Wedding Chapel my husband and I had a memorable wedding the way we liked it and were able to enjoy our weekend in Las Vegas without stress!
