Vintage Photographs of Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s Wedding Ceremony in Las Vegas in 1967

On September 13, 1959, during Elvis Presley’s Army career, he met Priscilla, then only 14 years old, at a party at his rented home in Bad Nauheim, Germany. Thereafter, he and Priscilla were frequently together until his departure from West Germany in March 1960. After Elvis’ return to the US, the pair managed to stay in touch by phone. It was not until the summer of 1962 that Elvis and Priscilla saw each other again.

Elvis proposed to Priscilla shortly before Christmas in 1966. The couple married on May 1, 1967, at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. The wedding featured very few guests and was over in only eight minutes. It was followed by a quick press conference and a $10,000 breakfast reception, attended by friends, family, and business associates from MGM, RCA, and the William Morris Agency. Following the reception, Elvis and Priscilla boarded a private jet and enjoyed a short honeymoon in Palm Springs.
