CUTE! ha. My first inclination would be “maybe” she’s preggo, but we already know that’s not true on the boards! I think it sounds awesome tho!

I personally love the idea!  Intimate weddings can be as elegant as you wanna go

Bella- I picked the Graceland partly as a joke, but then I liked the sign out front; I was thinking ‘pictures!’ 25 does not include crashers- we are not paying for dinner and thought that would deter folks. Not so much! We sent out 25 invites, but anyone who wants an excuse to go to Vegas mentions ‘swinging by’ for the ceremony! It’s all kind of nuts, but doesn’t affect MY budget (I just need a rough headcount for dinner), so it’s all good!

Congratulations, cheerful! My fiance and I are having a ceremony at sf city hall, too, and I have a technical question for you. How did you manage to secure the Rotunda officially when you made your ceremony appointment? I haven’t booked ours yet, as we’re not getting married until next March, and you can’t book anything until max 90 days before, as I’m sure you know.

Also, everywhere on the CH’s website it says that you CANNOT request the Rotunda, a couple will only end up with it if it’s available, otherwise you have to use their “chapel.” Did they tell you when you made your appointment if the Rotunda will officially be available for your time slot? I’ve been having visions of them not telling me if we can use it or not until we show up!
