Celebrity Couples That Got Married In Las Vegas

What happens in Sin City definitely doesn't stay a secret for celebs. Though some high-profile stars choose to go bigger with ultra-luxurious weddings and exotic locations, plenty of familiar faces have preferred to keep things simpler, opting for low-key ceremonies in Las Vegas. While some of these unions (like Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos and Bette Midler and Martin von Haselberg) are still going strong, others like Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon simply weren't meant to last.

With plenty of stars still choosing to make it official at one of the city's many popular chapels, there's no telling which famous faces will choose the iconic setting for their marriage. While some of these couples went for the ever-popular Elvis impersonator to officiate their wedding, others like Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth tried to make sure their big day was truly unique. 

With so many celebrities taking the plunge and tying the knot in Sin City, you'll definitely be shocked by some of the lovebirds that wanted to have the King present when they said, "I do."

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker unofficially said I do in Sin City

Recently, Kourtney Kardashian and her beau Travis Barker made headlines after TMZ broke the news that the pair had gotten married in Las Vegas. According to the report, the Poosh founder and Barker headed to the One Love Wedding Chapel around 1:30 am after the drummer performed at the Grammys. Diving into the details, chapel owner Marty Frierson said that the couple requested the service and an Elvis Presley impersonator (via People). Frierson added that the whole ceremony was about 30 minutes. "They came, got married, tossed the bouquet in the driveway, and danced to Elvis."

However, shortly after the announcement, Kardashian revealed that the couple had not obtained a marriage license, meaning their Sin City wedding wasn't legally binding. In an Instagram post, the reality star captioned a series of images from their Las Vegas ceremony. "Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect." Similarly, in an update, TMZ clarified that though a source at the chapel had stated that they only perform ceremonies for those with marriage licenses, a separate insider close to the celebrity couple said that they did not have one when they went to the chapel.

Nicolas Cage had his second Vegas wedding with Riko Shibata

In 2021, People confirmed that Nicolas Cage and his then-girlfriend Riko Shibata had gotten married in Las Vegas at the Wynn Hotel. Described as a "very small and intimate wedding," Cage's statement to the outlet declared that the couple were delighted that they'd made it official. According to Cage's rep, the date of the ceremony, February 16th, holds a special significance for the "National Treasure" actor. "The date was chosen to honor the birthday of the groom's late father," the rep stated. The source also revealed that Shibata "wore a handmade Japanese Bridal Kimono from Kyoto that required three layers" and that Cage chose a Tom Ford tux for the big day.

Their vows included traditional Catholic declarations and Shinto vows, with Haiku and Walt Whiteman's poetry included in their pledges. Also, Nicolas Cage's wife Riko Shibata reportedly walked down the aisle to her favorite tune, "Winter Song" by Kiroro. The newlyweds, who initially met more than a year prior in Shiga, Japan, celebrated afterward with a small group that included Cage's ex-wife, Alice Kim, and their son. As noted by Vanity Fair, this was Cage's fifth marriage. It's also the second to take place in Las Vegas. As stated by USA Today, in 2019, the actor married Erika Koike in Sin City, but requested an annulment just days later. He claimed that he'd been too intoxicated to comprehend what he was doing at the time. Their divorce was approved shortly after.

David Harbour and Lily Allen got an Elvis impersonator to officiate

What happens in Sin City doesn't always stay in Las Vegas. In 2020, People reported that court records confirmed that David Harbour and Lily Allen had tied the knot in a low-key ceremony that was followed up with burgers from In-N-Out. Additionally, in a social media post from the "Stranger Things" star, it's shown that the couple's wedding took place at the infamous Graceland Chapel. Harbour's caption stated, "In a wedding officiated by the king himself, the people's princess wed her devoted, low born, but kind credit card holder in a beautiful ceremony lit by the ashen skies courtesy of a burning state miles away in the midst of a global pandemic." He added that the newlyweds had a small reception afterward.

Months after they'd made it official, Harbour gushed to People about his marriage to the singer. "I married a beautiful, incredible woman who I love," he stated. Additionally, the Daily Mail reiterated that during an appearance on the podcast "Sex, Lies, & DM Slides," Allen disclosed that her marriage to the actor was supposed to remain private. Allen stated that she and Harbour didn't tell anyone about their plans, but said that the affair was exposed because the Nevada Clark County tweeted out the pair's marriage certificate. Allen added that she'd never wanted to get married in Sin City, but due to the pandemic, it was one of the few options that were available at the time. 

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner said I do at Chapel L'Amour

In 2019, TMZ reported that Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner had tied the knot in Las Vegas at the Chapel L'Amour at the Little White Wedding Chapel. The Elvis impersonator who officiated the wedding stated that the chapel was booked for the event the week prior. Still, at the time, he hadn't realized that the marriage was for the singer and the "Game of Thrones" star. For the ceremony, Turner opted to wear a white blouse and slacks, and the couple exchanged ring pops in place of wedding bands. The newlyweds also posed on top of the Cadillac at the chapel as per tradition.

Additionally, it's noted that both Diplo and Khalid were in attendance, with the former streaming the ceremony on Instagram Live. Later, in an interview with Porter Magazine, Turner revealed that the couple had initially wanted to keep their marriage a secret and would have done so if it hadn't been for Diplo putting their vows on social media. "Marriage is a private thing between two people and I think that's how it should always be," she stated. "But it's tricky when people livestream it." Still, the actor isn't mad about how things turned out and said she found plenty of humor in the situation. Two years later, Turner even shared some images as a tribute to their special day, saying, "Happy 2 year Vegas Wedding anniversary to this big ol hunk of man meat."

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos eloped to Sin City

In 1996, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos decided to elope and got married in Las Vegas. As stated by Hello Magazine, their big day was actually a last-minute decision that started with Consuelos popping the question over a pizza and wine date night, ultimately leading to the pair choosing to elope. As for the big day, the magazine reiterated that Ripa had announced on her own show that she wore a $199.00 wedding dress for the Las Vegas ceremony. "I bought it at the Barney's Warehouse sale, it was $199 on final clearance sale." And according to Ripa, she still gets plenty of use out of the dress, frequently re-wearing it as a beach cover-up.

Similarly, the talk show host also opened up to Anna Faris during a two-part podcast interview, admitting that she didn't even have a ring until years after her spontaneous marriage. "It must have been making him feel a certain way that I didn't have a ring, so for our 10th anniversary we bought me a ring!" she stated. Additionally, in 2021, Ripa revealed in an Instagram post that back in 2009, she and Consuelos had grabbed their kids for a trip down memory lane, returning to the chapel where the couple initially said, "I do." In the photo, the pair is shown posing in front of Sin City's Chapel of The Bells. It definitely looks like a seriously nostalgic moment for the happy couple.

Pamela Anderson tied the knot with Rick Salomon at the Mirage Hotel

In 2007, Marie Claire reported that Pamela Anderson had gotten hitched to Rick Salomon in Sin City, squeezing the ceremony in between a break during her Las Vegas magic shows with magician Hans Klok. The pair made it official at the Mirage Hotel and reportedly had family members and guests like Tobey Maguire in attendance. After Anderson went back to work, she told the audience her big news stating, "I just got married ... I did," before adding, "I'm distracted. It's a big day. A big day at the office." Their marriage was later annulled in 2008.

Still, despite their split, the couple decided to give their relationship another shot and eventually tied the knot for the second time, officially confirming the marriage to E! News in 2014. "We're very happy," the star stated. "Our families are very happy and that's all that matters." However, despite the initial marital bliss, Anderson and Saloman parted ways once again, and their second separation was significantly more heated than their first. According to TMZ, Anderson sought and was ultimately granted a restraining order after the "Baywatch" star alleged that Salomon attempted to strangle and smother her during sex. That divorce was later finalized in April of 2015.

Britney Spears briefly made it official with Jason Alexander

In 2004, Britney Spears married her childhood friend Jason Alexander at the A Little White Wedding Chapel in Sin City. Ten years later, Rolling Stone recalled the events that started and ended the short-lived marriage. After ringing in 2004 and enjoying the days after partying and spending time with friends, Spears and Alexander made the sporadic decision to get married on January 3rd, renting a lime-green stretch limo and heading out. Around 5 a.m., the pair received their marriage license and tied the knot in a seven-minute ceremony. Chapel owner Charolette Richards recalled the event saying, "They weren't dressed in wedding attire, but it was very romantic and there was a feeling of love between them."

Still, after learning of the singer's actions, her team went to work and tried to get the marriage annulled as quickly as possible. Only 55 hours later, Spear's marriage to Alexander was over. In the official records, the reason listed for the dissolution stated that the star "lacked understanding of her actions to the extent that she was incapable of agreeing to the marriage." Later in an interview, Spears claimed that her actions were "me being silly, being rebellious." However, Alexander felt very differently about the situation, telling ABC News, "I was in love with her ... I feel like she felt the same way." Alexander similarly dismissed the reasoning for the annulment as absolutely ridiculous.

Bette Midler and Martin von Haselberg were wed at the Starlight Chapel

In 1984, Bette Midler and Martin von Haselberg decided to elope in Las Vegas. More recently, in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Midler revealed that there was no one else there except for the Elvis impersonator who officiated their ceremony because of their decision. Offering further details, Midler stated that their wedding was spontaneous. "I asked him," she announced before revealing that von Haselberg was more than ready to make it official.

"He got all dressed up in this suit that I was like, 'I'm not getting married to you in that suit!' So he had to change his suit and then we went to one of the little churches and we went to get the license." The Emmy winning star added that at the chapel, the couple walked down the aisle to Nino Rota music from "Juliet of the Spirits." At the time, the newlyweds didn't think there were any photographs capturing their special day. However, Midler stated that about five years prior to the interview, when the Starlight Chapel closed its doors for good, they sent the couple shots from their wedding. "We'd never seen the pictures!" she exclaimed to the host before an image of the happy couple's wedding appeared on the screen.

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore tied the knot at the Golden Nugget

As noted by Entertainment Tonight, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore have a lengthy relationship history that initially started in 1987 when they first met at the premiere of "Stakeout." In reiterating Moore's statements from her 2019 memoir "Inside Out," the outlet stated that Moore quickly found herself charmed by Willis.

The ceremony occurred in Las Vegas at Sin City's Golden Nugget casino, after Willis asked Moore to tie the knot during a weekend getaway. Additionally, Moore stated that she got pregnant with their daughter Rumer on their wedding night.

However, their vows in Las Vegas weren't the couple's only nuptials. The stars later had a larger and more extravagant ceremony that was paid for by TriStar. Their second wedding was officiated by the late Little Richard and had Annie Leibovitz as the wedding photographer. While the pair ultimately called it quits in 1998 and finalized their divorce in 2000, Moore and Willis stated they wanted to remain on good terms and focus on co-parenting. In recent years the couple has remained close as friends and even quarantined together with their children in 2020. Furthermore, as stated by the New York Times, Moore was the one who publicly announced the "Die Hard" actor's aphasia diagnosis and said his entire family (including herself) would be there to support him.

According to the Mirror, on December 21st, 1991, Hollywood couple Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford decided to take their relationship to the next level by jetting off to Las Vegas for an impromptu wedding at Sin City's Little Chapel of the West. While Gere and Crawford had initially met at a BBQ in 1988 and later became a couple, the article noted that the "Pretty Woman" actor had been reluctant to make things official, only agreeing to tie the knot after receiving an ultimatum from the supermodel. Gere stated, "I was a holdout at age 42, and this woman who I was crazy about and loved very much said, 'I can't wait. I gotta move on if it ain't happening.'"

The "Chicago" actor ultimately chose to follow Crawford's wishes. The pair had an untraditional ceremony that included her walking down the aisle in a navy-colored Armani suit and the couple exchanging makeshift rings made out of aluminum foil. The television personality was later quoted stating, "It wasn't the wedding I dreamed of. It was so last minute." Still, their romance ultimately wasn't meant to be, as the couple decided to part ways just four years after their spontaneous Sin City nuptials. After their divorce was finalized in 1995, Crawford revealed that the stars hadn't been able to spend enough time together due to their busy schedules. Both have since gone on to remarry.

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton got hitched in Vegas

Back in 2000, infamous couple Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton made headlines after it was revealed that they got married in Las Vegas. E News stated that the Sin City nuptials occurred on a Friday afternoon at the Little Church of the West, with the state's Clark County Marriage License Bureau confirming that pair had gotten a license, making their "I dos" as official as it gets. The chapel owner stated that the affair lasted approximately 20 minutes and was ultra-casual, with both the bride and groom wearing jeans for their vows. Their wedding was the fifth marriage for Thornton and the second for Jolie. The pair later divorced in 2003.

In 2015, the Daily Mail took a trip down memory lane and spoke with the person who officiated the ceremony, Reverend Jim Hamilton. While recalling the event, Rev. Hamilton stated that the wedding seemed like a spontaneous affair. "Personally I don't think they had really planned it out for long, I think it was a spur of the moment deal." He then stated that he immediately recognized Jolie when they walked in and soon after realized that her partner was Thornton. Rev. Hamilton added that both were very friendly. While Jolie went on to date and later marry Brad Pitt, the pair ultimately split, with their divorce finalized in 2019. As for Thornton, he is currently married to Connie Angland.

Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth live-streamed their Sin City wedding

As reported by TMZ, in 2016, Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth decided to marry in Sin City in a live-streamed ceremony that was as untraditional as it gets. The wedding occurred at Viva Las Vegas, a chapel known for having themed ceremonies like Elvis and Alice Cooper, gladiator, and gangster wedding packages. The site stated that LaBeouf and Goth went with an Elvis and Hawaiian theme for their big day.

After the affair went down, Vogue reported further unusual choices at the couple's wedding, including a hula dancer, a smoke machine and neon lights, and some very unconventional vows. For example, the King impersonator that officiated their wedding stated, "Do you both agree to adopt each other's hound dogs? To not wear your blue suede shoes in the rain? To always be each other's teddy bears and to give each other a hunk a hunk a burning love?"

Additionally, People noted that some were skeptical of the validity of the ceremony, wondering if the ordeal was simply another one of LaBeouf's performance pieces. Later, the Clark County Nevada's Twitter account confirmed that the couple's marriage wasn't legally binding. However, LaBeouf later stated on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that the pair were, in fact, married. While the actors later divorced in 2018, they reconnected once again in 2020. The couple has since seemingly welcomed their first child, although their reps haven't publicly confirmed the news.

Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow got married at the Sands Hotel

On July 19, 1966, Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow tied the knot in a fifteen-minute ceremony at The Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. As noted by InStyle, the pair initially met in 1964 on a film set when he was 49 years old and she was 19 years old. Their romance was said to have included private plane rides to take Farrow and her cat to visit Sinatra in Palm Springs, which Farrow herself described to Howard Stern in a 1997 interview. "He had a separate room for me. I was holding the cat and I said 'I better get a cat box,' because we'd flown all the way from L.A." She then said Sinatra kissed her before adding that "he was real romantic."

Still, 1966 was when their relationship turned into something more after Sinatra proposed to Farrow on the fourth of July weekend, giving her a stunning 9-carat diamond engagement ring which led to their Vegas marriage. Martha Stewart added that after their Sin City ceremony, the newlyweds had a small reception at Hollywood producer Bill Goetz's home, and then honeymooned in Palm Springs. In a 2013 interview between Farrow and VanitMartha Stewarty Fair, the write-up recalled the pair's romance and noted that despite Sinatra serving the actor with divorce papers just two years after their marriage, the former couple remained close after their separation. Additionally, Farrow confirmed that she considered Sinatra her greatest love.

Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman said yes at the Chapel of the Flowers

As noted by the venue, in 1998, Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman decided to elope, making their way to Sin City's Chapel of the Flowers to get hitched. According to US Weekly, their spontaneous marriage occurred after several months of dating and not long after Electra's mother died from a fatal brain tumor. Later, People reported that only two weeks after their Las Vegas wedding, Rodman attempted to get an annulment, stating that he couldn't comprehend his actions when the couple were wed. However, instead of separating, the pair reconciled and remained married until Electra later filed for divorce six months after the stars initially said, "I do."

Later, in 2014, US Weekly reported that the "Baywatch" star had plenty to say about her short-lived marriage to the Chicago Bulls player during an interview on Oprah Winfrey's "Where Are They Now?" Swearing that she'd seen a quality in Rodman that others couldn't, Electra stated that there was more to her ex-husband than his reputation. However, despite their good times, things between the pair weren't without fault. As Electra stated, "Our relationship was very passionate. When it was good, it was amazing, and when it was bad, it was the worst." Still, despite the outcome, Electra told the Los Angeles Times in 2020 that with regard to her relationship with Rodman, "I have no regrets at all."

The King himself married Priscilla Beaulieu at the Aladdin hotel

As recollected by Vogue, before Christmas in 1966, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley, proposed to his 21-year-old girlfriend Priscilla Beaulieu, presenting her with a three-and-a-half-carat diamond engagement ring. Just after midnight on May 1, 1967, the OG teen heartthrob and his fiance took off on a private jet to Las Vegas, while a second plane brought the rest of the wedding party. Once the couple arrived in Sin City, they entered the Aladdin Hotel through its rear entrance. Early that morning, after obtaining a marriage license, Nevada Supreme Court Judge David Zenoff officiated the ceremony in a suite decorated with plenty of flowers and candles.

For their wedding, Presley wore a tux made out of black paisley silk brocade and sported his signature hairdo, while his wife had on an off-the-rack lace sleeved white dress with pearl embellishments that she found in Westwood. Beaulieu accessorized her look with a three-foot tulle veil and a rhinestone tiara, matching Presley's style with jet-black hair worn in an eye-catching bouffant. The pair went to a press conference before joining their guests for champagne after the ceremony. As noted by Express, soon after their marriage, the couple had a daughter, Lisa Marie. However, Priscilla eventually grew tired of how her husband treated her, even stating that she was like Elvis' "living doll." As a result, she left the singer in 1972, and their divorce was finalized in 1973.
