Lake Las Vegas Resort Builds Wedding Chapel on Pontevecchio-Themed Bridge

A Sophisticated Wedding Alternative to Open at Lake Las Vegas Resort in Fall 2005

HENDERSON, Nev., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ — Lake Las Vegas Resort today announced plans to open a wedding chapel at the resort, a move that will provide Las Vegas with an elegant wedding or renewal ceremony alternative. The chapel, which will be named Chapel Fiorenza, the “flowering chapel,” will be located on the Pontevecchio-themed bridge which spans the resort’s 320-acre lake.

Set to open in November 2005, Chapel Fiorenza will extend an old-world Italian tradition and feel to the Mediterranean-themed resort. Designed using authentic Italian decor, the chapel will feature rich wood beamed ceilings with hanging wrought iron chandeliers and sconces, rustic stone floors, arched windows and wooden pews that seat up to 225 guests.

“Weddings in Las Vegas are a billion dollar industry,” said Kathleen Harrison, partner, Chapel Fiorenza, “and over 170,000 marriage and renewal ceremonies happen in the city each year. There is a huge market for weddings, yet most locations in Vegas do not offer a traditional wedding experience. The addition of the chapel to Lake Las Vegas Resort will create an unparallel wedding experience — different from anywhere in Las Vegas and in the United States. It will offer the European-destination wedding for the couple who wants to be married in the states. We are delighted to bring this experience to our couples-to-be.”

Once in the chapel, guests will see the intricate architecture of the Pontevecchio-themed bridge as well as the quaint cobblestone streets of MonteLago Village. Perched to take full-advantage of the natural beauty of its surroundings, Chapel Fiorenza provides a beautiful setting for a romantic, intimate and elegant ceremony.

For seamless and stressless wedding planning, Chapel Fiorenza offers the services of a personal wedding coordinator, florist, photographer and videographer. A cappella singers, harpists and guitarists are also available to play through the ceremony and reception.

Chapel Fiorenza is currently scheduling weddings beginning in November and into 2006. For special occasions such as renewal of vows or commitment ceremonies, customized packages are also available. For more information, call 702-566-9797.
