HOLMDEL, N.J. - On November 16th, 15 years ago this month, love was very tender between Janice and Charlie Petretti. So much so that they knew it was now or never and were married with 'Elvis' officiating at the Graceland Chapel in Las Vegas.
Fast forward fifteen tender loving years later and, to the exact day, they retied the knot. The bride Janice Petretti said, "We knew we wanted to go away without the kids for a weekend to celebrate 15 years. We decided on Vegas since we hadn’t been there since 2003. Funny enough, both of us were planning on surprising each other with a vow renewal. Once we figured that out, we knew we had to do it with Elvis since we’d be in Vegas. I knew I wanted blue suede shoes and he had blue high tops to match."
The Graceland Chapel has been part of the Las Vega Strip for over 70 years and is one of the most prominent chapels for a wedding in Las Vegas. A Las Vegas wedding is one of the most appealing wedding ideas to celebrities too, according to their website http://gracelandchapel.com. The Graceland Chapel showcased the weddings of Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Ray Cyrus and now the return engagement of Janice and Charlie Petretti. They were all shook up by the excitement.
"It was fun walking around Vegas afterward with everyone congratulating us. Many thought we had just gotten married. We loved sharing the pictures with our friends and family. This was definitely not one of those times when “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” said Petretti. So, after fifteen years, this Holmdel couple went back to the location where they first told each other 'I want you, I need you, I love you'.
Viva Las Vegas.
