We pulled up to the chapel and took in our surroundings. On the outside, crunchy astro turf and a gazebo overlooking the highway. And on the inside, it was all about faux ivy and flower arrangements, low ceilings, and year-round tinsel. We loved it. A 70-year-old couple that met on match.com were on their way out as Mom and Dad went in.

|The gazebo of my wedding dreams|
My parents were renewing their vows after 29 years of marriage. The ceremony was Vegas-chic (oxymoron perhaps?). Elvis performed beautifully and our pastor acknowledged the love she saw that they had for each other. I felt she was genuinely touched by their love and commitment......until I saw her head pop out of a drive-thru window to wed a man in his 40's to a woman in her 80's. Did I just witness a crime? I choose to believe that they too have a strong love for each other and the Little White Wedding Chapel provides only classy, sober, well-intended marriages of love!
