I am sure you have seen these cute chapel weddings in Las Vegas or Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The weddings are very romantic, less stressful and much less expensive. My friend married his wife in Las Vegas and they have fond memories of their small chapel service. They didn't have to deal with all of the stress of a traditional and the wedding was all about them and their future.
We live in a different world than we used to. Less people get married, most would rather live together just in case things don't work out. The meaning of marriage has been lost in translation in our society. The traditional marriage is still sought by some, but many people would rather get hitched in a less traditional ceremony called a chapel bell wedding. I was married in a church around the same time my friend was married in a chapel in Las Vegas. Both of us are still happily married to our wives and consider our marriages a lifelong commitment.
