Graceland Announces All-New Wedding Venue

Day of Love on August 13 Marking Graceland’s 2000th Ceremony  

Elvis Presley’s Graceland announces a brand-new Chapel in the Woods. The newly constructed chapel will feature a grand ceiling and windows throughout to allow the beautiful surroundings of the Graceland woods to be the back drop for couples to be married or renew their vows. Located just steps from the newly constructed AAA rated Four Diamond luxury resort, The Guest House at Graceland, the Chapel in the Woods makes for the most iconic and memorable wedding destination. To christen this new chapel, Graceland is hosting a day of love, featuring couples whose love were inspired by Elvis, whether on a visit to Graceland or during Elvis Week. The Chapel in the Woods will be hosting one special wedding and an amazing ten  vow renewals on August 13, 2018.  

For the last 18 years, nestled in the woods beside Elvis Presley’s Graceland, stood the original Chapel in the Woods. The quaint wedding venue, located on the iconic property of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, has been host to almost 2,000 weddings, dedications, and vow renewals. The all-new chapel features modern design and architecture by HBG Design, who previously collaborated on the design of The Guest House at Graceland. Maintaining the intimate feel, 75 guests can be hosted at this charming new location. 

The Chapel in the Woods is officially accepting reservations for ceremonies as early as August 14, 2018. During Elvis Week 2018, fans and friends are invited to an open house at the new chapel from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm on August 16, 2018, when celebratory wedding cake will be served. The new chapel is located adjacent to The Guest House at Graceland. Parking is permitted at The Guest House for a fee. 

Marking the 2,000th wedding at Graceland, the first wedding in the new chapel will be between Julie and Marc, who met three years ago at Elvis Week 2015. After running into each other in the lobby of their hotel, Marc, a native Memphian who was visiting his hometown on business, offered first-time Elvis Week attendee, Julie, a tour of the iconic Elvis Presley historic locations downtown. From then on, they were inseparable. Julie explains of their immediate connection, “That is the power of Elvis, of Elvis Week. This profound love for Elvis brings people together, even if for one small moment, one sacred Candlelight Vigil, or for a lifetime, like with Marc and me. We can’t imagine our life without this Elvis connection.” 

To continue the day of love, Graceland is asking for couples who met at Graceland or Elvis Week and would like to take part in a group vow renewal on August 13, 2018. Ten couples will be chosen for this complimentary group ceremony. Couples should submit their Elvis-inspired love story by July 27, 2018 to be considered. These couples will be the first in the new chapel, marking their place in Graceland history! 


To submit a love story, email love@graceland.com with an image and name of the couple, the story of how the couple met at Graceland or during Elvis Week, and when they will be arriving to Elvis Week 2018. All couples submitting a love story must already be coming to Elvis Week 2018 and available the afternoon of August 13,2018.
