If you're jonesing to get hitched in Las Vegas but The Little White Chapel is packed, there's always The Large Yellow Denny's Chapel. A Las Vegas Denny's restaurant opened a full-service wedding chapel inside its dining area this week.

Nancy Levandowski and Steven Keller from Ames, Iowa, were the first couple to take the plunge in syrup-soaked nuptials, reports The Las Vegas Sun. But will their Denny's marriage be legally valid?

Las Vegas Marriage License Requirements

Just imagine it: A forkful of your Grand Slam Breakfast in one hand and a marriage license in the other. And, according to UPI, you even get 20% off your food bill! But is a Denny's marriage legal?

For a Denny's wedding to be legal, a couple must obtain a valid marriage license by meeting certain requirements, which include:

  • Applying for the marriage license in person at the Clark County Marriage License Bureau;
  • Being a heterosexual couple (a biological male and a biological female) and be at least 18 years old;
  • Bringing valid identification;
  • Complying with citizenship requirements;
  • Providing your Social Security number; and
  • Paying a $60 fee.

Marriage Licenses in Nevada

Unlike some other states, there is no waiting period or blood testing required to get a Las Vegas marriage license. A Las Vegas marriage license is valid for a year, which means a wedding ceremony must be conducted in Las Vegas within one year of obtaining the license.

After you get your marriage license, you can get hitched at the Denny's Chapel without a hitch. For out-of-towners who want in on the Denny's Chapel, rest assured that your Nevada license will be recognized in other states.

Mazel tov to Nancy Levandowski and Steven Keller. May the two of you share many happy Early Bird Specials as you live happily ever after.
