Wynn Resorts will spend $200 million to remodel rooms at Wynn Las Vegas, the company announced Monday.
A local couple has found a way to combine the magic of luck with the power of love. Rachel and Henry Sneed debuted the Lucky Little Wedding Chapel on Casino Center Boulevard in spring of 2015. Since then, they have joined thousands of couples in wedded bliss and expanded the business in innovative ways.
“We were surprised that no one had connected being lucky with being in love,” said Rachel Sneed, co-owner of the Lucky Little Wedding Chapel with husband, Henry. “Especially in Las Vegas, the wedding capital of the world, and the city of luck.”
The couple has played on the double entendre with its tagline, "We Got Lucky in Vegas."
“Couples get lucky marrying the love of their life, finding us to take care of their ceremony,” she said. “And then, well, you know, the honeymoon.”
The couple had worked together part-time in chapels in Las Vegas since transferring to the valley with their two young sons in 2007. Henry Sneed performed weddings and Rachel eventually joined him to perform ceremonies part time. They had dreamed of owning a small business together one day, but hadn’t found a calling to do so until tragedy struck extended family. The Sneeds, married 23 years, realized that taking a leap and diving into a dream to create joy-filled events for couples with full-service amenities was a worthwhile risk.
“Our passion is to see others experience the joy in marriage that we have,” she said. “Our advice is to follow your passion. Find that part of the marketplace that is missing, and jump in with both feet. You can do anything. We also have a third partner - God. And God is a fantastic business partner.”
Their passion for creating memorable moments have made Lucky Little Wedding Chapel one of the best in the Las Vegas valley. They quickly found an unserved niche in a highly competitive market and made that their target.
“Our focus has always been on our guests' satisfaction and we philosophically believe there's more than enough business,” she said. “So, we bless other chapels and sometimes recommend them to guests. Our continual focus is on delivering the very best guest services at a reasonable price. We call it ‘boujee on a budget.’
They offer a wide variety of packages, including the popular "Lucky In Love,” which includes florals, 20 digital photos, custom music and a wedding video among other amenities.
“We have excellent photography,” she said. “It gives a little bit of everything for a great price.”
An added extra that brides and grooms find comforting is the complete gown and tuxedo shop with a diverse variety of styles to choose from. The professional fitters can tailor any style to its most flattering, and often on the fly.
“We can fit someone immediately, and we often do, and within the hour have them married and on to the celebration,” Rachel Sneed said. “We also have two chapels to choose from. The chapels are available regardless of the selected package or guest count.”
The Sneeds have been lucky in love and business. They are working on expansion and some strategic partnerships with other companies and plan to release the details soon. They have changed the way they conduct ceremonies and fittings. The staff follows the recommended guidelines for Covid-19. And business is booming.
“We have face coverings, lots of hand sanitizer, cleaning protocols, etc.,” she said. “We want guests to enjoy their time with us and have confidence that we take their safety very seriously. We are actually experiencing a slightly busier summer than normal, which is a blessing. Many couples that are unable to marry in their home states are coming here, and we are welcoming them with open arms and ‘air’ high fives. We are always honored when someone chooses us for their special day.”
