Popping the Question Leads to a New Kind of Pop-Up

You came to Vegas to get married, but a drive-through wedding won’t do. No, not after those long hours spent pinning inspiration on Pinterest. You want a drive-up ceremony—in a stunning location at that—and Pop-Up Wedding Chapel is here to help.

Here’s how it works: Connect with owner Victoria Hogan via email or phone to select a destination—any spot within the valley or on the outskirts of town—and she’ll assist with the logistics. Hogan picks up newlyweds-to-be on the big day for a jaunt to the chosen locale (previous spots include a vintage Downtown auto shop and the Valley of Fire). Hitched to her ride is a decked-out teardrop trailer that Hogan refers to as her “mobile altar.” All wedding packages include floral arrangements designed by Hogan, who is a floral designer by trade, and are placed on the altar below a red neon sign that reads “sure,” adding that extra Vegas touch. Hogan then officiates a civil ceremony while brides and grooms (and any combination thereof) exchange vows. And, whether it’s in the middle of the desert or below the neon lights of Fremont East, if the union is performed under 15 minutes, there’s no need for a permit.

Hogan’s nontraditional nuptials are also available to those looking for that ultimate Vegas-elopement feeling. She can perform a wedding on only one hour’s notice. Because what better way to say “I do” in a hurry than with a pop-up wedding alongside a teardrop trailer? It gives new meaning to the term “getting hitched.”

Packages start at $350; 205.461.8018; florapop.com
