May 1, 1967 - Elvis and Priscilla are married in a private ceremony amongst a small group of family and friends at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, just after 9:30 AM. A press conference and breakfast reception follow. The couple honeymoon for a few days in Palm Springs. Then on May 29, 1967, Elvis and Priscilla dress in their wedding clothes and have a second wedding reception in the trophy room at Graceland to accommodate family and friends who were not at the wedding.
We welcomed 4 new friends and 2 returning members last month, while sadly GAYLLYNNE lost her father, so MAY is a perfect month to strengthen our new and on-going Spark friendships:
While our circumstances may change, SparkPeople can help us learn more ways to support each other during our journeys.
