Sandy is the three-times-divorced owner of a Las Vegas wedding chapel. She has seen her fair share of unusual couples, but the matrimony business is about to get a whole lot weirder. There’s Bev and Stan, who are getting married by “The King” to exact revenge on their exes; Vanessa and Bryce, two aging, arrogant stars who are tying the knot as a publicity stunt, and are vexed that Elvis doesn't even recognize them; and Martin and Fiona, a gentle postal worker and a tough ex-con trying to exchange their vows before the police arrive. But the final wedding is the best and funniest of them all. Add them all up and you’ve comedy galore – and a touch of romance that’s sure to please.
