What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…unless you are Kourtney Kardashian and you’re
get married there, in which case, that shit is going to haunt you forever. Just ask any number of celebrities who tied the knot in Sin City – and lived to regret it. (Or didn’t. A few are still together.)
The latest couple to get hitched in this impulsive person’s paradise are
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker. The pair, who have been engaged since last fall, left the 2022 Grammy Awards ceremony in Las Vegas, then stopped at One Love Wedding Chapel around 2 a.m. to say their vows in a quickie ceremony, complete with Elvis impersonator. (Kardashian later clarified in an Instagram post that she and her so-called hubby did not obtain a marriage license for the ceremony.)
These spontaneous nuptials inspired us to take a little stroll down memory lane to revisit other celebrity couples that said “I do” in Las Vegas. And then we ranked them because why not?
Here’s to love and commitment – no matter how fleeting!

1. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
A Vegas wedding seems like a no-brainer for these two rebels. Per Kourtney's Instagram, "Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect."
Aw. We hate to say it, but these two are too cute.
