It was the first marriage for both.

The couple was wed in a quiet ceremony in Prell's suite at the Aladdin at 9 a.m. The new Mrs. Presley is the daughter of an Air Force Col. and Mrs. Joseph Beaulieu of San Francisco.

The Memphis troubadour and his gray-eyed brunette bride-to-be landed at McCarran Airport early Monday morning, and drove with friends to county courthouse where they obtained their marriage license at 3:30 a.m.

Following the ceremony, attended by a few relatives and close friends, an elaborate banquet was held just below the hotel's casino. An estimated 100 guests dined on ham, eggs, Southern fried chicken, Oysters Rockefeller, roast suckling pig, poached and candied salmon, lobster, Eggs Minnette, and champagne. Among the Las Vegas notables attending the reception-banquet were Mr. and Mrs. Milton Prell, SUN Publisher and Mrs. Hank Greenspun and State Supreme Court Justice David Zenoff, who performed the eight-minute ceremony.

The bride and groom cut a six-tiered wedding cake. Presley wore a black brocade silk tuxedo and Western boots, while Priscilla wore a floor-length wedding gown of her own design: white silk chiffon, with beaded yoke, trimmed in seed pearls and topped with a three-foot tulle veil secured by a rhinestone crown.

At a short press conference following the banquet, Presley said he had met his bride six years ago in Germany when he was in the Army. The bride's mother, Mrs. Anne Beaulieu, said, 'They became very close friends at the time, but I don't think any of us had thought they'd get married'.

Priscilla stayed with Presley's father and stepmother at the family mansion, 'Graceland', when she graduated From a Memphis high school in 1963.

During the press conference, the bride's parents, her brother Don, 17, and her 13-year-old sister Michelle, sat with Elvis' parents, Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Presley.

Also on hand were Presley's close friends and business associates, Jay Esposito and Marty Lacker.

When a newsman commented, 'Snap him (Elvis) smiling. He doesn't smile much lately', Presley joked, 'How can you look happy when you're scared?' The Presley smile was very much in evidence when he laughed and yelled, 'Daddy, help!'

Presley's father, seated across the crowded room, said: 'Can't do it, son. You're on your own'.

Comedian Redd Foxx, also on hand for the festivities, said, 'It's the best thing that happened...to me'.

Presley said he and his bride would 'most likely live in Memphis', adding they intended to honeymoon in the United States and had 'given no thought to leaving the country'.

'Colonel Tom Parker (Presley's manager), and Prell have been friends for about 20 years', said a Aladdin spokesman. 'They're neighbors in Palm Springs'. Presley often stayed at the Sahara Hotel when Prell was its owner. The couple left for McCarrran Airport immediately after the press conference.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
