Red Carpet Wedding: Priscilla and Elvis Presley

10:23:00 AM

Marrying Elvis Presley, famously nicknamed "The King of Rock 'n' Roll", just 23 days before celebrating her 22nd birthday, Priscilla Presley was even a younger bride than Jackie Kennedy at age 24 marrying John Kennedy. But unlike Jackie—who survived a murdered husband—Presley divorced hers in October 1973. And as a much younger junior than Jackie, she is still alive today, enjoying her occupation as a guest lecture in cities across the US.

She went through seven and half years of courtship, eight minutes of wedding ceremony at the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, and six and half years of marriage with the King. A total of fourteen famous years with the King has made her one of the most notable American brides this past century.
