Las Vegas Wedding Chapel Says No To Gay Marriages

Amidst the fervor of emotions and activity regarding now-legal, same-sex marriages in Nevada, some are still holding on to their convictions.

One such person happens to own a wedding chapel in Las Vegas, renting tuxes and gowns and officiating Elvis-themed ceremonies for the last 30 years. During that time, same sex ceremonies were never performed, and owner Dolly Deleon says if she has her way, they never will.

Her own religious beliefs that marriage should be reserved between a man and a woman is why she says she will not perform ceremonies for same sex couples. Despite the money that could possibly be made from the new market available to wed, she's saying no.

Will she continue to fight her beliefs if it comes to a lawsuit?
