"We've got two kids and have been married for 23 years," says Gayle Borawski. She and her husband, Suave, both from Chicago, came to Las Vegas to renew their vows at the drive-thru window of The Little White Wedding Chapel on 11/11/11. "I didn't want to wait until 12/12/12," Borawski says, adding, "That number is too cold."

"They're pretty excited. All things considered, they're pretty happy, which is good because you don't get to see too many happy people these days," says John Hamelin of the newlyweds he drives around in this 1965 Cadillac Convertible. "The way things are, what do you have to smile for?" Hamelin says, "You've got to worry about losing your job if you haven't lost it already. I've been out of work for about three-and-a-half years." Hamelin was a long-haul trucker before losing his job. He just picked up the occasional job for the Little White Wedding Chapel and hopes he can drive for them a few times per week.
