Even as night fell, the pace of weddings held in Las Vegas today didn't let up. In the video below by msnbc.com's David Friedman, watch wave upon wave of wedding parties arrive and leave the Graceland Wedding Chapel as day turned to night using time lapse photography. The chapel, which opened in the 1950s, performed more than a hundred wedding ceremonies today.
For some couples, they considered the day lucky, or it held special meaning from their past. For others, getting married today was just plain practical. When Ryan and Christina Davis were asked why they chose 11/11/11 to get married, Christina replied, "So he wouldn't forget our anniversary."
