Elvis and Priscilla Presley, May 1, 1967.
❝At the end of May we threw a big reception at Graceland for all of our friends and relatives —and some fans. Elvis and I wore our wedding clothes, greeted everyone, sipped champagne, and shared cake just as if the party were taking place after the wedding ceremony. It was so much more comfortable and relaxed than Las Vegas.❞ —Priscilla Presley
