He was one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, who made women scream and faint, no matter where he was in the world.
Many people thought Elvis Presley may never settle down, but when he finally fell for Priscilla Ann Beaulieu and proposed to her in December of 1966, it was clear The King 0f Rock and Roll had found his one, true queen. Here at LittleThings, we’re big fans of Elvis and love remembering how crazy the world went for the hip-swinging crooner who revolutionized the entertainment industry.
When you see clips like this one of women freaking out over Elvis during his performances, it’s clear that there will never be another singer with Elvis’ star power. Just like the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011, when Elvis and Priscilla tied the knot, the whole world was watching. Elvis and Priscilla were married at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas by Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker.
The King would often wear crazy costumes on stage, but for his own wedding, he opted for a classic black tuxedo, in which he looked as handsome as ever. And the couple’s first dance? Of course they had to pick one of Elvis’ biggest hits, “Love Me Tender.”
Check out the video below to see some rare footage from the Presleys’ big day. I guarantee it’ll make your heart melt to see how in love they were!
