It looks like it’s the end of an era in Nevada. The very last drive through wedding chapel is closing it’s window and will give it’s final wedding blessings.
George Flint opened The Chapel of Bells in Reno, Nevada in 1962. His daughter Margaret has been running the chapel and says due to lack of interest and customers, they have to close.
“I don’t think there’s a novelty for the stereotypical chapel wedding anymore,” Margaret Flint said. “My niece told me people are afraid to look tacky, so I guess that means we’re tacky now.”
The wedding industry in western Nevada has tanked over the past few decades. It peaked in 1978 with Washoe County issuing more than 36,000 marriage licenses. Last year, the county issued fewer than 8,000. Source
