For years Elvis Presley and Priscilla seemed content not to marry. Then, in what seemed a totally overnight decision, they were married on May 1, 1967, in a double ring ceremony at the Las Vegas Aladdin Hotel. Priscilla wore a gown of white organza trimmed in seed pearls with lace sleeves and a full train. A three-quarter length tulle veil was held by a crown of rhinestones. Her wedding-engagement ring was a three-carat diamond surrounded by 20 smaller diamonds.

The love shared between the King and his Queen is unquestionable. The ex-wife and only marriage partner Elvis ever had was with her husband for many years. She celebrated his ups and stuck by him through his downs even after the marriage collapsed.
The birth of Lisa Marie Presley on February 1, 1968, in Memphis, was a blessing. Not only did it provide the Presleys with a much wanted child, but the baby gave Priscilla a new outlet for her energies, a love with whom she could spend her days. “Elvis and I were ecstatic over the birth of our daughter. If the baby had been a boy, we were going to name him John Barron. I liked the name Barron. It has a very strong feeling to it. But when it was a girl, we decided on Lisa Marie – for no special reason, only because it is a very feminine name.”
Lisa is a combination of both her parents. “She definitely has her father’s eyes,” said Priscilla, “but she has my features and petiteness.”
The two share their child, Lisa Marie Presley, which kept their communication open and friendly relationship alive until Elvis’ untimely death. However, following the birth of their daughter, the legendary couple divorced.
