Las Vegas wedding

A Hawaii couple were married on TNN's "Prime Time Country with Gary Chapman" television show filmed in Las Vegas, which is scheduled to air 6 p.m. tomorrow.

Joy Fontanilla and Richard Maldonado of Honolulu were married at the Las Vegas Hilton on the same stage where Elvis Presley once performed. The ceremony was performed by a female justice of the peace with the musical group Dixie Chicks and singer Jo Dee Messina serving as wedding attendants. Show host Gary Chapman served as best man.

The bride and groom wore matching red-and-white aloha wear. At the end of the ceremony the couple made the shaka sign to an audience of several hundred people.
