Original Wedding Album For Sale

 
The original wedding album of Elvis and Priscilla is now up for sale on eBay. The album contains exclusive pictures from the wedding ceremony at the former Aladdin Hotel and was a gift from Col. Tom Parker to Vernon Presley who gave it to his son. All pictures are black and white. Elvis kept the album ever since the day he got it. From eBay (item: 110207627158) WHAT A FIND ! Up for sale is the ORIGINAL wedding album of Elvis & Priscilla Presley-Beaulieu. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1st 1967 at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. Colonel Parker directed the marriage, and had a personal photographer at hand. After the wedding, Parker presented the wedding album with over 20 exclusive pictures to Vernon, Elvis’s father who, in turn, handed it to Elvis, who kept it for the rest of his life. The personal wedding album remained in the Graceland Archives until American collector Jimmy Velvet purchased it, and included it in the Butterfield & Butterfield Elvis auction. The item is now the centrepiece of a private museum in Europe. The album with a white leather look cover comes with a Certificate of Authenticity by Jimmy Velvet.

The fact that this was given by the Colonel in 1968 i do believe it was the same year that he was seen giving Ice to the polar bears at the north pole, he was very generous person Mr 50 percent

i note that this from the Colonel to Vernon and Dee Presley usually when a wedding album is made there are 3 albums 1 to the bride and groom 2 to the brides parents, and 3 to the grooms parents, so the original and most important one is most likely in the hands of the Presleys. It may be called an original but it would be a waterd down version since the bride and groom have the large size album.

This is something that should never ever be on Ebay. It's truly disturbing EPE would allow this. That being said, I wish I could afford it. A truly magnificent piece.

why e.p.e. would sell it to anyone in the first place boggles the mind, my opinion is that ELVIS will truely be history in five yr's. the way the media and even the oldie's radio stations attack him in my part of the world, CANADA is sickening. and i totally agree with you ruthie.

I know for a fact that Graceland has one of these with "Mr. & Mrs. Elvis Presley" on the front where this one says "Mr. & Mrs. Vernon Presley", so this is NOT Elvis's wedding album, but rather Vernon's copy. Still a great piece, though.

Shame on Graceland! To have this album in the archives means it should have remained in the archives. I'll never understand why they would sell something so terribly personal to Elvis when it's his possessions they are supposed to be protecting. The more I learn about EPE, the less respect I have for them!

If Elvis kept it, how can it be on sale?
