The couple will be the first to be married in the new Graceland Chapel at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas as the winners of Todays Ultimate Elvis Wedding competition. The wedding will air live Thursday morning.Portland residents Kaycee Satava and Cameron Baker are the winners of the Ultimate Elvis Wedding contest, hosted by NBC's "Today” show, and the bride will be wearing a dress from Anna’s Bridal Boutique in Lake Oswego when she walks down the aisle.

Two weeks ago, "Today" asked any Elvis-obsessed engaged viewers to apply, according to Nora Shiels of Bridal Bliss and Anna’s Bridal Boutique. Satava and Baker applied and received a call from a show producer within hours.

The couple’s wedding will the first to take place in the new Graceland Chapel at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas, with Priscilla Presley standing in as matron of honor.

The couple and 12 guests will fly to Las Vegas for the wedding, which will air live on “Today” at 7 a.m. on Thursday morning. The couple will receive a wedding reception to follow at the Westgate Hotel — where Elvis performed more than 800 shows — as well as round-trip airfare for themselves and their guests, a suite at the Westgate for two nights, a private tour of the new Elvis exhibit and VIP tickets to the opening night show of “Elvis Experience.”

“Kaycee and Cameron met two years ago when his mom, who was her boss at Nordstrom, played matchmaker,” says Shiels. “They have a darling six-month-old baby girl named Lucy, who will be donning a white dress at the wedding. It will be the perfect complement to her mom’s embroidered ivory lace fit-and-flare gown with custom made lace sleeves, compliments of Anna’s Bridal Boutique. The groom will be wearing a suit courtesy of Nordstrom and the bride’s ring came from local jeweler Gilt.”

Savata’s love for Elvis began during her childhood. Medication she took for a health condition forced her to be immobile for long periods of time. Watching Elvis Presley movies helped the time go by, according to a publicist for NBC.
