Las Vegas Couple Marries Next to Carnival Airship

Amanda Robertson and Jason Gerken tied the knot in Las Vegas next to Carnival Cruise Line’s #ChooseFun AirShip. The 128-foot-long blimp is currently visiting the Southwest as an extension of its West Coast tour to promote the Carnival Panorama, the cruise line’s first new ship to homeport in California in decades.

With close family and friends in attendance, Las Vegas’ own Henry Sneed of Lucky Little Wedding Chapel officiated the ceremony with an appearance by an Elvis Presley impersonator. Carnival surprised the couple with a free honeymoon cruise aboard the Carnival Panorama when it debuts from Long Beach this December.

After completing its month-long tour of California in January, Carnival’s AirShip moved on to Las Vegas this past weekend. Leaving the city Saturday, the blimp will arrive in Phoenix Wednesday, February 13 for a five-day flyover, touring the city’s popular areas and venues.
