Dixie Chick Natalie Maines Weds Adrian Pasdar in Early Morning Vegas Ceremony

June 26, 2000 – Dixie Chicks' lead singer Natalie Maines and beau Adrian Pasdar "tied-the-knot" early Saturday morning at 12:10 a.m. at the famous A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Following the group's sold-out show at the Vegas Thomas and Mack Arena, the couple (with only a photographer and security guard in attendance) immediately left the venue and went to the chapel located on the Vegas strip.

"Pastor Ann" married the couple in a simple $55 ceremony, the least expensive no-frills package offered, which included use of the chapel, candlelight service, traditional music, and the minister.

The bride wore a one-of-a-kind vintage gown of champagne color Austrian crystals, designed by Giorgio di Saint Angelo. The groom wore a steel gray Prada suit with a black ruffled Gucci shirt.

Following the ceremony, the happy couple purchased matching chapel T-shirts with purple hearts. They then joined fellow band members Martie Seidel and Emily Robison, along with the crew and usual "Fly" tour entourage, for an evening of gambling at Mandalay Bay before hitting the road for Salt Lake City at 2:15am. (Emily Erwin was up $335 and Martie Seidel won $210 and the newlyweds won $740.)

Maines and Pasdar met at the May 1999 wedding of band member Emily Erwin and singer/songwriter Charlie Robison. Pasdar is currently filming an upcoming NBC television series entitled "Mysterious Ways." No word on when the couple will take a honeymoon.

The Dixie Chicks are three weeks into their first headline tour which has seen sell-outs in every US market the tour has played including a recent Los Angeles date which sold out in an hour and a second LA date added which also sold out. Their debut album Wide Open Spaces is approaching 10 million in sales, and their follow-up Fly is closing in on six million.

A Little White Wedding Chapel located on the glittering Las Vegas Strip, is perhaps the most famous of the nearly 100 chapels specializing in one of Las Vegas' most enduring traditions, the quickie wedding. A Little White Wedding Chapel has hosted weddings since 1954, and numerous celebrities have said their vows there, including Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jordan, and Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. (Mickey Rooney liked the chapel so much that he was married there twice.)
