Sandy, the four time married 3 time divorced owner of a wedding chapel in Las Vegas, has seen her fair share of matrimony. In “Four Weddings and an Elvis,” we witness four of her most memorable: Bev and Stan who are getting married as revenge on their exes; Vanessa and Bryce, two arrogant, aging stars who are tying the knot as a publicity ploy; Martin and Fiona, a gentle postal worker and a tough ex-con who couldn’t be more in love; and the final wedding — Sandy’s fifth and final wedding to the love of her life.
