LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – In the Entertainment Capital of the World, where she worked to preserve her late father’s iconic legacy, the late Lisa Marie Presley was honored by tourists and fans.

A picture of the King of Rock with his young daughter was left outside the Graceland Wedding Chapel along with flowers and candles.

Brendan Paul, the proprietor and Elvis impersonator, stated that Lisa Marie Presley and Priscilla Presley authorized the wedding venue to remain an official chapel for the Presley estate. The estate has since granted similar licenses to a number of chapels.

When you looked at her, it was a constant reminder of the King. Lisa Marie was cherished by many,” Paul stated.

The Elvis Presley daughter spent some of her childhood at the International Hotel, where her father established the first-ever Las Vegas Residency from 1979 to 1976.

The doe-eyed daughter asked her father for permission to meet Michael Jackson of the Jackson 5, who was performing at the MGM Hotel while she was in town in 1975. In 1994, Jackson wed Presley, and the union lasted for two years.
