LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas chapels of love that use Elvis Presley’s likeness could find themselves becoming Heartbreak Hotels.

The licensing company that controls the name and image of Elvis is ordering some Sin City chapel operators to stop using Elvis in themed wedding ceremonies. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Authentic Brands Group sent cease-and-desist letters in early May to multiple chapels. Wedding operators are expected to be compliant by now. With Elvis closely tied to the Las Vegas wedding industry, some chapel owners say the move could decimate their businesses.

The company said in a statement Wednesday that it wants to partner with chapels, not shut them down.
