LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- A wedding business known as Griffin Mansions is filing for bankruptcy.
News 3 obtained documents confirming that Griffin Events has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.
Dozens of distraught valley couples have contacted News 3 about the scandal involving the business -- including couples from other states.
They had all booked weddings at Griffin Mansions, an all-inclusive spot near Southern Highlands.
A forced shut down threw a major wrench in their wedding plans. Many had given Griffin thousands of dollars for wedding costs.
It's not clear at this point whether the affected couples know that the venue is closed.
Griffin had been booking weddings all the way through 2014.
The mansion was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District for various violations on May 13 but failed to notify many couples until days before their wedding.
The affected brides and grooms tell us this created major drama during what was supposed to be a magical time.
Also, Griffin executives failed to submit all of the necessary documents to complete the bankruptcy filing.
They left out necessary details like who their creditors are and names of officers and directors.
They'll have to submit these documents in order to complete the process.
