LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Wedding woes are spreading from across the valley to across the country after the closure and bankruptcy of Griffin Mansions.

News 3's Michelle Velez, who broke the story, continues to get calls every day from brides and grooms who were displaced by this shutdown, many of who had weddings planned in the next few weeks.

Coming up: Expanded reports on Wedding Woes tonight and Friday on News 3 at 5.
Griffin sold all-inclusive wedding packages at a mansion near Southern Highlands.

But it closed for good weeks ago and failed to notify couples who had already booked there and paid for it.

Even one of the mansion's vendors had to learn about Griffin's closure by word of mouth. Freed's Bakery, 9815 S. Eastern Ave., Las Vegas, provided cakes for Griffin couples. The owners tell us, like most of the brides and grooms, they have not been able to reach Griffin reps.

Another big complaint from couples is that many who did have a wedding recently still haven't received their professional photos.

The photographer, Andrew Estey, said his hands are tied because Griffin owns the rights to the pictures.

But on Wednesday night, one bride said to News 3 that Estey said he now has the rights and will send over her photos in the mail.

News 3 will contact him again today to see if that will be the case for all the others waiting for their pictures, including one groom who was married in May and is getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan.
