If you're a fan of Wayne Newton, we bring you good news! He lost control of his Casa de Shenandoah estate in 2012 after plans to turn the site near Sunset and Pecos Roads into a museum and tourist attraction commemorating his career fell apart amid legal and financial problems, but Vegas always finds a way.
The new owners, CSD LLC, are looking to put the 40-acre site (which includes 7 houses and stables) to use and on Wednesday will apply for permits to allow weddings and receptions at the property, now rebranded as Sunset Springs Ranch.
There are also still plans for Newton's mansion and estate to be converted into a Graceland style attraction celebrating his 50-years as an entertainer in Las Vegas and his collection of memorabilia and cars.
The home was put up for sale last year with an asking price of $70 million but hasn't sold. Their loss is the bride-to-be's gain.
