A Wedding Chapel for Your Special Day

  We are hoping that everyone is staying safe and practicing the social guidlines reccommended by our medical professionals.  Please call for information on availability for ceremonies being performed in the near future. We hope you will remain safe and in the best of health.

COVID-19 update:  April 1, 2022. We will be following the COVID-19 Safety Procedures for Businesses. Masks will still be mandatory and absolutely no one will be admitted entrance without a mask worn properly covering the nose and mouth.  The limit is TEN people per party, the bride, the groom plus TEN people. There will be no exeptions for any additional people permitted on the property. 

It is mandatory that each couple check in 30 minutes before their scheduled ceremony time, late fees will be added immediately. We will not be able to wait for any guests that are not here on time. Make sure to go thru our website if you are following a GPS, other sites will OFTEN take you to the wrong location even if you enter the address correctly. Go thru our website and follow the written directions for landmarks and mileage. 

We expect everyone to be considerate, polite and respectful during this time following these mandatory guidlines. It is imperative that these rules be followed no matter your personal beliefs. We will be strictly enforcing these government issued procedures, please understand this is the way we must operate our chapel for the immediate future due to the global pandemic.

 We are experiencing a lot of bookings that turn out to be No-Shows. Please be 100% sure of your plans before making a reservation. It is very difficult to operate efficiently when there are reservations on the schedule that are not kept. Please do not make us a "Plan B". Please do not hold a time slot while you're waiting to hear from another venue. Please do not make a booking before finalizing your plans. We take our bookings right up until the same day, so there is no reason to "hold" a place on our schedule that is not 100% definite. We understand that circumstances arise that are out of anyone's control making it impossible to keep an appointment, so if that is the case, please be courteous and call us to cancel.

If you are using a GPS for driving directions, please be aware that you are very likely to be directed to the wrong location.  If you are not familiar with how to get here, make sure you follow the WRITTEN directions we have provided, they will bring you directly to us. Advise everyone in your party.
