  • First off, I want to say that this chapel is absolutely beautiful. Everything about it, the inside and the outside. The size was perfect for our wedding (approximately 200 people) and the location couldn’t be beat. They also offered discounted parking near-by! Sadly, the staff was extremely passive aggressive which made for a less than desirable experience (thankfully on my actual wedding day I was paired with Jen P who was just a doll, so sweet and kind). I understand their frustration when situations don’t go as planned but when coordinating a group that large they have to expect that at least a few things will go awry. They charge a hefty fee in order to have your ceremony there (whereas most only ask that a donation be made to their organization) and because of this, I expected the service to be exceptional which was not the case. I would recommend the chapel itself because of it’s sheer beauty but because of the staff I could not give it a full 5 stars.
  • We attended a wedding here a couple weeks ago and the priest was so rude to the poor videographer trying to capture the ceremony. He was in no way in anybody's way and the priest literally told him to move his camera in the middle of the ceremony. The video person was in the middle aisle and behind most of the people. So in no way was he interfering with anyone. I could not believe it! No wonder why no-one wants to get married in a church anymore! Beautiful Church but the priest was mean!
