Thousands of couples have stood before the natural beauty of the altar window to share their marital vows. Wedding pictures taken just outside the Chapel on the banks of the crystal clear Gore Creek capture the alpine beauty that surrounds them on their special day. Receptions at nearby hotels and restaurants that are just steps from our front door make this location attractive and convenient for guests. View some of our helpful links for planning your wedding.

You can check our on-line calendar for specific days before calling if that is more convenient. Guest clergy can officiate if they are sponsored through the resident clergy.

In the spirit of working within the context and natural beauty of our mountain chapels, these policies are offered based on extensive experience in hosting weddings. To make sure your wedding day goes as smoothly as possible with no conflicts, please read the following guidelines thoroughly. If you have any questions, please call your congregation member for clarification. Chapel Wedding Fees range from $800 to $1500, depending upon the time slot that you choose. The fee for the chapel allows for a one (1) hour rehearsal and a two (2) or three (3) hour wedding ceremony. Friday afternoon rehearsals must conclude by 5:50 pm to accommodate congregation services. Due to very limited parking all cars need to be removed from chapel property immediately after a wedding.
