Unique, Beautiful and Perfect Chapel for a Wedding to Remember
This is a European style Chapel in Kenmore that is perfect for anyone's wedding day including mine! I dreamed of having a church wedding but this chapel was beyond my dreams! Thank you to the wonderful staff there to make my ceremony go on without a problem. The AV equipment, such as the microphones and music player were wonderful have at no extra charge. Free parking for my guests was so nice to not have added charges for them. Again thank you for making my wedding ceremony the thing of dreams!

Bastyr University is a spectacularly great venue. The chapel has superb acoustics. You won't find anything quite like this in the Puget Sound region. I highly recommend.
