Maggie is a rare gem, and made our event so special! The chapel, and dressing quarters, speak for themselves...unique, eclectic, but also perfect for a traditional ceremony. Maggie has excellent decoration options and did a beautiful job of catering to our decor. preferences. There are also many photo opportunities near streets behind the church, which are a natural desert landscape.Sent on 04/15/2015

Cave Creek Chapel was the perfect venue for our small, summer wedding. The owner, Maggie, was wonderful to work with. Not only was she personable and timely in conversation and email responses, Maggie was very knowledgeable and incredibly helpful during the pre-wedding and day of preparation. She ensured that the chapel was set up beautifully to our specifications and helped with our music selection. The bridal and bachelor suites were also a nice touch, as these rooms allowed the bridal party to change and relax prior to the ceremony. The grounds and chapel provide a lovely venue for pictures and the evening view of the Arizona landscape from the chapel window is just amazing. Highly recommend this venue for small (intimate) wedding. Our special day was beautiful and completely flawless.Sent on 07/26/2019
