So romantic and beautiful even in the freezing cold wind and rain. Great value! Very helpful and nice staff. It's small, but we easily fit 60 people. Everything was perfect.Sent on 03/10/2014

We booked Chapel Dulcinea online without seeing the venue in person. We were looking for an inexpensive venue for a small wedding of around 22 people. I am so glad we chose Chapel Dulcinea! We fell in love with this place as soon as we stepped out of the car. The scenery is gorgeous and the chapel itself needs no decorations whatsoever. The staff was very friendly and made the entire process easy and smooth. My advice to any couple looking to book their wedding here would be to keep simple. Don't bring decorations and make sure you show up on time because you only get 90 minutes. We scheduled a 10:30 wedding and were lucky enough not to have a wedding scheduled before ours so we were able to get into the bride/groom rooms early. Ensure your hair and makeup is done beforehand so you can just get dressed at the chapel. They do have a pavilion available for a champagne toast or quick cake cutting, but I wouldn't plan on having a huge reception at the pavilion as there isn't enough time and you will have to have everything cleaned up before your time is up. We had more than enough time for pictures and a quick toast. I would also recommend using Peary photography. They have done several weddings at Chapel Dulcinea and know where to get the best pictures.Sent on 03/28/2019

Chapel Dulcinea is a gorgeous Chapel nestled in the Hill Country. I have married hundreds of couples at this location and each couple has commented on how it's more beautiful in person than it is on their website. The staff is professional, helpful and courteous and you can't find a better bang for your buck than Chapel Dulcinea!
What a beautiful venue and such a unique concept of a FREE venue! Such amazing history on-site and great staff!
Amazing venue with spectacular views. It was extremely romantic and as a photographer a dream place to shoot. Staff was courteous and helpful.
