Covid-19 Updates
During these uncertain times, we are very excited we are able to hold weddings at our Chapel. Our Chapel visitors’ health and safety is always a priority. Accordingly, we are taking the following steps to assure all of our mandates are being met & our guests are safe:

  • The 6-foot distancing rule
  • Chair rows are spaced accordingly.
  • Non-immediate family members (or do not reside together) need to maintain 6-foot distance within their rows.
  • Do not be alarmed, our staff will be wearing masks & gloves when needed. Vendors will be doing the same.
  • “Self-Serve” food is not allowed at this time.
  • High touch surfaces will be sanitized.
  • People who are ill should not attend.
  • Please check with the Bride & Groom about video or live streaming options.
  • As much as we normally hug and shake hands with our wedding families, due to guidelines, our staff is not allowed to hug or shake hands at this time. This is a very difficult step for us. We are usually a very hug-loving group of folks!

    Excellent Venue - Very Easy to Work with (Even in a Pandemic!)

    We had a very traditional yet non-traditional service. We are a middle-aged bride and groom (first marriage for him, second marriage for her). We wanted a beautiful lakeside venue that was within driving distance for our friends and family. We wanted a fun ceremony but one that also included our children and truly celebrated our new family. Dooley's was the perfect fit.
    Wendie, Pat and Layne were EXTREMELY easy to work with. Even with the pandemic and subsequent lake flooding, they were responsive and kept things calm and organized. In the end, we had to pare down our wedding guest list and utilized the dock for a perfect lake wedding. We then utilized the chapel for a fun reception with dinner two months later (when restrictions were eased up).
    Even though wedding planning can be stressful, we are so happy that we chose Dooley's. From the first tour with Layne, to the wedding ceremony adapted for high lake levels, to the "familymoon" weekend following the ceremony with our new extended family, to the beautiful reception, everything was top-notch and just... easy. They took our ideas (dock wedding, pictures on the groom's motorcycle, BBQ catering, etc...) and made them even better.
    Would definitely recommend Dooley's for any sized wedding or reception! We also plan on going back in the future just to enjoy the resort and the lake!
