Facilities and Capacity
Graceland’s Chapel in the Woods offers a picture-postcard place for couples to say ‘I do’. Surrounded by tall trees, greenery, and cloaked in a relaxed ambiance, there is so much to admire here.
From the outside, the white-painted wooden chapel, with its tall porch area, promises a world of wonder inside - and it does not disappoint. Here, there is ample room for up to 75 guests to be seated as your beautiful ceremony takes place, doubtless after weeks and months of intricate planning. Complete with beautiful church-style pews, floor-to-ceiling windows that let in generous amounts of light, and exposed wooden beams, it exudes a great deal of wonderful charm. When decorated with flowers and populated by your close friends and family members, the place truly comes alive. You and your significant other can pop on your blue suede shoes as you declare your vows at the altar. Then, a fusion of rapturous applause and Elvis songs serenade you as you exit towards the reception.
Indeed, for the reception, some of Graceland’s event spaces can be rented out for the celebrations. The Graceland Guest House is just one of the many spaces that you can utilize as the revelries begin.
The chapel's patio area is also a wonderful space to utilize as it provides somewhere picturesque and private to preserve those special group and couple portraits.
So that the wedding party can prepare, get their makeup done, and arrange their attire for the special occasion, get-ready suites are available to make use of.
As part of the wedding package, the couple of honor can benefit from a number of convenient services. The chapel and the suites can be used for two hours, while a wedding coordinator can be on-hand to get your ceremony ready. Their expertise means less hassle, pressure, and stress for you on your big occasion. Of course, Graceland’s Chapel in the Woods also provides an officiant to oversee the ceremony, while those who were unable to attend can tune in to a live stream as you and your partner become newlyweds.
Graceland’s Chapel in the Woods’ staff can also help arrange photographers, videographers, florists, hair and makeup artists, and limousine services if you so desire. They are also able to coordinate with wedding cake specialists, invitations designers, and more so that the festivities turn out the way you want them to.

Betty Johnson helped so much in planning my wedding - especially with me planning from an out of town location in Maryland. My mom met with her in person in Dec 2011 which helped decide it was the perfect place for the wedding ceremony. After that time, Betty and I exchanged countless emails. Her response time was always quick and she was sure to let me know if she would be out of the office for any amount of time. She would always get the answers to questions I asked - from ordering a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting to measuring the height from floor to ceiling of the dias. When I arrived in Memphis, I spoke with Betty on the phone and she encouraged me to come by the chapel before the day of the ceremony to tour it. During this time, my vision for setting up my ceremony decorations (which I brought in myself) really came together. Betty was very flexible in what in-house arrangements she would move and in trying out playing the ceremony music from my phone. The day of the wedding went so smooth - it was absolutely perfect. My husband and I can't wait to get our photos from the photographer, Dana. The minister was a kind, southern gentleman and went through the ceremony beautifully. I highly recommend the Chapel in the Woods for a small, close-knit family and friends type of wedding. You will be impressed with it ALL - from Betty's assistance, the beauty of the chapel inside and the grounds, the delicious cake and punch, and the friendly photographer (not to mention the opportunity to take your picture with a small wedding party in front of Graceland)!Sent on 04/27/2012

Just think...for the rest of your life, you can tell people you were married at Elvis's house! We loved every minute, as did our 55 guests, and Betty was wonderful and easy to deal with. I especially recommend renting the Cadillac for leaving the Chapel...the car is awesome (with lots of celebrity signatures on the doors),and the guy who drives it is great and will take you on a great tour through Memphis. We love our pictures with this car!Sent on 02/20/2012

Everything was perfect. It was absolutely beautiful and Beth was such a great help on wedding day. It was nice having someone on staff to help the bride the day of.
The venue is small
But that is what we were looking for.
Only 4 stars on value bc guests had to pay $10 to park close to the venue 💔
I didn’t know this until I went to see the venue.
I think there is parking close to the venue outside of the chapel/hotel area but I didn’t have enough time to figure this out before hand, also bc we were from out of town.Sent on 10/11/2019
