We had our ceremony at the chapel, and it was the perfect place for us. They were able to meet with us quickly to show us the chapel, and the payment process was easy. There wasn't really a need to talk with them too much, but when I had more detailed questions closer to the date, the staff responded very quickly. Our day-of coordinator was very friendly and was even willing to stay a little longer during our rehearsal so that we could work all of our details in.

The historic nature and beautiful details of the chapel makes extra decoration really unnecessary, but we did spring for some lovely pew bows and an aisle runner through our florist. You cannot drop flower petals (real or fake), so be sure to have an alternative for your flower girl.

There is tons of parking, and the grounds are gorgeous. One of the best parts of the chapel is the location. We were in perfect walking distance to different photo locations along the Naperville riverwalk.

We weren't sure we were going to find the right place for our ceremony. We wanted a non-denominational place of worship that could seat at least 150 people. It could have not have worked out more perfectly that one of the few options in northern Illinois was in our home town! The Century Memorial Chapel is adorable, seats about 200 people, has plenty of free parking across the street and is on the gorgeous Napper Settlement grounds. Some people in my wedding party felt our coordinator was a little bossy but she definitely knew what she was doing and I was more than comfortable letting her take charge. Things could not have gone more smoothly and I think our guests were very impressed. If you are looking to have an non-denominational or inter-faith ceremony in a traditional church-like setting, this place is perfect.
