    I have been wanting to get married here since I was a kid! (It was always my favorite school trip haha). The chapel is beautiful and needs next to no decorations (all we had was pew bows and it was amazing). I do recommend sound, we added it last minute and were happy we did since we nearly filled the church to capacity! Our contact for day of was Judy and she was amazing! she offered suggests and the wedding went perfectly!

    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.
