the wedding i dreamed of.
I was so thrilled to be married at the Knowles Memorial Chapel at Rollins College. Not only is it a venue that is very special to my family, but the aesthetic is exactly what I was looking for in a church wedding. Not much decor was needed, only little touches to make it feel a bit personal. Its close proximity to the Alfond Inn made it wonderful for guests who were staying at the nearby hotel.Sent on 07/08/2019

Perfect Place for a Catholic Wedding
The Knowles Chapel at Rollins College is the perfect spot for a Catholic wedding. It is one of the few places outside your Parish Church that is permitted. It is a gorgeous, old, historical church. The photos we took inside and outside of the church are absolutely stunning. The wedding planner provided by the college, Susan, has done this hundreds of times. Everything was perfectly organized. The organist and singer recommended by the college were also very experienced and talented. I wouldn't change a thing.Sent on 07/19/2019
