About Salem Chapel and Event Venue

Salem Chapel and Event Venue is a traditional wedding chapel and reception venue in Rice, Virginia. Owned by Caryn Kayton, this stunning historic venue represents the history of Virginia and the love celebrated here for over a century. The Salem Church was first built in 1884, given its name after the Hebew word “Shalom,” which translates to “peace.” Caryn purchased the building several years ago, and has since renovated it to preserve its historical significance while providing modern amenities for weddings. Salem Chapel and Event Venue features a chapel, cocktail space, and full reception venue to host a traditional wedding with modern reception site. If you want a truly historical and uniquely modern wedding venue, choose Salem Chapel.

Facilities and Capacity

Salem Chapel and Event Venue provides seating space in their chapel and reception venue for up to 125 guests. It has been renovated and expanded to offer space for both the ceremony and reception for your convenience. The chapel includes modern technology and amenities but kept the historic stain glass lancet windows for an authentic church setting. The high ceilings and beautiful new pews provide elegance and reverence for your ceremony. The chapel also provides a small cocktail reception space and a get-ready room for half of the wedding party. An additional reception space has been added to provide more room for your post-ceremony meal and entertainment. It even has ample space for a dance floor. Below the chapel, the basement offers an additional get-ready room and catering prep kitchen. Both the reception and ceremony space can be customized with your decor items for a unique ambiance.

    Great Experience

    We had to switch venues due to COVID and I will say that it was the best decision we could've made. They were extremely helpful and made sure our day was special. I would recommend this venue to anyone.
