Schram Memorial Chapel was the perfect place for our wedding. The inside is absolutely beautiful and does not require a lot of decorations. The whole ceremony turned out absolutely beautiful - even the weather. My husband and I are so grateful we chose this beautiful place to hold our wedding ceremony.
You do have to make sure you have people to help you with decorations and set-ups etc as the Chapel is run by the Glenview Park District. Rowena was the chapel attendant who was there to help and get the microphones set up, but the rest is up to you. Thank you Rowena and everyone else who assisted in making our ceremony so memorable. Thank you for everything!

We just had our wedding here and it was a dream!! The chapel's exterior and interior makes for beautiful wedding photos and it a great "blank slate" if you want to decorate in a specific style! It was clean and bright and so perfect! The staff were great, very helpful and responsive to calls and emails. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend to anyone remotely near the Chicago area.

We had the picture perfect ceremony at Schram. Working with the staff was so easy, and the space is so beautiful you don't have to decorate if you don't want to. Everything went off without any problems, and we loved being there.

Beautiful, charming chapel. Feels like an old-time church -- stained glass, steeple -- but is now run by the Glenview Park District. So anyone can get married there. Has its own sound system. It has THE most dramatic groom's entrance possible. The back wall is part of a turntable. So, 2 strong people turn it -- the groom appears! The staff -- from Aaron on down -- are professional and courteous. I've done a ton of weddings there. Highly recommend.
This is a beautiful setting. It can be for a large group or for an intimate small family setting. The staff is courteous, prepared, and hands-on. They have an in-house sound system for your officiant and a set-up for an iPod to play through. Beautiful stained class windows, lovely summer flowers, and a clean and safe facility.
The Schram Chapel is a beautiful option for a ceremony site. Combining a ceremony there with a reception at the Grove is a great option.
