    Magical Venue & Lovely Owners

    The Bell Tower Chapel was the perfect venue for us in every way. From our pre-pandemic plans to our downsized plans during the pandemic, Cristi was an absolute joy to work with—kind, flexible, professional, and authentic. The Chapel itself is positively stunning, and Cristi’s approach made us feel so welcome and connected on our wedding day. We loved it so much, we are hoping to have a bigger celebration there next year when larger groups are allowed. Highly recommend!

    The Bell Tower Chapel's reply:

    Thank you for your kindness! It was a joy to see so much laughter with so much unknown during this time. Talk to you soon!

    A cozy slice of small town magic.

    We got married here in May, and it was fantastic.

    The chapel has a good small town feel that hit right at home for me, and is something you really only see in movies and shows.
    Plus, the chapel has a working bell that we got to ring quite a few times right at the end of our ceremony. Super fun.

    The chapel is great if you want comfortable seating for about a 100-person ceremony inside.
    The outdoor area in the back is even bigger, and we honestly had to make a tough call if we wanted it outside because it is a great setup.
    We ended up using the outdoor area for the reception.

    Honestly, the best part of booking this place was the owner and caretaker, Cristi.
    Super attentive and helpful throughout the entire process.
    She answers questions quickly and honestly, and worked really hard to help us brainstorm ideas when plans looked like they were falling apart.
    If you are able to book her as an on-site coordinator, I think she's completely worth the money.

    Also, if you're planning on using the outdoor area and want to make sure you're prepped for rain.
    At the time of our wedding, we found that a 20'x80' tent fits pretty comfortably in the back area.
    I probably wouldn't go any further than 80', but it housed our 90-100 guests comfortably with a bar.

    5/5
    Would re-marry my wife here again.
    (I copy and pasted this from a review I wrote on google, and I stand by it.)

    Get married here you won’t regret it!

    Our wedding at Bell Tower Chapel was perfect! The chapel itself is so beautiful it needed hardly any decorations and was simply elegant! From the amazing windows, to the fact that you can hold the reception right there it is the PERFECT place for a small, intimate wedding. Also the owner is super nice and easy to work with. It literally could not have been any better!

This chapel is one of the sweetest venues around. Located in a quiet country town of Boring, I love it's old charm feel! Original pews, hardwood flooring, big windows for gorgeous light, and chandeliers, what's not to love. After you have tied the knot, you get to ring the bell!

Wedding Ceremonies YOUR Way Wedding Ceremonies YOUR Way Wedding Officiants

The Bell Tower Chapel is an historic chapel in Boring Oregon with whom I had been a Wedding DJ and Wedding Photography, but I have since retired. I also have been a Minister or Secular Officiant depending on my couples' needs. The Bell Tower Chapel and grounds are perfect for up to 125 people with many of what wedding ceremonies, reception and brides need on their day. Photographs with charm, indoors and outdoors with a classic country Americana feel. Patrick, the owner, is VERY flexible with bridal couples and their families needs in an affordable venue. The bridal bell in the steeple after the ceremony and its ringing by the couple is especially traditional; and memory making in the act and wedding images. Make sure you check Bell Tower Chapel out. It may be PERFECT for your wedding.

Lovely litle white venue located in small town Oregon but not far from downtown. Cute chapel feel with capacity for a great party indoors or out!
