    The perfect setting

    Captain Rick and his wonderful wife did so much more than just provide this perfect setting to marry the love of my life. They were so great in providing all the added and needed components. From tables and chairs to plates and glasses and even a set of cuff links when the groom had some issues minutes before the wedding. The setting was stunning but the owners are what truly made this day beautiful.

    From the moment I called for a tour Captain Rick has been nothing but amazing! He fit me in that day and answered all of my questions before I even had a chance to ask them. He knows all of the stories behind every piece inside the chapel because he built the place himself. He has wonderful ideas and genuinely cares that you have the best wedding possible. The location itself is absolutely beautiful! From the chandeliers hanging from the tree outside to the quirky bathroom with a wine cork wall (that again he built himself).

    I am amazed at the whole venue. It's absolutely gorgeous, owned by a sweet couple, and has such great value. It was well within my budget and came with so much more than I was anticipating. They have tables, chairs, table clothes, dishes, serving platters, the works! Besides all of that though, Rick and Denise are just the greatest couple. They are fully invested in every wedding that they have there and that is such a special part of the venue itself. So happy with my choice!

The Chapel at Caliber Oak is a hidden gem among Texas' wedding venues. Rick and Denise bring an elegance to the rustic mystique created at this quaint chapel in Salado. Service is always first and foremost, and is second only to the way they put their clients at ease. As a photographer who has captured many brides at The Chapel, I can say there are few picturesque venues that can match the power of Caliber Oak. The vintage cars. The outdoor chandeliers. The stained glass windows. One visit and you'll fall in love.
