Get married here!
I originally wanted to get married in court or have a very small, brief ceremony, but now I am so glad my husband talked me out of it! The Chapel of Orange is such a beautiful, handsome venue, and we received compliment after compliment on it at our wedding. But really one of the best aspects of the chapel is the amazing owner and director, Cheryl Gale. My father, who likes things to be big and grandiose, was originally dismissive of our venue choice until he met Cheryl. You can tell she's truly passionate about what she does, and hearing about her undertaking to buy, renovate, and refurbish the chapel and dance hall, as well as coordinating the many details of all of these weddings is nothing short of remarkable. Above all, she wants to give you the wedding of your dreams.Sent on 01/07/2021
Cheryl and her staff were incredibly responsive and helpful. Cheryl promptly answered every small and silly question I had, be it through email, phone, text, or in person. She did everything she could to accommodate our every request; for instance, when I showed her pictures of decorations I liked, she tried to find similar decorations and even went so far as to buy napkins in a different color for us (even though she already has many options). You can tell she's always trying to improve the experience for her brides, as she recently renovated the bridal suite and installed misters in the garden area for couples getting married during the hotter months.
I love that we were able to select a wedding package and then add on/remove items, which made it so we got exactly what we wanted at a very, very reasonable price. We ended up going with the Ultimate Fairy tale wedding package, and it was such a good choice. Cheryl made everything so easy and set us up with an officiant, photographer, DJ, bakery, caterer, and florist. We had some difficulties with our first caterer, and when I told Cheryl about it, she set us up with an amazing new catering company within the hour! We received numerous compliments on the food on our wedding day - even my dad was extremely impressed.
Thanks to Cheryl and her staff, our wedding day went off without a hitch, and we were able to just relax and enjoy it. One of our guests, who is very stern and rarely talks, remarked that "this is exactly how a wedding should be." I couldn't agree more. Truly a phenomenal venue, owner, staff, and vendors. Thank you so much for giving us a wedding that was better than anything we had ever imagined.

Jason & Nancy's wedding ceremony in June 20, 2020
After months of searching for a place to hold our ceremony within our budget in L.A. county, we had to expand our search criteria in nearby counties. Luckily, looking at the site of Chapel of Orange, we fell in love with its adorable architectural design & garden. The venue director, Cheryl, was professional, one of the nicest people we’ve met, and she made sure everything was on queue for our wedding day! She made sure that our wedding was beautiful and that everything went smoothly. During the times of the coronavirus, they did take the temperature of the guests that came in the chapel and provide hand sanitizer, to adhere to the governor’s orders and to keep everyone safe. Our guests loved the church. Our photographer that was recommended by Cheryl was able to stream the wedding for those that couldn’t come physically. There are different packages that you can choose from, we chose the ceremony only package. This includes a one-hour rehearsal, 1-2 days prior to your wedding, a two-hour time frame at the venue (where the first hour is to have the bride & groom get ready and get their photos taken), licensed officiant, day-of-ceremony coordinator, and music on the chapel sound system. Of course, you can add more things with an additional cost that is, so we kept it simple and it was still beautiful. My husband and I added a nerdy touch to our wedding ceremony through our songs that we chose. The songs that we chose for them to be played for our wedding party was the Jurassic Park theme by the Piano guys, now the bride going down the aisle was A thousand year by the piano guys, and when the groom & bride exited we played the throne room and end title Star Wars by John Williams. We love to thank Cheryl for giving us the opportunity to have our wedding ceremony at the church during these uncertain times.Sent on 07/06/2020

Memorable Wedding Experience
The Chapel of Orange saved our wedding and made it more memorable than what I could have imagined. I was pleased with everything and how everything came out. It was a stress free experience. I wished we weren't going through a pandemic because I would have loved to have a bigger wedding, but it was still a wonderful wedding and I wouldn't change one thing. It was prefect and its all to the staff at Chapel of Orange. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day prefect and beautiful.Sent on 12/01/2020
