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

Everything about our day was perfect and stress-free. Cheryl is a lovely lady who went above and beyond to ensure it was special. All our guests complimented the historic and gothic beauty of the chapel and grounds. We wouldn't have done anything different and are very grateful to Cheryl and each of the vendors with whom she works. Thank you!Sent on 01/25/2020

Our Perfect Wedding Day
We had our wedding at the Chapel of Orange in March, right before the pandemic shutdown. We were absolutely amazed by the professionalism and organization of the chapel’s staff. Cheryl and Berkenda were incredibly attentive and patient with every and any request we had made. Throughout the event, they made sure that we kept to our schedule and that we did not worry about a thing.
In the months preceding the wedding day, Berkenda and Cheryl walked us through every step of the planning process and were very helpful in answering all of our questions. The thought of planning a wedding is often daunting at the start, but doing the all-inclusive package at the Chapel made the planning process a fun and efficient experience. The Chapel has great relationships with vendors ranging from catering to DJ to photography to flowers and even cake, it takes the stress out of finding each individually and gave us more time to enjoy each step of the process.
One of the best things about our wedding day is that everything went perfectly; smooth and without hiccups or complication. It was so magical to see each piece come together in such harmony, it truly was such an incredible day and neither of us had any reason to worry or stress about any of the many arrangements and details, we simply enjoyed the moment. Our guests enjoyed the occasion too, all impressed with the venue and loving their experience. All of our guests raved that every part of the event was absolutely beautiful and elegant. The food, the decor, the flowers, the music - everything was perfect, and customized to our interests. We truly had our dream wedding and we could not have imagined a more magical day.Sent on 07/10/2020
