In 1876, BM Brown, one of Dunedin’s first homesteaders, donated land for the church to be built on. A man named John G. Andrews offered $200 to the construction costs, given it was named after his late son, William. The church was named Andrews Memorial Church. In 1888, the name was transferred to a new church nearby, which is the current wedding venue and one of the oldest churches in the area. By 1926, the title was changed to Andrews Memorial Chapel, and in 1974, it went under renovation. The church was also added to the National Register of Historic Places.

We happened upon this little chapel while visiting my husband's childhood home and just loved how intimate and romantic it looked. We called to see if they had an opening for a ceremony that upcoming weekend and sure enough we got a slot! Jessica was incredibly helpful via text, phone calls, and emails. She even set us up with a pastor and right after the ceremony she got us a reservation at Bon Appetit! She treated us like old friends and made the whole experience just so wonderful. Jessica went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of - she even took pictures for us! We asked a lot of her and she handled our crazy family and ALL the kids with ease. Pastor Heath was also very very personable and responded so quickly to Jessica and me. He was very kind and also made us feel very comfortable - he was also extremely directive which I found helpful as I was initially very nervous standing up there (he even held the rings for us).Sent on 03/21/2021
We appreciated the beautiful personalized decor and candles - it felt like we were in movie! We just absolutely loved everything they did for us.

I fell in love with this chapel online and when we went to see it in person it did not disappoint. The energy there is truly magical. It feels like home. Jessica was amazing in helping us with any and everything, accommodating our changing plans and always remaining upbeat and relaxed. I’m truly so glad we had to change our plans and have our reception on the lawn of the chapel because it was the most perfect and magical day. I wish we could do it over and over. Words simply cannot express the magic and pure love we experienced here on our wedding day (and anytime we visited prior to!) You will not regret choosing this venue for your ceremony or reception.Sent on 02/09/2021

Historic and Beautiful
This location is stunning! There is such history in every part of this chapel, and it makes for gorgeous photos. They have a variety of decorations that come with the chapel, or you can bring your own. Plus, you get Jessica as your wedding coordinator to take care of your rehearsal and keep everything on track on your wedding day, and she is phenomenal! Super friendly, very laid back, very creative, and makes an experience that everyone will remember. She is always easy to reach for any and all issues that may come up and you can tell she cares about people. Our wedding had to be rescheduled due to Covid, and she was so accommodating and kind through everything. I can’t thank you enough for everything she did to make our wedding day so special and memorable.Sent on 10/20/2020
