Perfect spot for intimate wedding in DFW!
The Little Chapel in-the-Woods is the perfect location for an intimate, romantic wedding ceremony. The staff was wonderful to work with and were very responsive and attentive to all our requests and needs. When COVID hit, they allowed us to reschedule our wedding with great flexibility and at no additional charge to us. Our experience with the chapel and all who work for it at TWU has been nothing short of wonderful.Sent on 01/07/2021
