History
The Little Chapel in the Woods was dedicated by former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt shortly after holding their first wedding ceremony. It was designed by architect O’Neil Ford, and built as a project for the National Youth Administration during the depression.

Its symbolism portrays “Women Ministering to Human Needs” on saw-pierced and riveted brass lighting and beech woodwork.

    Perfect For Our Micro Wedding

    We are so happy to have had our tiny wedding at the Little Chapel in the Woods! It was perfect for the intimate feeling we were hoping for. The Little Chapel is an incredible value. The location and surrounding areas are beautiful and it makes for beautiful photos. Marianna, the attendant/coordinator is so detail oriented and helpful. She was phenomenal and I’m grateful to have had her assistance on our day. We opted for the livestream package and we heard from our guests that the video was clear and easy to hear. Overall, we’re beyond thrilled and would highly recommend.

    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.
