A Wedding That Looked Like a Million Bucks!
Just had our wedding there last week! We booked the Old Town Chapel back in August and immediately John was very responsive and accommodating. They were flexible when we told them how we wanted a modest wedding with a limited number of guests and a small wedding party and they gave us a quote that suited our budget. Brandi was always accessible and ready to take any questions that we had. For the rehearsal night and the day-of, the staff here made sure we were taken care of and that everything in the chapel was picture perfect! When I said how much I loved the acoustics of the chapel itself, and that I had dreamed of having real choral music in my wedding ceremony, they used the existing choir loft where we put my choir of twenty! It was the most exquisite way to set the tone for a beautiful ceremony, and it was a personal and unique touch for me. All my guests admired both the inside and outside of the entire building. The large antique windows in the back of the chapel provide warm, gorgeous lighting for an afternoon wedding. The old bell tower provides both a great photo backdrop from inside or outside as well as a fun activity for us to do immediately at the end of the ceremony. They have many fun and interesting pieces all throughout the bridal suite, and it was fun to explore the decor of the place! Overall, my wedding day was exactly what we wanted and I will definitely be recommending this place for other events.Sent on 02/18/2020
