Every Southern Girls' Dream!
I was obsessed with the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel before I even went to see the venue in person. The 360-degree tour was a huge plus to get an initial idea of what the venue entailed. And guess what, it was even better in person! The venue has so much space and historic charm. Unlike a lot of the vendors in the Savannah area, the Chapel allows much more flexibility when it comes to catering and on-site items available for use. I cannot wait for our Sept. wedding next year!Sent on 07/29/2019

The most perfect venue
I’m absolutely in love with this venue. You get the best of both worlds with a rustic chapel and modern ballroom. Summer was so easy to work with and prompt with responding. She was also flexible with my rehearsal dinner and timing for getting ready. I truly had the most beautiful wedding and this venue is obviously a huge part to thank for that.Sent on 11/21/2019

From the very first email to the last communication, the staff was prompt, informed, professional, and pleasant. We had absolutely no issues and could not have asked for a better venue experience. The venue is stunning, and it is very convenient to have the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception areas all in one place. It is also great to have outdoor areas where guests can go to enjoy the nice weather. I worked mainly with Krystal, and she thoroughly answered every question I had leading up to the wedding day. She also made sure that every detail was taken care of to ensure that I could enjoy my day without any worries. I am not good at visualizing things; it's much easier for me to see things in person before I can make a decision. Krystal was very understanding of this and willingly met us at the chapel a few times to help me finalize my plans. She was also comforting and calm when the details started to become overwhelming. The only thing I would let other brides know is how the rehearsal can not be at the traditional time if a wedding is booked the day before yours. The rehearsal will have to be in the morning the day before. This did not pose any problems for me, but it might need to be taken into account if anyone in the bridal party will be traveling in. Overall, it was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend this venue to other brides.Sent on 05/23/2019

I love they Tybee Island Wedding Chapel. It has everything you need for a gorgeous wedding day. The owners are extraordinarily kind and lovely to work with. The vendors they work with are the absolute best in the business here in the Savannah/Tybee market.
Tybee Island Wedding Chapel is such a beautiful venue on the island. It is definitely the total package with a beautiful chapel that then leads your guests into a wonderful reception area! The staff is great to work with and they are always on top of everything. Such a wonderful Venue!!!
The Tybee Island Wedding Chapel is a truly beautiful venue. The chapel itself hearkens back to old country churches, but has a very modern elegant feel. And what's better is there are rooms on-location for the bridal party to get ready in! The reception room is just off the chapel, so there is no need to travel in between. Ray and Carla are just wonderful people who are kind, helpful, and communicative, and make sure everything on the wedding day is organized ahead of time for all the vendors, ensuring a smooth wedding day for all the families and couples who choose to be married at Tybee. What's more, is with the beautiful grounds around the chapel, and Tybee Island North Beach just down the road, couples have a ton of options for a variety of photos! Definitely a lovely location for any bride!
