    Dream Day Wedding

    Thunderbird Chapel is a hidden gem. It is so beautiful! The manger, coordinator, and owners are all wonderful! I moved our wedding up due to an illness in my family and I couldn’t thank them all enough for what they did to make our day a beautiful dream! It’s one thing to have a beautiful wedding venue, but the people who helped were also a pleasure! They did all of the work behind the scenes to make our day perfect! I wouldn’t have had our wedding at any other place. The beauty of this wedding chapel will take your breath away. I highly recommend having your wedding here!!!

    Great Experience

    My wife and I couldn't have been more pleased with the experience we had at Thunderbird Chapel. The staff (especially Tammie) was amazing helping us with the little details and didn't overlook anything. Their recommendations for catering, the officiant and a DJ were also excellent. The venue itself was gorgeous and the perfect size for a ceremony/reception of around 130 people. It was one of the most affordable venues we looked at as well although that isn't the reason we chose it. Honestly I can't say enough about how great everything was, my wife and I wouldn't change a single thing. Would recommend to anyone in the Oklahoma area.

    Beautiful chapel and nice people!

    We got married on Oct 12th, middle between summer and autumn. The Chapel is incredibly beautiful and the team there is nice and helpful! The chapel is very good for photography during both day and night! At night, we light up all the candles and I love it! The people there helped a lot and organized everything well! I highly recommended this police.

As a photographer, this is my favorite location! The beautiful chapel with the gorgeous wood beams and windows that almost makes the outdoors feel like it's indoors is the best. Even at night the chapel will not let you down. The employees are by far the most helpful around. If you are looking for a great wedding venue pay them a visit.
