The Best Wedding Experience!
I had a lovely evening wedding at Thunderbird Chapel. The staff and wedding planners (Christy, Tammie and Cheryl among the few) are so accommodating and will do everything in their ability to make sure your wedding is perfect. You can bring in any outside vendor and alcohol, and they will set up decorations for you. The bridal and groom's rooms are an excellent space for getting ready, especially with a restroom attached to the bridal room. The Chapel itself is absolutely stunning! Hidden in the woods, this venue will provide you with a gorgeous atmosphere for your wedding either during the day or in the evening. My guests had no complaints and truly thought it was a beautiful ceremony and reception setup. Thunderbird Chapel will not disappoint!Sent on 11/27/2018

I can’t say enough about how much we loved our experience at Thunderbird Chapel. Tammy, Kristy and the rest of the staff were amazing to work with. I gave them a basic idea of how I wanted things set-up and decorated, and everything looked PERFECT! Once my husband and I were “locked away” in our bridal rooms the staff kept us updated on what was happening and made sure we didn’t see each other before the ceremony. I have an autistic son that is sensitive to loud sounds and large crowds. The whole staff was so kind and loving with him. They made sure he was taken care of while were we busy with our guests. During the reception when sounds were more than he could handle they took him to the bridal room to let him relax. They would go check on him throughout the reception to let me know how he was doing. As a parent of a special needs child they will never know how much that meant to us! I can’t recommend this beautiful venue and staff enough!Sent on 07/23/2019

Thunderbird made sure my wedding was perfect!! They also made sure that my husband and I got to eat and they made everything flow so smoothly! Also when my husband and I were ready to leave they saw it on our faces and helped us get out of there!! 100% you should have your wedding there!!!Sent on 04/11/2019
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.
Beautiful chapel! Great architectural design, beautiful arches! Great for wedding photos during any season of the year! - DJ Brandon Chow w/DJ Connection
