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.Sent on 11/11/2019

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.Sent on 12/19/2019

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

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
