Villa Academy’s Chapel was constructed in the mid- 1920s and underwent extensive restoration in 1991. With high arched ceilings, large stained glass windows, and seating for approximately 200, the Chapel is a beautiful setting for a wedding.
Weddings at the Villa Academy Chapel are scheduled in 4 ½-hour time blocks. Generally, rehearsals are scheduled for one hour, one to two days prior to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, ceremonies will last up to one hour. This allows 2 ½ hours for photographs, florist setup, general preparations and clean up. The client is responsible for arranging the services of their own celebrant, musician(s), photographer and florist.

The Villa Chapel was the perfect place for us. I grew up Catholic and my husband grew up Methodist, and we wanted a ceremony that reflected some religious/spiritual aspects without adhering to either strictly Catholic or strictly Methodist traditions. The space is beautifully ornate as-is so we didn't even have any floral arrangements or other decorations. The staff is very helpful and friendly, and their experience helped our ceremony go smoothly. Definitely 5/5!Sent on 07/27/2011

We had our ceremony at the Villa Academy, and feel that we found a true diamond! This is a beautiful chapel, and the school grounds have many amazing photo locations. Our guests keep talking about the ceremony and what a beautiful place it is. Their coordinator was easy to work with and flexible, and was great day-of. There is plenty of parking in the back of the school, and we had about 170 guests and filled the chapel. We had an absolutely amazing experience, and would encourage you to consider this venue!Sent on 03/05/2018

I had some significant limitations (ie budget!) and was looking for something that would fit my husband and I as a super traditional East Coast meets casual West Coast. The Villa academy was perfect and I knew we were going to be able to save a lot on ceremony decor! Monica was really helpful and great on the day of, a little hard to get a hold of via email (better on the phone) beforehand. Everybody was really impressed, I was so pleased with how it turned out, and the pictures will look amazing!Sent on 10/14/2015
**If you have people who are heat intolerant, I might not plan a summer wedding here. Everybody was pretty hot without A/C during our August wedding. But it should be noted Seattle generally isn't prepared for the heat. Our rehearsal venue AND our reception venue were also in older buildings without adequate A/C.
I recommend the services of Villa Academy chapel to make your Wedding Day that very special day you always wanted,that will be remembered and cherished by you and all your guests for many years to come. ~~ Angela Neik, www.calligraphybyangela.com Dallas Calligrapher
