Facilities and Capacity
Nestled in a grove of towering redwood trees, the natural sanctuary made of Palos Verdes stone, redwood, and glass was designed by architect Lloyd Wright. The Chapel's organic architecture gives unique expression to the sanctuary as a sacred space that welcomes all wayfarers along life's path. With its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, the 3.5 acres of the Chapel grounds feature beautifully landscaped gardens, trees forming arbored walkways, a reflection pool with a memorial fountain, a colonnade, a rose garden with walkways of engraved pavers, a hillside stream, and a visitors center.
Holding your ceremony at the Chapel gives you the best of all things–it is a sacred space that offers a natural, beachy/coastal, and woodsy atmosphere in close proximity to Los Angeles, the Beach Cities, and Orange County.
