The Memorial Chapel staff was amazing to work with and I would highly recommend having your ceremony there. The Chapel is beautiful and I loved every part of my ceremony. I have no complaints. If you plan on getting married in peak season, book early to make sure you get the day/time you want. Perfect venue for Terps and other happy couples :)
My husband and I recently held our wedding at the UMD Chapel and were extremely pleased and delighted with the entire process of working with the team. We cannot say enough good things about Mel Coles! She kept us calm, answered any questions we had quickly and professionally, and did anything she could to accommodate any request we had. I would recommend the chapel over and over again! My experience here was one of the highlights of my planning. We can't thank you enough!
My husband and I (both graduates of UMD College Park) recently held our wedding ceremony at the UMD Memorial Chapel and were extremely pleased with the ease of reserving the facility, the information provided, and the support we received from the staff. Mel Coles made sure that everything was taken care of, provided recommendations on how to best decorate and plan the ceremony, and assisted with everything on the day of our ceremony. We were pleasantly surprised with all of the help we received leading up to our big day as well as the day of our wedding. She was amazing to work with! The Chapel provided her services and the services of an assistant (Olivia) and everything went very smoothly! Especially considering we didn’t reserve the Chapel until 2 months before our wedding. Even so, I didn’t feel rushed or stressed at all because Mel was on top of everything. We would definitely, without hesitation, recommend this beautiful venue and their dedicated staff for weddings.
Mel and Olivia were very helpful with the Harrison/Williams wedding, down to the tiniest detail. If would definitely recommend others to host their wedding at the Memorial Chapel.
We could not have selected a more perfect venue for our ceremony. The Chapel was important to us as I am an alum of UMD. More specifically, Mel Coles (Event Coordinator) was amazing. She was so attentive to our needs and extremely flexible. Mel was quick to answer e-mails, phone calls, and complete follow-up items. In the weeks leading up to the ceremony, she made sure that every detail was ironed out and settled our nerves during the rehearsal and even on the day-of. Mel is a natural and will definitely be an awesome wedding planner in the future :) I recommend the care of UMD Chapel to handle all of your ceremony needs with efficiency and class!
Alonn and I had a great experience at UMDs Memorial Chapel! Mel and staff members were very accommodating and gracious with us during our planning process! Our wedding day was very memorable and we could not have asked for more! Needless to say, we had a beautiful experience inside such a beautiful chapel, as well as outside taking amazing photos in the garden. We highly recommend University of Maryland's Memorial Chapel for your special wedding day!;)
The memorial chapel was amazing. They were so flexible, kind and so excited to have us. We were working around a scaffolding issue that happens once every 10 years (I know, just our luck) but they were very courteous and professional about it and offered us discounts for the inconvenience. We did a first look in the chapel gardens and they turned out amazing. My wedding literally looked like a fairytale because the chapel gardens looked so pretty and lush. They have excellent landscaping and the willow tree was perfect.
we just want to send our appreciation and thanks to you and your staff everything was amazing! thank you so much,
Michael and Tanya Christie
Everything was perfect! We are very happy to have chosen the Garden Chapel at UMD. Beautiful!
The staff at the Memorial Chapel UMD were truly the best! Mel was very helpful, answered all our questions and assisted as necessary.
We had a great experience working with Memorial Chapel!! The staff ,especially Mel was really nice and answered emails quickly. Since we were both Alumni, getting married at the Chapel was our first choice! The chapel is big and the inside is very pretty. We decorated the altar with flowers and some tulle, but minimal decoration is needed because it looks great plain. I had no complaints working with the chapel, we had our reception in the Alumni center on campus as well, so it was great to have the ceremony and reception very close to each other. Also parking was not an issue, we put a few signs to point guests, but parking is free the day of! I would definitely recommend getting married here!!
Mel Coles was absolutely fabulous to work with. She made herself very available and was responsive to every question and concern that I had. My dream was always to get married at the UMD Chapel ever since I went to school there in college. Not only did my dream become a reality, it exceeded every expectation I could have had for the intimate, quiet, and calm wedding day I desired. Thanks to the UMD Chapel and Mel, specifically. I'll never forget your impact on my special day!
Mel was great to work with. She was very professional and responsive. The other venue staff were also very accommodating!
This venue is absolutely GORGEOUS! I am working with Mel and she is a doll! I have has had the opportunity to meet Denise. Everyone has been so courteous and helpful. They are very prompt with the response time. I could not have chosen a better ceremony venue! I cant wait until the big day!!!!!
Great ceremony location. Beautiful location and a great team who helped us to prepare properly for the wedding. The only downside was the sound . (The microphones had a problem; probably batteries were old so the mics kept going in and out.) I would totally advice couples to go with Memorial Chapel but be sure to test the sound before the wedding day to catch any sound issues beforehand.
Loved this venue! The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Not much decorating needed, the main Chapel is naturally beautiful and has more than adequate seating and space. You won't be disappointed!
We held our wedding ceremony there last September. The staff there are exceptional and very friendly. Inside the chapel is absolutely beautiful especially the altar. They offer a discount to University of Maryland alumni/students and military. I would highly recommend this vendor.
Wonderful staff who provided professional and timely services from the time we selected the main chapel to the moment we left the chapel after the ceremony. I would highly recommend this facility for your dream wedding.
My husband and I are both UMD alum, I used to work at the Chapel and we got engaged outside so it was a natural choice for our ceremony. We booked the Garden Chapel which is a good space for a small wedding. The Tree of Life installation added color to the space and meant we had to do very little in the way of additional decorations. The gardens outside are great for getting photos taken. The staff were very helpful and threw in the bridal suite to our rental for free since there wasn't a concurrent booking in the main chapel. The Main Chapel is more popular, but the Garden Chapel is easier to book and a great space for a smaller wedding.
Melva was amazing!!! She was there for me from DAY 1 and was always so responsive to my calls and emails. My wedding was everything I wanted because of Melva. Her time management and organization skills made everything go so smoothly and I couldn't have asked for a better day. Chapel was beautiful in every way and everything was so so beautiful. Thank you, Melva, for making our wedding dreams come true!
Hi M !
I am so incredibly humbled. Thank you for your kind remarks, I appreciate it so much. We do our best, and I am very happy you had a wonderful experience. Best wishes on your marriage, family and life.
Great service and ideas from chapel staff, talk thorough and rehearse before wedding.
We could not have asked for a better venue. We had a wonderful experience, and it was a pleasure working with the staff.
Very nice people. They always help you as much as they can and enjoy the big moment with you from deep heart with you.
Of all the vendors we worked with, the UMD chapel had the most responsive, accommodating staff. Definitely recommend, especially for alumni!
Everything was perfect! The process was very smooth and everything was set up for us.
