Whether you’re looking for a Phoenix wedding chapel because you’ve always dreamed of being married in a house of worship, you’re just really keen on a smaller wedding venue or some other reason, the Valley of the Sun is lousy with gorgeous and unique wedding chapels for your wedding day. The great thing about these desert wedding chapels is you don’t have to sacrifice all of the outdoorsy things you love about the Phoenix area as you’re finding your wedding venue, like gorgeous cacti, mountain views and eternal sunshine, since some of these chapel wedding venues in Phoenix have outdoor options as well.

Here are some of our favorite Phoenix wedding chapels!

Tlaquepaque Chapel

You may have missed the chance to wed in pre-Columbian Mexico by a few hundred years, but an intimate wedding ceremony at Tlaquepaque (pronounced “T-lockey-pockey”) Chapel is basically the next best thing. Built just 30 years ago, it has the character and charm of a much older structure with stained-glass windows, an elaborate mural over the altar and a gorgeous Spanish colonial-style outdoor courtyard. Best for smaller weddings, the chapel seats 31 wedding guests on its pews while extra chairs can be added to bring the total accommodation up to 45. If you’re looking for an outdoor wedding, the seating is less limited. To add to the quaint village feel of Tlaquepaque Chapel, expect church bells to ring once your ceremony is complete to celebrate your big day.

Cave Creek Chapel

Established as a gold mining town in the late 19th century, Cave Creek, a small town about 20 miles north of Phoenix, has managed to preserve its Wild West charm. This fondness for the days of the six-shooter may be why Cave Creek is such a popular place for nostalgic wedding chapels like Cave Creek Chapel. On the larger side with the capacity to seat up to 80 wedding guests, this traditional place of worship is decked out with dark wooden pews, stained glass windows, iron light fixtures and hardwood floors.
