Atop the chapel building is a bell tower framed by clear blue sky and hills decorated in evergreen trees.

As one enters the chapel, a long, red carpet stretches from the vestibule to the first row of pews, creating a rich walkway for you and your wedding party. Warm, white walls and a vaulted ceiling coffered of dark wood add to the grace and beauty of the chapel. The glow and warmth of natural light shining through brilliant stained glass windows create an elegant atmosphere perfect for a wedding.
