 The upper level Sanctuary is 2,100 square feet with wood floors, beams and wainscoting.  Spectacular views from our soaring windows (30 feet) with chandeliers and lighting on dimmers.   Double wooden doors offer a dramatic entry for the bridal party.  The chapel architecture is versatile and conforms to use as a rustic outdoorsy feel, casual elegance or a formal affair. 

 We can seat up to 150 guests and feature white folding wedding chairs, window lanterns, Grecian columns with floral accents, and a decorated wood and stone cross.   Additional decorator items are available for your use.   We also provide a guest book table, decorative accent tables for ceremonial items (IE: Unity Candle) and more.
