Wayfarer's Chapel - Event Space Overview

Weddings at Wayfarer's Chapel

Imagine your wedding in one of the most romantic and awe-inspiring places on earth —The Wayfarers Chapel, also known as the “Glass Chapel”. For over fifty years The Wayfarers Chapel has welcomed couples from all religious backgrounds to celebrate their wedding in this natural sanctuary.

The natural plantings inside the Chapel eliminate the need for expensive flower arrangements. Music is played by the Chapel keyboardist, or you may have The Chapel Musicians play, allowing you to choose a wide variety of music. Candles on the altar are lighted for your ceremony. For evening ceremonies a Candlelight option is available. The Chapel’s wedding staff guides you from your initial contact through your wedding day including a planning conference, your rehearsal and the wedding ceremony. One of the Chapel Ministers meets with you well before the wedding day to plan your wedding ceremony, as well as conducting your marriage service.

Designed by Lloyd Wright, the all glass sanctuary is nestled in a grove of towering redwood trees and surrounded by 3.5 acres of beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens with a panoramic ocean view of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island. The exquisite Rose Garden forms a stunning background for wedding photography and videography. Evening ceremonies provide an enchanting candlelight atmosphere.

Today, what you are looking at is not a glass church but a “tree chapel.” Chapel architect Lloyd Wright, son of the renowned American architectural pioneer Frank Lloyd Wright, had been inspired by the cathedral-like majesty of the redwood trees in northern California. The redwood trees that surround the Chapel are forming living walls and roof. Since its dedication in May 1951, millions of visitors have toured the Wayfarers Chapel and its surrounding gardens.

Chapel Gardens

Chapel Gardens

The Forest Floor Garden, located between the Chapel and the Reflection Pool, features many of the plants found in redwood forests: ferns, azaleas, irises, rhododendron, and redwood sorrel. The Rose Garden bordering the Colonnade is known for its roses that bloom year round, as well as some flowers mentioned in the Bible such as lilies, crown of thorns and aloe. Extensive lawns and outdoor grass amphitheater complete the 3.5 acre site, and complement the numerous gardens.
