A Woodsy Wedding Chapel near Raleigh, NC
This story of how our outdoor wedding chapel north of Raleigh, NC called “Chapel in the Woods” began: Our daughter, like many brides was looking for the perfect place for her dream wedding. She had decided she wanted something different from all the beautiful weddings she had attended. She wanted to make her wedding her way with her own style in mind.
I remember how panicked I felt when she decided she wanted her wedding at home on our farm. We visited other venues to change her mind, but I overheard her tell a wedding planner that she couldn’t have her dream wedding anywhere but her mom’s house. Well, that was when I knew I had to begin the process of making my home wedding-worthy.
She imagined the ceremony overlooking the pond in a woodsy area of our yard and she thought our rustic barn would serve as the perfect reception area for the guests. After showing me what she had in mind, I started to work. We had to think of all the moving parts of a wedding and plan how everything would flow. She turned our yard into a magical, enchanting experience for her friends and family. Our daughter and her husband were married at our home in 2014.
As a result, people are asking if they too can share Chapel-in-the-Woods with their wedding guests.
Praise God for blessing this little chapel!
