About Our Ministers . . .

One of the most important parts in selecting a chapel site is knowing who will be officiating your wedding ceremony. Will your Minister be legally ordained and licensed? Will he be qualified? And, will he take an active interest in your personal needs?

We have worked diligently to find Pastors who are not only ordained, but who also enjoy working with couples.  All of our Pastor's receive rave reviews from our couples when it comes to making them and their guests feel like this was a very special day. All our Pastors offer a non-denominational Christian ceremony; regardless of your personal religious background, you will feel at home in our Chapel.

What Couples have said about our ministers:

"We asked if he would use the vows we had written, and he did." "He used our names so many times during the ceremony that our guests thought he knew us personally.""We were amazed, and pleased, at how their pastor was able to put us at ease, and take the fear out of our special day."

From time to time we use other local pastors, but rest assured they will be ordained and more than capable to provide you with the ceremony that you will remember for the rest of your lives.

On occasion, we are asked about 'guest ministers'.  We are able to accommodate guest ministers in 2 ways.  One, for 1 hour wedding packages, we invite guest ministers to say the prayer.  Two, for our 2 hour wedding packages, we invite guest ministers to perform the entire ceremony.     This policy is in place as we can not determnine the length of a guest ministers ceremony and our experience in the past is that these ceremonies tend to be much longer.    We have an obligation to provide a family and friends photo session after the ceremony as well as a "romance portrait" session and if a guest minister's ceremony runs late, we would not be able to provide the photo sessions within the 1 hour reservation time.
