I had my wedding at this chapel 10/08 and I will have to say how much stress and emotional it has left in my life.My guest was treated very poorly.Alot of my guest left due to the way they were treated and the way the owner made the parents feel as she starred at their children like she wanted to throw darts at them.This statement was made by a soilder that served in Iraq for us.His daughter was the one that she keep starring at and she is not even 2 yrs old yet. Like how much damage can a child do at that age.The server's where in the kitchen eating my food with no gloves on.Wine and Beer was set out in the room with no server around to ensure that only adults was receiving the alochol.Make sure you read her contract they are very deceiving and you do not get what is stated in the contract.I paid for the chapel for 5 hours although my guest was uncomfortable and left we where pushed out before my time was up. I did NOT get the 5 hours that was stated in my contract.For all future brides I would not recommend this place for your wedding due to my experience.Although I highly recommend Katherine for a professional photograher. She is top notch when it comes to taken pictures and makes it so much fun.God Bless and I hope this will save a bride from her day being stripped from her because of 1 person. That is the Brides day to shine.It is more worth taken $4000.00 dollars and doing it in your backyard at least that way you are sure there is no bad company around to ruin your day.Again pray for the heartless people and the ones that hurt you. Because God made all of us equal and you should always be treated as equal no matter who you are or what color, no one is better than the good Lord that put us here.Don't even try to tell your complaints because it is taken personally no apolgy just a dail tone.How professional is that.Not a apology just a dial tone.It really makes you feel that you had your wedding at a place that they just take your money then could care a less about anything else.Nor do you get what her contract states!! I will pray for this person cause even thou I am hurt by her I will raise above that and forgive and pray for her to respect other peoples feelings.
Horrible place

I attended a wedding as a guest and let me tell you, children and friendly people are not welcome here!!!! I am an over protective mother with a 12 year old and 12 month old. I attended with my 12 month old and very disappointment in the "host" during the reception. I am 40 years old and this women gave me and my child the look of "i wish you would leave" all night. I sat there patiently, as this was a night for the bride and I thought i was being judgemental because she looked and acted soooo mean. But, as the other small children began to dance in the middle of the floor and start enjoying themselves, her behavior worsened. A friend that I came with could not take this womens actions any longer and asked her, very nicely, "are we bothering you?". Her reponse, to a guest, "yes, the children are a problem". I could not believe that children dancing ON THE DANCE FLOOR and following each other around while a crowd of parents were seeing to their care, was bothering her. I thought to myself, she is crazy. These WELL BEHAVED children were having fun and celebrating the way children do. I have been around alot of weddings and alot of children and these kids were almost perfect. It's a true shame that someone in this business has such a hate for children, because only someone so unkind would act the way this women did. My friend continued to be upset by her response and behavior and very nicely asked, "Would you like us to leave?" and the host reponse was "that is up to you!". Can you believe's up to you. Why would anyone running a business have someone like this around a customer???!!!! If you have no friends to invite and don't care how you are treated and want to work with someone who doesn't care about you or your wedding day, then this is the place. But if you want a special experience, then STAY AWAY!!!! THESE PEOPLE DONT CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES! They have yet to appologize for this behavior to the bride and still do not care about her or how they have ruined her most special day in her life. it's a shame that people like this exist!!!!!!!!!!

I have a friend who got married here the first part of October. The owner/proprietor Lana Robinson, was very rude to my friend, the wedding party and the guests. The wedding party was not allowed into the church at the time agreed, therefore they were not ready when the guests started to arrive. Ms. Robinson ran roughshod over everyone in her pursuit of "calm and order". During the reception, several small children of the guests were playing on the dance floor (which no one was using at the time). Ms. Robinson stood over them, glowering like the Wicked Witch of the West.(She fit this role perfectly with her painted on eyelashes -really! and her not found in nature shade of red hair styled to resemble an 80's rock band) At one point, a parent asked her if there was a problem to which Ms. Robinson responded as if she was running a home for unruly, incorrigible children. Several guests left early because of her attitude. Ms. Robinson also failed to order a specific decorative/commemorative item for the bride that was to honor her deceased mother. Ms. Robinson also charged a fee for a server to serve alcohol but these services were not provided - rather it was a self serve beverage buffet. Any child could have walked right up and helped themselves to alcohol. Although the facility and the wedding were beautiful, I would not recommend this place for your wedding.
