Wedding Ceremony

Where will you be having your wedding ceremony?

For most brides, the answer is either in their place of worship or a reception hall. Many brides do not have a place of worship. Or they have family and friends who are very diverse, so they would like to be in a neutral location, which leaves a reception hall or town hall for a justice of the peace wedding. These can be very limiting for atmosphere, memory making, and pictures. Imagine a lovely, quaint chapel from the Victorian era as the backdrop for your wedding pictures.

The Historical Chapel can be the best option for brides and grooms who want a charming place for their wedding ceremony. Located on Jericho Turnpike in lovely Woodbury, NY, the Historical Chapel is a perfect place to walk down the aisle, and for getting pictures taken. It far surpasses a town hall or a catering facility.

The chapel staff understands the stress of wedding planning. They are focused on removing the stress and making it as easy as possible for nervous brides, grooms, and family members. They will work with any schedule as much as possible, tending to all the details, so everyone can enjoy the special day.

The package options can be customized according to the party’s preference, the options include: use of the chapel or the officiant can go to your location, choice of experienced wedding officiant or use your own and an organist. Our packages are extremely cost effective and we can accommodate any budget.

There are no pre-cana or religious requirements, all are welcome to use the chapel for an easy to book ceremony.

The Historical Chapel specializes in the following types of ceremonies.

Justice of the Peace Wedding Ceremony

Renewal of Vows

Same Sex Marriages

The wedding chapel can fit up to 100 guests comfortably, with ample parking. Despite the fact that it is over 150 years old, it is equipped with the best of modern-day heating, air-conditioning, and easily accessed restrooms. The Historical Chapel is quickly found directly off major highways and roads, no need for guests to meander through miles of side roads to get there.
