A high style ceremony in an intimate setting...

As Mrs. Dahlgren so eloquently described in her book, South Mountain Magic, the location of Dahlgren Chapel, atop South Mountain between Middletown and Boonsboro, is exquisite! Mrs. Dahlgren was an accomplished author, Washington D.C. socialite and the wife of Rear Admiral Dahlgren, inventor of the Dahlgren gun during the Civil War and confidant to President Abraham Lincoln.

The first wedding held at Dahlgren Chapel was that of her daughter, Ulrica Dahlgren and Major Josiah Pierce. Upholding this tradition, the Central Maryland Heritage League is proud to make the chapel available to private services, events, and weddings.

The chapel seats nearly 75 people and with its beautiful marble altar, stained glass windows, and aisle nearly 40 feet long it has provided a perfect location for wedding couples for more than 100 years! Read less

Beautiful church!! We went with this Chapel because it was one I used growing up. My husband and I are both catholic so when it came down to the 'paper work' to get married, that went as smooth as possible. The wedding coordinator for Georgetown was VERY organized and kept me on track with what was needed. We got married on Palm weekend so we weren't able to decorate the church with flowers which worked out perfect because the Chapel speaks for itself on how beautiful it is. Even if I could decorate with flowers, I'm not sure I would have. They've recently remodeled the church and it looks great! They are very strict in the time slot you have, but it worked out great and they made sure you stayed on time. I wouldn't have changed a thing about the ceremony and a big thanks to the school for allowing us to get married on campus! It was a beautiful (but COLD) day :). They put us in contact with the music director who supplied a vocalist and an organist for the ceremony. They were each about $250 but we preferred to use them rather than a guest to sign at the wedding. They don't have an ideal space for Brides to get ready in prior to the ceremony, so we got ready in the hotel nearby, shuttled to the campus, and found a classroom to put dresses on. I was a bit worried about this because I would rather be at the church a few hours ahead, however everything worked out fine. We went about 45 minutes a head of time and found a classroom without an issue. The guys were able to go into the church and relax ahead of time because there wasn't a ceremony before ours.

When we discovered the Dahlgren Chapel online, we knew it would be perfect for our small ceremony. We made an appointment that week with Martha Gude, who showed us the chapel and answered our questions. In the next few weeks, Martha and the rest of the staff that takes care of the chapel assisted us with securing the proper event insurance and so on, everyone was very helpful. Our ceremony went off without a hitch, and we got wonderful photos in and around the chapel.

The setting and chapel are absolutely beautiful, especially in the fall. Unfortunately, we experienced some communication issues with several folks associated with the venue and felt we had to work too hard to resolve their mistakes. We were told the venue was available, then not available because it had already been held for someone else, which turned out to be us, and then found out later from a family member associated with another organization that she had booked a tour of 130+ people that apparently was not entered in the chapel's book for earlier on our wedding day. Everything worked out in the end and we had a beautiful wedding...it just shouldn't have been that hard! Our concerns were escalated to a member of the board who was going to "get right on it and let us know what was going on" and we're still waiting for a call back a month+ and several voice mails to her later to find out what was ultimately happening with the tour that was scheduled, then canceled and then maybe back on. Never did get that call back....a little disappointing. Compared to other ceremony venues, the price was fair.

Everyone there was very helpful whether by email, phone or in person. They were friendly, gracious and quite flexible (I was late to an appointment [to see the chapel] due to construction). The chapel itself is GORGEOUS. They even helped me find a minister when my own fell through due to unforeseen circumstances.
