The Chapel at Fort Snelling is without a doubt one of the most beautiful chapels I have seen. I was so blessed to be able to hold my ceremony there! The only down side was that we have a large married/divorced family as well as a very large wedding party (16 not counting my husband and I) and pictures were so crazily rushed due to the time constraint... I really wish we would have more time! But other than that the day of coordinator was great! and I would really recommend this site!

Wonderful location, very flexible with options and letting you review the space and details. Gorgeous setting and easy to access for all guests. Also had a wonderful menu for the sitdown dinner - food was fantastic!

An amazing chapel to get married in. Craig Tennison is the organist for the chapel and worked amazingly well with the cordinator. I would recommend this chapel to anyone. Very occomidating day of but book early if you have a specific time you'd like your ceremony at.

i have been to multiple weddings at the fort snelling club, i loved everyone of them. i was utterly dissappointed the night of my wedding. the management (barb)there would not work with us ahead of time, never returning calls or answering questions. the waitress in the restaurant helped us more than the management.

the night of the wedding: our dinner was delayed, it took them 45 minutes to serve water and coffee, when they were suppose to have them on the table before guests arrived. the food was dry, the vegetables were undercooked. we paid for cake service, we had to ask them for 30 minutes to start cutting the cake, when they did, they sent out one old lady to do it, but no servers. one of my relatives had to help cut and serve all the cake, which took over 30 minutes.

the whole night went well otherwise, but fort snelling just made it impossible to enjoy the evening with no worries...

Great place. Very well priced. Good food, bar area right in the reception hall. Planning staff is not that helpful or professional but if you can see past that in the beginning it is worth it.

Romantic Chapel full of History and Charm! We are both fell in love with this Chapel the minute we drove across the little bridge that seperates it from the rest of the compound. The non-denominational aspect of the venue fit our life style as we have a personal friend who performed the service for us.
The space is intimate yet held our 170 guests without a problem. The caretaker, Darrell was fabulous! He was married at the Chapel himself and is more than willing to help you arrange any thing you need, from where to set up the unity candles to a musician to play the restored pipe organ. He's your "go-to" guy! And at 80+ years old, he gets the job done.
We couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to be wed.

This is a great place to get married if you or someone you know are in the military. It is such a quaint, cute little chapel. You are allowed to bring in your own pastor and musicians and you can run your ceremony however it pleases you! It is also very low in cost if you are military! The only downside was that it was a little hard for some guests to find and it is on the smaller side. Other than that, it is perfect!

My wife and I chose Chaplin Beale simply because we had chosen his church for our wedding--having no knowledge of him. Boy were we impressed! During the rehearsal he was able to entertain as well as instruct, and was able to use his sense of humor, knowledge and army background well to captivate the audience.

As for the ceremony, I cannot count how many have expressed to me how excellent of a job Chaplin Beale did. He is an all-around wonderful public speaker that just happens to also be a Chaplin. I simply cannot say enough good things about him.


See the site below for more about Chaplin Beale.
