Very flexible with few rules or restrictions. Staff is hands off, and leaves you to what you're there to do. Large bridal room. Some stains on carpet, but only few would see or notice. Simple with an exposed organ. Two aisles makes for restricted viewing, but if you exit the other direction you came in from, everyone will be able to see you at some point. Holds up to 300. Overall, great place to get married!

We had our ceremony at Jones Chapel and it was absolutely stunning. There are several chapels without active congregations in Raleigh (important to us because we wanted to bring in our own minister from out of town), but this was the only one that would accommodate our 250+ guests comfortably! They were also very flexible in allowing my uncle to come play the organ and practice several times before the wedding. Natalie, who books events at the chapel, was always very responsive and professional. The only things we would change would be the high price and their flexibility regarding access times. The fee to use the chapel is hefty, and it only includes 4 hours of access. That means you can't get ready at the chapel that day without paying additional fees, and it created some issues for us because we wanted to do all of our photos in the church before the ceremony. There also wasn't much flexibility when it came to scheduling our rehearsal, and we didn't know until about a month before the wedding whether we would actually get to have our rehearsal in the chapel or not due to the only offered rehearsal time being smack dab in the middle of our rehearsal dinner. Despite this, everything did turn out smoothly in terms of accessing the chapel for both our rehearsal and our ceremony. The only other feedback that I would give is that the air conditioning was not turned down enough the day of the wedding and there wasn't anyone from Meredith readily available to help us figure it out--thankfully we took photos in the chapel beforehand and realized how hot it was well before guests arrived, and we were able to find the thermostat and crank it down.

Bottom line: if money is no concern and you don't mind there being fairly rigid rules about access times, the chapel is a stunning venue in a very nice location, and you certainly won't have any communication issues with the booking process.

Our wedding at Jones Chapel was great. Natalie was our main contact for the event. She did a great job of communicating all our essential times and information. I initially felt a little constricted by the time options for the church, but after going through the day I admit that everything was actually just fine. We had just the right amount of time for what we wanted. The church itself is absolutely beautiful. You don't need much to make this church look beautiful, in fact I think with this beautiful architecture less is more. One of the best parts about this venue is parking. We only held our ceremony here, but there was enough space for parking without a headache. In fact the church even provides a security guard to make sure parking and the flow of things runs smoothly outside. On the day of we even had a facility coordinator to make sure everything we well with the time and flow. This church has a cozy feel, but still a vintage nostalgia. I was pleased with the wedding and the church grounds for our wedding. I would definitely recommend Jones Chapel.

Jones Chapel is located on a beautiful college campus with lots of trees, a lake, and amphitheater (great for wedding pictures). The church itself is Georgian styled and has a wonderful ornate organ at the front of the church. It was initially a Baptist church so has left and right side aisles, vice one central aisle. Natalie Herrmann is the event coordinator there…she and her staff were very accommodating. Highly recommend this as a ceremony site.
