My Dad is an alumnus of Loyola University so this was an easy pick for our wedding ceremony. The chapel is gorgeous and the grounds are perfect for a wedding as they provide privacy and beauty, especially for pictures!

The university has this chapel running like clockwork so there is little flexibility in times and such. We were the only wedding of the day (they can schedule up to four a day) with the last time (6pm) and it was hard to get the school to budge on an earlier time for some do-it-yourself flowers to be delivered.

There are other rules like you can't throw anything inside or out (petals, birdseed, etc) and they don't allow a runner along the middle aisle (you get ugly VCT flooring instead), but none of them are deal breakers. We organized a butterfly release (breathtaking - much better than rose petals anyway!) and you don't even notice the lack of runner.

Outside of that, everything else was brilliant and the sacristan (helper on day of rehearsal and wedding) was lovely to work with. The value is incredible considering other churches wanted $1500 + to use their church. The beauty of the chapel speaks for itself. The west facing rose window is gorgeous in the early evening light and adds to the romance. I'm very happy we were married here!

Beautiful location and excellent service. They leave a lot of the responsibility of getting the paperwork, Priest, classes done on your own but send you very clear instructions on what needs to be completed. The coordinator the day of the wedding and at the rehearsal was great, she was friendly, calm and knew how to run things. They were accommodating to our needs but we were the only wedding on that day which I am sure made a difference. You do have to use their musicians but they were excellent and it made it much easier not to have to find yet another vendor to do that part. When planning the ceremony they were very helpful and flexible to what we wanted to do. None of the stuffy stuff you usually get from a Roman Catholic Church.

I went to Loyola College and always dreamed of getting married there. It's so beautiful inside and out. Only drawback is that they have weddings one after the other so they leave you little time for photos especially if you have a full traditional catholic mass like we had.

We loved getting married at Loyola College chapel! I think you need to be a student, alum, or child of an alum in order to get married there. It was just the perfect size for us. I really didn't want to get married in a cathedral and have it look like there were only a handful of guests in the first couple of rows. And it's beautiful, which meant that we didn't need to fill it with flowers to make it look really pretty -- it was fine just as it was. The only issue you might have is parking -- they don't have a huge lot, and guests would need to pay (or the hosts would need to pre-pay). And they encouraged us not to include the unity candle ceremony since it's not really a part of the official Catholic wedding mass, but they acquiesced to our wishes to include it.
