We had our wedding ceremony at the Memorial Chapel at University of Maryland, College Park. Leading up to the big day, staff was very prompt in responding to our e-mails and rehearsal was smooth with a staff member present to assist with any questions or concerns our officiant or wedding planner had. The venue had the candles and stands for us to use during our ceremony which made it easier for us not having to worry about those. Everything met our expectations and we are very pleased with how everything turned out.

The Memorial Chapel at UMCP was a great option for us since we are both alumni of the school :) Pictures came out great, our day-of coordinator was super helpful and accommodating. The staff were also very responsive throughout the planning process via email and they answered all our questions! Great acoustics if you're looking to have live music too!!

I was so happy to have the chapel as my wedding venue. The inside was gorgeous! The long isle was stunning and made for such a dramatic entrance. :) We were assigned a coordinator for our rehearsal and wedding; she was great.
