Memorial Chapel Weddings



An Overview

Welcome to the Memorial Chapel!

Whether you are planning a large celebration or intimate affair, we are thrilled that you are considering Memorial Chapel for the location of your wedding. Anyone can be married at Memorial Chapel regardless of their affiliation to the University and cultural or faith background. Ceremonies of all sizes and traditions are welcome and can be accommodated in the majestic Main Chapel or quaint Garden Chapel. Our experienced and dedicated staff handles more than 100 weddings a year and is available to assist you every step of the way from your initial reservation to "I Do."


Weddings are held at Memorial Chapel on Saturdays and Sundays in both the Main and Garden Chapels in alternating time blocks so that no two ceremonies take place simultaneously. There are some weekends, however, that weddings cannot be accommodated due to University of Maryland functions and holidays.


A wedding reservation at Memorial Chapel includes:



· 2 hours and 45 minutes in the Chapel on your wedding day (2 hours and 30 minutes in the Garden Chapel)

· A 90-minute rehearsal on the Thursday or Friday evening before your wedding

· The services of a Chapel Event Manager at your rehearsal and wedding

· The use of Chapel sound system, musical instruments, furnishings and altar pieces during your ceremony

· Two dressing/prep rooms for Main Chapel reservations or one dressing/prep room for Garden Chapel reservations on your wedding day



We are a wedding site only. The West Chapel will seat 90 or less and the Main Chapel will seat 1100.

We look forward to your call! Read less

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. She asked all the right questions and made it so the chapel was set up to fit our personal wedding. It really helped A LOT to have her there!

UMD Memorial Chapel made the planning process extremely easy. They reached out to me on many occasions before I had to even think about reaching out to them. As a bride, there are a lot of details to remember, people to contact, timelines to follow-- and UMD made that extremely easy for me.

We had our wedding at this venue. It's perfect for those that want a more traditional look for their event. The staff is professional and everything ran perfectly. This venue is popular and you have to book at least a year in advance.

I absolutely loved working with the staff (specifically Janice and Rebecca) at University of Maryland's Memorial Chapel. The chapel itself is massive, with cathedral ceilings and seating for up to 1100! We only had 100 and it was still beautiful and didn't feel too big. I planned my wedding from Atlanta, and the staff was extremely responsive via email and phone. They were very prepared with all the information I needed for my denomination (it's a non denominational chapel) and really helped make sure I was fully prepared for the ceremony. The day of coordinator was SO patient with us and was ready with all the 'accessory' items we needed (stands, candles, lights, mics, etc). They even offer discounts for winter weddings and alumni, so it was a very reasonably price!

The staff at the Memorial Chapel did a SPECTACULAR job on our wedding ceremony!!!

The chapel was decorated beautifully with our decorations and the decorations that the Chapel allows weddings to use like the candelabras, unity candle, columns to hold flower vases, etc. Plus, the chapel staff was so friendly and attentive.

Most of all, we would like to thank Janice and Denise for being so helpful and understanding while we were in the planning process of this wedding. Their advice really made it easier to plan for this special day.

The Chapel is all white with red carpet and drapes which made my wedding colors, Meadow Green & Champagne Gold, pop!!! We could not have asked for a better location for our wedding ceremony!!

Before the wedding day, UMD chapel sent us a form to fill out of what we have and need for the chapel. The Chapel has very good organ system and works perfectly than a piano. Chapel allows to have rehearsal one week or a day before the wedding ceremony.

On the wedding day, there will be two assistants to help out during the ceremony and they did a great job.

Recommendation: Always pick out the organist from the list that provided by UMD chapel because they really know to set up the music and very professional.

The Memorial Chapel was a symbolic location to hold our wedding, as we met at the University of Maryland as students. All of the staff was tremendous to work with and always tried to do their best. We wish there would have been more time allotted between weddings to assist with ensuring all family pictures could have been completed in the Chapel. As we were leaving, the next couple was coming in and already starting to set up. I would highly recommend this vendor to other couples who are looking for a beautiful non-denominational venue!
