Built in the early 1900’s, the chapel provides a romantic and intimate setting for your special event. The gothic style arched windows, elegant chandeliers and a glowing fireplace gives it the classic charm of yesteryear.
The chapel has an attached bridal room for you and your bridal party’s privacy. There is a small kitchen available for your convenience and outside catering is always welcome. Alcohol is allowed with a banquet permit. We also do most of the cleanup so you and your guests enjoy your special day. Just blocks away you can capture your wedding day memories with world class settings such as the rose gardens in Point Defiance Park or overlooking the breathtaking Commencement Bay. We offer several wedding packages to fit any budget! The chapel is pre-decorated for your convenience, however, you are welcome to add to or make changes to create the wedding of your dreams! Showings of the chapel are by appointment only. We take cash, check and/or credit cards. Read less

Without a doubt, the most beautiful place for a couple to begin their incredible journey together. From the moment my husband and I met with Jan, we knew we'd made the right choice for our wedding venue. Knowing that planning a wedding can be a very stressful time in a couple's life, she made us feel right at home like we'd been friends for years.

Jan obviously loves what she does very much and it shows when she works her magic of keeping everything on schedule, calming the nervous couple and keeping things light, fun and happy. Combine this with her impeccable professionalism and attention to detail, and well, our wedding turned out exactly the way she said it would... beautiful.

The Chapel's location is fabulous as well. Right next to Point Defiance park, Jan suggested the photographer take some pre-ceremony pictures in the rose gardens at the park. They turned out so beautiful! We couldn't be happier.

Everyone wants their wedding day to be beautiful and magical. Our's truly was. Thank you so much..

We could not have been more happy with how our beautiful wedding took place. Our officiant Jan from the Ruston Chapel made everything so real and perfect.

We will forever recommended this venue and Jan from the moment we had our first meeting until the last minute at the Chapel.

We are forever grateful!

We looked far and wide for venues that suited our needs. Originally, we had talked about eloping, but realized we had a number of people that wanted to make the trip with us. As we were planning a same-sex wedding from out of state and weren't going to make a trip to the venue beforehand, we definitely felt challenged to find a suitable place. Most venues were either much too large or were over the top for our needs. In searching high and low on the internet, we came across The Ruston Chapel. Such a great find! Marquelle was quick to respond, provided us with two key recommendations (officiant and photographer) and essentially functioned as a wedding planner. On our wedding day, we arrived to a stunning chapel that incorporated our colors. Marquelle has really put a lot of thought into the space and it shows. I was completely unaware of the area in the back of the chapel where Beth and I could go to get dressed and ready, speak to the officiant about last minute details and get in the head space to walk down the aisle. So perfect! If you're looking for a quaint, gorgeous little space, owned and operated by a very helpful and thoughtful Marquelle, that is perfectly decorated and about a block away from one of the best outdoor backdrops for wedding pictures ever - The Ruston Chapel is the place you want to book. Thank you, Marquelle!

Absolutely the best part about our wedding was this venue and the venue owner, Marquelle. She was the rock through the entire process. My emails, texts and calls were always answered VERY quickly, she had all the answers I needed and then some. The chapel is beautiful, and the location of the chapel is absolutely perfect. About two blocks away from the chapel is an amazing park that's perfect for the posed photos for before and or after the wedding. Inside the chapel the bridal suite was perfect for our pre wedding preparations and gathering. The chandeliers in this chapel are so beautiful, they are captured really well in photos. My favorite part about this chapel is the big red door in the front! We were worried about the reception and ceremony being in the same room, but it was perfect and worked out swimmingly. Marquelle really goes above and beyond to make her brides and grooms happy! I really don't know what I would have done if we went some place else, because I truly feel like I couldn't have done it without her. She kept the reception going, kept the food and drinks coming and even controlled the music. Thank you so much Marquelle! You and your chapel gave me the wedding of my dreams!!

My husband and I had the most beautiful experience on Sunday for our wedding. Marquelle is not only a very professional owner she a great coordinator and planner. She put my bride nerves at ease on Sunday. Always answered my questions quickly. It was a dream come true of our small but special day. I would highly recommended the Ruston Chapel for not only the price, customer service, and friendliness, but also for the beauty the small chapel provides.

Loved having my wedding at the Ruston Chapel! We originally wanted to elope but decided to have something small so our parents could be there. Marquelle was amazing and helped us create a package that fit our budget and needs being we have a parent that is disabled. She was so quick to respond to all our questions and helpful at the rehearsal. We had some pretty funny mishaps but our wedding was everything we wanted and we and our guests had some great laughs. If you are wanting a simple or small wedding this is the place to go! The chapel is amazing and I loved having the room in the back to get ready. You won't go wrong having your wedding here.

I loved my small summer wedding at The Ruston Chapel! The chapel itself was beautiful! Marquelle, the new owner, is amazing. She is kind, understanding of all things wedding-related, and really goes out of her way to make your day special for you. She has spent a lot of time renovating the chapel, and let me tell you, it is looking wonderful! Look no further for a wonderful, romantic place to get married!

The chapel was beautiful and completely ready for us a 1/2 hour before we were due to arrive. Julie was great to work with. She was very helpful both at the wedding and at the appointment to preview the chapel. I would highly recommend this chapel to anyone having a small wedding in Tacoma.

Although we haven't had our ceremony yet, Jan, the owner of the Ruston Chapel has already been so helpful! She educated us on a few options that we didn't know about for the ceremony. We even needed to change up our reception venue a few months before the wedding date to accommodate more attendees and she was very flexible and re-drew our contract (while she was on vacation, at the beach!!). I have total faith that our ceremony is gonna be the one from my dreams!
