Patten Chapel is the cornerstone of the UTC campus. Dedicated in 1919 as part of The University of Chattanooga, Patten Chapel has seen the days come and go. The original entrance on McCallie Avenue is no longer used. Doors at the rear open to the main court yard of the campus. There is also an entrance to Hooper-Race Hall where restrooms and snacks are located. Parking is available in lot 26, across Douglas Street from Fletcher and Founders Halls. The Chapel seats approximately 400 people in rich oak pews. The brick is a dark reddish brown that has warmed with the years. Highlighted by the brick are the moss and rust colored stain glass windows. Gothic chandeliers reveal dark brown ornate woodwork arches that finish the ceiling in the seating chamber. The chancel floor is rich red pottery tile. The woodwork is a deep rich oak again highlighted by the same gothic chandeliers. The pipe organ is no longer available but a small electronic with two manuals is located to the house right of the chancel. A studio piano is available on the house left side. Read less

This is a breathtaking location that hardly needs decorations. We used minimal decor, and it was perfect. A few things to keep in mind... The lady in charge of booking is hard to get in touch with as her hours are very inconvenient. You must book extremely early in advance if you want a Saturday. However, I got married on a Sunday and booked it only 5 months in advance. You get the chapel 3 hours prior to your ceremony time, and about an hour-hour 1/2 after. We actually got most of our pictures done before the ceremony with plenty of time. You cannot use real flower petals inside the chapel that may stain (such as rose petals). They do have other strict rules, but they're not hard to follow. If you comply, the day should go smoothly. Ours was great, and we had no issues. The lady who was overseeing the ceremony was nice, and she was also the one who opened the doors for us for the rehearsal (which is usually on a Thursday, unless you can convince them to have it another day, which we did). The price is affordable, and, again, truly a beautiful place. Both inside the chapel and outside in the garden make for fantastic pictures. Everyone was blown away by the beauty of the location.

I was able to easily get in contact with this vendor when I had questions. Employees were available during the rehearsal as well as the ceremony to assist with our needs. I was also contacted a couple of days after and told Congratulations on my wedding.

Patten Chapel is beautiful! We loved having our ceremony here, but the staff was very difficult to work with. My fiance was facing a deployment so we had to move our wedding up four months. The woman who handles the schedule was very rude to me when I explained the situation and even said "Well your fiancee was in the military when you booked the chapel. You knew this was a possibility." We found out later she lied to me about another wedding being booked the weekend we wanted to have our ceremony.
