I was a groomsman. It's possible these incompetents kept the bride happy, but I don't see how. They are mean, pushy, unprofessional, and not at all good at minimizing stress (which seems to ooze off of them like pheromones and infect all those around). The catering was subpar, the staff will treat you like untouchables if you want to have any alcohol at the reception, the dancefloor was not very inviting for more than a few guests, they sat the grandparents right next to the DJ's loud speakers (wtf?) and the scheduling was way off. They sent the guests through buffet lines right after the wedding (which is fine...hungry guests are grumbly guests) and started taking pics of the wedding party and the families.

By the time my friend and his new wife were able to join us, they had to quickly cut the cake and do some other administrative crap thrust upon them by the staff, then try and fight their way through a crowd of well-wishers to their tables on the other side of the reception hall, where their already cold and rather unappetizing food awaited them.

Seriously, the staff here blows. There are bound to be other places in OKC where you will be treated like a human being, rather than dirt.

While the venue is kind of pretty, the soft carpet pad at the front of the chapel is some day going to result in a broken ankle for a bride or bridesmaid in any non-flat shoe.

Walnut Creek was an absolutely beautiful location for our wedding. The staff was helpful and made sure the evening went smoothly. We were so glad to have a group of professionals who knew what they were doing and thought of every detail, scheduling all of our appointments. I do, however, think they would benefit from offering several different vendors. The caterer wasn't particularly friendly when my bridesmaids and I went to the tasting. They also had food that we had not chosen on our list - I was so glad my mother told me to double check on it just a couple of weeks before the wedding. I also had to remind the DJ during the reception that we wanted a mother/father of the bride dance. Aside from a few minor things, we were very happy with Walnut Creek and would recommend the venue to our friends!

The Chapel was absolutely beautiful and served as a great backdrop for the wedding pictures! The staff was very professional and formal. The only issue I had was that there were a few minor details that they required that I didn't care for like corsages and boutonnieres for our grandparents that they kept trying to push me to do. But that was the only issue that I had.

I am SO glad we chose to have our wedding at Walnut Creek Chapel! The grounds and building are beautiful, and the staff are so great to work with! They made planning very easy and stress-free by taking care of so many of the details. On the wedding day, my husband and I - and our families and friends - were all able to just enjoy the day and be in the moment. No frantic running around trying to coordinate and manage everything - Walnut Creek took care of everything! Everyone who came to the wedding said it was one of the funnest they'd attended, and even my perfectionist mom told a friend, "It was so fun! Let's do it again!"

I love the facility, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I was very disappointed in the catering though. They did not allow me to attend a tasting of the food, and it was DISGUSTING. I was embarrassed to have served it to my guests. It tasted like frozen dinners. Other than that, they did a great job helping me make decisions and have a "stress-free" day. But BEWARE: the DJ they have is super corny!

This was the most beautiful moment of my life! The chapel at Walnut Creek Chapel is just beautiful. Guests were walking in and couldnt help comment on how peaceful and perfect the place was for our wedding. The front of the church is made almost entirely out of glass windows, so there was so much natural light coming in the room. Dr. Gene and Judy, two of the owners, were wonderful in showing us the chapel and helping us plan for our wedding day.

Walnut Creek Wedding Chapel "We specialize in stress-free weddings" Are you kidding me? If I would have searched for reviews on this place they call a business first, I would have NEVER booked my wedding here! Yes the chapel, reception, and the groundskeeping is beautiful, but the owners are not professional or personable.

Walnut Creek reels you in by making you think that they will cater to your every need, want, and desire. They set up your appointments with the vendors for you, which by the way are a joke. They have certain vendors that are locked in to give you crappy service and they get paid for showing up, regardless of if they do a good job or not. The DJ vendor makes you fill out a 4 page form that they do not adhere to. The Cake vendor does not pay attention to detail and does not deliver the cake that is picked from the "cake book". Also, you will get to taste only 2 of the several selections she has available.

The most disheartening thing was that the DJ announced the buffet was open while we were taking our pictures. When we entered reception people were finishing up, our reserved tables were taken, and we had to rush through our cake cutting. The staff did not control the flow of the wedding as promised. For $28 per head they definately need to hire a bigger staff. I had a staff of 4 in a wedding of 150 plus people. With the Chapel and Reception for the staff to cover, my expense for my "dream wedding" was ruined!!

I was 2,000 miles away on my honeymoon wondering if I chose the right facility for my wedding and the answer if NO!! I wrote a lenghty letter to Walnut Creek Chapel, Owners, Staff and Vendors to express my distress. I didn't not receive a response until a month later when I sent a certified follow up letter. They responded with "It is unfortunate that you felt this way" One sentence and I spent over $7000 for 5 hours of them asking me what they should do next. BRIDES BEWARE, I DIDN'T GET WHAT I PAID FOR!!!

Walnut Creek Chapel is a really great place to get married if you want everything done for you for one price. you get to make the decisions but they help set up meetings, they have books of the different vendors for you, pictures of the chapel from other weddings, and the best staff. The chapel and surrounding land was beautiful and everyone who attended sais it was beautiful too. The cahpel helped us book the DJ, the photographer, the caterer, limo, and the musician. they can also help with the cakes, officiant, flowers, and rentals. Like I said they were wonderful to work with and I would recommend them to everyone getting married.

Walnut Creek was a beautiful venue to have the wedding and reception. They have different packages according to what you would like in your wedding and help recommend reliable florists, photographers, etc. You do not have to go with all of their services but they usually save you money in the long run. There were a few things that I was disappointed in however. We met with the DJ (they provide) and specified that we didn't want the chicken dance and those sort of dances. He played the chicken dance, electric slide, twist and shout, and more. I was not happy. I'm sure he felt it was his duty to get the guests up and moving, but I feel that when you ask for something you shouldn't get a surprise like that on your wedding day. Another great disappointment was my exit from the reception to the limo... we had paid Walnut Creek for sparklers to be handed out to everyone before we were rushed out the door, there were NO sparklers. In fact the guests wouldn't have had anything at all if my sister hadn't bought bubbles. We were shown a picture during a meeting at Walnut Creek of a couple leaving with their guests holding sparklers over them and it was beautiful. So that was the plan. It was a huge disappointment when everything else (minus the DJ) had gone so smoothly. In a whirlwind of a day I would have liked the end to have been executed A LOT better. That being said, if you are strict with the DJ, and make sure the venue remembers all of your requests, it could be a fabulous place to have a wedding.

Walnut Creek Chapel was an excellent experience if you do not want to worry about anything on your wedding day. They will make sure everything goes well and according to plan. They were very helpful and extremely nice to work with.They do ALL the planning for you!! I would definatly recommend this place to anyone who wants to just relax of their day!!

The only cons I would have to say, you do need to book well in advance if you want a certain date. If you are on a budget, I would have to say it is a little costly.

I was a guest at this wedding, and the chapel is beatiiful, you got lost going into the actual ceremony space, the employees were NOT helpful. Also the servers were dressed inappropriately to be serving. I disagreed with how it all felt rushed. Also, the sound system is horrible, you couldn't hear anything that was being said.
