With its breathtaking Pacific Ocean view and original Lloyd Wright architecture, the Wayfarers Chapel was conceived as a respite for all wayfarers on the journey of life. Here all people may sit and be nurtured by the beauty of nature and enjoy peaceful meditation. No one realized that this simple idea would produce a world-renowned sacred site. The power of Wayfarers Chapel is a blend of the sacred purpose and beauty that people experience. This quiet beauty is emphasized by the openness and echoing of nature in the elegant glass structure.

My grandparents married here in 1960 as they were high school sweethearts.
I always wanted a destination wedding near the beach and this was by far the most amazing place to come. Plus it had so much meaning for me to go back where my grandparents once stood.
Staff is awesome and on top of it and our pastor was even better. Love!

Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. Stunning location, super friendly and helpful staff, wonderful pastor. They made our special day stress free and beautiful. There is no more beautiful chapel to get married at. The only thing I would have liked is to have more than 2 hours at the church. 3 hours would have been perfect for longer picture taking time.

If you have seen Wayfarers, you know why people choose it, this was the first wedding venue we looked at, and there was nowhere else for me once I saw it in person. I had always dreamed of getting married near the ocean, but still wanted a church ceremony, and this was the perfect combination of the two. They do lots of weddings here, and they walk you through the process step by step. I wanted to make a small change to the ceremony (I wanted to include a ring blessing), which we did include. They assign a minister to you, we were assigned Father Mouret, who met with us beforehand, and the ceremony he performed was perfect for us. They also assign you a coordinator who is there for a planning meeting, rehearsal and ceremony. Deborah was absolutely amazing, she helped manage all of us, including making sure my 91 year old grandmother was able to wait inside, and still managed to keep her from seeing me beforehand. It is a little pricey, but for us, it was totally worth it.

I had my ceremony at Wayfarer's Chapel.
Pros:
-It is a beautiful chapel overlooking the ocean.
-It comes with a wedding coordinator.

Cons:
-You only get 2 hrs at the chapel. No more than 2 hours for your ceremony and pictures. You get rushed out at the end of your two hours. They book each wedding party on two hour blocks. For example, your time ends at 2PM, another party begins right at 2PM.
-The cost is $3,000. (It's a little steep for only 2 hours.)
-During the holidays, they have a circular wreath at the altar. I did not like it and they could not take it down. (I did not see this when I booked the chapel.)
-The wedding coordinator seemed to change each time I was there, making it hard to keep the facts and what would happen straight for the wedding coordinator.
-I had my ceremony at noon. The light in the chapel is bad for pictures the altar at that time in December. Might want to keep that in mind. It would have been nice if the chapel told people this or had blinds to block the light from coming in.

From the "we're just checking things out" phase to the post-ceremony wrap-up we were extremely pleased with our experience at Wayfarers. There are some relatively strict rules about hosting an event at this location, (no decorations allowed, for example) but with such an exquisite venue nothing was an issue big enough to matter. We were able to combine both our favorite songs via ipod for some portions of the ceremony and the tremendous musical talents of the chapel muscians for the others. We are so happy to have found this venue and grateful for the easy and efficient process the chapel has for helping couples create their magical day.

I had my ceremony on a September morning and it was simply gorgeous there. The coordinators were very efficient and helpful. It can be a little difficult to find a nearby reception site other than Terranea.

This place is magical, it is beyond beautiful. The wedding Director that they assign you walks you through everything (at your initial meeting and at the rehearsal) And your meeting with the minister is awesome, he'll walk you through every single word he is going to say, and they are very flexible with Changes. There is no other Chapel quite like this place. Worth every penny!
