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.

Wayfarer's was beautiful and all the staff did an amazing job of making our wedding run smoothly. If you are not familiar with their policies, a weekend wedding costs $3,000.00. This includes 2 hours on the property, bridal changing room, minister, and ceremony music. The Chapel was perfect size for our small wedding, 70 guests. Also your phtographer is not allowed past the back pew during the ceremony. (Jolynne still had amazing shots!). Over all it was a great expierience there. I don't think I would have changed anything!

The church is beautiful and everything was great until my wedding day. When my wedding party and photographer arrived at the top of my time slot to my surprise the church was open to the public and they would not set aside any area for me to take pictures with out strangers in the back ground! then was told to leave at the end of my two hour time slot when I only asked to be able to take a few more pictures with my family. VERY SAD!!!!!!

The Wayfareres Chapel is without a doubt the most beautiful and unique church I have ever been to. I knew from the moment I saw it when I was 13 years old that this was the place I wanted to get married. We booked the church site unseen since my first visit as a teenager and I was just hoping I would still love it as much, and I did. All the people we worked with were very friendly and helpful. The cost is a bit more than your average chruch ceremony and the church only holds 100 people, but you're paying for the beauty of the place and that is understandable. Since the church has limited space it helps you limit your guest list and over all you might save money in other areas. They do have some strict rules only one that I would have liked to change; you only have about 30 minutes at the chruch after the ceremony to take pictures, the reason is ceremonys are booked back to back and a Bride dosen't want to see another bride on her wedding day. I guess I can understand that but I would have loved to have all the bridal party photos taken there. We ended up going to Trump golf coarse down the street to take the rest of our photos and it worked out just fine. Over all this was a beautiful venue and unforgettable for us and our guests.

What can I say? This place is absolutely beautiful, and it was the perfect venue for our ceremony. We got married in December, so there were poinsettias decorating the front of the chapel. It was gorgeous, and it did not matter one bit that they do not let you bring in your own decorations--no extra decorations were needed! The place is so beautiful on its own that you don't need anything extra. I had so many guests tell me that it was the most beautiful wedding ceremony they had ever seen. Even though you only get that 2-hour window on the chapel grounds, we had enough time to get many beautiful pictures, and the majesty of this place makes it worth it. Also, the minister was wonderful. Could not have imagined more beautiful ceremony.

We had our wedding there last November. Everyone at the chapel was so helpful and they guided us through from start to finish. The fee was all worth it since the view was breathtaking and the ceremony was so meaningful.

Absolutely beautiful location! My husband & I got married on 10/03/12. It was everything we imagined & expected. At first I was disappointed that no pictures were allowed in the chapel, but afterwards & after attending other weddings, I understood why. It is a distraction from the ceremony that is a sacred moment. At other weddings in different locations, the photographer was annoying. I couldn't see what was going on between the bride and groom - the photographers were "just in the way." The chapel is very strick about photos being taken inside during the ceremony and I am thankful that my photographer got some great shots from the back of the chapel and was not in the way of our guests.
Oh, by the way, our photographer Lisa Coplen is AMAZING!
Reverend Dan Burchett was WONDERFUL!!!! He made us laugh & feel so comfortable. It is evident that he loves what he does.
One thing I would change would be the time frame allotted to each couple. Although, it is a well oiled machine... my family and friends felt a bit rushed to leave once the ceremony was complete. It's great to be on a schedule, but I guess I would have liked more time to enjoy the grounds & more time to take photos at the chapel since it is so enchanting. However, it was only a small sacrifice that we knew we would encounter.
It also would have been nice if the lady helping us that day who works at the chapel organizing each wedding would have asked if we had the ring bearers pillow. In the hustle and bustle of the day, we forgot & it was just a few steps away in the trunk of the car. Just a small detail like that would have helped. But that's forgivable, maybe not for my 6 year old nephew who was disappointed, but for us.
Overall, the Wayfarers Chapel is enchanting! I would definitely recommend it! Our day was beautiful!
