Wedding Reviews and Testimonials

The wedding testimonial letters of gratitude we have received over the years have expressed such genuine, heartfelt appreciation.  These wedding review letters not only convey the connection we share with each of our couples but also acknowledge how much we care in creating the day you have always anticipated and a compelling memory to go right along with it.  Have a testimonial?  Let us know!

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for allowing us to honor Shawna at your chapel. The location was beautiful and you were very accommodating. Thanks again, you really helped us out when we needed it.

The chapel was beautiful, the grounds looked great! You were so great in helping us get everything right, answering any questions and steering us in the right direction.

Thank you both so much for being a part of our wedding experience. We can’t imagine what it would have been like without your assistance.

Thank you so much for all that you did. You kept us in line! We would have never pulled it off without your guidance.

We would both like to thank you for making our wedding such a beautiful day. You really took a bunch of New Yorkers and made them feel at home in your lovely little town. Everyone who attended our wedding could not say enough about your gorgeous chapel and touching ceremony.

The chapel and grounds are so pretty and well maintained. My coworkers all wanted to know where and the name of the chapel, after seeing the few pictures we had.

Bob & I would like to go on record as one of your testimonials. We were so thrilled to find such an ideal spot for our wedding and so close to where our new home will be. You all were so helpful in every detail no matter what the need, one of you would find a way to fill it. You’re great examples of what Christ meant when He said to have the attitude of a servant.
We really can’t express our appreciation fully…you really played a very key role in making our wedding day just as special as we’d prayed it would be.
Bob & Jennifer

Thank you very much for all of your work. We appreciate very much, all details that you took care of for us. It made us feel much more relaxed. The wedding was perfect.
Thank you again.

I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for making my wedding so beautiful! My husband Dave and I got married at Chapel in the Pines, August 12, 2000. We received “SO MANY” compliments on the chapel. All our guests thought it was the most beautiful place they had ever seen. We have told many people about you and how great it was to work with you. You were so kind and helpful, my wedding was perfect, thanks to both of you. Thank you again for the beautiful memories!

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful we thought having Tony & Staci’s wedding at your chapel was. Everyone said it was like a little paradise. The warmth that everybody felt just being there. You can really feel the “LOVE” in your little chapel, and I wanted to thank you so much for sharing that warmth and love with my family and friends. You truly are a beautiful person to open your doors and let others feel your love.
