Interested in an outdoor wedding? The Westminster Woods chapel offers the best of both worlds, with a unique 1,600 square-foot facility featuring a retractable window wall onto a flagstone patio. The floor to ceiling windows allow spacious views of the surrounding forest, and the floor space can be configured to suit many needs. The space is air conditioned, has two large restrooms, and a small kitchen facility. Seating for 60 is available inside, with additional space on the patio.
"We couldn't be more pleased at our daughter's wedding last summer. The facility was beautiful and the setting was superb." D & L
When a rehearsal dinner is held at the dining/meeting hall, covered canopies and picnic tables can be set up outside for spring, summer, and fall usage.
The dining and small meeting hall is located close to the chapel, so it is ideally suited as a venue for the rehearsal dinner when a wedding will be held at the chapel.
For good-weather weddings, the glass wall can be opened up completely, and a heavy canopy can be set up over the stone patio to provide shade for guests seated there.
The chapel can be set up in many different configurations. The diagram on the left shows seating when arranged in concert layout; the right panel shows a theatre layout.
Other portions of Westminster Woods are also used for outdoor weddings. This photo shows how Despain Field was set up for a wedding involving 200 participants and guests.
