Meet Our Family

The Little Chapel at Haven Ridge is first and foremost, a private family-owned sanctuary.

"Rooted in love", a mantra the Bradford family conveys through the inclusive community cultivated here. We specialize in inclusive intimate weddings, elopements and special events in a setting artfully designed to entwine European heritage and old-world architectural style.  The Little Chapel is a symbol of hope, peace, and a reminder that no dream is impossible with faith. We invite you to delight in this safe haven and share in creating new memories that will last a lifetime, from our family to yours.
