June 1, 2023 was the best day of our lives! We were fortunate enough to have found The Little Chapel and Mollie and her family were a dream to work with to make the day everything we had hoped it would be. The Little Chapel is a magical spot and sense of calmness and serenity comes over you when you drive onto their property. Before we even signed our agreement to secure our date, TLC staff was so wonderful and welcoming and were genuinely happy to answer all of our questions and tell us all about their property and the uniqueness that sets it apart from other venues. If you’re looking for an intimate chapel ceremony with a beautiful landscape for photos and reception then this is the venue for you!
Planning a wedding is stressful so when you have vendors that are kind and excellent at what they do it really makes all the difference. Mollie was on top of every detail before I even thought to ask about it. She was accommodating and understanding if we had questions or slight changes to our schedule or event set up. If you come to The Little Chapel, you immediately notice the attention to detail the Bradford family put into building this magical spot. We knew when we signed, we wanted our closest friends and family to be able learn about the details as well and Mollie’s father was generous enough to come to our rehearsal and explain the history of the chapel and the significance and attention to detail they put into each decision and material when building. That same attention to detail and significance is continuing to be thought of as they add more to their property.
Mollie and TLC really put their customers first and let you know they value you having the best experience with them. We were in-between plans on having a getting ready spot that worked for us day of and to accommodate our wedding party. We were fortunate The Inn at The Little Chapel was ready for use for our day. The Inn has two separate spots with separate entrances so the bridal party can all get ready and hangout at The Inn the day of and be conveniently located right on the property. The space for the girls is a beautiful room, with natural lighting, plenty of seating and room for snacks & champagne! They have a huge mirror that spans the width of the room so hair and makeup is able to be viewed by all.
The day of the wedding was as smooth as it could be, thank you to Mollie and staff at TLC! They ensured guests were arriving to the correct location, they transported members of the bridal party to and from the getting ready spot as needed and assisted with the processional of the ceremony. The ceremony itself was breath-taking and intimate. The sun was shining through the stained glass and the photos of our bridal party and 60+ guests sitting in the chapel are pictures we will cherish forever. The chapel has so much attention to detail when you look at all of the beautiful touches and thought that was put into creating this magical space that families like ours are fortunate to spend some of life’s biggest moments at.
After the ceremony, we were able to use their golf cart to be shuttled to various spots on the property for photos. There are so many locations for your photographer to grab a variety of amazing shots! We loved the fields, the flowers and beautiful trees!
We will absolutely be back as a family to capture more moments and we feel so lucky that we can visit the spot where we were married. With all of the additions The Little Chapel is continuing to bring to the property (The Greenhouse, The Tiny House, etc!) I would encourage you to reach out to them today to tour the property for your special day. From there, the property will take your breath away when you step into the chapel but what I think will really solidify your decision is when you meet the sweet family that created The Little Chapel. Just know that they are going to be behind you every step of the way to ensure your day is perfect. Thank you to Mollie & the Bradford family for making June 1, 2023 the best day of our lives!
