Gathering Hearts Wedding Chapel

THE CHAPEL IS CLOSING: ALL EXISTING RESERVATIONS WILL BE HONORED - NO NEW RESERVATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED - NO EXCEPTIONS

A wonderful, old country charmer of a chapel is available to folks of all faiths, orientations, and opinions, to celebrate their love and devotion. Built in 1900, our chapel is very lovely, yet very well maintained. It has a cozy, warm feel to it, and it is welcoming to all, regardless of faith or affiliations. This place is a sweet place to celebrate the wonder and miracle of love, and we hope you will choose it just for that.

Located in the heart of Farmington, Gathering Hearts Wedding Chapel is bright, warm, and it accommodates 120 seated guests plus  bridal party. It has a changing room for the brides and their maids, restrooms, along with heating and air conditioning (a rarity in chapels), although it is not wheelchair accessible (yet).

Click the teleporter to the right for a virtual tour of the chapel. You must say "beam me up" while you click though. Teleporting takes a few seconds to dematerialize / rematerialize... so hang on and don't move while in transport.

Once there, click the arrows to move around, and drag the image up and down to look around. Check out the ceremony area as well as the lower area, including the changing room".

Note: we have recently replaced the light fixtures - the old are the snow flakes, and the new are the chandeliers. Most photos show the old fixtures because there have not been many weddings since we installed the upgraded fixtures (crystal chandeliers).

Everything else is as shown.
