  • Beautiful view, stunning venue, and perfect wedding location. I attended a wedding here and in addition to the celebration amenities, we were able to see whales near the coast and enjoy the picturesque garden on the grounds! This is an unforgettable place to celebrate one of life's unforgettable moments. Room for improvement: The strict timetable for weddings along with the steep price tag for the venue makes it feel like we are being rushed out of the church. The venue should provide ample time to enjoy a wedding for a price that doesn't give a reason for the customes to rush.
  • My husband and I got married here and it is absolutely stunning!! The chapel is beautiful and the grounds are breath taking. Dan was our officiant and he was fantastic - we absolutely adored him. Diane and Aimee-Noel were really lovely too and amazing at making the day seem stress free, too! I would definitely recommend
  • Wayfarers Chapel is a great place for a wedding.The grounds are impeccable.The staff are amazing,and the inside of the chapel is incredibly impressive with a storied history dating back nearly seventy years.The building was designed by the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright.And there is usually a waiting list for your ceremony.
  • One of my favorite places in LA County. Great place to meditate.
  • This an amazing space for visiting if you are nearby, it's also a very beautiful place to get married. Awesome view of the shoreline from this glass walls chapel
