  • Great place and good experience for Lloyd Wright fans. You can park nearby and enjoy the view. There is a gift shop too. Very clean and organized. I loved this place.
  • This church has amazing veiws and the grounds and gardens are incredible. Perfect location for your religious event . Weddings, baptisms, and memorials. I stopped by on a rare day that there was no events and was able to spend some quality quiet time walking around with my family.
  • My husband and I got married here and it was absolutely breathtaking. This chapel will always have a special place in our hearts.
  • 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.
  • WAYFARES CHAPEL ALSO KNOWN AS THE GLASS CHURCH IS LOCATED ON THE CLIFFS ABOVE THE PACIFIC OCEAN WITH TOWERING REDWOODS AND FLOWERING GARDENS..IT WAS BUILT BY THE ARCHITECT LlYOD WRIGHT...A SITE OF SEVERAL CELEBRITY WEDDINGS...I HAVE BEEN HERE FOR TWO WEDDING VENUES AND IT'S ONE PRETTIEST CHURCH'S I HAVE EVER SEEN...IT HAS BECOME A FAMOUS TOURIST ATTRACTION....
