Venue Type

Juliette Chapel is, you guessed it, a chapel style wedding venue with a reception building right next door making everything so conveniently in one place.

DIY or All Inclusive?

Juliette Chapel is a do-it-yourselfers dream wedding venue allowing you to rent the grounds for the day and they do not require you to book any of their preferred vendors. Although they do have an extensive list of preferred vendors, like us (Grizzle Photography and Video), on their website.

Ceremony Locations

There is one main ceremony location, the Chapel. It’s simple, yet elegant on the inside with large glass doors/windows throughout. It is climate controlled and you don’t have to worry about bad weather ruining your ceremony.

One other ceremony location that we’ve seen used is outside on the lawn. If your heart is set on having an outdoor wedding, this is always an option.

Reception Space

Juliette Chapel’s reception space is conveniently located right next door to the chapel. The space is shaped as a long rectangle with giant glass doors on one side and a small kitchen, bathrooms, and bridal suite on the other side. Have a look at the wedding films at the end of this article for more ideas on how this reception space can be arranged.

The Bridal Suite

Juliette Chapel’s bridal suite is a cozy little space just inside the reception hall where the bride and her maids can get ready and chill while they await the ceremony.

Where do the groomsmen get ready?

Typically the groomsmen arrive to this venue dressed and ready for pictures. There really isn’t a dedicated space here for the groomsmen to get ready.

Coordinating the arrival of the groom and keeping him out of site of the bride is critical here as the grounds aren’t very large and both the chapel and reception hall are filled with big glass doors that you can easily see through. If we are booked for your wedding we can definitely help coordinate this.

Photo Locations

The Juliette Chapel has one of the prettiest golden hours for taking those glowing wedding pictures. Those golden rays filter through those westward facing trees and beautifully backlight the bride and groom as you’ll see in some of the photos below.

Of course you’ve got some great photo opportunities in front of and inside the chapel itself. And if you have a photographer who is great with artificial lighting, Juliette Chapel is a great place for capturing breath-taking nighttime photos! You can see examples of all of these below!

Rain Backup Plan

One of the best things about Juliette Chapel is that you don’t need to compe up with a rain backup plan for your ceremony. The chapel is an indoor, climate controlled venue.

Now, many people do like to have outdoor activities for their reception; cocktails, games, mingling, ect. And in this case, if you do have bad weather, you do have an indoor space that you can congregate in.

Management and Staff

The owner of the Julitte Chapel, Kathleen, is one of the nicest persons we’ve ever met and she will certainly help you get your dream wedding booked here. However, there is typically no Juliette Chapel staff there on the day of your wedding. You can hire, or not hire, whomever you wish to help carry out your wedding day plans.
