Photography Nazis! – If you want anyone other than their photographer to take photos at your ceremony, go somewhere else! They will not allow guests or anyone else take photos during the ceremony. I wanted to get married here but I'm going elsewhere so that I can use the photographer I've already booked. If you are in the market for a one stop shop that includes everything they have it, but you have to use the people they have contracts with.
THUMBS DOWN! – No where on the web site does it state you can't take your own photos. When I asked why, I was told that it interfers with the video being made. When I asked why didn't their photographer's camera interfer with the video, she walked off without answering. My daughters matron of honor and I were in the bridal dressing room when the photographer walked in an told both of us that we needed to go sit down, it was time for the ceremony to start. She didn't ask if we were with the wedding party, just TOLD us to leave. When my dauther told her that I was walking her down the isle and her mother-in-law to be was her matron of honor, she didn't bother to apologize, just once again walked away. The ceremony was beautiful and the minister was a 10+. I don't think I've ever witnessed a minister perform a more beautiful ceremony. But..............for many this is a speacial moment in their family's life, a moment where they want special photos for memories. Photos of the Best Man putting on the Groom's boutonniere, the mother of the Bride helping her with her dress, the father of the Bride giving his daughter a kiss before giving her away. etc. If you're wanting these types of photos......don't go here! These people, excluding the minister, are very rude. You are herded in like cattle, as you enter, the wedding before you is just walking out the back and as you leave a wedding is walking in on you. Photos outside were impossible because the next wedding guests and party are all outside taking photos. After reading other reviews about other bride's photos and video, I'm dreading seeing my daughters. LOOK FOR ANOTHER CHAPEL!!!!!! Be sure to Google for other reviews on this chapel!
