Can you really get married here?
You betcha! The Chapel is available for ceremonies during regular mall hours, 362 days a year. Our ceremonies are performed by local, seminary trained, ordained, ministers.. Photography, videography, and flowers are also available. It's a fantastic place to elope in Minnesota, a destination wedding spot!
How many ceremonies have you performed?
Since opening on April 15, 1994, the Chapel has performed over 7,000 ceremonies, including vow renewals for 1st to 50th anniversaries. Our chapel, as well as our wedding ceremonies, provide a very traditional experience, however, we do customize our ceremonies to create a unique ceremony to reflect different personalities. This flexibility draws in couples who want a personalized, creative ceremony.
How far ahead do you need to book your wedding?
Minnesota state law requires 5 days to procure a license, so most of our ceremonies are booked well in advance. Out of state couples can have this waiting period waived, allowing them to book their wedding immediately. The shortest time between booking and performing a ceremony has been about 30 minutes. Most of our clients book their ceremonies, 2-4 weeks in advance. We are able to book wedding up to one year in advance of your special date.
Do you sell out on popular days?
We can accommodate up to 12 ceremonies during our normal business hours, so we are rarely completely booked. We do, however, sell our prime Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons to wedding parties well in advance. Almost fifty percent of our weddings schedule the ceremony the month in which it will occur. Special numeric dates and Valentine's Day do have a tendency to book up in advance, however, if our normal business hours book completely, we will extend hours to accommodate additional weddings. On Valentine's Day, in 1998, we performed 21 ceremonies!
Do you marry only Minnesota residents?
CHAPEL OF LOVE is pleased to be host to couples from all over the United States, and has performed ceremonies for couples from as far away as Japan and Saudi Arabia. It is one of the most affordable wedding locations in Minnesota.
What are the smallest and largest weddings you can accommodate?
In the CHAPEL OF LOVE location, our smallest chapel wedding, priced from $249 to $349, is for the wedding couple and up to 12 guests. Our largest in Chapel wedding, costs $399 to $499 and is for the wedding couple and up to 35 guests. For those who want a "quickie" wedding without a ceremony, we offer a License Signing package, at a cost of $100 or $150. Chapel of Love is not limited to it's own chapel. If you have acquired a larger space for your wedding, that is within the Metro area, Chapel of Love can still assist you with your ceremony. Our Weddings-to-Go package offers several options for just an officiant, or a combination of an officiant and coordinator, to come to your location. Since each wedding is unique, please refer to "Weddings-to-Go" in our "Wedding Packages" section on this site.
Can people that don't get married in the Chapel shop in its Bridal Boutique?
At the CHAPEL OF LOVE, our Bridal Boutique serves not only our wedding clients, but brides and their families from all over the world. CHAPEL OF LOVE staff has carefully selected a huge assortment of unique wedding-related boutique items and continues to comb the world for unusual and elegant wedding accessories.
How do your photography packages work?
The CHAPEL OF LOVE does not allow other professional photographers or select camera equipment in the chapel, because the chapel is actually the portrait studio of Mosaic images. Our team of professional photographers offer incredible value and quality. Check our Photo Packages for more information. Please contact Chapel of Love, if you want to know if your camera is restricted.
Are your ministers available to marry couples at other locations?
Our Weddings-To-Go Packages are perfect for couples who would rather choose their own personalized location within the Metro area. Whether you just want an officiant, or a coordinator and a minister, we can assist you to provide the perfect ceremony.
