Do you have cleaning supplies in case there is a spill or mess made?
We have vacuums, brooms, mops and cleaning supplies in the kitchen closet and cabinets.
Do we have to clean and put the chapel back the way we found it?
Just remove excess trash from the building, take down decorations and light broom out. It does not need re-staged exactly how you found it. We will do the detail cleaning and mopping.
Can rental supplies be picked up after the event early the next morning or do they have to be picked up that same night?
No, rental supplies can not be left in the building or on the property till the next morning. They have to be picked up the same night during the rental times on the agreement.
Electrical and Sound System
How do we get power outside?
There is a power outlet on the post under the big maple tree. There is another one on the back porch chapel wall left of the door. There is an additional outlet at the front left of the chapel Richey road entry.
Where is the breaker panel in case a breaker is tripped?
The breaker panel is at the main front entry to the left behind the mirror.
What cables are needed to attach and ipod or microphone to the sound system?
The sound system accepts an auxiliary RCA male jack. Microphones, ipods and other devices will vary so bring a cable that fits your device and has an RCA male jack to plug into the sound system. The free planning hour is a great time to do the preliminary sound check.
Are microphones included with the chapel rental?
The sound system does not have a microphone system. Please bring your own and test it at your planning day. The receiver has a RCA auxiliary input that may work with some microphone systems.
Planning and Rehersal
What days of the week can we schedule our free planning day?
Planning days are Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday 2 or more weeks ahead of the event date.
What days of the week can we schedule our paid rehearsal?
The free rehearsal is generally scheduled on Thursday. Depending on the season the rehearsal can be scheduled 2 to 3 weeks prior on the day prior if it is open.
If someone books a wedding on my planning or rehearsal day will I have to change it?
Yes, all planning and rehearsal days are subject to weddings and will need to be rescheduled should a wedding be booked on the same date and times.
Where do all the cars park for large weddings up to 100 people?
There are approximately 32 spots around the chapel when stacked in.
We recommend additional cars park only on the North side of Church Road. Some parties have used the church further up Church Road as overflow parking and have arranged courtesy shuttles for guests.
