Wedding Chapel Grand Rapids MI
Whether you’re planning a large wedding or small, East Congregational United Church of Christ (“East Church”) is the perfect place to celebrate your marriage with family and friends.
East Church sanctuary
Our sanctuary is the perfect site for your wedding, big or small. Its design is elegant, traditional, and inviting. You will find natural wood carvings, a rising arched ceiling, and beautiful stained glass windows designed in Chartres, France.
The sanctuary seats 400 guests on the main floor and can accommodate up to 120 more in the balcony. Processing down the center aisle toward the beautiful altar is an emotional experience for many couples.
Step into this beautiful space and feel yourself transported to Europe. And then, remember that you are still in West Michigan. People comment again and again: “I didn’t know a small wedding venue this beautiful existed in Grand Rapids.”
Gothic architecture, lovely stained glass, and an intimate setting make this chapel perfect for weddings of 70 guests or fewer. A small balcony houses a pipe organ and an upright piano is also available.
This space is scheduled early, so come for a tour and ask to see Klise Chapel—it really is a must-see!
