Weddings

A Perfect Setting

Weddings at St. Paul's Chapel, South Salem, NY.

Weddings at St. Paul’s Chapel, South Salem, NY.

It’s been called ‘a Victorian jewel-box,’ and the rustic cedar-shingled exterior of St. Paul’s  Chapel, the site of countless joyful weddings since it opened its doors in 1899, only hints at the reason why. Inside, warm oaken woodwork will surround your wedding ceremony with a  sense of timeless serenity, while magnificent stained glass windows bathe everyone in  rainbows of color as they watch you walk down the aisle.

A Perfect Welcome

We extend a welcome to all, regardless of religious affiliation. You may rent the Chapel for a  service of your own design, with your own officiant. Or if you plan an inter-faith celebration, the Chapel offers a place where all traditions are honored. If you are a member of the  Episcopal Church and desire a ceremony according to the Rites of the Book of Common Prayer, you are most welcome as well.
