We are pleased that you are considering the Aspen Chapel for one of the most significant occasions in your life. Each wedding is unique and we strive to make your ceremony both a joyful and spiritual celebration.


Wedding ceremonies are held in the Chapel Sanctuary or in the Garden.  If you are planning an outdoor wedding away from the Chapel, you may reserve the Chapel as a backup in case of inclement weather.  If the Chapel is used as the location for your wedding, the backup fee will be credited toward the total cost.

Pastoral Consultation 

Our minister, Nicholas Vesey, is an ordained Episcopalian priest that is well versed in many wisdom traditions and can offer a traditional wedding service or customize an inter-faith wedding service for couples at the Chapel or away. 
The Chapel honors all wedding couples who want to join in matrimony whether you use our minister or your own officiate.  To meet with Nicholas, please email:
