Photo: @alyssafisherphotoFollow Them On Insta Imagine your ceremony in a chapel that captures the best of both indoor charm and the beauty of the countryside. The gracious open-air arches welcome the breezes flowing over 100 acres of rolling hills and beautiful sunsets.

The stained glass in the front entryway and in the steeple add to the charm. Would you like to hear lovely church bells ringing through the countryside as your ceremony is about to begin?
