Chapel Wedding

Wedding Chapel

The Chapel

Our lovely stone chapel, based on the Porziuncola, The Little Church of St. Francis in Assisi, Italy, offers an intimate and deeply inspiring atmosphere for your wedding or vow renewal ceremony. It seats 50 people, perfect for a small wedding and for those closest to you. Nature is seen on all sides through the beautiful stained-glass windows. The chapel is simple, yet elegant.

Surrounding the wedding chapel are expansive gardens, stone terraces, ponds, and fountains, which add to the romantic European feel of Crystal Hermitage. Bordering our gardens are spectacular views of the Northern California Sierra Nevada foothills, with vistas reaching all the way to the base of the Yuba River valley. Both the wedding chapel and gardens offer unique photo opportunities for your wedding party.

Sample Vows:

Dear Beloved,
I will be true to you as I pray always to be true to God. I will love you without condition,
as I would be loved by you and as we are ever loved by God.
I will never compete with you; I will cooperate for our own, and for all others’ highest good.

I will forgive you always, and under all circumstances.
I will respect your right to see truth as you perceive it,
and to be guided as you feel deeply within yourself.
May our love grow ever deeper, purer, more expansive, until, in our perfected love,
we find the perfect love of God.
