To insure the dignity of the wedding ceremony in the Chapel, NO FLASH PICTURES MAY BE TAKEN DURING THE SERVICE. Flash exposures may be taken both before and after the service, while the bride walks down the aisle and during the lighting of the unity candle. Couples should inform their photographer and family members of this policy. Video cameras are welcome in the Chapel when they are placed in a stationary, inconspicuous position.
Smoking: Pilgrim Chapel is a NON SMOKING facility.
Alcohol: Alcoholic beverages may be served, but not sold.
The Chapel can be available on the Wedding Day up to two hours before the scheduled service.
Use of DRIPLESS candles only is permitted. No nails or staples may be used. Only masking tape is permitted, as all other tapes tend to strip paint from the walls. Decorations are to be removed after the wedding and on the same day as the ceremony.
