Sunrise Chapel in Des Moines arose from a 15 year desire to offer a venue for a simple wedding ceremony for the couple who wish to exchange vows in a smaller setting. Our chapel is an alternative to a court house or park setting venue and designed with the concept that less is more.
Our backyard chapel will seat 4 guests in addition to the bride and groom, with standing room for 6. While our concept is a small venue, we can accommodate standing outside for a few guests. All evening ceremonies are by candlelight.
If you are already married, but would like to recreate that special day when you married the love of your life and reignite that spark between you, I do perform vow renewals as well. In weddings and renewals alike, couples are welcome to write their own vows for the ceremony, we can personalize the vow ceremony for both chapel and offsite ceremonies.
In addition, we embrace diversity and welcome LGBTQ to our chapel, all couples are welcome.
