Going to the chapel of love

Love the idea of getting married in a church? We'll help you narrow down your options.

So you want to get married in a church?

Seems like that should be as easy as finding a beautiful chapel in the perfect location, giving the church secretary a call, and booking your date. 

Unfortunately, it's not that easy. Many churches in Charlotte require a couple be members of the congregation for a least a year before being allowed to rent their facilities. Several of Charlotte's most beautiful houses of worship, like Myers Park United Methodist and Sharon Presbyterian Church, have such guidelines in place.

Don't stress just yet, though! There are plenty of churches in the area who open their doors to non-members. Check out the options below:

 First UMC Charlotte // 501 N. Tryon St.

 First Baptist Charlotte // 301 S. Davidson St. 

 St. Mary's Chapel // 1129 E. Third St. 

 St. Peter's Episcopal Church // 115 W. Seventh St.

 Belk Chapel at Queen's University // 1900 Selwyn Ave.

About Hannah

There are few things Hannah loves more than Southern charm, classic Ray Ban aviators, a string of pearls, and Sunday afternoons. An admirer of all things lovely and especially the written word, she put her English degree to good use after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill and moved to Charleston where she dove head first into the journalism scene, covering everything from boutique openings to café launches. But the Old North State (and a fiancé of her own) called her back home and now she’s using her experience, creativity and knowledge to write about what she loves most—love.
