Just attended a wedding at the chapel. Gorgeous site overlooking the Pacific. The chapel is beautiful and a picture perfect place to get married. The staff was very helpful arranging the ceremony. Nice spot surrounded by trees. Definitely the place in SoCal for a wedding. Highly recommend.

When you walk into the church it is so simple yet beautiful. A true building made of glass with a simple fountain... More

One of the most beautiful oceans views along the Pacific Coast Highway - the Wayfarers Chapel which also has a lovely wedding chapel, beautiful rose gardens and a quiet retreat away from the busy cities of Southern California. We really enjoyed the views of the Pacific ocean and a few moments of quiet. I would definitely recommend a stop here... More

I was married in the chapel so may be biased, but it is really the most lovely place with great views. It only takes a few minutes, so if you are close, it's worth it.

Attended a friend's wedding at this beautiful chapel. What a special place. Do try to visit the chapel if you are in the area. It is quite busy with weddings on the weekend, so perhaps stop in during the week or call to see when it is available for visiting.
