Beyond beautiful location and setting. The church itself is such a great experience, especially on a sunny day. Our wedding was April 2015 and it was a great time of year to visit. It gets a little warm in the church in the afternoon, but the sun shining in is beautiful. Well worth a visit even if you are not... More

Beautiful chapel surrounded by lush trees, plants, flowers, lawn and views of Catalina Island in the distance. Docents and a gift shop help make this a memorable visit.

Such a lovely setting directly across Pacific Coast Highway from Abalone Cove State Beach. Large glass windows surround the structure and allow beautiful natural light to illuminate this space. Lloyd-Wright designed the chapel. The small chapel seats about 100 people and can be rented for Weddings, funerals, etc.

After a hike at Abalone Cove our hiking group visited the Chapel. It was the highlight of my day; a peaceful, restful, quite spot of great beauty. The gardens/trees were perfectly manicured and the small chapel is quite stunning (designed by the son of Frank Lloyd Wright). The Bells in the tower sound every 15 minutes. For a few minutes...

Worth a stop, just for the views. Serene and peaceful and beautiful. I've been visiting Wayfarers for many years. A friend was married here in a gorgeous ceremony, and was very happy with the services provided.

My wife and I were married at this beautiful place in June. It's small, elegant & views that can not be beat. I would not have chosen any other place to exchange our vows. The staff was very helpful through the process and the ceremony was beautiful. If you're looking to have a large ceremony this place most likely won't... More

We used to visit this spot frequently when we lived in the area over 40 years ago. It hasn't changed much over tha time. On a recent family get together, we stopped again. It's a great spot for pictures and to spend some peaceful time. It's just a beautiful spot and small chapel with a great view of the ocean.... More

This is a neighborhood small chapel. Most of the visitors come here for non-religious reason. This chapel locates at a beautiful location over see the ocean, the cliffs, and the beautiful coastlines. Many people choose to have wedding ceremony here. In the weekends, there may be some wedding ceremony going on there. When there is no on-going event, you may... More

No matter what your religion, you need to make a stop this magical place at some point in your lifetime. The views are breathtaking and the church itself is an amazing piece of architecture. Best place in the world to get married. I've also been there for Sunday mass and it very lovely. The gardens are gorgeous. There is nothing... More

This small, lovely chapel has many great features if you know what you are seeing. Of course, first and foremost, this is a house of God. Anyone who would rate this as "Terrible" has no sense of propriety. We are not particularly religious, but respect those who are and enjoy visiting God's house in places around the world. Besides, it... More
