Very pretty coastal drive to get there. Views are amazing. Chapel is small, very serene. Have taken visitors from out of state here, really enjoyed taking pictures of the ocean views.

This glass church is beautiful and is guaranteed to take your breath away. The view of the ocean is stunning as well. This venue has been featured in so many movies and T.V. shows and I'm sure you will recognize it when you see it.

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.
