Attended a Wedding

Attended a wedding that was lovely. The chapel is quaint and beautiful. It was the perfect size for a small wedding not too cramped.

If you are on the TWU campus it is worth stopping and checking it out. Not sure how this is making the top rating or the rave reviews. Much of the restoration work deteriorated from the experience IMO. Still if you are there it is worth seeing for a few minutes and getting a few good pictures.

Little Chapel in the Woods is on the campus of Texas Woman's University. Built in 1939 it is still in perfect shape. Beautiful stained glass and a little staircase to the balcony. Lots of weddings are performed here. A must see if you are visiting Denton, TX! Free to visit.

Old stone chapel in the woods. Now featuring air conditioning. You will have great memories if you choose this for your wedding. Lots of parking nearby. Quaint. Not too big, not too small. For the unpretentious wedding planners.

The wait was very long and the food was bad. It was a wedding party so of course it was slower than it probably ever was.

The Little Chapel is nestled in a beautiful, natural setting on TWU's campus. It is a favorite area for professional and amateur photographers alike to snap wedding, prom and senior pictures. Different settings are clustered within close proximity- there's a pond with a bridge, a rustic rocky trail, tall trees with lush clearings, etc. We took senior pictures and promo... More

It's just a tiny little place, built by CCC work crews during the Depression and decorated by Texas Woman's University's art students, but it is beguiling. Famed architect O'Neil Ford designed the building, so if you are an aficionado of architecture, you will appreciate his use of native materials and colors in his design. This chapel is located on the... More

The Little Chapel in the Woods is located on the campus of Texas Woman's University. It is just inside the entrance and does not require any special permissions to visit. The church is quaint and beautiful with many architectural details. It sits in a slightly wooded area just of the parking lot. Looking like a set from a wedding movie,... More

Beautiful little church right smack on the grounds of the university. I was expecting it to be a little more secluded.
