Not all chapels are the same. Some chapels are dated, dark, and have little natural light. That usually means the images are dark, yellow or orange tinted, and/or have lots of flash use. Flash is okay, but it is not as flattering as natural light!

So, if you have been wanting to get married in a wedding chapel, AND want gorgeous images, these are the top three wedding chapels in Chattanooga that I recommend checking out as soon as possible!

Highlands Chapel

This timeless wedding chapel is one of ultimate my very favorites. With a lot of neutral colors indoors AND outdoors, this gives you a high-end-looking wedding and perfect background for wedding photos that keeps the focus on the couple and their specific wedding aesthetic. The contrast of the white shiplap against the blue sky is DREAMY! The mountain views from all three levels are unreal. As if this wedding chapel couldn’t get any better, they also have stunning bridal and groom’s suites for you and your squads to get ready in! Do not even get me started on the chandeliers that are all THROUGHOUT the venue…

Lee University Chapel

Located in the small town of Cleveland, Tennessee, this wedding chapel is one for the books. This chapel features some of the most stunning architecture I have ever seen. It makes for the most epic outdoor photos and portraits! The scale of the steeple with the iron-paned windows makes such a statement in photos. The inside is more traditional, but the architecture and roof is something to admired!
