First to Review

Built almost entirely of glass on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, soaring Redwoods partly surround it. It is open to the public but if you go on a weekend, you may be unable to enter the chapel because of its popularity as a wedding site. Even so, if a weekend is the only time you can go - go. The exterior view of the chapel is worth it.

This is a small chapel on a small piece of land, but there are places where you can go on the property to see the Pacific. Worth coming to see, but you probably won't spend much time here.

It's a gorgeous place to have a wedding! I didn't know about this place prior to my friends' wedding but it is wonderful. It was recently featured on an episode of Revenge, masquerading as a chapel in the Hamptons. The surrounding trees give it an air of tranquility being surrounded by nature and the elements. The chapel welcomes all people and religions.

This place is magical and Gorgeous! I don't believe I need to write much as allllllll my pictures will do it more justice!

I discovered this place after seeing it in movies and t.v and I immediately researched it and was pleasantly surprised to discover it was in L.a! Wayfarers is located along a cliff across the road from a local small park and beach, so the view is definitely beautiful! The whole area is smaller then expected but the workmanship on the gardens and actual chapel part is absolutely breathtaking! We actually laid out a sheet and took a little nap in the garden off to the side while we waited for friends to arrive. Inside the Chapel the light reflects throughout and the energy is serene with a touch of unspoken magic. People sit quietly and smile politely at the many people milling about trying to take their perfect photo. Considering the beauty of this little gem, I highly doubt it is possible to take bad picture of the place!

I've seen pictures of this Chapel set up for Jewish, Indian and Catholic/Christian weddings, so don't be afraid to have your wedding here!

They also have a small visitors center with odds and ends to buy and restrooms to use!

Please come here at least once in your life! You won't regret it!

Holy crap, this place is BEAUTIFUL.

My friend had her wedding here this past weekend and it was like you're stepping in a movie scene, The arch looks like it's outdoors but it's really encased in glass and protects you from the cold and rain.

The view from the place was also gorgeous. People are allowed to walk but they shut off some parts for the wedding "Private event"

CEREMONY:
Seriously beautiful and there are different doors to go through to the chapel. The bride had to go back into the chapel for photos and went through the other door to avoid the guests.

The lighting was perfect.

This chapel seriously looks like its in a Lord of the Rings movie. Very beautiful and classy.

BATHROOMS:
Only two stalls for the ladies restroom

PARKING:
Tons

OVERALL: This would be a great choice if you were getting married in this area. My friend's reception was in Santa Monica - an hour away but she rented a bus to take people to and from there, but she loved it that much to have it be an hour away.

The view is breathtaking.

Went here for a wedding of a friend of a friend. I don't know how much it costs to rent, but I'm sure it's a lot considering you are in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Very small but beautiful chapel to have your service at, whether wedding or funeral. I could see both being done here. It's by the ocean, and the chapel itself is more of an open type structure rather than a building.

An amazingly beautiful little chapel right above the ocean. If you're passing by or looking for an architectural excuse to visit Palos Verdes, you have to stop by.
