Chapel on the Hill Los Gatos: Bride + Groom
This is one of my favorite wedding venues because of how small the grounds are. Getting ready, ceremony, portraits, and reception are all in the same place, and it's easy to walk around. It's located in the Santa Cruz mountains, surrounded by tall evergreen trees. The beautiful a-frame wood chapel is quaint and sweet, great for an intimate ceremony.
This location is just 30 minutes from downtown San Jose and 15 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz, which makes it the perfect destination wedding location. Stay and play in Santa Cruz!
The chapel was built with bare hands in 1954 and opened to the public in 1955. The owner, a retired minister, wanted to give a gift to travelers so they could pray and meditate. Weddings were often held there. Now, the house is available for the bridal party to get ready in, and there's a large concrete pad where tables are set up for the reception.
