Lakewood’s historic chapel has been a beautiful and popular space for weddings in Minneapolis. Many couples have had memorable ceremonies here.

The chapel is available for weddings on a limited number of Friday and Saturday evenings during the spring, summer and early fall. There is a fee and attendance capacity is limited (due to the size of the interior).
