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

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