About Lee Chapel

The quiet dignity and simplicity of Lee Chapel, with its historical connections to the University family and the surrounding community, makes it a perfect setting for a wedding. Weddings are scheduled year-round on Saturdays and Sundays, although we will consider other days. A two and a half hour period is reserved for the wedding date and rehearsals are scheduled in one hour increments on Friday and Saturday evenings prior to the wedding. Some weekends are reserved strictly for University, please call ahead to confirm these weekends. The Chapel is a charming Romanesque style structure that is deceptively small in its appearance; it has hosted both very large and extremely intimate weddings. It is an elegant space in which to be married. With its arched leaded glass windows, decorative wall sconces and reserved beauty, it requires little decoration. The main floor of the Lee Chapel auditorium can accommodate about 350 guests comfortably, with a maximum capacity of 400. The balcony is off limits to guests except for major University events (Freshman Orientation, Homecoming, convocations, Alumni Reunion). Access to the balcony is permitted for musicians and photographers.
