Weddings at St.John’s Chuch


Weddings at St. John’s Church, South Salem, NY.

Weddings at St. Paul’s Chapel


Weddings at St. Paul’s Chapel, Vista, NY.

It’s been called ‘a Victorian jewel-box,’ and the rustic cedar-shingled exterior of St. Paul’s  Chapel, the site of countless joyful weddings since it opened its doors in 1899, only hints at the reason why. Inside, warm oaken woodwork will surround your wedding ceremony with a  sense of timeless serenity, while magnificent stained glass windows bathe everyone in  rainbows of color as they watch you walk down the aisle.


We extend a welcome to all, regardless of religious affiliation. You may rent the Chapel for a  service of your own design, with your own officiant. Or if you plan an inter-faith celebration, the Chapel offers a place where all traditions are honored. If you are a member of the  Episcopal Church and desire a ceremony according to the Rites of the Book of Common Prayer, you are most welcome as well.

The Gothic details and antique reed organ give the feeling of bygone times.


St. Paul’s Chapel is easily reached from anywhere in Westchester County, and is minutes  from Ridgefield, New Canaan and other Fairfield County, CT towns as well as Putnam County,  NY. New York City is little more than an hour away.


Stained glass windows in the style of Lamb Studios have been lovingly restored.
