If Tlaquepaque is an oasis in the midst of Sedona’s bustle, the Chapel is an oasis of serenity within Tlaquepaque. Styled as a private chapel, like those adjoining the far-flung haciendas of Old Mexico where a visiting friar or priest would offer services, the Chapel is the perfect place for a truly intimate wedding. Looking through the intricate, wrought iron gates it is easy to be transported into another day and time. The giant, antique doors are flung wide beneath the carved Spanish-style arched doorway of the non-denominational Chapel. The stained glass windows set high into authentic whitewashed adobe walls enhance the hand-carved wooden and leather pews, attractive tiled floor and a spectacular hand painted mural over the altar, all resonate with the loving care that built the chapel over 30 years ago. The Tlaquepaque Chapel was build by Abe Miller as a place of meditation and the chapel made our village complete.
While 30 people can be comfortably seated in pews, additional chairs can be set up in the back for a maximum seating capacity of 45. At the completion of each wedding ceremony the bells in the Tlaquepaque bell tower will ring in celebration and commemoration of your special day.
Each reservation is 90 minutes with the first allocation 5:00pm – 6:30pm. The wedding party is allowed one hour for the ceremony and an additional 30 minutes for set up or guest arrival with a suggested ceremony start time of 5:30pm. Tlaquepaque will provide a custodian for the entire 90 minutes to attend the gated doorway and ensure your privacy. He or she will also see to it that the wedding peal from the bell tower begins right at the conclusion of the ceremony.
It is the responsibility of the booking party to have all personal items (i.e. candles, floral arrangements, music boxes, decorations of any sort) removed from the Chapel at the end of the 90 minutes. We will then clean any flower petals or other items from the Chapel. Fresh rose petals are allowed inside the chapel; only silk rose petals allowed in the Chapel courtyard.
Reservations need to be made in advance and must be paid in full including the refundable security deposit in order to hold and guarantee any reservation. The fees are as follows:
Tlaquepaque requires an additional refundable security deposit of $300.00 for a valid reservation. Upon completion of the service, the security deposit will be refunded and mailed back within 72 hours. It is the responsibility of the wedding party to make certain that Tlaquepaque has an accurate return address for the security deposit.
