The Tybee Island Wedding Chapel, a Premier Wedding Venue

The Tybee Island Wedding Chapel, a Premier Wedding Venue for your destination beach wedding awaits to host your special event in their elegant and romantic setting.

Tybee Island Wedding Chapel and Oceanfront Cottage Rentals officially opened the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel June 24, 2011.  The chapel, once a cinematic landmark, repurposed as an elegant destination wedding and special event venue located on a wooded lot just seconds from the beautiful sandy beach.

The wedding chapel was recently renovated to accommodate wedding events and features a bridal parlor, groom's dressing room, classic pews or chiavari chairs, state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, a baby grand piano, full caterer's kitchen and enough tables for 150 festive guests that will be enjoying a delicious coastal cuisine and charming oceanfront accommodations in one of the rental cottages or nearby hotels.

"We're delighted to bring a romantic new wedding venue to Tybee Island," said Stacye Jarrell, owner and founder of Tybee Island Wedding Chapel and Oceanfront Cottage Rentals. "The chapel is a beautiful venue visitors and event professionals can choose when they decide to make Tybee Island their event destination."

Since its soft opening in April 2011, the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel has booked over 50 weddings and it is already receiving many high marks, including upcoming features in The Knot and Wedding Magazine.

"It was a moment of pure chance when I decided to acquire the chapel for an event venue," said Jarrell. "The idea was to help further opportunity on the island and remind our regional beach-lovers that Tybee Island is the perfect setting for their destination wedding."

For more information about the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel or to arrange a site visit or tour, please visit Tybee Wedding Chapel or call 912-786-0054 or 800-786-5889.
