Dear Wedding Couple,
Thank you for considering Evelyn Chapel on the Illinois Wesleyan University Campus for your wedding ceremony. Below are the steps you need to follow to schedule your wedding.
1. Complete the Application There is a wedding regulations and wedding application linked as a PDF file at the bottom of this page. Read the Information and Regulations carefully. Complete the form and send it with your deposit to Evelyn Chapel. The address is at the bottom of the form. You can check the wedding calendar on this website for available days and times. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. My contact information is below.
2. You will receive a confirmation letter from me indicating your wedding has been scheduled, deposit received, fees yet to be paid and the date they are due.
Please feel free to stop by the Chapel and look at the space: sanctuary, bridal party waiting room, entry way, worship furniture. If the building is open and the space not being used, you are welcome to look around. If you would like to schedule a time to view the space, please contact me.
Dates without the application and payment cannot be held. We receive many wedding inquiries making it necessary for the application and deposit to be submitted in order to get your wedding day and time on the schedule.
Please, do not, make any other reservations (band, reception hall, etc.) until you receive your confirmation letter.
Please note that there have been changes to the times in which weddings may be booked, rental fees, and building decorum. You are encouraged to read these sections of the application’s rules and regulations very carefully.
As soon as your wedding date is confirmed, it is important that you contact your clergy person. Usually three or four meetings are required for adequate preparation for the ceremony.
Please note that only acoustic speaking and music is used at Evelyn. Microphones are not necessary or available in this room. Music options include acoustic instruments and/or voice: organ, piano, string ensemble, guitar, flute, trumpet, etc. Use of CD’s and speakers is not permitted.
Evelyn Chapel provides you with a wedding coordinator who will contact you a month before your wedding, work with you and your wedding party at the rehearsal, and be sure your wedding runs smoothly before, during and after the ceremony.
If you should have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me at the Chapel.
Rev. Elyse Nelson Winger
