Testimonials



“Having our ceremony at the UMD Memorial Chapel was lovely. The inside of the Chapel is beautiful! From our initial tour to email correspondence, we knew this was a special venue to hold our ceremony. The staff is extremely helpful, timely, and professional. My husband and I were very pleased!”

 


“The Memorial Chapel at UMCP was a great option for us since we are both alumni of the school! Pictures came out great, our day-of coordinator was super helpful and accommodating. The staff  were also very responsive throughout the planning process via email and they answered all our questions! Great acoustics if you're looking to have live music too!!”

 


“I was so happy to have the chapel as my wedding venue. The inside was gorgeous! The long isle was stunning and made for such a dramatic entrance. :) We were assigned a coordinator for our rehearsal and wedding; she was great. She asked all the right questions and made it so the chapel was set up to fit our personal wedding. It really helped A LOT to have her there!”

 


“The Memorial Chapel was a symbolic location to hold our wedding, as we met at the University of Maryland as students. All of the staff was tremendous to work with and always tried to do their best. We wish there would have been more time allotted between weddings to assist with ensuring all family pictures could have been completed in the Chapel. As we were leaving, the next couple was coming in and already starting to set up. I would highly recommend this vendor to other couples who are looking for a beautiful non-denominational venue!”

 


“UMD Memorial Chapel made the planning process extremely easy. They reached out to me on many occasions before I had to even think about reaching out to them. As a bride, there are a lot of details to remember, people to contact, timelines to follow-- and UMD made that extremely easy for me.”

 


“Absolutely loved working with the staff at University of Maryland's Memorial Chapel. The chapel itself is massive, with cathedral ceilings and seating for up to 1100! We only had 100 and it was still beautiful and didn't feel too big. I planned my wedding from Atlanta, and the staff was extremely responsive via email and phone. They were very prepared with all the information I needed for my denomination (it's a non-denominational chapel) and really helped make sure I was fully prepared for the ceremony. The day of coordinator was SO patient with us and was ready with all the 'accessory' items we needed (stands, candles, lights, mics, etc). They even offer discounts for winter weddings and alumni, so it was a very reasonably price!”

 


“The staff at the Memorial Chapel did a SPECTACULAR job on our wedding ceremony!!!

 

The chapel was decorated beautifully with our decorations and the decorations that the Chapel allows weddings to use like the candelabras, unity candle, columns to hold flower vases, etc. Plus, the chapel staff was so friendly and attentive.

Most of all, we would like to thank Janice and Denise for being so helpful and understanding while we were in the planning process of this wedding. Their advice really made it easier to plan for this special day.

The Chapel is all white with red carpet and drapes which made my wedding colors, Meadow Green & Champagne Gold, pop!!! We could not have asked for a better location for our wedding ceremony!!”


“Memorial Chapel is an absolutely beautiful venue, especially if the University of Maryland is a special place to you. Both my husband and I went there, so when we got engaged, the Chapel was really the only venue we considered. It is beautiful; the staff are courteous and responsive. As for me and my husband, the chapel was absolutely perfect, the photos are beautiful and we have zero regrets!

 


“All the staff were very kind. Our wedding day was perfect and the venue had everything we needed.”

 


“The employees that work for the chapel at University of Maryland provide exceptional customer service, and always willing to go the extra mile to make your day memorable.”


“Memorial chapel is a great venue to have a wedding at. It is beautiful inside and out. A little pricey, but normal for University venues. The staff was very informative and helpful.”
