Chapel Weddings

Mid-Ohio Valley Wedding Chapel

Services and Fees

Ordained Minister Licensed to Officiate Weddings in West Virginia and Ohio

I offer a variety of pre-written ceremonies. Simply choose the chapel and ceremony that works best for your occasion. Hours are currently by appointment. I will resume office hours in the future. Because I officiate weddings at other locations, contact me in advance to schedule weddings outside my regular office hours. My tiny chapel is small and elegantly decorated and can accommodate up to four guests. For weddings that include 5 – 35 guests, the bigger, micro-wedding chapel is available by appointment. Same-day weddings are often an option. If paying with cash, please bring the correct amount for your service. I am often available for short-notice and same-day weddings. Contact me at 740-525-6974 for details. Prices below are for tiny chapel and micro chapel weddings. Please click here for weddings on location. The Mid-Ohio Valley Wedding Chapel is located on the first floor at 531 Market Street in downtown Parkersburg, WV.
