Elopement Chapel Weddings

This option is available through July 28. The chapel will close, but I will continue to officiate weddings on location in WV and OH.

* A WV Marriage License is required for all chapel ceremonies. You may obtain a marriage license from any county in the state of WV, regardless of your in-state or out-of-state residency. Marriage Licenses are good for 60 days from the date of issuance.

Call or Text 740-525-6974 to schedule a ceremony or use the contact form below.

***** I am closing the chapel at the end of July. I will still perform these services but will meet couples at select locations.

***** If you have contacted me without a response, please call or text the number above or send a message to movwedding@gmail.com. Due to a website issue, I haven’t received most of my contact forms for months. (I just discovered it 5/20/2022.)

Chapel Location

My chapel is located at 531 Market Street, on the corners of Sixth and Market Streets. I am the last office on the Market Street side. The railroad trestle is on the Sixth Street side of my building. There is a yellow mural on the Sixth Street side of the building too. You’ll also see a concrete planter with small bushes in front of my door. The numbers 531 are on the door. There are posters in the windows that face Market Street. 

The doors open 15 minutes prior to the scheduled ceremony. Please call no later than your scheduled appointment if you know that you will be late to see if I have availability. (I often have more than one ceremony in a day, sometimes in multiple locations.)

Décor

I’ve changed the décor for 2022! Shades of blush, peach, and pink with green leaves create a beautiful backdrop for your wedding-day photos.
