WOODLAND CHAPEL

bride webMature oaks form the canopy of the woods, along with hundreds of other trees. A harmonious blend of forest woodland and Organic Modern architecture offers a welcoming environment for you and your guests.

The outdoor area offers an exquisite natural landscape to complement the indoor amenities. Your event will be enhanced by the sights and sounds of nature, such as dappled sunlight filtering through the trees, leaves rustling in a gentle breeze, and birds chirping. A lively creek and simple footpaths, run through the forest.

Inside the Organic Modern building you’ll find clean design and subtle, earth-tone colors, showcasing the simple or complex design theme of your event.

The largest room in the building serves as a sanctuary or ballroom. Its south wall, made completely of glass, looks onto the woods. It also opens to a deck patio and lawn. An optional gazebo is available for weddings or other events. Seating for 100 is modifiable. Banquet tables and padded chairs can be arranged as you like for smaller or larger events, or to allow for a dance floor.

Adjacent to the sanctuary, a gathering room features couches, a fireplace, and round tables with comfortable seating. Total seating for this room is up to 20 people. A wall of doors allows this room to be joined with the sanctuary.

A full kitchen is available, featuring commercial-grade stove, refrigerator/freezer, dish-washer. In addition, it offers a microwave, pots/pans, dishes, cups, flatware, utensils and serving trays.

Everyone present was so at home in your beautiful building. I could not imagine a more perfect setting for our event.  — Joan

My parents were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary and we wanted my daughter (who is a Christian minister) to officiate the ceremony. My parents are Catholic and their church frowned on a service not officiated by a Catholic priest so we chose to have the ceremony at the Unitarian Universalist church in Park Forest. They accommodated us perfectly. It was an incredible blessing to see my parents renew their vows as my daughter officiated a ceremony we put together for them on our own. The musical director, Chris Ussery, played several songs on the piano that were my mother’s favorites and we displayed a slide show of their 60 years of being together. The back ground of the wooded area that surrounds the church was stunning. It could not have been more perfect!! –Diane
