The Wedding of Your Dreams

Elmhurst’s arboretum campus provides a gorgeous backdrop for photos, while our beautiful chapel offers an elegant venue for your ceremony.

Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel, our primary wedding venue, welcomes guests with a classic redbrick façade set off by a grand limestone colonnade. The interior features rose-tinged Tennessee marble, soaring cathedral ceilings, a center aisle large enough to accommodate a bouffant wedding gown and an abundance of natural light.

  • The Chapel seats up to 800 guests.
  • The stage altar accommodates a group of 70 for smaller ceremonies.
  • The Prayer Chapel offers an intimate setting for up to two.

A nondenominational chapel, Hammerschmidt welcomes marriages between couples of all orientations.

At every step of the way, you’ll enjoy the full support of our friendly, dedicated event services team.
