Autumn in the Chapel Garden

Autumn Chapel

Autumn in the Chapel Garden

Autumn is especially charming in the Old Towne Grove chapel garden.  Pears and apples hang heavy in the  orchard surrounding this petite wedding chapel.  The marigolds are on their last burst of bloom before frost claims them.  Cooler temperatures have turned the leaves on the surrounding trees golden and the crab apples bright red. Autumn isn’t the most popular season for weddings.  The weather is by nature untrustworthy.  But the mellow light and jewel-tone colors decorate to the dictates of the most discerning bride.  If the temperatures are chill, the intimate interior can accomodate fifteen or so.  But the coziness that shrouds the chapel exudes timeless warmth as in no other season.
