Old St. Mary’s Chapel
When Old St. Mary’s Chapel was built in 1883, it served as a Catholic church for 100 years. Before the congregation essentially outgrew its space. In fact, it saw various religious organizations use it for services until 2004. That was the time when demolition became necessary due to structural damages. Afterward, the Rocklin Historical Society acquired the chapel in 2005 and moved it down Front Street to its new location. Volunteers then worked hard on transforming the old building into a beautiful, unique experience that visitors can enjoy today.
Eventually, the historic chapel held its first wedding on 2007. Looking back to it now, the Old St. Mary’s Chapel has become one of the most sought out destination. Also, it is the perfect location for your wedding day! To illuminate, the chapel has large arched windows that provide beautiful lighting, which lets you capture those special photos. In the same way, it offers a neutral backdrop for your personal touch. The chapel is also attached to an annex room equipped for getting ready. Leaving the annex by a side door, you follow a path back to front of the chapel and make your grand entrance!
This historic building is located in old downtown Rocklin where it is conveniently near various reception and rehearsal dinner sites. Making it another gem for those couples seeking to get married. In particular, some brides have even used a horse drawn carriage for transportation to their wedding receptions here! Further, Old St. Mary’s Chapel is a non-denominational historic building. They are strongly open to anyone who wants to bring their own officiant or minister of choice for the wedding ceremony.
