Hope Wilderness Chapel

 The Hope Wilderness Chapel, completed in 2002, is a replica of traditional places of worship from the 1800’s. Handcrafted by Dogwood Canyon staff members, the chapel features local materials including native short-leaf pine logs, rough-sawn oak flooring and an eastern red cedar ceiling. The chapel’s back wall, made entirely of windows, frames a picturesque view of one of many waterfalls at Dogwood Canyon. This creates the ideal backdrop for your special day. The Wilderness Chapel seats 120 guests and is available for weddings, vow renewals, meetings, and special services.

Chapel Patio Reception

This space is located directly behind the Hope Wilderness Chapel, so your entire event can be in one space! The patio can also seat 120, and sits directly on Little Indian stream with a waterfall view. The room below the chapel is called the Wilderness Room, and it can seat 50 people comfortably. Our banquet team sets up in the wilderness room while you and your guests relax and celebrate on the patio. We provide all the table and chairs needed for the event at this location. The Chapel Patio is also perfect for outdoor ceremonies, directly in front of the waterfall, with your reception at one of our other venue locations. A backup rain plan is always provided in the event of inclement weather.
