Reserving the Chapel for your Wedding: Lottery System
Due to the high volume of requests, a lottery system is used to book the Chapel for wedding ceremonies. Only the bride or groom or members of their immediate families may make reservations.
Wedding reservations are able to be booked one year in advance. For example, for an April 2013 wedding, one would enter the lottery by calling our office during the last 5 working days of March 2012. The drawing would be held on the first working day of April 2012.
Lottery entries are drawn at random. Requesters are contacted as their names are drawn and may reserve any date and time available. The requester must be available via phone the morning of the lottery drawing. The lottery continues until every requester has been called.
The exception to this is for the months of September, October, and November. This is due to the finalization of the home football schedule.
To reserve for September, October, or November one may enter a lottery during the last 5 working days of January of the same year. The lottery drawing is held on the 2nd Monday of February. If the football schedule has not yet been released, you will be notified when you call to enter the lottery.
After the lottery drawing is complete, reservations for remaining dates and times are accepted by calling directly.
