Perfect Ceremony Venue    posted 10/9/2013 (updated 1/27/2014)

The chapel was the perfect place to have our wedding. It is so beautiful and intimate. We received so many compliments from guests on the beauty of the chapel. Becca from the Naper Settlement was great to work with. She was quick to respond to any question and always very friendly and professional. We loved having our wedding at the Naper Settlement!

Amazing!    posted 2/2/2014 (updated 2/3/2014)

Century Memorial Chapel at Naper Settlement was exactly what I wanted for the place to get married. The old feel of the chapel plus the location was perfect. Dealing with the people at Naper Settlement was also great. I worked mostly with Becca, and she was so personable and really easy to get a hold of- she also answered any questions I had in a timely manner. The Chapels new renovations was also a plus! I HIGHLY recommend Naper Settlement Chapel for any couple looking for somewhere unique and memorable to get married!

Great Place for a Historic-Minded Bride!    posted 10/2/2013 (updated 1/27/2014)

Century Memorial Chapel was a fantastic choice for our September 2013 wedding! The grounds of Naper Settlement are gorgeous and the chapel was the perfect historic setting. The reservation process was very simple and the rental attendant was extremely helpful at the rehearsal and during the wedding day. It was like having a planner/day-of consultant on-site!

STUNNING location, Wonderful History    posted 12/12/2012 (updated 1/27/2014)

I can't say enough about how beautiful the chapel is, not to even mention the history. My fiancé and I really wanted to find a chapel/church close to our reception location since more than half our guests were from out of town, once they got there we didn't want them to travel far. We searched for churches willing to marry us (even though we weren't members). When I found Naper Settlement and visited, I was sold! All the beams and woodwork is beautiful. So many guests were blown away by how beautiful the church was. We got married in December and all the decorations are beautiful and will work for anyone, no matter your colors. The staff was friendly and so easy to work with. They always quickly answered questions (calls or emails). Andi was our coordinator at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. She really made it so easy for us and gave us wonderful advice for what works best at that location. She even worked with our musicians to make everything flow flawlessly.

My only complaint really has NOTHING to do with the location, service or people. It's just paying $1,000 for only 2 hours the day of and 1 hour for rehearsal really is a lot. I understand it's an old building and it needs to be maintained to keep it in the wonderful state it’s in now. It still seems pricey to me, especially when they can have numerous weddings booked in a day.

But then again, even with the high price they got me (miss save every dollar I can). So I guess they know what they're doing. :-)

Beautiful Historical Chapel    posted 1/14/2011 (updated 1/27/2014)

We picked this chapel because of it's beautiful stained glass windows and antique look, as well as the location (we met and were engaged in downtown Napervillle, so it seemed fitting). It's so pretty you don't need decorations. It was also close enough for us to walk over to the riverwalk for photos after the ceremony. The assistant (Andee?) was very helpful and ensured that everything went smoothly. She really made it more perfect than it would have been, and went above and beyond. I was very grateful for all her help. I only gave a 3 for flexibility because the original day we wanted to marry wasn't available even though we reserved a year in advance, and it wasn't very easy to set an appointment for us to test the music beforehand. We were planning a casual ceremony so did not schedule a rehearsal, but my friend who was going to play piano wanted to test it out and see how many steps to the altar for the music timing, and they only gave us a short mid-afternoon window during the week, which meant taking time off work, and then we had to wait for groups of children on field trips and sneak in in between them. Other than that small issue this place was perfect for us, and we had a beautiful ceremony.

Picturesque Wedding Chapel    posted 2/18/2014 (updated 2/26/2014)

Century Memorial Chapel at Naper Settlement is by far one of the most stunning historic churches in the area. Its also wonderful because you can have a non-denominational ceremony in an actual church! Becca and her staff were wonderful to work with. My questions were answered promptly, and the day of staff were very accommodating and patient. No matter what season you get married, this church is the perfect setting, as well as the surrounding grounds. I highly recommend this church to anyone searching for a ceremony site. You'll fall in love instantly.
