Wedding Invitation

Going to the Chapel 
There is something incredibly charming about a small white clapboard wedding chapel.  The term wedding chapel may conjure an image of the chapels bathed in neon lights lining the strip of Las Vegas, but you know the kind I mean.  I'm thinking of tiny chapels tucked away on country lanes or nestled between the post office and general store in a small town.  Those buildings inspired this "going to the chapel" wedding invitation.  
I spend one evening last week last week searching through photographs of chapels and in the end painted this imagined version.   
In the words for the 1964 song by the Dixie Cups, “Gee, I really love you, and we’re gonna get married. Goin’ to the chapel of love.”
What chapels do you find to be most charming?
Pin It!
