History of our Historic Style Chapel

Published October 5th, 2018 by Bellaadmin

We've had a lot of guests come to Bella Sera Ranch and the number one question we're asked is, "Where did the chapel come from? Was it already here, or did you build it?"

Our chapel was designed based on a actual chapel located in Peninsula, Ohio. 

Here are pictures of the actual chapel in Ohio. Isn't it just adorable?

Built in 1882, this chapel did not have any plans to base our building specs on, so we took a lot of pictures and physical measurements to assist in designing the specs of our chapel.  

Here are a few pictures of our unique chapel being built. 

We often are asked about the pews inside the chapel. We found our pews from usedpews.org online! They had the perfect historic pews from a Lutheran Church in New Jersey for sale. We scooped up all 23 pews to bring back to Texas! We think our pews really set the tone inside our intimate chapel.

Some things are truly meant to be and this is one of those things. They look like they were absolutely made to go inside our chapel. 


Now, 8 years later, this perfect little historic style chapel has hosted hundreds of weddings. Every wedding a little different from the one before. Oh the memories it holds, and most importantly, all the love!
