The Bastyr University Chapel is an ideal setting for wedding ceremonies. The Bastyr University Chapel is on the campus of Bastyr University, an internationally acclaimed university in natural health care. The facility rests on 50 acres of fields and woodlands on the northeast shore of Lake Washington, just 10 miles from downtown Seattle and Bellevue. The university is adjacent to the beautiful 316-acre St. Edward State Park, comprised of evergreen forests, streams and including secluded beach access to Lake Washington. Miles of nature trails wind through much of the park.
About the Bastyr University Chapel
Bastyr University’s exquisite European-style chapel was created with the highest quality workmanship available in 1958 and continues to radiate the devotion with which it was built. Nearly five stories in height and 140 feet long, it is home to 36 hand-crafted stained glass windows and brilliant glass mosaic artwork depicting various religious themes, hand-crafted altars and columns of foreign marbles, terrazzo floors, wooden pews, oak paneling and a choir loft. The carved wooden pews run length-wise along the chapel, making the procession of the bride and groom a truly spectacular site for all in attendance. The chapel and choir loft combined can comfortably seat up to 450 people with chairs added.
Who can be married here?
Both members of the Bastyr Community and the public may rent the chapel for weddings. Our chapel is non-denominational, each couple is responsible for finding an appropriate Minister or Justice of the Peace to perform their ceremony.
