Waverley Chapel - Santa Ana, CA

Timeless Architecture

Nestled under a canopy of trees, charming and stately Waverley Chapel offers a truly special setting for life’s most memorable celebrations and ceremonies. For weddings and other significant occasions, Waverley Chapel lends an atmosphere that is truly unique.

Built in the Old English architectural tradition, Waverley Chapel is a dignified and distinctive landmark on the beautifully landscaped grounds of Fairhaven. Surrounded by 70 acres of lush lawns and trees, Waverley Chapel recalls the charm of English village chapels and abbeys where close-knit communities come together.

From the distinguished stone masonry exterior to the interior stone arches, every detail creates a lovely traditional atmosphere appropriate for any event. Much attention has been paid to interior details such as the hand-carved mahogany pews covered with antique red velvet, stunning stained glass windows, and elegant candelabra, which lend a memorable touch to your special occasion.

We invite you to visit this beautiful setting and tour the facilities. We think you will agree that Waverley Chapel is a special place for a very special occasion.

Old-world charm with modern conveniences

Comfort and convenience are also a priority for you and your guests. Waverley Chapel comfortably accommodates up to 200, while also creating an intimate atmosphere. Serving as the reception area, the Gallery welcomes your guests with unique charm. Inspired by the romance of 18th century France, the Bride’s Room is both luxurious and practical, with many thoughtful touches a bride will appreciate. The Bride’s Terrace provides an outdoor patio setting ideal for a private moment or a photo opportunity.

While traditional and timeless, Waverley Chapel also offers modern conveniences to help ensure the success of your occasion. The kitchen in the Gallery has been recently remodeled with your reception needs in mind. The chapel is equipped with an updated sound system as well as a modern keyboard, and is air conditioned for your comfort. At your disposal is the chapel’s on-staff wedding coordinator, here to help make sure the bride and groom enjoy their special day. Wedding packages are also available for your convenience.
