Casperita White Pumpkin

The calendar has officially turned over to Fall!  We were recently sent a link for these cute little Casperita pumpkins.  Great addition for Fall Wedding Decor.  We are excited for our upcoming Fall brides and hoping for spectacular Ozark colors.

The Casperita white pumpkin is a favorite as a wedding and shower pumpkin. The white to creamy flesh goes with your event decor flawlessly. The diameter averages between 3 to 5 inches wide.  To order directly, visit Autumn Harvest Pumpkins Wedding Pumpkins.

It has been a while since we have posted, a lot has been going on at the Resort and at the Chapel. We have been getting lots of families here for vacation. We have been running around like chickens with our heads cut off running the resort this summer. Now it has finally slowed down and we are getting into all things weddings. We have been contacting brides and getting lots of information from them for their upcoming weddings. We have been doing some tours and final appointments. We have a wedding coming up on August 3rd and we are so excited about the wedding. 
We have gotten some new linens in at the Chapel. They are purple tablecloths with a white flower/sequin overlay. We added some purple and white flowers for the centerpieces. Wendie worked on the centerpieces and she did an amazing job arranging the flowers. The lavender color with the white flower overlay has been one of our favorite table linens.❤ We have thoroughly enjoyed putting the tables together for a mock wedding and getting to share them with all the brides that come through our doors for a tour.

Wendie worked on a cake to display as well so that the brides can get the full effect when they walk in. She used styrofoam for the actual cake, and she arranged flowers all over the cake, sticking to our theme she used purple flowers. Wendie did an amazing job with the cake. She really knows how to arrange those flowers perfectly! 

The Chapel itself is such a beautiful and peaceful space. When we get to go up to the Chapel to decorate or move tables around, it is such a joyous day to get to relax up there without the hectic demands of the resort. We were rearranging tables and chairs the other day to get an idea of how we wanted to set up for a wedding. While we were doing this I looked towards the front of the Chapel and had to take a picture. The sun was shining in and the water was perfect that day. The view from the front of the Chapel is just breathtaking. It is the perfect background for a wedding. This view is my favorite part of the Chapel! The picture doesn't even do it justice!

Another one of my favorite things about the Chapel is a Bridal Veil wall that we have. It is in our office, it is a plain white wall with beautiful veils, lace, and gloves hung on the wall it is just so pretty, clean, white, and just a classic addition to the Chapel! ❤

Lots of LOVE🎔

Blessing of the Chapel

So much has happened since our last blog! The Chapel construction is complete!
Our parents, children, and grand baby came in from New York, Canada, and Texas to help us bless the Chapel on April 28th. Pastor Faulk performed a moving blessing and Tom King piped some beautiful songs on his bagpipes!

It was a wonderful time to reflect and to thank the many people that have supported and inspired us over the years. Along with the many hands that created the chapel. We were thrilled to take this time to thank them and to bless all those couples who will be entering the chapel to begin their lives together. We are truly blessed to be a part of this awesome day in their lives!

We also took this day to dedicate all the gardens surrounding the chapel in the memory of Ginna and Ron Brander. We promise to carry on their legacy and commitment to the land, lake, and nature.

We want to thank our family for coming in, our employees (past and present) for all their hard work and dedication, our awesome builder and building crews, and our friends~especially our dear friends,  Amalia and Alfredo who drove in from Texas to surprise us!  We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day!

We look forward to taking you on a tour of our "Chapel on the Lake".  We know you will enjoy the gorgeous view of Table Rock Lake and the surrounding Ozark Mountains.
God Bless!

Spring and St. Patrick's Day have Sprung at Dooley's Chapel on the Lake!

We are ready for opening! All of the hard work, long nights, and talent poured into this project have paid off, and it was WELL worth the wait! But as the construction wraps up, the work has only just begun. This week we have WeddingWire coming to the chapel to film a video for us showcasing the venue. We have spent the last two weeks setting up the chapel for a mock wedding, and it is all coming together!

We are all so excited to get into wedding season and witness couples begin their lives together here.
Let us be your venue for your destination wedding! Contact us to schedule a tour of the chapel and resort. We have everything you need for your wedding all in one location!
