Elvis Presley’s Graceland announces a brand-new Chapel in the Woods. The newly constructed chapel will feature a grand ceiling and windows throughout to allow the beautiful surroundings of the Graceland woods to be the back drop for couples to be married or renew their vows.

Located just steps away from the newly constructed The Guest House at Graceland, the Chapel in the Woods makes for the most iconic and memorable wedding destination. So to christen this new chapel, Graceland is hosting a day of love, featuring couples whose love were inspired by Elvis, whether it was on a visit to Graceland or during Elvis Week. The Chapel in the Woods will be hosting one special wedding and an amazing ten wedding vow renewals on 13th August 2018.

For the last 18 years, nestled in the woods beside Elvis Presley’s Graceland, stood the original Chapel in the Woods, the quaint wedding venue that has been host to almost 2,000 weddings, dedications and vow renewals. The all-new chapel features modern design and architecture by HBG Design, who previously collaborated on the design of The Guest House at Graceland, located adjacent to the new chapel.

Maintaining the intimate feel, where 75 guests can be hosted at this charming new location, The Chapel in the Woods is officially accepting reservations for ceremonies as early as 14th August. During Elvis Week 2018, fans and friends are invited to an open house at the new chapel from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm on 16th August, when you can sample some celebratory wedding cake!

To continue the day of love, Graceland is asking for couples who met at Graceland or Elvis Week and would like to take part in a group vow renewal on 13th August. Ten couples will be chosen for this complimentary group ceremony but couples should submit their Elvis-inspired love stories by 27th July to be considered. These couples will be the first in the new chapel, marking their place in Graceland history!
