Authorities are helpful & happy to answer your questions.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️⛪️⛪️⛪️⛪️🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇🎈
The grounds are landscaped beautifully and the spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean are breathtaking. The chapel’s floor to ceiling glass windows, which are the hallmarks of this architectural marvel, are stunning to take in from within the intimate space and from the outside. The afternoon sun bathes the chapel in glorious, soft light and allows visitors and attendees of the many weddings that are likely held here to take in the natural beauty surrounding this magical spot. It’s a wonderful, somewhat hidden LA County gem, that’s easy to share with visitors who are in town for the day or weekend and also a serene place for locals to stop, unwind and meditate for awhile. Hoping I’ll have an opportunity to sneak away one evening this summer and check out the outdoor yoga sessions I noticed they sometimes host out on the lawn. Seems an ideal location for such an activity!
