I call A Special Memory Wedding Chapel to arrange an appointment with them and I was surprised that I can just walk in without one. After arriving at the small parking lot, shocked by the size of the chapel which is significantly smaller than the picture, I patiently waited 40+ minuets for my 5 minute ceremony. While being promised professional pictures, the photographer hastily snapped a few crappy photos that doesn’t even illustrate the theme and moment. Some pictures were even slanted!! These pictures were so bad that my 7 year old cousin can take better pictures than the “professional” photographer. The camera is a cheap canon that is only worth 450 dollars retail and was only equipped with a standard 18-55mm lens. No add-on flash or any other accessories were equipped with the camera and they prohibited me to use my canon 7d fully equipped in the chapel. Despite the quick 5 minute ceremony, the pastor gave me an envelope asking for a 60 dollar minimum to 100 dollar gratuity. After giving her a good tip, it took her two weeks to file the marriage record. I called them many times about it and the response I received is that they have 10 business days to file your marriage record while there is nothing they can do for me. After the 10th day, they finally agreed to contact the pastor to see what was happening and promised to call me back but I never got a phone call or voice mail from them. If you would want to wait 30 plus minutes for your 5 minute ceremony, pay a huge gratuity, be over-charged for the crappy pictures they take with a non-professional camera, wait at least two weeks for them to file your marriage record, and poor customer service with no reply after calling them many times to ask for an update, then A Special Memory Wedding Chapel is THE place for you.

Wedding Chapel - fantastic! – Wedding July 2005, planned and booked online 10 months in advance.
Outstanding service on the day, minister was great - took time to get to know a little about both myself and my husband before the ceremony as we'd travelled from the UK with 26 guests and made an effort to make the ceremony very personal.
Disappointed! – We must of been there the same day..SMC told me we would have about a 15-20 min ceremony since it was a busy that day well that was not the case, are ceremony lasted a whole 3 mins but still had to pay the same price..We also ordered the video of the wedding ceremony and that was suppose to include parts of the strip,well it only had the 3 min ceremony on it! It was so awful in there with no air condition and yes they were charging $2.00 for water.. There was a bride that passed out from the heat it was terrible.I tried to contact SMC they never retuned my call or email.Bottom line they over booked that day! I
Disasterous!!! Terrible service!! – My sister's wedding should have been a beautiful occassion. It had been planned for months. We had been in communication with the chapel. We were told that the chapel was booked solid for that day and that they'd be busy - but that it would still be a great day! They lied! It was awful!!!!
They overbooked to the extreme - our ceremony was an hour and a half late making all of our guests wait in 115 degree heat. No air conditioning - then they had the audacity to charge $2 for water. We were late to our reception and lost some of our deposites as a result.
Everyone was rude and kept blaming eachother.
Please give your service to a place that will treat you better than this on your special day!!
