Weddings

With mild weather year-round, the grounds of Epworth By The Sea provide distinct coastal beauty every season. If an outdoor wedding is in your plans, Epworth has two scenic and serene spots within its 100-acre campus.

The hallowed grounds of Epworth By The Sea have been a popular destination for couples to say “I do” for generations. Since Epworth opened in 1950, brides and grooms have brought families together under our sturdy live oaks and coastal palms and joined hearts in the simple elegance of our wedding venues.

As one of the most popular wedding venues on St. Simons Island, Lovely Lane Chapel is an iconic location for the exchanging of vows and rings. The classic chapel, with its wooden pews and stained-glass windows, gives the happy couple a moment they won’t forget. If you’re contemplating where to have a wedding on St. Simons Island, look no further than Epworth’s Lovely Lane Chapel, constructed in 1880.

Whether you envision a sunset service along the banks of the historic Frederica River or a classic lawn wedding in front of Lovely Lane Chapel, Epworth By The Sea can provide the environment you've been dreaming of.

For small ceremonies of 18 persons or less, the Wright Prayer Chapel is the perfect place for intimate nuptials.
