Vintage Charm. Modern Amentities. 

The Chapel at The Morris Estate (formerly Morris Farms) has been providing a breathtaking backdrop for weddings since 1938. E.M. Morris built The Chapel as the Centre Meeting House on his 1,000 acre farm in Niles, Michigan. It began as the setting for his daughter's wedding and has since hosted important events for both the Morris family and community. Nestled next door is a local schoolhouse rescued from demolition. The Schoolhouse is adorned with antique school desks, chalkboards and quaint decor.

In the fall of 2010, the church, schoolhouse and surrounding land were purchased by the current owners who have worked to preserve the property's character. The Chapel was renovated in 2012 to add modern conveniences, such as air conditioning, audio equipment, dressing lounges, and prep space with floral refrigeration. Although the name has changed to The Chapel at The Morris Estate, the property's quaint atmosphere and rich heritage will continue to be maintained.

We were married at The Chapel at The Morris Estate and held our reception in a tent on the property. From the first time I stepped foot in the Chapel, I knew this was where we would be married. Amber, the owner, has thought of every detail. The Chapel is simply beautiful on its own, and there is so much that one can do to individualize the decor and their ceremony. We had several guests comment that they wished they could have another wedding and have their ceremony here! Absolutely stunning backdrop with the woods as well, our photos are beautiful. After our ceremony, guests walked next door to where our cocktail hour and tent venue was set up. This was super convenient and guests loved being able to start the party right after the ceremony. Everything was executed perfectly by Amber and her team, we felt so well taken care of. The Morris Estate also has a wide inventory of decorative items available, and we made good use of that. When it came to planning, Amber and her team were so helpful with suggestions and ideas. We were not local to the area and were planning from a distance, and the flexibility and quick responses were so appreciated! The whole day was a dream come true - we got our perfect fall wedding!

I absolutely loved having our wedding here! The Chapel was beautiful and the outdoor reception in the tent was amazing. They made our experience so easy and fun! Any worries I had, Amber eased them. I would explain an idea and she knew exactly what I was imagining. On the day of, Amber and her team made our dream wedding come to life. I couldn’t have asked for a better venue! Thank you Amber and your whole team!!
