Century Memorial Chapel Weddings

Naperville Wedding Venue for the History Books!

Built in 1864, the charm and elegance of Century Memorial Chapel comes through in its original stained glass windows and decorative hand stenciling. The curved buttresses, carved pews and globe lighting highlight the Gothic Revival style of architecture.
