Planning

We have created the Music and Liturgy Planning Form to help review and select your readings and music. When entering information in the form, it will be sent to the Chapel staff who will then follow up with you in regard to your wedding.

Steven Betancourt is the chapel music director and will assist you with all music related planning items. You should be in contact with him between 4 and 6 months before your wedding.

Cookie Krupa is the chapel coordinator and will assist you with all liturgy and rehearsal related planning items. You should be in contact with her between 1 and 2 weeks before your wedding.
