World's Smallest Wedding Chapel

The chapel steeple is gone. Sits beside a small mobile home. Looks like a she shed-garden shed.

World's Smallest Wedding Chapel

Shepherd's Field Wedding Chapel is presumed to be the Smallest Chapel in use in the state of Missouri, or maybe the United States. The Chapel is 6'x10' outside dimensions and can hold a wedding party of 10 semi-comfortably.

It was built in 2008 to hold small weddings inside and to be used as a backdrop for outside weddings. There is even a full reception offered for a maximum of 10.
