The Paddock is a 60-acre property that serves as a venue to host weddings and events. The chapel building is the newest addition that helps pull the entire property together as one cohesive venue. As such, the chapel not only needed to complement the circa 1885 homestead, but also the other buildings that have been added over the last 50 years.

The Paddock already boasted a bridal suite in the homestead and, in separate buildings, a groom room and dedicated space for wedding receptions. But owners Jeff and Jill Shelton wanted to be able to offer a separate, special place to hold wedding ceremonies that would be simple and inherently beautiful. Many detailed requests were taken into account in the design and build because they would impact on-site photography and would establish overall ambiance.

The Paddock chapel has hosted weddings almost every weekend since it opened. More than 40 weddings have already been scheduled for 2024. The owners are planning to  expand to incorporate training, client presentations, charity events, and outdoor events. Because of the longevity of post-frame buildings, the chapel is poised to play a significant role in its community for many years to come.
