St. Barnabas on the Desert




What a gift it is to celebrate marriage between two people who have found each other and desire to make the commitment to living their lives together in love. The clergy enjoy working with couples and helping them plan their perfect wedding ceremony at St. Barnabas on the Desert. St. Barnabas chapel is absolutely stunning. The bride will slowly walk down the aisle complete with romantic candles and flower petals at her feet. The room has white walls, tons of lighting, and ample room for all of your friends and family to watch (and potentially tear up) as you say “I do”. Say your heartfelt vows with the incredible colorful mosaic behind you and the shimmering gold cross above you. The chapel will be decked out in flowers of your choosing. After the fantastic ceremony, bring your party outside to the beautiful courtyard, and take some unforgettable desert-style wedding photos while you are at it.
