WEDDING VISION: VENUE ~ THE SAINT FRANCIS CHAPEL & SAN DIEGO MUSEUM OF MAN 02.24.11

SAINT FRANCIS CHAPEL is located in scenic Balboa Park on the south side of the California Plaza, across the street from the main entrance to the Museum of Man. Designed by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue as an example of a Spanish Colonial church, the Chapel was built to add a religious note to the Panama-California Exposition of 1915.

The interior decoration was executed by Goodhue and Carlton M. Winslow. The Chapel is a blend of stark mission simplicity with tile floor, ceiling of heavy beams, and bench seating with an elaborately decorated gold leaf altar. The altar includes elegant modeled figures of the Virgin and Child, flanked on the left by Saint Francis Xavier and on the right by San Diego de Alcalá

The Saint Francis Chapel is one of San Diego’s favorite choices for wedding and commitment ceremonies. This dignified sanctuary is non-denominational, welcoming the services of all faiths.
