Southern Chapel

Submitted by Christi

Today, I want to share with you some pictures of the Chapel where I was married. It is Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. It was a destination wedding, meaning, everyone there had to make an effort to get there because it is kind of out of the way.

We were married on October 12, 1997. I’ll show you pics from the actual wedding on my anniversary. For now, enjoy some non-wedding pictures of this beautiful chapel in the woods.

A warm welcome

A view from inside - 475 windows makes you feel like you are still outside

The crosses reflect into the woods - amazingly, they reflect 3 times

I’ll have to say, out of all the weddings I’ve been to, I liked mine the best! I hope all brides feel that way.

Today we are joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.

Today’s Lagniappe: Easy Coffee Cake
If you are dieting, don’t even look at this!

1 Can of Pillsbury biscuits
1 Can of German cake icing (like you put on a Choc German Cake) w/pecans/coconut
Hershey kisses (optional)

Take a round pan and butter it preheat the oven to what it says on the can of biscuits.

Put the icing in the bottom of the baking pan and lay your biscuits on top. If you use the Hershey kisses, wrap the biscuit dough around a few of them. Bake the bicuits according to the directions. When done, flip them onto a dish.

    How interesting that we both put up the same place this time! We went over there on Labor Day, and visitied it. I can remember running into Mr. Jones on campus many times, such an interesting and wonderful person.

    I have been to Eureka Springs and love the old homes there and the passion play they do . We were there about 28 years ago. That church is utterly awesome–I haven’t seen it before!
