This small church is mostly glass and looks out over the Palos Verdes coast line. A great place for a wedding!

“Very placid and lovely”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This is a lovely cozy church, with great views of the coast. It is a famous site for weddings. The architecture is lovely, and one gets a sense of being nestled in the trees.

“Interesting place with gorgeous views”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This is a glass church overlooking the coast set in the middle of some trees. It was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's son. Architecturally it's very interesting, but there isn't really much to do here other than soak in the gorgeous coastline views. It's probably not a place I would go out of my way to visit, but if you happen to be driving down Palos Verdes Drive South, it's definitely worth a quick stop.

“Beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The setting of this small chapel is quite serene, right across from the Pacific Ocean. It's great for a 15 minute visit - or a wedding.
