I frequently meet with couples at CrossHope Chapel for a simple elopement, it is not a public wedding venue, but it is a good meeting place if you simply need a courthouse alternative.
I am happy to meet couples here for a simple courthouse-like elopement ceremony, provided the wedding is in line with the CrossHope Chapel officiating policy, if it’s just the couple or a few people with you, and no longer than 30 minutes. An officiating fee scale is listed below.
If you are wearing a wedding gown, have bridesmaids and groomsman, hiring a photographer, needing an aisle to walk-down, wanting to decorate…this is NOT the place for your wedding ceremony. If you see the picture below you will notice that our church location is laid out very differently than a typical church so we are not currently set-up as a formal wedding accommodation, except for a courthouse-style ceremony.
I can’t book to officiate more than 30 days out of your date because sometimes the church has activities planned that include chapel use. Last-minute weddings are not a problem if I’m in Mobile, but just check with me by using the Chapel Availability Form or Email.
Please visit the church’s website page “Directions to Chapel“ for map and directions to CrossHope Chapel, 9943 Lifeline Ct Ste C, Mobile, Alabama 36608.
Officiating Fees for Simple Wedding at Chapel…
Over the years we have had some issues with couples showing up at our chapel with far more guests than they had originally communicated. We are not a wedding venue and I am simply allowed to use our church location Chapel to help evangelical Christian couples (up to 24 guests) and not to create rental revenue. (Officiating fees at outside locations.)
Weekdays AM – Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri AM. – Bride & Groom only $50 | With Guests $100
Weekdays PM – Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu. – Bride & Groom only $100 | With Guests $150
Weekends – Fri PM, Sat, Sun. – Bride & Groom only $150 | With Guests $200
*Children – If you have small toddlers or school age children, they do not count as guests. If you have any questions about your guests and if they would cause a higher fee, please ask me.
*Additional Guests – If you have over 24 guests this Chapel is unable to accommodate your wedding and we recommend leasing the Celebrations venue directly across the street from us.
*Additional Time – There is an additional $100 fee for an additional 30 minutes of chapel time due to waiting for arrival of guests, delay in start, late arrival, etc., and this fee is incurred for each additional 30 minute increments beyond the booked time.
*Weekend/Weekday – For officiating fee purposes, which are based on my scheduling ability as weekends are higher demand on my time: “Weekend” is defined as Friday after 12 PM through Sunday PM. Weekday is defined as Monday through Friday before 12:00 noon.
Check If I’m Available to Officiate…

Directions & Map to West Mobile Chapel…
CrossHope Chapel is at 9943 Lifeline Court Ste C, Mobile, Alabama 36608, just north of Airport Blvd and the first road to the left just off of Snow Road behind the Winn-Dixie shopping center. This is a business office area, except for us and a Pentecostal group across the street, but when you turn down Lifeline Ct you’ll see that CrossHope Chapel is in Suite C on the South/left side of Lifeline Court, directly across from the Celebrations party room.
