Filming at the Chapel

Wayfarers Chapel is an all glass sanctuary nestled in a grove of towering redwood trees. The Chapel, designed by Lloyd Wright, is constructed of Palos Verdes stone and redwood elements that come together at 30 and 60 degree angles. It opened its doors almost 70 years ago and is famous for its organic architecture. The natural elements used in its construction are a unique expression of the sacred space that welcomes all wayfarers along life’s path. With its breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, the 3.5 acres that the Chapel sits on feature beautifully landscaped gardens with trees forming arbored walkways leading to gardens replicating the forest floor, expansive lawns, an outdoor amphitheater, and a rose garden with a walk of honor featuring engraved pavers. 

The Wayfarers Chapel has appeared in many movies and television shows, including: The O.C., Lucifer, Beverly Hills 90210, The Bachelorette, Sliders, Revenge, Innerspace, Endless Love, The Rockford Files, and True Detective.
