The Firestone Baars Chapel at Stephen’s College
Designed by renowned Finnish architect Eero Saarinen (designer of the St. Louis Gateway Arch), this uplifting venue features beautiful stained glass windows and doors that illuminate every side of this stand-out space. Walk down the aisle to the impressive sound of our 19th-century pipe organ. This instrument serves as the towering backdrop to your one-of-a-kind ceremony. Exchange your vows in the heart of the chapel, surrounded by your family and friends in an intimate setting. Share your ceremony with up to 290 guests, plus your wedding party, in the extraordinary Firestone Baars Chapel.
It’s finally here. The day you’ve been dreaming of since you were little — the moment you say “I do” to the love of your life. Everything about this day should be beautiful and what you dreamed of being, including the chapel. Whether you envisioned a simple and classic style, a little rustic, or even a free-spirited bohemian style, the Firestone Baars Chapel offers natural wood tones and sleek marble floors, leaving you with a variety of wedding styles to choose from.
When Firestone Baars Chapel was designed as a place of worship for all religions. This is still true today. Firestone Baars Chapel is a nondenominational space that welcomes and celebrates all religions.
