I had my baby shower here this previous weekend and when we arrived which we got there a few minutes early she already had things set up to where we just had to hang up a couple of our small decorations. She is incredibly nice Miss Debra as well as her staff . We accidentally went over our timeframe by a little bit but she said it was perfectly fine the price was completely affordable and everyone had a great time everybody kept telling me how beautiful the venue was which made me happy . In fact my fiancé and I are now discussing having our wedding there since it was so beautiful inside and out and she did a fantastic job accommodating the amount of people that we had. I would highly suggest this venue whether you're having a family event a wedding a baby shower regardless of the event, I'm sure miss Deb can accommodate.

Getting married at the Ruston chapel was such a great experience. Jan was so helpful and lovely. Everything went off beautifully thanks to her hard work and dedication to making it a perfect day. The chapel is small but not crowded, just quaint and beautiful. All the little details from the big windows to the decorations just add to the charm. I'm so happy we were married in such a perfect place.

We recently had our wedding at the Ruston Chapel (May 15th, 2016) and had a wonderful experience. The venue is small, but this was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a small wedding that provided a sense of intimacy and quality time with our friends and family, and we got just that. The interior of the venue was a beautiful rustic décor and the owner (Jan) was very flexible in terms of providing our own little touches to the design. Communication with Jan went very smoothly and she was wonderful to work with. If you need someone to help you plan your wedding, skip the wedding planner and save your money; Jan has a plethora of experience in the wedding business and can help guide your planning without losing sight of the couple’s focus. She also has a great network of wedding professionals she keeps in ties with. She recommended our catering and photographer, which we were both very pleased about. Overall, we highly recommend Jan and her Ruston Chapel. Cheers!
