1. Wayfarers Chapel, Los Angeles

Wayfarers Chapel, Los Angeles

There are plenty of gorgeous American churches that are really photogenic, including Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, about 45 minutes from downtown Los Angeles. You’ll like the architecture partly because it was designed by the eminent Frank Lloyd Wright, and also because it’s inspired by nature, which is why it’s also called the ‘Tree Chapel.’ It’s in a forest so you’ll see lots of glass to show off the beautiful Redwood trees and rose garden, but it also has a view of the ocean. The chapel was built so travelers had somewhere to rest and be thankful for nature and you’ll love this; besides Sunday services it’s now also used for evening candlelit weddings. How romantic is that?
