We had an absolutely amazing time planning our wedding ceremony at kirkpatrick chapel in june 2015. My husband and I are both Rutgers Alumni and this is THE place to get married for former students. We searched all over for the perfect venue and nothing came close to this historic chapel's elegance and charm. The coordinator Patrick Cogan is awesome and so responsive. The day of coordinator for both the rehearsal and wedding day was perfect. She was early, answered all my questions, and set-up exactly what I needed. I wish I could remember her name because she deserves credit, but I was overwhelmed and nervous. They do have time limits for rehearsal and ceremony times but we were able to purchase an extra hour prior to the start of our ceremony for our florist to set-up and the musicians to practice. It's not the cheapest ceremony venue but you do not need to worry about much. I highly recommend this place for anyone.
We held my daughter’s wedding ceremony at Kirkpatrick Chapel, on the campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. The chapel is an historic and architectural gem, and a beautiful venue – both inside and out – for a wedding. Patrick Cogan, operations manager, was responsive, knowledgeable, kind and helpful, and a pleasure to work with. He made the rental process extremely easy. Nancy, the staff member who was assigned to help us at the chapel on the day of the wedding, was very accommodating. She took great care to make sure the recorded music we provided was timed perfectly to each part of the ceremony.Some other reviewers have commented on the tight window of 1.5-hour rental time slots. We were fortunate in that we booked the chapel far enough in advance so we were able to change our original rental time period to a later time to better suit our needs. And because the wedding was in March, we happened to luck out that there were no events scheduled at the Chapel before or after ours, so it did make our minimal decorating easier and less rushed. We were thrilled that Kirkpatrick Chapel, so steeped in historical significance, provided such a beautiful setting to create a very special and memorable wedding ceremony.
