Many brides to be dream of having big, lavish, over-the-top weddings. But, if you’re thinking of throwing a slightly more modest ceremony (or just looking for a fun stop on a road trip through Missouri), look no further than Mount Vernon, where you’ll find the World’s Smallest Wedding Chapel.
This tiny church in Missouri, also known as Shepherd’s Field Wedding Chapel, was built in 2008. It is only 6-feet by 10-feet and can hold up to 8 people comfortably (so, for a weding, the couple, the officient, and 5 guest).
Stop by Missouri’s smallest church to have the world’s smallest wedding or for a miniature stop on a Missouri road trip. But maybe try to get there earlier in the day than I did…
This was the last stop on day two of my three-day Missouri road trip. That day we also saw these other Missouri roadside attractions: a giant soccer ball, the giant needle threading a button in Kansas City, a large Old-Fashioned Iron Sculpture, the World’s Largest Shuttlecocks, the World’s Largest Coal Shovel, a Giant Morel Mushroom, another Miniature Church in Golden City, the Crapduster airplane, SuperTAM on 66, and the Giant Praying Hands in Webb City.
