The Ringgold Wedding Chapel began as an Episcopal Methodist church in 1845. The church was destroyed in the Civil War by fire as Sherman marched towards Atlanta. The church was rebuilt though with a mere $600. In 1987 Helen Boyd opened the chapel to brides and grooms and began to join couples together as one. Teresa James purchased the business in 2008 and transformed the old church into a first class wedding chapel. Since then, the chapel has served not only the southeast, but happy couples from all over the world.
Ringgold, GA acquired the name, wedding capital of the south, due to the simple process of obtaining a marriage license and being married all in the same day at a convenient location. The Ringgold Wedding Chapel is located directly across the street from the Catoosa County Courthouse. Only one piece of identification is required from a bride and groom and the marriage license costs $65 in cash. Judges in other counties often are not able to schedule weddings right away. In Ringgold though the probate and magistrate judges are willing to marry couples as they show up.
