Butterflute's Wedding Chapel may be the only wedding chapel in the world that is located inside of a working boat yard.  But this is Sausalito and anything is possible!


Sausalito, the first town north of the Golden Gate Bridge, has a rich and varied nautical history. The chapel, a repurposed boat lettering shop, is located adjacent to the old World War II ship ways in the heart of our working waterfront. The Chapel is surrounded by gardens and is where the ceremony is performed.  Guests are then invited inside for a simple celebration of cake and champagne.




We offer an all-inclusive wedding package starting at $500 for our Elopement Special (just the couple) and $1500 for a party of up to 20 people.


This includes the ceremony venue, officiant, document filing, tiny cake, a bottle of bubbly, shipyard bouquet, ceremonial flute and smudging.

"When love is in air, that's where I want to be!  It is a privilege working with couples and helping them move forward in life and love."

Butterflute's Wedding Chapel was created in 2007 by Universal Life Minister, Victoria Colella who is also the resident sign-maker and a local maritime historian. She published a guide book in 2003 entitled the Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour and leads walking tours and treasure hunts along the Sausalito waterfront..
