Waverley Chapel

- Thursday, December 13, 2012

There was a lot of buzz in the media recently about a beautiful love story: college sweethearts, Emilie Danielson and Terry Britton, reunited after 50 years. Natives of Orange County, the couple met at Chapman College back in 1960 and went steady for a few years before parting ways. 50 years later, they reconnected, fell back in love, and wed at Fairhaven’s Waverley Chapel in November 2012, exchanging rings and vows inside the beautiful chapel. 

Waverley Chapel has been home to many wedding ceremonies in Fairhaven’s century of service to Orange County, and our wonderful staff has been a privileged part of those happy moments. Surrounded by Fairhaven’s 70 acres of lawns and trees, the chapel is reminiscent of Old English chapels, complete with stone masonry exterior and hand-carved mahogany pews and candelabra on the interior, providing a beautiful backdrop for ceremonies. Be it for weddings or remembrance services, each service held at Waverley Chapel celebrates life and love in this truly unique setting. 

Many of us at Fairhaven were moved by Emilie and Terry’s heart-warming story, and we wish them a long and happy life together!
