Beautiful Weddings at Children's Harbor

Children’s Harbor at Lake Martin provides an incredible backdrop for weddings. Choose from two venues – both nestled in a picturesque environment on Lake Martin in Alex City. Our two facilities, Children’s Chapel and Church in the Pines, host various sized wedding ceremonies. It’s no wonder we’re one of the most sought after wedding destinations in the region.

I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day at Children’s Harbor. One of the most special parts of our day was after our ceremony at Church in the Pines, we were picked up by boat to drive into the sunset for our reception. It was so special and romantic and the lighthouse was the perfect backdrop!

Our wedding would not have been as beautiful if it had been anywhere else. Children's Harbor is a wonderful place to have a wedding.

Kristen Carroll - Children's Chapel

Our daughter's wedding on the grounds of Children's Chapel was a true fairy tale experience. The simplicity and beauty of Children's Chapel and grounds provided the perfect backdrop for a "dream come true" wedding experience.
