Can I bring my own food/use my own caterer?
Yes.  We provide a small kitchen equipped with refrigerator, sink, and microwave (no stove).  The Adobe House is available and ideal for setting up a buffet line. You and/or your caterer provide the food. You create the setup the way you want per your needs and costs.

Yes.  There are three parking lots that can accommodate up to 55 cars.

When do we have to clean up and restore things to normal?
At the end of your event, you are responsible for restoring the San Pedro Chapel to its original condition. Please allow time for clean-up.

Can I use real candles?
Only on a limited basis. Real candles may only be used inside the San Pedro Chapel and only on the altar. Otherwise, no open flame, either inside the Chapel or outside on the Chapel grounds, is permitted.
Electric or battery-operated flicker candles work well and create a very nice ambience.

Do we have to provide towels, toilet paper, etc.?
No. These basic necessities are provided.
