Wedding in the Historic Hope Chapel of Shelby Township

Congratulations to Ryan and Steve who were married last Friday at the Hope Chapel in Shelby Township. The Hope Chapel was originally known as the Hope United Methodist Church of Disco, Michigan. It was located on the west side of Van Dyke north of 24 Mile road. The Hamlet of Disco was platted in 1849. While the town’s name extinguished over the years, the congregation continued to grow. In August of 1997, the Committee learned that The Hope United Methodist Church members decided to build a new church. Preserving the historic buildings that exist in our Township has always been a top priority of the Shelby Township Historical Committee. The Historical Committee recognized the significance of the old building and wanted to preserve it if possible.
This beautiful chapel was the setting for lovely Friday evening wedding. We had the pleasure of playing many classical selections such as Handel’s Watermusic, Debussy’s Clair De Lune and Massenet’s Meditation from Thais for their prelude as guests were arriving. It was a sentimental moment when bride’s parents walked their daughter, Ryan, down the aisle to the traditional Bridal Chorus. We wish to thank Pam, coordinator the Hope Chapel, for her cues and assistance. Congratulations to Ryan and Steve as they begin their lives together.
