Truehart Wedding Chapel: Glenside’s newest ‘micro-wedding’ destination – Glenside Local

Nikki Truehart, whose family has been in the wedding industry for over 20 years, opened Truehart Wedding Chapel in March 2022.

Located at 2800 Limekiln Pike #2 in Glenside, the chapel hosts ‘micro-weddings’—small ceremonies with 25 or fewer guests.

“Microweddings became popular during the pandemic when people couldn’t do large ceremonies. They’re relatively new in the industry,” Nikki said.

Pre-COVID, the average American couple spent over $30,000 on their wedding plans. Enter the micro-wedding: An intimate affair that’s friendlier than an elopement and significantly less stressful than planning an extravaganza for 250 guests.

Nikki believes the low-cost trend is here to stay.

“We converted an existing warehouse into our main wedding chapel, and the existing office space was converted into a place for gatherings and photos,” she said.

Aside from ceremonies, Truehart Wedding Chapel takes care of the paperwork involved with destination weddings and civil ceremonies. They also offer photo backdrops in the auxiliary space, a feature which Nikki says most chapels don’t have.

“We’re a modern twist on a wedding chapel. This isn’t your grandmother’s chapel,” she said. “People seem to appreciate that about us.”

A resident of Philadelphia, Nikki came across the building as she was looking to buy a home in the Glenside area.

“I was looking to buy a home, and ended up leasing a building instead,” she said. “Now that that’s out of the way, I can start house-hunting in Glenside again.”

“We’ve had great reviews for our services so far. Everything’s going well, and everyone’s been welcoming and supportive,” Nikki said. “I’ve always loved the old school charm of Glenside and thought this business would be a nice addition.”
