Our Story

Going to the Chapel… was founded by CDR Jane Richman, USN, Retired, Navy protocol officer, Navy wife and Marine Corps mother.  We are an independent consulting service available exclusively to couples planning a Naval Academy Chapel wedding.  In a class by ourselves, we have created our own distinct approach to military wedding planning.  We offer honest advice and appropriate direction in the selection of vendors, venues, and logistics specific to Naval Academy weddings.  Our experience in military event planning, protocol and etiquette combined with your vision and ideas collectively create the moment.  We are by your side every step of the way from pre-wedding, to the rehearsal, to the "Day Of."
