The Burguières Family Chapel of the Sacred Heart is a favorite venue for alumnae weddings. More than 100 young women have exchanged their vows under the star ceiling of the chapel since its opening.
As an alum, I always knew I wanted to get married in the chapel. Chris, my husband, must have known it, too. He even proposed to me in the chapel after my first year back as a faculty member. He arranged for me to be called out of one of our post-service faculty meetings and surprised me in the middle of my favorite spot on campus. Despite me never having to say it out loud, he clearly knew what a special place Duchesne holds in my heart. There is no other place on Earth I would rather have said, “I do.”
