The Taylor Planning Commission voted unanimously last night to approve the addition of The Chapel at Plein Air – a 230 seat chapel designed to enhance the wedding offering at the Plein Air neighborhood in Taylor.
In 2013 Plein Air introduced The Mill, a 12,000 square foot entertainment and meeting venue for receptions and corporate meetings, and it has served as host for more than 50 wedding receptions since that time.
“The chapel was really the next logical step for us,”said Plein Air developer Campbell McCool. “This will enable a bride to get married in our chapel, then walk 50 feet to one of the most unique venues in Mississippi -The Mill – for the reception.”
The chapel was designed by noted southern architect John Tee with the intent of looking like a 100 year old delta church. The exterior will be salvaged pine siding with a metal roof, the windows have come from a church in Kentucky, and the oak pews came out of the Jerusalem Baptist Church in Virginia. “This is going to be a very simple, beautiful, and elegant chapel” McCool said.
Construction is set to begin in October with a projected finish date of February 2016.
