Looking For Ways To Celebrate A Wedding Or Engagement In Downtown Naperville? Look No Further Than Pinot’s Palette!Join us for a new, amazing, and customizable painting on September 25th!
There are so many great things about Fall. The weather cools, the leaves begin to change, and there are a whole lot of weddings! Take advantage of one of our newest paintings and join us to create this one of a kind masterpiece that anyone with a love of Naperville will fall head-over-heels for! One of our talented artists, Angela, came up with this painting, specifically designed to embrace the history and beauty of Downtown Naperville. If you or anyone you know is getting married in or around the area (especially in the church from the painting, ‘Century Memorial Chapel’), or if there is someone who holds the city, near and dear to their heart, this is the painting for them!
We enjoy tailoring our paintings to our customers' needs and preferences so they can really appreciate the art they make, and have it hold a special meeting to them. This is a great example of one of the paintings, meant for our local customers and fellow-lovers of Naperville. If you’re a native or a long-time resident of the area, you likely know all about this historic church and the stories behind it. It’s a quaint, lovely little chapel that has housed hundreds of happy couples tying the knot throughout the last 50 years and we LOVE it for it’s architectural structure and long history. While the painting was designed by a Naperville artist and calls it’s ‘home' our studio in the Downtown Naperville area, this painting will be used, Nationally, by our 160+ studios. Anyone, anywhere in the US can create this masterpiece, personalizing it with the date and names of their choice, making it a great painting for ANYONE who might be getting married!
Enjoy a little information about the history of the church that is the star of this painting!
St. John’s Episcopal Church, built in 1864 and was the place of worship for many years until the town outgrew it's small size. They soon needed more room so they doubled the church’s capacity by adding a wider middle section during the 1870s. The congregation worshipped in the building until the late 1960s.
In 1969 a group of concerned Naperville residents rescued the church, which was threatened with demolition by new development. They formed the Naperville Heritage Society, raising money to move the church to land owned by the City of Naperville. The church was deconsecrated and its name changed to Century Memorial Chapel to commemorate its historic place in the community. The successful relocation of the Chapel to this site sparked awareness of historic preservation in Naperville and formed the cornerstone of Naper Settlement.
The Century Memorial Chapel was built in 1864 by the congregation of St. John’s Episcopal Church in the Gothic Revival style, a design movement inspired by medieval European architecture. In 1970 the Chapel was moved from Jefferson Avenue and Ellsworth Street to Naper Settlement.
Naper Settlement was established in 1969 by a group of individuals who were interested in saving St. John's Episcopal Church from demolition. The group, called the Naperville Heritage Society, was a grassroots effort of community members who raised the funds to have the historic church transferred to the grounds of the Martin Mitchell Mansion. The church has been renamed Century Memorial Chapel and is the site of many special events, from weddings to recitals.

2. For a proposal:
If you’ve been thinking about the perfect, unique way to propose to the one you love or if you perhaps have a friend that’s contemplating it, we’d love to suggest Pinot’s Palette Naperville! If you’re living or visiting in or around the area and need a place to pop the question, look no further than our fabulous painting and wine classes! We have an incredible staff, eager to assist you with this special event in any way you may need. Our past proposals have contacted us a week to a few days before (or as far out as you’d like...), and worked closely with our staff to devise the perfect plan of action.
Once you’ve decided that Pinot’s Palette is the perfect spot for this memorable event in your life, the next step is to figure out how you’d like to arrange it. You can come in to one of our public classes and paint along with a room full of people who will be incredibly happy for you and your new fiancé, OR plan a private event for a more intimate proposal. There have been dozens of proposals, held at many of our locations across the US, where the happy couples painting together and one person adds the words, ‘Will you marry me?’ onto their canvas, without the other person knowing what’s happening. There’s something so incredible about the person who is being asked this life-changing question, looking over to see the one they love so much, asking them the question they want most, and seeing the happiness and tears in their eyes as they answer, “Yes!”. This would be a great painting to bring someone to and propose to them on the canvas, painted with this historic and romantic landmark!
