It will bring you closer to God, and to parishioners, Or in this case, parishioner? Not only does the Cross Island Chapel in Oneida claim to be the World's Smallest Church, but this roadside wonder also resides on a tiny island in a pond! This means it literally is a perfect size if you want a small wedding. No room for that annoying Aunt or Uncle here!

If you would like a wedding ceremony or prayer session for two, this tiny house of worship is a 1-hour 45-minute drive from Albany and is open for public reservations!
