A repeat winner of the Toast of Nashville’s “Best Places to Get Married” and The Knot’s “Best of Weddings,” the venues at Scarritt Bennett Center’s historic campus are among the most picturesque in the city.
Wightman Chapel, our most popular wedding venue, with its sweeping gothic architecture, stained glass windows, organ and expansive altar provides a dramatic context for a sophisticated, upscale event for up to 300 guests. For more intimate gatherings, Scarritt Bennett Center’s Skinner Chapel is a cozy, private venue for inspiring ceremonies on a smaller scale. Accommodating up to 20 guests, Skinner chapel’s stained glass and original woodwork provide a sentimental, nostalgic feel for a unique, highly personal gathering. For those who prefer an outdoor ceremony, our beautifully landscaped grounds pocketed among the sweeping facades of the center’s historic architecture create a lively, picturesque setting for those who are seeking a lush natural context. Weddings involve much more than just the ceremonies, however, and Scarritt Bennett Center has a variety of venues to provide the perfect ambience for all of the pre-ceremony festivities. If you are looking for a lush, dramatic backdrop for bridal portraits or a sophisticated venue for non-alcoholic showers, banquets or rehearsal dinners, the historic campus at Scarritt Bennett Center provides a wealth of possibilities as you look to host your events.
Scarritt Bennett Center is also the perfect venue to host a number of special events, including but not limited to memorial services, awards banquets, receptions, seated dinners, fundraising galas, luncheons, art shows and film screenings. Our on-site catering services make event planning easy with customized gourmet menus and delicious artisan-quality offerings. Whatever form your dream wedding or special event takes, whether you envision the event on a small or sweeping scale or with a classy, historic or rustic feel, the venues at Scarritt Bennett Center will bring your vision to life.
