Scarritt Bennett Center made me confident the ENTIRE way through my planning and ceremony that everything would work out perfectly. They are very professional and wonderful to work with, and there isn't a single spot inside or outside of the venue that isn't picture-perfect.

Our daughter recently got married at the most beautiful place in Nashville, Wightman Chapel at Scarritt Bennett. This is our second daughter to get married there. The experience was absolutely wonderful! We hired Nicole as our wedding coordinator (rehearsal and wedding). She was outstanding. She took care of everything and made the wedding day stress free. Our daughter had her dream wedding. Many thanks to Scarritt Bennett and Nicole.Sent on 09/27/2018

We had our wedding ceremony at Scarritt Bennett Center in the Skinner Chapel. Our intimate wedding ceremony consisted of 20 family members. Nicole Thrift was very accommodating when I was choosing the date/time of my ceremony as well as planning the logistics. Although they do not provide rehearsal times for the Skinner Chapel they were very flexible and accommodating by allowing two separate follow up site visits. The wedding venue site has such a natural beauty and character it allowed for simple and complimentary floral and decor. The Skinner Chapel does not provide dressing and/or holding rooms however they do allow you to use their welcome center which is located right next door and was equally as beautiful as the chapel and rest of the campus. I had decided to not do a first look with the groom and the welcome center allowed for me and my bridal party to relax and hang out with out being seen before the ceremony. I would highly recommend the Skinner Chapel at the Scarritt Bennett Center if you are interested in having a small and intimate wedding ceremony.Sent on 10/02/2018
