We do weddings and events at Scarritt Bennett often. We love Scarritt and everyone that works there. They are a true blessing.

Scarring Bennett is such a beautiful location. I love playing the harp here!

Loved working with Scarritt-Bennett for the weddings I have shot there. Great place for bridal portraits and wedding venue.

Scarritt Bennett is a gorgeous Nashville gem with a rich history, so it makes for a beautiful wedding venue, but what really puts it over the top is how great the SB team is at helping your carry out your wedding vision! We've worked with a lot of venue reps, and we were so pleasantly surprised by how great Amber, Rachel, and the rest of the SB team were at responding to our emails, phone calls, and helping at the actual wedding! If you want a beautiful, historic venue that also cares about you on your wedding day, Scarritt Bennett should be at the top of your list!
