Scarritt Bennett is a wonderful venue!
Scarritt Bennett was the perfect venue for my wedding! They were so accommodating and easy to work with! Meg especially was wonderful! The church is stunning! They provided a list of vendors that were excellent- I ended up using a coordinator, florist, and musician that they recommended and everything turned out amazing!(photos from @abbybekahphoto)Sent on 04/19/2021

Most magical wedding venue in Nashville!
Wightman Chapel at Scarritt Bennett is the most magical place we could have gotten married! The day was stunning and beautiful and everything executed flawlessly. The weather was perfect, so we had the sun beaming through the stain glass for our 3pm ceremony. Meg was such a rock in our wedding planning, as we booked the Chapel before the pandemic, and then chose to continue with our original date, but much smaller group. On the day of, we were able to get into the bridal suite next door right on arrival, where we took photos and waited for the time to ultimately come. We hired a pianist who used the one available in the chapel. They do not lie about the acoustics in there, I could hear our beautiful music while hiding waiting to walk down the aisle. We also got lucky that the spring blooms happened our wedding weekend so all our photos on the grounds afterward are breathtaking. I couldn't recommend this venue more. It's worth every penny and more! Thank you Meg!Sent on 03/26/2021
