Dream wedding venue!
The Scottish Rite was a dream venue from the start, but it far exceeded our expectations! The venue itself took our breath away...as it did for all of our guests. Grace is an absolute blessing as she is quick to respond, super accommodating, and just an overall incredible coordinator throughout the whole process. She answered all of my questions so patiently, and worked closely with me to make sure my wedding day was everything I imagined it to be. We had in town and out of town guests that were in awe of the venue and the beautiful backdrop it provided for our wedding! The ease of having Kahn's partnered with them made for the best and easiest wedding planning experience! I would HIGHLY recommend Grace and the Scottish Rite team!Sent on 07/09/2019

We couldn’t have imagined a better place to have our reception. The quality of service we received went beyond our expectations. Not to mention the Scottish Rite is absolutely beautiful with such ornate details. Thank you for making our day so special and stress-free!Sent on 05/21/2019
I had the honor of presiding over a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Scottish Rite recently and I was pleasantly pleased with all of what the facility had to offer. My couple were amazed at the class of workmanship , the space, the mode setting, the works! No to mention all of the helpful people that work there as well. The Scottish Rite offers everyone a great wedding venue. Rev. Ida-May Hanson Happy Ever After Wedding Officiants
