    Dream Venue Come True!

    This venue is a dream! We had SRC on our list as our number on choice even before we got engaged, so we knew we would love it. However, we did not expect the service to be so wonderful, too! So, the venue is beautiful, the service was very responsive, the staff was helpful, and the building is clean and spacious for large weddings. We had our whole event there, which started in the South Lounge for a pre-cocktail, moved to the Theater for our ceremony, then the balcony for post-cocktails, and finally we partied in the ballroom. The whole event was on time, flowed well, and the staff worked great with our planner. You can tell that Kahn’s and Grace communicate well, and they work together to ensure everything runs smoothly. We would have our wedding here again, again, again, and again! We loved it here!

    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
