    Perfect Wedding Venue For Our Ceremony and Reception!

    The Scottish Rite Cathedral was the perfect venue choice for our wedding ceremony & reception. There are multiple options for room size and style, which makes this venue fit for any wedding. Our assistant Grace was excellent in helping us plan our Wedding from out of town. They were incredibly flexible and accommodating to our schedule. The staff made a seamless transition from our ceremony in the south lounge to our cocktail hour and reception in the ballroom. Our guests raved about the elegance and uniqueness of the space! We were so happy with our choice and strongly recommend SRC to other couples!

    Wedding of Our Dreams

    My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams on November 3rd! Grace was so easy to communicate with. She responded to emails or calls quickly and was both knowledgable and kind. My husband and I wouldn't have changed a thing about our wedding. Our guests had an amazing time too!

    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
