    Truly A Dream Wedding Venue

    This place is incredibly beautiful!! We cannot say enough good things about our experience with The Scottish Rite. From the very first correspondence all the way through to our event we dealt with a profession team that truly cares about their client's experience. The planning process was efficient and detail-oriented making sure we were covering all our bases, but also making sure we were spending our time effectively. Grace and the rest of the team are excellent at their jobs and made sure we had the absolute perfect wedding experience. This venue speak for itself. All of my guests were asking "How did you find this place?". My absolute favorite part of doing the first dance on the main floor with all of the guests over-looking on the balcony, truly magical. Could not have imagined a more spectacular venue. Thank you for all the great work you did leading up to and during our special day!!!

    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!

    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
