    No need to look elsewhere for a wedding venue!!!!! We had our daughter's wedding at the SRC in the ballroom this past weekend and we are still reeling from the incredible night we had. The ballroom was transformed exactly how we pictured it would be. The staff was extremely attentive, professional and courteous to our all of our guests and especially our VIP guests! Kahn's Catering did not disappoint. We are still receiving rave reviews from friends/family regarding the beautiful venue and the food. We had our cocktail hour in the mezzanine so that our guests could watch unobstructed views of the Bride and Groom dance their first dance below us. Words cannot express how happy we are that we chose SRC. It is a night we will never forget! Grace was wonderful to work with and is very professional and accommodating. Freddie from Kahn's Catering did an exquisite job helping us decide on a menu. Hors d'oeuvres were a big hit. The only suggestion I would have is to make sure everything you want is correctly written on the BEO.

    When you think of your wedding day you want everything to be perfect. Also, to be able to enjoy the special day with family and friends. Well, we had exactly that. In our experience, planning things out with two years apart was not very convenient, sometimes things might get a little out of place. And then this is when having a such wonderful event Manager like Grace Klinger, and catering Manager Heidi Melton made our experience AMAZING. During the planning process both were super flexible with our hectic work schedules, very reliable, and professionals. We were worried that our family could not enjoy the food, because of the diverse cultures; well Khan’s catering had outstanding options for us and me being the only vegetarian in the family it was very nice to be able to enjoy a delicious meal in my special day.
    The day of the wedding went so smoothly, and they handled anything that came up. I could truly relax and enjoy the day! The venue was absolutely gorgeous for our ceremony and reception! We received so many compliments on the venue and the catering, and I could not be happier with our choice. We are forever grateful for all you’ve done to make our wedding the best day ever!

    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
