From our Guests...

It (SBC) is a gem. The location, parking, proximity to restaurants, campus with natural settings... C. Burger

It was an unbelievable evening! The dining room looked so lovely, the food delicious, beautifully served...Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you did to make it such a special night. You took care of all the details and everything went so smoothly...It truly was a magical night! - Jim and Kitty

The building (Wightman Chapel) is beautiful, the grounds are beautifully landscaped, the staff worked with us patiently and diligently to make Katie and Chris have a wedding experience they’ll never forget! I would recommend you to everyone. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. L. Oaks

Excellent staff & support. Just perfect! J. Hoffman, Edgehill UMC

Great atmosphere; friendly staff. B. Hill; Oasis Center

Perfect site for our wedding ceremony! Easy to work with, efficient staff. Thank you! We LOVED our wedding! A. Curtis, Brentwood, TN

I [wanted] to let you know just how wonderful everything was for us at Scarritt-Bennett. Everybody involved really gave a “thumbs up” on Scarritt-Bennett. The Governor’s Office thought the location was wonderful and was truly impressed with the greeting, attention to detail, food and the meeting space. I can’t adequately express how appreciative I was to be working with you on this event. A simple thank you just doesn’t seem to have the emphasis that I need. S. McMillan, Assistant to the Commissioner, TN Dept. of Correction, Criminal Justice Summit

I just wanted to…say thank you! The banquet room turned out beautiful, the food was amazing, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! J. Foulk, Chi Beta Chi

The staff is accommodating and efficient and very helpful. Beautiful surroundings. Everyone is very pleasant and helpful. I enjoy calling and feel they are happy to answer my questions and take care of details. I especially commend Kenny and his availability and attention to detail. He genuinely desires that our meetings are successful. J.Cordoba, Chicago, IL

Want you to know how deeply grateful I am for all your amazing help creating the event this past weekend. I’ll never be such a ‘newbie’ to large meetings, and will recommend you and the center whenever I have the opportunity. K. Whitney, Ph.D., Minister for Higher and Theological Education, United Church of Christ, Cleveland, Ohio

The Chapel alone sealed the deal…I really truly enjoyed getting married there. The staff…did an excellent job accommodating me and all my wedding needs. I highly recommend Wightman Chapel.
John and Emma, Franklin TN
