At Scarritt Bennett Center, we recognize that this a tricky time for couples to plan a wedding. We want you to have the special day you’ve always dreamed of. In order to accommodate couples who are marrying during the COVID-19 crisis, we are now offering two types of packages: Classic and Intimate. For all weddings, we are using heightened sanitation and safety methods in accordance with CDC guidelines in order to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Classic Packages

Our Classic Wedding Packages allow you to build the custom wedding of your dreams. You choose the venue, the time slot, the flowers, the officiant, etc. Our Classic packages include a 4-hour use of the wedding space plus the ability to get ready on campus in our historic Social Rooms. Classic packages do not come with in-house coordination, but the service can be added separately.

Intimate Packages

Our Intimate Wedding Packages do all the heavy lifting for you. These are for couples who want to keep their ceremony small without losing that “classic” wedding feel. Intimate packages are for three hours, and include our in-house officiant, in-house day of coordinator, floral packages from our partner floral vendor, and more.

Sometimes, less is more.

Looking to elope? Scarritt Bennett Center welcomes couples who want to elope on our campus in our sweet and beloved Skinner Chapel. If you’re looking for a pre-set elopement package, we proudly work with Rich Events. To learn more about what they offer, visit
