Wedding Venues

Skinner Chapel

For more intimate gatherings, Scarritt Bennett Center’s Skinner Chapel is a cozy, private venue for inspiring ceremonies on a smaller scale. With seating for up to 20 guests, Skinner Chapel’s stained glass and original woodwork provide a sentimental, nostalgic feel for a unique, highly personal gathering.

The Social Rooms

Before the big day, wedding parties need a place to get dressed. Couples who book Wightman Chapel have the option to get ready at Scarritt Bennett in the Social Rooms in Bennett Hall, which is the building just next to Wightman Chapel. This space can also be booked separately for a cocktail hour or reception after the wedding.

Outdoor Venues

For those who prefer an outdoor ceremony, our beautifully landscaped grounds pocketed among the sweeping facades of the center’s historic architecture create a lively, picturesque setting for those who are seeking a lush natural context. Weddings involve much more than just the ceremonies, however, and Scarritt Bennett Center has a variety of venues to provide the perfect ambience for all of the pre-ceremony festivities.
