Package Details
Labyrinth Garden

The Labyrinth Garden is our beautiful round garden containing one of only two permanent outdoor prayer labyrinths in Nashville. An international peace pole stands in the garden’s west end, with “May Peace Prevail on Earth” written in seven languages. Cherry blossoms and dogwood trees burst with color in the spring, ripen to a vibrant summer green, then transform into a rich, multi-colored canopy in the fall. Our historic bell tower creates the perfect, breathtaking backdrop for your garden ceremony, and the space easily converts to an open or tented reception after you say, “I do.”

Scarritt Bennett Center is home to one of Nashville's finest elopement venues, Skinner Chapel. You can build a custom ceremony or destination wedding in Skinner Chapel and make your special, intimate day just what you imagined. Our beautiful, historic chapel seats just 20 guests. That's enough room for you and your partner, your closest friends and family, and your officiant.

But don't be fooled by the smaller size—these simple ceremonies still teem with breathtaking beauty.


Want an elopement where everything is built for you? If you're looking for a pre-set elopement package, we proudly work with Rich Events. Their team provides excellent, quality elopement packages for couples who want to keep things easy and elegant. To learn more about what they offer, visit


You may have heard about the gothic stone archways and stunning historic doors on our campus. Some couples fall madly in love with the Southern Gothic architecture, and we love it when clients want to get creative with their ceremony backdrops. If you're interested in eloping right under the arches, we'd love to make that happen for you. Pricing and availability vary.
