Nashville Elopement or Local Couples: Skinner Chapel is the Perfect Affordable Nashville Wedding Chapel for Small Weddings

Skinner Chapel is a small chapel located on the campus of the Scarritt-Bennett Center near Vanderbilt Hospital. (see photos at end of post)

Many are familiar with the larger Wightman Chapel on the campus, but may not have noticed this smaller chapel that sits between Wightman and the campus library.

Skinner Chapel seats about 20 guests, so we are talking smaller weddings here. But it’s perfect for many intimate weddings, and I think if more people knew about this place, it would get used even more than it is.

And the cost? $300! That’s it. You get the chapel for up to three hours, and that includes using the entire campus grounds for photos just the same as those couples that pay much more to use Wightman Chapel. Lots of Gothic brick buildings and large trees for beautiful photo backdrops.

Oh yes, they have candles you can use too.

You would need a wedding officiant, and whatever else you’d like to include such as flowers, decorations, photographer (see note below), etc.

Still with the cost of the chapel so low, you could still pull off a very affordable and very nice wedding.

Note: my daughter-in-law has her degree in photography and has a simple, inexpensive photography package. She has some availability and might be able to help you if you are interested.
