Alumnae House Dining Room

The historic charm and architecture of Alumnae House provide a sophisticated and elegant setting for wedding receptions, whether they are small, intimate gatherings or larger affairs. The grand Living Room, with its stunning triptych, grand piano, and period furnishings, provides ample space for cocktails and dancing. The walnut-paneled Dining Room seats up to 100 guests with a variety of table configurations. A lush garden terrace is available during the warmer months, while our wood-burning fireplaces create a warm and welcoming ambiance when it’s cold outside.

Although the Dining Room only seats up to 100 guests, Alumnae House can accommodate larger receptions when a seated meal is not required.

All guest rooms may be blocked by the couple for the entire weekend, making Alumnae House a convenient home-base for the wedding party and their families.
