Wedding Receptions & Special Events

You may also consider hosting the reception, engagement party, or rehearsal dinner in one of our many unique venues. Our in-house culinary team will create custom menus including seasonal and regional fare to make your event memorable.


Alumni are encouraged to reminisce while using the beautiful Georgian architecture and meticulously manicured grounds as the backdrop for their wedding and engagement photos. All photography sessions are required to be scheduled, in advance, with the Office of Conference Services to prevent scheduling conflicts. There is no charge for Alumni to use the campus for their pictures, however special event insurance is required.
