I can’t say enough good things about our experience with the Faculty House. Yvette and Scott carried our day with such grace and made sure the space was fully prepped with what we needed. I’d trust them one hundred times over. Don’t hesitate to book here! They were wildly considerate with our budget and helped us customize the perfect day.

Emerald, Leslie, and the staff were wonderful! We worked closely with Emerald, who communicated with us throughout the entire process, provided multiple drafts of table set-ups, and always inquired internally when we had a question or specific request. I did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding. Emerald took care of all the details, and followed the schedule and my notes to make sure everyone was where they had to be!

We loved our wedding reception at the Columbia Faculty House! The staff were incredibly thoughtful and accommodating throughout our planning process and on the event day. They let us store our decorations and serve our own homemade beer (!), set everything up perfectly, had plenty of snacks for us while we got ready in the morning, and thoughtfully packed up our cake, flowers and gifts before the end of the night. We never had to worry about the details. The tall windows, natural lighting and terrace on the 4th Floor were spectacular and let us have the best of both worlds with indoor and outdoor space. We chose the stations option for our dinner, which allowed for a flexible menu that catered to everyone's tastes and dietary restrictions. The entrees, passed hors d'oeuvres and drinks were all superb. We had a total of 80 guests which felt perfect on the 4th floor, though it could easily have fit a few more.
