Best Wedding Venue!
We hosted our wedding ceremony & reception at the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center in February and it was absolutely perfect! We hosted our ceremony in the back amphitheater and it was the perfect space for our 160 guests! The creek behind us provided stunning photos! Our cocktail hour took place in the Main Lounge and the dinner and dancing in the Ballroom! The Rosemary's Catering team worked with us to create the perfect decor & set-up for our guests! Their team was knowledgeable, friendly and an absolute pleasure to work with! It was a beautiful venue with the perfect team to make our wedding day absolutely amazing!Sent on 06/01/2020

We worked with Rachel Sommer to coordinate our wedding reception. Rachel was prompt and professional in her emails, and she was a delight during our in-person meetings. The venue itself was excellent, as was all the staff who were onsite. We have zero regrets!Sent on 06/19/2019

Phenomenal experience at this gorgeous venue! We used the outdoor back area for our ceremony, had cocktails on the wraparound terrace and held the reception in the Ballroom. Everything was absolutely perfect. The staff at the Alumni Center is wonderful to work with! I received so many compliments on how wonderful and gorgeous our wedding was!Sent on 05/01/2019
