    Besides the house being absolutely beautiful, inside and out - the staff here made the wedding planning process a lot less stressful. I was planning from a distance and could only make a trip up to Cortland 2-3 times over the entire year of planning. Shaunna and LuAnn were always in constant communication with me, and even my other vendors. I cannot thank Shaunna, LuAnn and their team enough for all their hard work and dedication to make sure we had the most perfect day possible!!

    My husband and I got married at The Alumni house on October 6,2012. Our day was more than we could have imagined. I am a professional wedding planner so naturally I take note of all aspects of an event- The Alumni House staff and Rich went above and beyond the entire planning process. We live in Cape May NJ so planning was difficult being long distance. Rich made sure that all details were taken care of which made us extremely comfortable. The house itself is absolutely stunning and the accommodations were wonderful for our out of town family. I would recommend this venue time and time again. Thank you Rich and staff for a day that we will never forget!!!!!!
