    Amazing Venue!

    The UVM Alumni House was the absolute perfect choice for our wedding reception. The space is beautiful, both the restored historic house as well as the new pavilion space. Upon our first visit my husband and I were both impressed with the beauty and history of the space and how warm and inviting it felt. The entire team that we worked with from the Alumni House was helpful, organized and efficient and super responsive to all of our questions and communication leading up to our wedding. One of my favorite things about having our reception at the Alumni House was we had use of almost the entire space (both floors of the historic house and porches as well as the pavilion) for the whole day. It was a beautiful setting for me and my bridesmaids to get ready in the morning and when guests arrived for the reception, everyone was able to find a nook or space in the house to mingle and relax that felt cozy and inviting. After looking at other wedding venues in the Burlington area, nothing compares to the value and beauty of the Alumni House.

    The best venue in Burlington

    My wife and I got married at the UVM Alumni House this June, and we couldn't have found a better place for our special day. The Main House is beautiful with tons of incredible, historic details, while the new Pavilion is modern with the right touches to make it feel consistent with the house that it is attached to. The whole staff went above and beyond in assisting us with every detail necessary to make our dream wedding come true.

    Andrea and the staff at UVM Alumni House were a true pleasure to work with, and we’re so glad we held the farewell brunch for our wedding at this beautiful space. Finding an affordable and elegant venue in Burlington is tricky, and we feel like we really lucked out. Our guests were charmed by the architecture, and we were thrilled to find a find a space that fit our needs so perfectly. Andrea was incredibly helpful during the planning process to make sure our event went smoothly, and we’d really recommend the UVM Alumni House for anyone looking for an enjoyable event experience.
