About Whittemore House

The Whittemore House serves as the private faculty club for Washington University, located at 6440 Forsyth in Clayton. The Whittemore House underwent extensive renovations in early 2013. Its many large fireplaces and hand-crafted woodwork make it a wonderfully charming venue for wedding receptions. Outdoor entertaining is a must with the covered terrace, which overlooks the expansive backyard. To rent this facility you must be sponsored by a member of the club. Please call us for details on being sponsored.

    Love, love, loved whittemore!

    We were looking for a reception venue that had beautiful charm and character to minimize the chaos and cost of decorating. This house was the perfect size for our ~100 wedding guests. The living room was converted into the dance floor, and toasts were in the foyer. It was intimate, and allowed guests to socialize away from the music, but still be part of the party. Each time we visited in the lead up to the wedding in was daylight and gorgeous. Our wedding night was the first time we saw it after dark and we were so excited to see it was a million times more gorgeous with the lights dimmed and fireplaces roaring. We wish we could rent this house for every party we have!!

    We had our rehearsal dinner here the night before our wedding and everything about it was amazing. My grandpa was a professor at Wash U and had their 50th Anniversary party to my grandma. My aunt had also gotten married there 30 years ago. So I have known about this place and it was on our radar. While it was too small to hold our actual reception, we thought it would make a great place for a reception. We get to have the house to ourselves which was perfect since the weather was amazing and everyone gathered outside at first for drinks and cocktails. When dinner was ready, we all moved inside and the dinner was intimate and cozy. The staff was great, no one had a shortage of drinks or food at any point. The house is also beautiful in itself and would make a great place to hold any event, rehearsal, ceremony, and/or reception.
