About William & Mary Alumni House

Congratulations on your engagement! We are so happy for you and appreciate your interest in the William & Mary Alumni House as a possible venue for your big day. It would be our pleasure to have you and your guests celebrate on our historic campus, located in the heart of Williamsburg, Virginia. We are less than an hour’s drive from both downtown Richmond and the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Close to local hotels, restaurants and historic sites, the Alumni House offers both modern and Colonial charm in a beautiful, accessible location.

The historic section of the Alumni House, the Bright House, dates back to the 1860’s, and was built on a parcel of land called “New Hope.” The House was transformed and expanded in the late 1990’s with the addition of a grand ballroom, terrace, and bricked plaza. And now, our current expansion and renovation project will make the Alumni House the largest independent social gathering space in Williamsburg with nearly 55,000 square feet!

Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be a graduate of William & Mary in order to host your celebration at the Alumni House. In fact, since becoming home to the William & Mary Alumni Association in 1971, the Alumni House has been chosen by countless couples- William & Mary alums, as well as those seeking a Tidewater Virginia destination experience for their Big Day.

With both indoor and outdoor spaces available, the Alumni House can easily accommodate small, intimate weddings as well as large gatherings of up to 400 guests. The Alumni House allows flexibility in regard to catering and other wedding vendors, in order to provide couples with the option to truly make the day their own.

At the William & Mary Alumni House, our goal is to help make your wedding day visions a reality. You can depend on our team to walk with you every step of the way, allowing you to enjoy the planning process. It would be our pleasure to further discuss our services and/or schedule a meeting with you to answer any questions that you may have.

    Ensure your vendors work closely with the reception venue. Reception venues often have preferred vendors with whom they have a good working relationship. Take advantage of those vendors because it'll make life so much easier.

    Cindy was amazing helping us on our crazy journey getting married. We live completely across the country but Cindy was always there to answer a call or an email if we had questions. She was also vey helpful in leading us to other potential vendors. The staff was terrific is setting everything up exactly where it needed to be. The building looked fantastic for the wedding and all our guests loved it! We couldn't have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding and highly suggest the Alumni House!
