Fantastic Venue and Exceptional Service!
The W&M Alumni House is such a fantastic place to host your wedding! As an alum, I had high standards for my alma mater and they exceeded those expectations. My husband and I were married here in March 2018 and everything went smoothly. Renee, our coordinator, consistently went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. From our initial meeting a year before our big day to congratulatory emails following our honeymoon (and 1 year anniversary!), Renee proved to be an invaluable asset to our wedding planning.Sent on 04/08/2019

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.Sent on 03/31/2018
