“A HUGE thank you to you and your amazing staff - everything was absolutely effortless; our big day went perfectly, thanks in large part to you guys. So glad we chose the Alumni House for our wedding: people loved the location, and I can't tell you how many guests said, "That was the best wedding food I've ever had!" You really made our planning easy, too. Thanks for everything!”
