This venue is by far the best in the area. I researched over 25 venues to host our wedding of 160 guests, and Riggs definitely fit the bill. They allow you the flexibility to choose from over 20 preferred caterers unlike other venues that may only have 3-5 options. There's plenty of space to host a cocktail hour in the hallway area and guests are able to easily transition to the reception area that is tailored to your capacity needs. Additionally, the bridal suite was ideal for me and my bridesmaids to relax in prior to the recepetion, and overall, they are priced fairly reasonable compared to others. Cassie was absolutely a pleasure to work with and our special day was absolutely amazing!

Rhea and her team at the Alumni Center were fantastic! They were very professional, organized and also flexible which is what we appreciated most. Everything went smoothly for us and we really loved the friendly and proactive service we received both pre-reception day and on the big day. Thank you Rhea and her team again!

This was a beautiful and spacious facility with plenty of parking for our guests. There is a beautiful garden that comes with the package, as well as two bridal suites. Rhea was an amazing venue coordinator and was very helpful during the planning process and the day of the wedding. I would highly recommend this venue.

The Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center is an AMAZING wedding venue. From the first visit we knew that we had to have our wedding there. The Riggs family are responses very quickly to all questions asked.

My husband and I had our wedding at the Alumni Center on the 22nd of November. It was a very intimate ceremony with only 25 guests. We had the ceremony in the Rotunda and it was perfect. We had our dinner right down the hall and both had suites to get ready in with our families. The day was just what we wanted and cannot thank the staff at the Alumni Center enough. They were extremely professional, helpful, responsive and took care of every last question and detail to ensure we did not have to worry about anything. I would definitely recommend using this venue for anyone considering having their wedding around the DMV area.

Best day ever!!!!! Riggs Alumni Center was gorgeous and incredibly accommodating (guests not related to me confirmed this, so it is not delusional). From the first day that I went to look at the venue, I knew it was the perfect place. Everyone we worked with was awesome and super helpful; they even recommended our caterer to us and the food was spectacular. Rhea was our coordinator- she was very nice and organized and I felt that she really wanted to help make the day special. Even when I fell apart the last week and forgot to pay (!) she was so sweet about it. I recommend this site to anyone that is considering it!
