My husband and I got married at the alumni house on September 13th 2015. The venue is beautiful and very reasonably priced to rent (Sunday was cheaper) Bon appetite was fabulous, I was supposed to have a day of corrdinator and that never happened so one of the employees at Bon appetit (Simona we LOVED her) ended up being the day of corrdinator and being in charge of the food. ...that's where my good review ends. Not once through our entire planning process did we deal with the same people until maybe a month before my wedding. The first two people we dealt with (Jessica and Amy) set up meetings with us, we attended those meetings had discussions about all of our important selections for our special day and then it seemed like they disappeared and people took over who had no idea what had already been discussed and planned for our day. 3 months away from our wedding we had new people we were dealing with then, once more about a month before my wedding the people changed again. For the most part the employees that we dealt with through out the process were professional but whoever is in charge of event services and bon appetit should have taken some responsibility and communicated with my mother and I about what the hell was going on. On our wedding day the table arrangements were incorrect (we went over these 3 times with the events services) the alumni house only had 2 bathrooms and one of those is right next to where the bride gets ready so at one point they made guests go into where I was getting ready all because they didn't want people upstairs. This is ridiculous and once again unorganized also we paid for 2 bar tenders as well as a day of corrdinator and neither of those happened, thank god for Simona who ran the entire evening and bartended at one point. My wedding turned out beautiful and everything I wanted thanks to Bon appetit, my DJ and photographer and my wonderful family. But to other brides I wouldn't recommend the U of R.

My husband and I were very excited to have our wedding at my alma mater. I couldn't think of a nicer place... the campus is gorgeous any time of year and there are many different venues to choose from. They had hosted same-sex weddings before so that was a plus as well. We had our ceremony in front of the Admin Building which has a terrific mountain view and the reception on the north patio of the Hall of Letters. The staff is great - very responsive and provided tremendous help in planning. The catering service provides an event coordinator who is there for the duration of the event - she was great in keeping things moving along. It was a great experience, low-stress for us, and everyone had a great time. I'd definitely recommend to anyone.

Our only disappointment was the last minute change in coordinator for the day. Glory did a wonderful job, but she wasn't aware we had discussed a dining table for the " elders" either near the food area, or even inside the house on a 90 + degree day. The result is the slow moving 80 year olds ended up with the farthest table away from the activity. This included our parents and other elderly guests. It is true, we did not do assigned seating, but it wouldn't have happened had the same coordinator been assigned.

We are very happy we chose the University of Redlands for our wedding. The Alumni House is a beautiful setting. The staff was very helpful and always available for questions. The university only uses one caterer but the food was very good and they had lots of options to choose from. The caterer also provides coordinators for the event and kept things running smoothly. The price was somewhere in the middle compared to other places we looked at but we felt we got more for our money here.

I grew up in this area and always loved this campus, from the beautiful architecture to the breathtaking landscaping; so when my now husband and I started look for wedding venues, this one was at the top of the list, and as soon as we took a tour of the Alumni House, we both fell in love. I couldn't have been more impressed with the event planning team they have on staff, they were all so friendly, helpful, and attentive. You have to use their catering company, but rest assured, their food is amazing, I didn't hear one negative comment about our food. If you're looking for a beautiful wedding at an affordable price, you should definitely take a look at this place.

We had a lovely day with no mishaps. Wish the staff could have been a little more responsive and helpful the day of, but I know there were multiple events going on that day, so they were spread thin. Would definitely recommend.

I used the alumni house as the spot on campus that we got married. I love the grounds of the university and was very excited to get married at such a beautiful place. There are so many places to chose from to have the wedding and reception which is nice because we had friends get married here as well but choosing a different location on campous makes it such a different wedding. The event office and staff were so nice, I mainly worked with a women named Kathy. They also allowed us to do a payment plan to pay for the venue which helped us out a lot. the only thing I did not like about the Universty is that we had to use their catering which made our wedding a little bit more expensive then we wanted. The venue itself was not that expensive which is nice but they do get you with the catering.
