[Venue] Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center – Save 15% With Us!

Last week, I had the honor of vising the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center for a lovely brunch! They invited me to a lovely lunch, and to get an in depth tour of the space so that I could bring some brides to visit! It really is a beautiful space, and while many people don’t think of college campus as an ideal space for an upscale wedding, this space is definitely far from the norm. Some pictures and facts on this space are below, as well as information on how we can save you money on your booking!
