  • We can't thank Margaret and the Whist Club enough for how unbelievably awesome our wedding and reception was. So many of our guests told us how wonderful Margaret and her team were in making sure everything (the music, the flowers, the food, the whole process) went off without a hitch. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. A wedding is such a complicated process to ensure that all the elements go smoothly and they did a brilliant job. As the bride, it was such a relief that I didn't have to worry on my special day. Such a lovely day! Looking forward to doing our next event at the Whist Club.

  • Margaret and William made our wedding experience 5 star, in fact, if I could rate it more stars I would. The food was delicious, the service was spectacular and of course the grounds are beautiful. Do yourself a favor and book The University and Whist Club for your wedding.

  • We just celebrated our wedding a few weeks ago. We had 78 guests. Our wedding at the University and Whist Club was AMAZING! Not only was the venue beautiful but their package included so much more than other venues that we had gone to look at (i.e. centerpieces, cake, etc). What really sold it for us though was the ability to live stream our wedding to our family in England and South Africa. The picture and sound was so clear they felt like they were truly there for our big day. Our day was perfect. They had snacks and drinks waiting for the wedding party when we arrived. They made sure they brought out some of hors d'oeuvres out to those of us who were missing cocktail hour for pictures. I am still getting so many compliments on how beautiful the building and wedding space was and how great the food was (I highly recommend the chicken oscar and short ribs!). Their house florist Mary Coty made our centerpieces and they were so beautiful and turned out better than we could ha... Read more

  • We got married on December 7th and we are still hearing how amazing and beautiful the Whist Club was!!! Everything and everyone was absolutely outstanding. Margaret from the first time we toured the Whist Club was like a wedding fairy godmother! She does such an amazing job with each couple to create their dream wedding! Margaret answered every email, phone call, vendor call so promptly! We wanted the room set up a certain way and she had us come in to see it to make sure it was what we wanted! William lead the whole whist wedding team at our reception and made sure everything was running promptly and smoothly. Jaime, Nicole and Jeffrey were awesome. So helpful and always checking to make sure we were okay and the wedding party! We had our first look and took bridal party shots prior to our ceremony at the Church. They were setting up everything for the reception and still took the time to ask if we needed water or snacks for our three year old flower girl! The food was to die for! We ... Read more

  • I LOVE the University & Whist Club, I highly recommend this venue. I had my rehearsal dinner, ceremony and wedding reception here. The Whist staff go out of their way to make sure your special day is perfect. Margaret, the Wedding and Banquet Coordinator, was with me every step of the way and always quick to respond to my questions or concerns. She offered many great suggestions and always willing to accommodate our needs. Other staff including William, Jamie, Jeff and Gloria were there to attend to every detail so I would not have to worry about a thing. The food for our rehearsal dinner and wedding was fantastic. The Whist's interior rooms are lovely and inviting. The new ballroom is stunning. We chose to have the ceremony outside and the Whist's grounds were landscaped beautifully for a fall day. The Whist Club is a perfect venue for your wedding or any special event!

  • I honestly have zero complaints about our wedding for 130 guests on a Saturday at 5pm. The U & Whist Club far exceeded our expectations and treated us in a genuine and respectful manner throughout the planning process (which began about 8 months before). Not only were we impressed by the fun and friendly service throughout our wedding (servers, bartenders, bussers), the fantastic food (stuffed chicken, short ribs, veggie pad Thai), and above and beyond decor/ambiance, but our guests have not stopped raving about what a great job this venue did! It’s one thing to be so appreciative for outstanding service at a very affordable cost, but to receive compliments from guests is really wonderful and we are so grateful. Margaret and William were excellent coordinators; staying flexible while keeping us on track. Margaret clearly has plenty of experience with event planning and wedding ideas/short cuts/solutions...a sort of Wedding Whisperer! Jamie, part of the catering team, treated us with ... Read more

  • The Whist was the final place we looked at before deciding on the reception. I am very glad we went with them. Margaret was very flexible and took care of everything so that the evening ran smoothly. There were a few things we had forgotten to iron out beforehand (our bad) but the staff was very efficient and it barely took a moment of time. We had a blast at the reception and so did our guests.

  • Margaret and the whole team at the Whist are fabulous. Everything for our big day went off without a hitch! They were so accommodating with everything & quick to respond to questions. As far as all-inclusive venues go, this one is the best value! Food is fantastic. Photograph opportunities are are far superior to other venues. If you are looking for a venue that is all-inclusive, beautiful,classy, easy and no hassle, The Whist is definitely for you!

  • Margaret and the University and Whist Club did a fantastic job with our wedding! We chose to use the University and Whist club only 3 months prior to the date of the wedding, and they did a great job pulling it off. Any little request we had they were able to accommodate and they really held our hands through the whole process. The venue was beautiful for a classic upscale wedding and they were by far the best value for the food, atmosphere and service! We highly recommend them.
