Looking for an Alumni Wedding? State College welcomes all Penn Staters for a very special wedding day.
The ultimate wedding reception venue for fans is Beaver Stadium. Three rooms in the stadium can be rented: Mt. Nittany Club holds up to 220 guests, the President’s Suite & Lounge holds up to 100 guests and the Recruit’s Lounge holds up to 150 guests.
Is the stadium out of your budget, but you still want a Stadium experience? Try a Rehearsal dinner in the Stadium’s Letterman’s Lounge which holds 72 guests and have a buffet on the built in hot lie for the football lettermen. This is an economical alternative with just as much impact.
You can’t have a wedding reception without having the ceremony first. There are a few locations to have your ceremony on Penn State’s campus. The Arboretum has three locations; the Overlook Pavilion, Joan Milius Smith Esplanade, and the North Terrace. Two ceremony locations are available at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center: in the All Faith Worship Hall or Eisenhower Chapel.
Apart even from the actual wedding events, there is much to do for you and your guests to get that “Penn State Flavor”. Start the day off with a tour of the All Sports Museum or a take a PSU campus tour with a Lion Ambassador.
You can also travel in Penn State Style. Top off the wedding day transportation with a ride on Penn State’s Molly Trolley or football’s Blue Buses.
The Penn State buses can deliver your wedding guests to the ceremony location and take a loop downtown for photographs. When stopping for photos remember your favorites: Old Main, Lion Shrine, Alumni House, Creamery, The Nittany Lion Inn, the HUB and the duck pond.
Want your reception to still show your Blue & White Pride even at another location? Many Penn Staters skip the Jordan almond favors and go for the framed note that in lieu of a wedding favor they have given a gift to Thon.
And then there’s the cake! You can order the groom a Penn State blue & white cake and share the memories. Don’t forget the Creamery Ice Cream!
If you’re a Sacks 5th shopper or a Thrifter; you can make your wedding a memorable Penn State Wedding.
