Formal Dinner in Chevron Auditorium

Formal dinner in Chevron Auditorium

Unlike most other Bay Area event venues, International House offers a unique and lovely setting for a more personalized special event. Our friendly staff is very flexible, customizing each event for your taste and budget. In addition, we can fulfill all your catering and audiovisual needs to simplify your planning. We can host both ceremony and reception on-site, from intimate gatherings to grand affairs with up to 240 guests.

Our event venues provide an elegant backdrop to your special day. The mission revival décor speaks for itself with hand-painted ceilings, hardwood and Spanish tile floors, chandeliers, antique furnishings, arched windows, and other charming architectural features, so that minimal decoration is needed.

I-House has a guest suite available to reserve for overnight stays. Many brides like to use the Ambassador Suite as a place to get ready with friends and family members.  We are also conveniently located within walking distance of a number of charming hotels to accommodate your guests.

Consider holding a ceremony on the Heller Patio, a buffet in the Slusser Room and reception in the Chevron Auditorium. The adjacent Hall of History is the perfect space to gather, stage a photo-booth or display wedding favors. These venues are also splendid locations for graduation receptions, retirement parties, holiday celebrations, and family or alumni reunions.

The rich history of International House and its international flair lends a distinctive ambiance to special events. Contact our events specialists to help you organize your exceptional event!
