Wonderful reception posted 9/2/2013

This venue was cost effective (paid $1600 I believe) and it was a beautiful space for our reception. Jean is very helpful in helping you plan the location for tables and everything else in the space.

Reception Venue posted 7/9/2013

Our wedding reception was held at Doolitte Hall in June 2013. From the beginning, Jean was extremely helpful! She was quick to respond to all of our questions or concerns. This venue has an awesome library/bar area in the back, and is big enough to accommodate a large party. There are also several great spots for pictures nearby on the grounds.

Great until the bar... posted 5/31/2014 (modified 6/13/2014)

It was a lovely experience getting everything ready for the wedding. I attest most of the lack of stress to my caterer, photographer, DJ, etc. but not to Doolittle. When going over the layout with my caterer, the lady we worked with from Doolittle had a lot of the wrong notes but that was no matter at all. The worst part was the fact that we had to use The Officers Club bar. We couldn't bring in any outside alcohol (we lived in Colorado and couldn't bring in any craft beer) and the bartenders they hired day of were TERRIBLE. They were rude to our guests, worked as slow as molasses and had terrible customer service. Thankfully I had a great bridesmaid team and didn't find any of this out until after the wedding.

My only advice would be to request your bartenders! Or the type you want.

Thank you for your feedback. Being as that we are a military installation, we are required to follow their policies and procedures as explained in the beginning stages of booking and planning. The base holds our liquor license and as such, all serv...

We were married at the Academy chapel and had our wedding reception at Doolittle Hall. The drive from the chapel to Doolittle Hall was very easy for our guests to navigate. We had a cocktail hour in the library and then transitioned into the main room for dinner and dancing. We had someone decorate the room that was recommended to us by Jean. The room was very romantic and dream-like with tulle and lights dangling from the atrium and on both staircases. All of our food, wine, and floral arrangements came from outside vendors and it was easy make arrangements with Jean for drop-off times. Doolittle Hall staff decorated the table with linens, candles, and flowers with my very specific directions. Jean was very accommodating and answered all of our questions and emails. Kimmee was our point of contact the day of our wedding. They are both very friendly and helpful. Our reception was everything that we had hoped.

The views are spectacular! The mountains are your backdrop while you look out to Colorado Springs.;The venue truely only holds 175 people downstairs comfortably. Any more than that and you cannot walk around.
