Piedmont Club is a private golf club in Haymarket, Virginia. Although we are a private club, you do not have to be a Member to host an event with us. Our ballroom can accommodate up to 180 people and has a spacious patio adjacent to it. We also have our library, which is a great space for smaller events for up to 40 people, such as rehearsal dinners or bridal showers. We only host one wedding per day so that when you rent our ballroom you have total access to the entire venue whenever you would like that day. We have menus for every occasion but also enjoy customizing packages to suit our client's specific preferences and needs for their event.
What do you enjoy most when working with a bridal couple?
I enjoy getting to know the couple and finding out what things are most important to them so that I can help them put a personal touch on their big day. I love seeing the looks on their faces when they see the ballroom and all of their ideas come to life for the first time.
From where do you draw your inspiration?
I think that each couple has something that makes them unique and that makes their relationship special, so finding out what is important to them and what they enjoy helps me to suggest creative ideas to personalize their wedding.
What advice do you have for brides and grooms who are in the throes of planning their wedding?
Ask all of the questions that you need to and don't be shy when it comes to letting your vendors know how you want things for your big day. It is your wedding and your vendors should always be focused on helping you make your vision become a reality.
