What clients are saying about Virginia Cliffe Inn
June 12, 2017
At Virginia Cliffe Inn we pride ourselves on our customer service and the ability to meet our clients needs. Not only do you receive the southern hospitality and charm that is the Inn, but you also receive piece of mind that your event will be taken care of in a professional manner. Here is what a recent 2017 VCI bride had to say about her wedding:
“As soon as I arrived at the Virginia Cliffe Inn, I knew it would be the venue for us. As the venue event scheduler at the time showed us around, I was impressed with the beautiful semi-permanent tent structures, which meant we wouldn’t have to worry so much about renting a tent or bad weather. The part that really sold me, as cheesy as it may seem, was the pair of swans that live on the premises, aptly named Romeo and Juliet. Also, the rose garden and beautiful landscaping was so charming. The interior of the house was perfectly Southern Romantic, which turned out great for photos. The bride’s dressing room had a very comfy bed we all hung out on and a lovely stand up mirror. The groom’s room had dark rich wood and looked like a cigar room. We loved it. The price was right, so we booked it within the week without even looking at other venues.
They do have a preferred catering list, and we used Deep Run Roadhouse. Also, we had to acquire a Special Banquet license and liability insurance, which is to be expected.
For a Sunday wedding, the venue allowed us to have a Friday rehearsal and drop off our nonperishable (alcohol, centerpieces with flowers, and other decorations) in an indoor space. The venue’s onsite wedding attendant/event coordinator/mistress of ceremony/lady-of-awesomeness was named Mary Lee. I cannot even begin to describe how sweet, wonderful, and hardworking this woman is. From the moment we arrived on Friday evening all the way through to the end of our wedding reception, she was on top of it! Rain was in the forecast, and we were thinking we would need to move the ceremony to the back of the house under a tent. Instead, she and her team waited until the last moment to make the call, and it turned out not to rain and we were able to have the ceremony where we had planned in the front!! Also, she kept making sure during the wedding that the groom and I had enough to eat and always had something to drink.
Overall, this was the most wonderful experience of my life. The vendors all got along very well and were extremely coordinated. Everyone knowing their jobs so well really made the planning process very painless. I cannot recommend this beautiful venue enough for your wedding day!”
