Recent Wedding/Golf Testimonials

Thank you Shenandoah Valley Golf;

      Thank you so very much for a memorable experience on your course today.  Tired of the Coronavirus lockdown, I brought my young 9 year old son out for his very first round of golf.   We were paired with your member, Andre.   It was a perfect pairing.  Andre was patient and understanding.   Choosing to provide a 9 year old with an opportunity to play real golf is a difficult decision.   The boy enjoys and truly appreciates the game.   We thoroughly enjoyed the round.  It was a perfect day, perfect weather; your staff is outstanding and, again, Andre was just impressively respectful and helpful... his approach went a long way to teaching my son how enjoyable the game can be.

     Thank you all so very much for providing us with such an enjoyable experience.
 Regards,
 Tony

All I could have asked for! 

"My experience with Janet and her team was such a wonderful one! I had a vision for my wedding and they saw to it that it was done. The day of my wedding went without any hiccups. The food was great as well!! All of my guests commented on how nice they were and what a good time they had! I'm so grateful!!"

Stress-free 

"I was looking for a venue that would be beautiful and stress-free. SVGC was the perfect location. Janet and her staff are experienced without being pushy, and the facilities are absolutely perfect for a wedding. The dance floor is a permanent part of the architecture, the seating is far enough removed from the dancing that guests can still have conversations, the coat closet was the perfect spot for the photo booth and the restrooms are well-maintained. This venue has plenty of space for everything. I have nothing but positive feelings about our daughter's wedding and would book this venue in the future."

The most amazing day!!

"We were totally impressed with the attention and professionalism that was shown to us by the staff at Shenandoah. From the beginning planning stages, food tasting (which was phenomenal) to the final day, the staff was willing to work with us and accommodate us. Specific praises to Janet Maucione, who was the calm in our storm. She kept us on track and made sure that all our questions and needs where taken care of. Her words to me, as the mother of the bride were "breath". She went out of her way to make our day super special and we will be forever grateful."

Could Not Be Happier!

"We cannot say enough nice things about Janet, Chef Dan and the rest of the team at SVGC. They made everything so easy! Janet is such a considerate person, even with our last-minute scrambling, she was always responsive and helped us think through every aspect of our day.

Plus, THE FOOD! Oh man. So many people told us how much they loved the food. Definitely try the mac n cheese during your tasting! Once you do you will not be able to resist - and your guests will love you for it :)

The view out the back is beautiful, there are ample facilities for your wedding party to prepare, and restrooms for your guests to use at the reception. We live in the DC area, so SVGC was a little out of the way for us, but we are so happy we chose this venue for our wedding. So many of our married friends come away with minor quibbles about things they wish had gone different - but Janet and the team were so on top of things, we cannot imagine being any happier. Thanks again!"

Amazing Venue & Staff

"We loved every second of our wedding, and that was largely due to the staff and service at Shenandoah Valley. Janet and Rhonda were so amazing to work with, and were so responsive throughout the entire planning process. We even changed up their usual floor plan to bring in a second stage and dance floor, and they were so flexible and accommodating to our vision. We had our ceremony outdoors, which was such a beautiful location, and it was so convenient having the Fairview House for all of us to get ready in (ladies upstairs, men downstairs!). Food was delicious, staff were kind and professional, and Janet worked so wonderfully with all of our other vendors. If we could do it all over again, we would choose Shenandoah Valley every single time."

Incredible space, attentive staff, amazing food!

Everything from beginning to end was so easy and simple with SVGC. Janet readily answered all of my questions, and offered suggestions when I needed them. The day of the event was flawless! The staff was so attentive and helpful. My guests to this day are still raving about how delicious the food was and how beautiful the space was! SVGC made my wedding easy, elegant, and stress-free!

"We chose Shenandoah Valley Golf Club because of my husbands love for golf and because him and his father were members there. After meeting with Janet, we were for sure that the venue was perfect for us. They have a great selection of food and beverage packages for the reception and the location they have for a wedding ceremony is amazing! I loved being able to have an outside wedding and not have to walk in grass! Janet and Ashley were very helpful and thorough throughout the entire process. The entire venue is beautiful but not overly priced in my opinion, which makes it perfect for those who may have a smaller budget. Highly recommended!"

"I cannot say enough good things about the staff at SVGC! We got married on 9/16/17 and the wedding was better than anything I could have ever imagined. We booked the venue a year in advance and Janet was extremely helpful in that entire time leading up to our wedding; answering my questions in a timely manner, providing suggestions based off of her experiences with so many other weddings, and she was just so accommodating and friendly. She was an absolute joy to work with! The execution the day of the wedding was flawless! My guests continually rave about how everything went off without a hitch. The staff made sure that we stuck to our timeline and they were all was so professional and friendly. And the food! I still have guests reaching out to me to tell me that the crab cakes were the best they have ever had. All crab and no filler! Everything was delicious!

What I love most about using SVGC as our venue is that it was truly a one-stop shop and made wedding planning so much easier. They have both a ceremony and reception site, they take care of the catering (food and alcohol), they already have the tables, chairs, plates, linens, etc. so you may not have to rent anything, it’s a picture perfect location nestled in the valley with mountains in the background, and not to mention the Fairview House was the perfect place for the bridal party to get ready the day of the wedding. We rented the house for the weekend and my groom and his groomsmen all spent the night there the night before the wedding and then the day of the wedding, they stayed downstairs and me and my bridesmaids stayed upstairs and got dressed. Not to mention that after the wedding, my parents even stayed at the house. It was so convenient!

So if you’re looking for your wedding venue, look no further! It’s everything you could ever want and more!"

“A fairy tale wedding!” That’s how we describe Maria and Mark’s wedding reception at Shenandoah Valley Golf Club. Every detail about the affair was exquisite! The reception and banquet room, normally so elegantly appointed, was enhanced by your glittering Christmas decorations, which you so generously permitted us to use, creating an absolutely enchanted evening!


Although we had arrived later with the wedding party, many guests expressed to us that the passed hot hors d’oeuvres were delicious. On a cold and rainy wintry night what better way to be greeted than with the beauty of sparkling lights, a crackling fire in the fireplace, the aroma of hot mulled cider and delicious hot hors d’oeuvres … those as you well know, were a very, very special blessing for us. Thank you so much.


One might expect a meal served to over 250 people to be typically “hotel food.” However, the dinner that Executive chef  prepared was thoroughly delicious, pleasing to both the palate and the eye. Many of our guests commented on how delicious their meal, whether they had received the chicken or the salmon. Thank you, also, for allowing us to serve our mother’s homemade rosettes. She is 81 and Maria is her first grandchild. What a true joy it was for her to be able to contribute in this way.


To top of the already spectacular evening, Shenandoah Valley Golf club’s huge and beautiful hardwood dance floor was perfect for our Lebanese and the English Country dancing we had planned. What a festive and joyful time! Indeed, many guests were disappointed that the dancing didn’t continue after the happy couple departed.


As a side note, you may have noticed amongst the many military uniforms, one extremely tall (6’9” to be exact) young Marine, Brandon Johnson, a dear family friend. Brandon’s commanding officer permitted him to leave his base in South Carolina that day at noon. Another friend drove from Virginia Beach to S.C. to pick him up and then they drove straight to Front Royal in time to attend the reception. Brandon’s mother conveyed how grateful he was to be able to attend the celebration of Maria and Mark’s wedding, and to dance in his dress blues just eight days before was transported to Iraq. We were so pleased that he was able to share the beauty of that night and our prayers are with Brandon as he is now serving Fallujah.


We cannot express our thanks enough for all you did to make Mark and Maria’s wedding reception so beautiful and memorable! Starting with your expert planning, the enchanting atmosphere, the professional staff and the delicious food, the hallmark o excellence was demonstrated in ever aspect.


With heartfelt appreciation and gratitude,

Donald and Elisabeth Hoffman
