James River Country Club is in Newport News, Virginia along the banks of the historic James River. Opening in 1932, James River Country Club has been a longstanding golf club and event venue that has provided a wonderful experience for its guests.
This Newport News wedding venue has so much to offer. Brides can get ready in their newest addition, the Bridal Suite. The Bridal Suite has three vanity stations, which is the perfect area for your hair and makeup artist to work with you and your bride tribe. It has space to relax as you get ready and room service provided by their professional food and beverage staff. It has an exterior door that opens to the riverfront as well.
Since the country club overlooks the James River, you and your fiancé can exchange your vows on the beach or on the green space. You can also opt to have your ceremony indoors. The ball room is a spacious location for your reception. Adjacent to the ball room is a space where your guests can enjoy cocktail hour indoors, and another space with lots of windows so you and your guests will have a view of the river as you enjoy your meal prepared by the culinary team.
One thing we really love about James River Country Club is the variety of places for your couple’s portraits. The stone bridge, which sits over a small creek, is picturesque. There are green spaces with views of beautiful trees. The riverfront is also a beautiful location for portraits, especially at sunset.
If you are a bride who enjoys excellent service, riverfront views, lots of gorgeous options for portraits, and a spacious reception space, James River Country Club is for you.
