My husband and I just got married at Battleground Country Club on Friday, October 23,2015. It was everything we could have wished for and more. We booked this venue back in November 2013- a little less than two years before the big day. When I first walked into the ballroom, I fell in love and all I thought was...we will never be able to afford this place. When I sat down with Jean Castaldi, she went over two packages and discussed the prices. My jaw just about dropped to the floor. It was so reasonably priced- I couldn't believe it. We booked shortly after, and I'm so glad we did.
Jean was amazing throughout the whole planning process; I tortured her for those long 23 months! She was always quick to respond to all my questions and concerns and very accommodating. The weeks leading up the big day, she helped planned the rehearsal, and allowed me to store ALL my "DIY pinterest/ etsy purchases" in her office!!
She arranged for an attendant, "Captain Tony", to be there to assist us with anything we needed in the bridal suite that morning, whether it be coffee, juice, or champagne. Tony also made sure my husband and I got around the beautiful golf course for our pictures that afternoon. He was great!
Vinny, our maitre'd, was wonderful as well! He made sure everything went smoothly the whole day- from the ceremony to the reception. During cocktail hour, guests started handing me envelopes, and Vinny made sure to take them from me and place them into the envelope box in the reception hall! At the reception, Vinny and Tony were very attentive to the needs of my husband and I. He made sure we had drinks in our hands, and sat down to eat. If a drink fell on the dance floor, Vinny was there to make sure it was cleaned quickly. I could not have asked for a better day/night, or a better staff.
The food was amazing & the grounds were gorgeous! ALL of my guests raved about how delicious the food was and how beautiful the venue was!
We had our wedding here on 8/14/15 and it was so beautiful. From the start Lizette was so great in helping us plan our special day. To the day of, Victoria and Vinny were AMAZING.. simply amazing. The food is so delish here and the ballroom where we had our reception was breathtaking. We would do it all over again if we could. We love this place and would defiantly book here again for any other special occasions in the future.
Everything for our wedding came out beautiful. Jonette, our matre de, was absolutely amazing. From bustling my dress to making sure I had enough drinks and food, it was like she was reading my mind all night. Our guests raved about the food, everything was perfect. Only issue was the new General manager did not want to allow our guests to take shots, for our party it was allowed since he wasn't there when we booked. But I would caution people looking for a venue now to ask a lot of questions because it seems like this guy is making his own rules
This venue helped create my dream wedding. My husband and I were paying for a lot for our wedding ourselves so The Battleground was a little beyond our budget and we assumed we were just going to take a tour to get ideas fr other venues. Although, once we sat down with Liz we realized it would be worth every extra penny we could save, Also, they were very willing to let us customize our options to make the day affordable.
First of all the venue itself is beautiful, the reception room has it's own up-lighting, beautiful canopy of lights over the dance floor and custom colored table napkins. There was no need for us to purchase much of anything to decorate the beautiful room that overlooks the golfcourse.
Our ceremony took place outside with our alter being an adorable white gazeebo. The atmosphere was wonderful. There were also seasonal flowers around the ceremony space. They do have a separate inside room for ceremonies for different types of weather. We loved that we wouldn't have to use the reception area or cocktail area in case of rain.
The cocktail hour was impressive with its amount of food that was constantly going around and the different stations, We even had a Ramen noodle bar, it was a huge hit!! The room also provided many small tables so no one was uncomfortable and too eager to move on from cocktail hour.
The staff was ridiculously amazing, catering to pretty much any need anyone had. My guests still can not stop talking about them, from getting extra water to helping people with diatary needs to just being very polite. I literally had an employee follow me out the door with tea to go because I had mentioned it offhand earlier. With the combination of Liz and our maitre'd we really didn't have to think about anything. The bridal sweet AND grooms suits were stocked with drinks for us and the amount of beautiful places to take photos on the course are endless.
The venue is beautiful! The grounds, everything. It actually rained off and on the day of our wedding but our matre di was right on top of things and managed to still get us to have our ceremony outside in between the rain showers. (Her and her crew wiped down the seats several times for our guests before the ceremony began- and ran around the entire wedding making sure everything went smoothly). In addition, Jeanette (our matre di) worked beautifully with our DJ entertainment company (URE events- also amazing!). Highly recommend this venue especially if you have Jeanette as your matre di =)
In addition- Battleground has a beautiful veranda off of the ballroom- we added fire pits to this area and made s'mores at the end of night which was a total hit!
From the minute we walked into the BCC we knew it was our venue. Everything just fell in line from the decor, space, staff, location and the ability for one event at a time. During the months leading up to the wedding Jean was so great helping us and answering all of our questions, making sure the things that were important to us were written into the contract, etc. Our wedding day was the best day ever mostly due to our fabulous maitre d Johnette. She was so incredibly attentive to us and each of our families, she was on point and had such a happy personality where you could tell she just loves what she does. Johnette really went above and beyond for us and for that we will never forget. It was absolutely a day to remember and our guests had nothing but great things to say. We also chose to have our rehearsal at the BCC prior to the wedding. We decided to have a brunch rather than a dinner the week before the wedding and I have to say, it was a blessing in disguise. It was so nice not having to worry about having a rehearsal the night before the wedding with everything else going on. Our guests for the rehearsal absolutely loved not only the brunch idea but the food. We had a nice private room overlooking the golfcourse which was a beautiful setting combined with great food from french toast to bagels to carved turkey and a mimosa fountain. Everything was set up so nicely and spacious but yet felt very cozy for our small group. I would definitely recommend this venue to any bride interested in great service, great decor, one event at a time, and affordable. I look forward to having more events there in the future!
You only have one chance to make your wedding day perfect, and choosing Battleground Country Club is an excellent first step in making that perfect day a reality. The grounds for the ceremony were beautiful, the food was outstanding and all of the members of the venue's staff were professional, polite, helpful and responsive. We returned from our honeymoon over a week ago and are still hearing from friends and relatives about the wonderful time that they had at our wedding. The presentation of the food available during the cocktail hour was topped only by how delicious everything was (or so we are told by our guests, we were too excited and awestruck to be very hungry). Our Officiant had never performed a wedding ceremony before (he was a close friend) and we didn't do a formal rehearsal, so Liz and Johnette had their work cut out for them. Both of these ladies deserve a special thank you for making sure everything was such a success. Our Maitre d' (Johnette) was friendly, attentive and very fun to work with. Call us biased if you must, but we feel that Battleground Country Club is the perfect place for a wedding and We would strongly recommend this venue for your next special event. Fall graced us with the perfect weather for an evening wedding, our friends and families made the perfect guests to celebrate our special day, and Battleground County Club took care of the rest.
***Side note: one of our relatives ruined their tie prior to the ceremony and asked one of the wait/bar staff if there were any nearby stores where he could purchase one in time. After advising that there weren't any such stores close enough, the employee let this relative borrow his tie to wear to the ceremony. These are the types of people who make this such an easy venue to recommend***
Battleground did an amazing job with our wedding. Liz took care of everything for us and kept us on schedule throughout the entire process. The day of our wedding we did not worry about a thing. Everything was set up perfectly and everyone was there to help us. Liz was even the one who bustled my dress for me! Our friends and family couldn't stop raving about the food, especially the cocktail hour, which we had outside (beautiful!!!). Our Maître d Johnette was AMAZING. She was running around all night making sure my me and my husband had everything we needed. She was also extremely attentive to our bridal party and our parents. Everyone loved her. Can't say enough great things about Battleground and their outstanding staff.
They made it a day to remember. They were very easy to work with. People are raving about the food. They made us worry-free. Such a beautiful venue.
I can't say enough how pleased my husband and I were with choosing BCC to host our wedding day. We were able to have a beautiful ceremony outside at their gazebo which was perfectly landscaped and enhanced by the flowers from my florist. The food was outstanding, the staff was friendly, and most importantly, our guests had a great time! Liz was easy to work with and accommodated our many requests to modify the menu. On the day of our wedding, Johnette was amazing as our maitre'd. She was not only professional and kept our day moving smoothly, she was also fun and friendly. At the end of the night, she and one of her staff members graciously gave my husband, my Dad, the best man, and one of our groomsmen a ride to our hotel since the shuttle had left to bring the other guests back. It you want to have a wedding at a beautiful location and with excellent food, book your day at BCC!
Our entire wedding planning experience with Battleground was phenomenal. From the moment we took the tour to book, Jean was fantastic and I will never forget her and Liz for their professionalism, attentiveness, and always ensuring me that everything would go smoothly. Jean and Liz ensured every detail of our day was executed exactly how we envisioned. Our staff for the day of the wedding were phenomenal and could not be more accommodating. The room looked absolutely beautiful, the Viennese and cocktail hours were amazing, and out guests are still raving about the food. I am forever grateful to each of them for their hard work and truly caring that our evening was perfect. Thank you all!!!
I just want to thank Jean and the entire staff at Battleground!!! You guys made my perfect day amazingly beautiful!!! I couldn't have asked for a better venue or staff to work with!!! My guests are still calling and saying what an amazing time they had and how great the food was and it was one of the best weddings they have ever been too!!! Thanks again!!!
We were hoping to have our ceremony and cocktail hour outside for a May wedding. However, Mother Nature was not on our side and we ended up having everything inside. We were able to take pictures on the grounds before the wedding and we can't wait to see some of the shots with the beautiful greenery and flowers in the background.
Despite the weather, the entire event was a huge success. Having the ceremony and reception at one location made it very convenient for us and our guests. The bridal and groom suites were an added bonus and a great place to get ready. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and how nice and helpful the staff were. The cake from Normandie Bakery was mouthwateringly delicious.
All of the rooms were set up beautifully and the lighting in the ballroom was a wonderful addition to our romantic ambiance.
Last but not least, we thoroughly enjoyed working with Liz Zarko, who was patient and responsive throughout the entire planning process. She answered our millions of questions and met with us several times.
We also enjoyed having Johnette as our Maitre D on the day of, she brought a great energy and did a great job coordinating everything for us even with the last minute location change from outside to inside.
We would highly recommend you choose Battleground as your wedding venue or any event venue for that matter. Everyone was a joy to work with and the grounds and rooms were spacious and beautiful.
A beautiful and amazing place for an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. If you want a beautiful backgound and endless scenery, this is the place to be!
Staff was extremely helpful, accomidating, and professional. Loved them!! They were willing to help with budget and willing to work with you to get everything you wanted for your big day. Extremely knowledgable and always there for advice.
Food was OUTSTANDING and plenty of it! Super excited and extremely happy we picked the Battleground country club for our wedding!
We held our wedding and reception at the BattleGround Country Club. The staff was quite helpful and flexible. We loved their food, and the guests we invited to our wedding are still raving about the food to this day. Everything looks wonderful and the venue was ideal for us to hold both the ceremony at and the reception.
Very beautiful location, this really made our wedding special and we could not be more happy to recommend this country club.
I came to Battleground for their catering services and they did an amazing job of it, the food was great and their staff was so helpful.
