    Great staff, venue, and location

    We had our rehearsal dinner at The Refinery and they were fantastic! Joy was responsive, easy to work with, and super helpful along the way. The venue was a beautiful, modern setting in the best location for our guests right in Culpeper. Highly recommend.

    Best Venue Around

    There are not enough stars available to express how happy I was with my experience having my wedding at the Refinery. It is beautiful, so thoughtfully laid out and Joy and her staff create the most seamless day. As a coordinator myself, I was blown away at how well this venue is run. I have never worked a wedding at a venue that was so well run. Like a well oiled machine, my family, friends or I literally did not have to worry about a single aspect of my day and Joy made sure the planning up until my special day was smooth and detailed. I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone! Best venue ever!

    Only 5 stars?!?!

    The refinery is BEYOND a value. The venue, the service, the accommodations are all above and beyond what we expected. We shopped around to multiple venues. For a similar venue, we were looking at 2-3 times what we spent on the refinery. This is before mentioning the unparalleled service that Joy provided to us. If you are looking for a venue with rockstar service regardless of budget, The Refinery is your place.
