Fauquier Springs Country Club :-
Once the site of a Virginia Spa resort in the early 1800's, Fauquier Springs Country Club has had a long and colorful place in Virginia history. Nestled on the banks of the Rappahannock River in Warrenton, Virginia, the club boasts inspiring mountain views and a most elegant 30,000 square foot private clubhouse rebuilt in December 1991.

Fauquier Springs Country Club was founded in 1957 and occupies the site of the famous historic Fauquier White Sulphur Springs Resort dating back to pre-Civil War days. The Gazebo, built at the site of the original springs, displays craftsmanship of the mid-nineteenth century and allows a wonderful backdrop for picture taking.


Wedding Trivia:
SOMETHING "OLD", "NEW", "BORROWED", AND "BLUE"
The tradition of carrying one or more items that are "old", "new", "borrowed" and "blue" also comes from English. There is an old English rhyme describing the practice which also mentions a sixpence in the brides shoe. Something old, signifying continuity, could be a piece of lace, jewelry, or a grandmother's handkerchief. Something new, signifying optimism in the future, could be an article of clothing or the wedding rings. Something borrowed, signifying future happiness, could be handkerchief from a happily married relative or friend. Something blue, signifying modesty, fidelity and love, comes from early Jewish history. In early Biblical times, blue not white symbolized purity. Both the bride and groom usually wore a band of blue material around the bottom of their wedding attire, hence the tradition of "something blue". Originally the sixpence was presented to the bride by her future husband as a token of his love. Today, very often, it is the bride's father who places a coin in the brides shoe prior to leaving home for the church.
