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:
VEIL
Brightly colored veils were worn in ancient times in many parts of the world and were considered a protection against evil spirits Greek and Roman brides for yellow or red veils (representing fire) to ward off evil spirits and demons. At one time, Roman brides were completely covered with a red veil for protection. In early European history, with the advent of arranged marriages veils served another purpose - to prevent the groom from seeing the brides' face till after the ceremony was over. Brides began to wear opaque yellow veils. Not only could the groom not see in, the bride could not see out! Therefore, the father of the bride had to escort her down the aisle and literally give the bride to the groom. Nellie Custis, the daughter of Martha Washington, is credited with wearing the first lace veil.
