Many times with a job, we can all fall into a place where we get numb, and jaded. Sick of the benign, day to day. We've all felt it. Never once did I, nor my Fiance/Wife ever get the slightest notion of said drudgery from Melodi...
As professional as she was, she was also very engaging, with an absolute sincerity that was refreshing for the both of us, (as you know, it can be a very taxing time) without the pressure of "business" that we had experienced at other locations.
With our minds, and hearts sold, we decided to look at the venue itself. The two of us had previously attended a handful of engagements there, and knew it would not disappoint.
What this woman, and Staff can do is nothing short of Elegant, and Amazing... Everything we could have possibly hoped, asked, and dreamed for was met, with taste, and accommodation, that will presumably go unrivaled for a long time.
Am I happy with the way the greatest night of my life had unfolded? Absolutely...
Am I happy with the Top Notch Service, Attention, and overall Attentiveness to what we had Dreamed? No Question...
I only have so many thumbs, so I'll give it Two...
However, Melodi, and the Entire Staff at Valley Country Club made the greatest day of our lives that much more special

My husband and I got married at Valley Country Club early September and our wedding was amazing!! Melodi and her entire staff were wonderful! The venue looked better than what I expected and the food was to die for. The service, quality, and attention was phenomenal. We were so happy that everything turned out exactly how we wanted it to turn out. This place was simply amazing and I would recommended it to anyone who is getting married. Valley Country Club is the place to get married, have fun, and enjoy your day!

It's been two weeks since our wedding, and my husband and I are still amazed at how wonderful our wedding ceremony and reception was at Valley Country Club. We got married on 9/7/13, and we couldn't have asked for a better day!
Melodi, the event manager at the club, was great right from the get-go. She showed us the facility, answered all of our questions, and there was never any pressure to choose. The ground are beautiful, and since we were having the ceremony there as well, it was a no-brainer that this would be the perfect place for our wedding.
Throughout the year, Melodi answered any questions that might have popped up, and was always prompt as the date got closer in helping me with any last minute changes or questions I had.
The day of the wedding... simply gorgeous. I think my jaw dropped when I peeked in and saw how they had arranged everything... the entire team at Valley Country Club were professional, friendly, and so accommodating. Steve was in charge of helping the bridal party and can I just say? AWESOME. If you needed anything? Steve got it for you. Keep the groomsmen from getting rowdy? Steve did it. Need your car loaded? I'm pretty sure Steve even did that too. WITH A SMILE. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it was to have Steve there for everything we needed throughout the day.
And the food? To die for. People are still calling us to tell us how great it was. We had a three course seated meal, but no matter how you slice it, the food there is delicious, and not your run of the mill wedding factory food. I actually took mine home and ate the leftovers the day before we left for our honeymoon! :)
Overall, Melodi and the rest of the staff at Valley Country Club did a fantastic job with our wedding. I didn't have to worry about anything when it came to this vendor, and if we had to do it over, I would have my wedding there again in a heartbeat.

We decided to look at Valley because my uncle is a member and we have attended several wonderful events there. Prior to our visit with Melodi we toured one other country club and planned to visit a few additional venues but we both fell in love with Valley so we cancelled our other appointments. We even changed our targeted wedding date, which we had already reserved with our church!
Our cocktail hour was on the outdoor decks overlooking Valley's picturesque golf course. We took all of our photos at Valley and were able to see our guests during the cocktail hour. The staff was very attentive to our Wedding Party throughout the night but especially with regards to serving drinks and appetizers while we were taking pictures.
Throughout the night, the staff was beyond amazing. Our needs were attended to immediately - at times it was as if they anticipated our needs. For dinner we had chicken francaise and roast sirloin, both were delicious. We were hesitant about serving the sirloin as it can sometimes come over, or under, cooked and dry. During our tasting, we were able to speak directly to the chef who promised us that the sirloin served at our reception would be a top cut and cooked to perfection - he kept his promise and delivered a perfect meal!
I honestly cannot say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with Melodi and the staff at Valley. Melodi was quick to respond to my costant emails during our year of planning and provided great advice that helped make our special day even better. I was able to relax and enjoy not only our Wedding but the days leading up to it because I trusted Melodi and knew our reception would be perfect. We had such a wonderful day and both wish we could do it over and over again!

Mike and I chose Valley Country Club based on a recommendation from a friend. Right from the first meeting with Melodi we were 100 % sure to have our wedding there. The grounds are absolutely beautiful overlooking the golf course and we had our wedding on labor day the perfect time for such a beautiful venue.
We had an outside service and it was a great place for pictures afterwards. The staff, Hannah, and Melodi were AMAZING in how everything was handled and we had no worries before hand or during due to their professionalism and communication in it all. The Food was FABULOUS!! Everyone loved the meals.
When we walked into the venue all set up in our wedding colors it was truly more than we ever could have expected. The hard work and dedication of the entire place was demonstrated to us throughout the night allowing us to enjoy our moment , our setting, and our family and friends. We highly recommend VCC and couldnt have ended up at a more amazing venue and with such an AMAZING staff. LOVE LOVE LOVE !!!

My husband and I knew we found our reception venue following our first meeting with the Club Manager, Melodi. The building, the grounds, the photo opps, the covered deck, menu selections, large accommodating ballroom, oversized dance floor, the bar located IN the reception room, etc, etc. Our search was over right then and there!
Once we decided on Valley and started spreading the word to family and friends, we received nothing but reassurance about how fantastic the food is there. During the reception, our guests were raving about their meals! Seriously, RAVING. We are still hearing compliments about the food 4 months later! That goes for the dessert station too! We opted for a dessert buffet in addition to a small, personal wedding cake. The table of decadent desserts spread from one end of the room to the other. Talk about impressive! The desserts were tiered, the linins were under-light with delicate lights, and decorated with fabric flowers I brought in for use at her discretion. Oh it was beautiful. The guests LOVED IT! Valley had their own dessert suggestions for the buffet which were great. We added our own special requests too! We got to take home what was left :)
I will never forget what that ballroom looked like when Melodi first showed us on our big day. She showed me all of the little details that she was so meticulous about. From the angle of the runners, to the layout of the reception table, to the level of light in the room. She wanted our full approval before anyone was let into the room. The care that she took in getting things just right was so pleasing. I knew we were in good hands going into it, but of course, every bride gets some jitters as the day approaches. After our final meting days before the wedding, I knew I had absolutely nothing to worry about in regards to the reception. She was on top of everything. A weight taken right off my shoulders! I can't say enough about her!
When we arrived, the guests were all enjoying passed hors 'devours and picking from the fruit, cheese & cracker display while sipping cocktails on the oversized covered deck. It was a perfect spot for guests to linger as they awaited their entrance into the ballroom.
After dinner, we had some time to get some awesome photos on and under the stone bridge. Valley has so many great spots for pictures. I just wish I had time to use them all! One other thing I loved about Valley was that the bar was in the ballroom situated adjacent from the dance floor. No one had to separate from the celebration to get a drink.
Working with Melodi was the best part of my wedding planning experience. She made herself available to answer my many questions at all times of the day, even after hours. She really knows what she is doing. It was relieving working with someone with her caliber of experience. She was dedicated to ensuring every last detail was taken care of. On the day of the wedding, we were greeted with a great big enthusiastic smile and hug. She was truly happy for us and so excited about what she had in store for us.
I must add that the bridal attendant, Hannah, was clutch! If I needed something, I needed only to look up and she was always near by. Definitely a great bonus to have someone designated to us alone, as well as having a private bridal room and restroom!
I highly recommend this "total package" venue to anyone!!

Our wedding at Valley Country Club was absolutely perfect. My husband and I had looked at a few different country clubs while in the planning process and were starting to consider alternative options because we could not find what we wanted. When we left Valley, we knew it was the place for us.
They had the BEST outdoor ceremony option we had seen ... in the back of the building, overlooking the golf course. The indoor backup plan (which, thankfully we didn't need) was also the best around!
The cocktail hour option with the 2 decks also overlooking the golf course was beautiful and our guests absolutely loved it. The guests were able to watch us while we got some of our professional pictures done. We were also able to take an escorted golf cart further onto the grounds to get some shots of just the 2 of us ... it was perfect!! Throughout the day you don't get to spend time with just your husband and getting a chance to do that was really special :)
My husband and I had said during the planning process that food was important to keeping guests happy ... our guests left VERY happy!! From the cocktail hour to the meal, we have gotten nothing but raving compliments about how delicious the food was. The portions of chicken and fish were huge and they allowed guests to take the meal home in doggie bags ... a great add on! While doing pictures, they brought us some apps which was really nice! During our tasting, the chef came out and talked to us ... a nice gesture. The food was hands down, amazing!! I know our friends will be talking about it for a long time to come!
I can't say enough about Melodi. During the planning process she was quick to answer questions and was very accommodating when scheduling appointments which was important because my husband and I have very different work schedules. She was extremely professional throughout the process and I could not have asked for anything more. She was honest and really worked with us to make our day as special as possible. Chef Terry, Nathan, Hannah ... all workers we encountered throughout the process were amazing!
The service, the price, the space (the room is gorgeous and the dance floor is huge!) ... there is not one thing we can find to complain about. Valley is a hidden gem and we strongly recommend you make an appointment to meet with Melodi and take a tour. You won't be sorry :)

You do not realize just how much your wedding day means to you and how much work really goes into a wedding until the day. I could not have asked for a better coordinator, venue, food, or service possible. My wedding was about 140 people. We rented the ballroom and deck. There was plenty of room. Every single person has complimented me saying the food was incredible. We choose a prime rib buffet. You take a risk doing a buffet style at a wedding because the food could be cold, over cooked, or not enough. But there was not a single problem. Everything ran smooth between walking down the isle, our introduction, our dances, and so much more. There was not a single problem we encountered throughout the entire ceremony and reception. If I could have my wedding all over again, I'd only change my nerves and have tried to relax a bit more. Could not have been happier! I would recommend this place to everyone for anytime of the year!

My wife and I were married August 25th at Valley Country Club in Warwick, RI. The first place I'd like to start with is how much we enjoyed working with Melodi. Her suggestions, willingness to adapt, listening to us and overall responsiveness is what ultimately was the deciding factor in our decision to have our wedding at Valley CC. During our ceremony her and her staff (particularly David and Hannah) were amazing! They did not leave our sides and when the ceremony was approaching they were voices of calm during those nervous/anxious moments. They were all extremely competent and true professionals. Can't say enough here about Melodi and her staff.
We had our ceremony outside and the scene was breathtaking. Overlooking the beautiful greens of Valley CC, the colors and crispness of the landscaping complimented perfectly with our flowers and colors and made the scenery for our ceremony very beautiful. Friends and family could not compliment us enough on how beautiful of a ceremony they had witnessed. Our cousins played two songs which Melodi and her staff helped coordinate the set up for their equipment and choosing an ideal location for them to play. We are so pleased with our wedding ceremony held at Valley.
There's a large covered deck that spans the length of the hall where we had our cocktail hour following the ceremony while we were taking pictures. Which there are many locations at Valley for some really nice pictures including their stone arched bridge. But our guests were well taken care of during this time with great appetizers and drinks.
The reception went just as flawlessly as the ceremony. Valley CC coordinated with outside vendors (photobooth, flowers, sashes and covers for chairs, photographer) and when we saw the hall completed it was extravagant. We really liked that the bar was centered to the room so there was no "split" during the reception when our guests wanted a drink - in other words everyone was in the same room and stayed there. Though our guests had access to the deck at anytime during the night if they chose to get some fresh air.
One thing our guests constantly pointed out to us was the food. We did not do a tasting prior so we put our faith in Valley CC and not only did they not disappoint, they far exceeded our expectations. The pasta bar was incredible and the prime rib was cooked perfectly. Melodi helped us arrange stations which helped in staying close to our budget but also allowed our guests to have options for their meal. Even the salads were a step above the rest.
They have a huge dance floor which was a lot of fun and the dance floor is in a great location in the hall. And maintained really well!
If my wife and I had the opportunity to do this day and night all over again we would in a second. Everything came out better than we could have hoped for and within a manageable budget for us. Which was very important! To this day we have family and friends telling us how much they enjoyed our wedding....some going to the length to say it was the best wedding they have attended. And they mean it!
We would highly recommend Valley CC to anyone looking for a venue to have their ceremony and/or reception. Working with Melodi and Valley CC we were able to accomplish exactly what we wanted for our wedding. And couldn't be happier.

Our wedding at Valley Country Club was beyond perfect! It was more than we ever plan it would be from the lights,the decors and especially the food. It was delicious,Our guess that attended our wedding continues to compliment us how elegant and beautiful VCc is and how excellent the food and on the services where. Melodi the club coordinator was beyond awesome, she was excellent. She truly,truly listen to what we had to say,how we want our day to be. She just went the extra mile to make our evening run smoothly and special. The bridal attendant Dave was great! He kept the bridal party calm and relax before we where introduce and throughout the night he made sure we were having a good time and making sure we did not need anything else. If you want to have an elegant,modern, + a professional event the staff at the VCC will make it happen beyond your expectation.
Once again Melodi thank you so much for being very professional and a good listener you have made our night special and memorable. To the chef and rest of the staff thank you for just being awesome. You guys are the best continue to keep up the good works. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Our wedding at Valley Country Club was perfect! I am still hearing from our guests about how much fun they had, how delicious the food was and how "cool" the candy buffet was ~ that Melodi did a fabulous job setting up! Melodi was an awesome person to work with and made me feel very comfortable thoughout the entire planning process - she is very responsive, has great ideas and totally went above and beyond what I expected!! The entire staff at Valley was very accomodating and professional. Valley has amazing and unique places to take pictures from the golf course to the stone bride which was very important to me. I also liked the fact that we were the only wedding on the premises. I give Valley 5 stars across the board and will recommend Valley to anyone looking to host an event at a beautiful location with GREAT food, reasonable prices and most importantly an amazing event specialst!! Thanks Melodi and all the Staff at Valley Country Club for making my wedding day a dream come true!

My experience at the Vally Country Club was great. Melodi, the coordinator at the club, is awesome. She is willing to work with you. The club is cultural friendly. Any bride that wants to incorporate some of their cultural practices into their wedding, this is the place to book. Also, the food is great. LOVE THE CHEF!!! The servers on my wedding day was awesome. All I can say is all my guest LOVED their server. I am glad I chose this place for my wedding day. FYI, all the vendors that I worked with even knew how great this place was, especially Melodi.

I was recently married at the Valley Country Club in Warwick, RI. I have been to a lot of weddings as my husband and I are at "that age". I must say that te VCC truly has it down when it comes to event planning, prep, and execution. The club manager Melodi is truly among the best in the business. When looking for places she truly painted the picture and set this country club apart from all of the rest. The grounds of this club are kept fantastic and absolutely gorgeous for taking pictures. The food is something to rave about as well. We loved it when we went for our tasting but my husband was skeptical about how good it would be when it needed to be mass produced on our wedding day. Well it was delicious. Everything was executed exactly as we wished. Also, for all those skeptical that it may be expensive well, it is very reasonable and Melodi will work with you to fit your budget ! It was truly an amazing place for a weddIng and we would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about it.

Our wedding at Valley Country Club was fabulous! We received so many compliments from our guests about how wonderful the food was, how beautiful the venue was, how much they loved the outside deck space that we used for cocktail hour, and how impressed they were with the staff (and the list goes on!)
During the entire process, I had no doubt that everything would go smoothly at the reception with Melodi in charge. She is truly a professional in every sense of the word- she even replied to any questions I had on her days off! She has so many incredible ideas and resources. The room looked beautiful on our wedding day, and she personally brought my husband and me out on the golf course for some photo opportunities, which also provided us with a few moments of quiet on our busy wedding day!
My husband and I met while working at a different country club, and we both would admit to having pretty high standards for service after working for many years in the industry. We were truly impressed by the entire staff there- they were all extremely friendly and helpful, and the service was great. At the end of the night, without needing to be asked, they packed up what was left of our candy buffet into containers, and neatly boxed up everything we brought with us. Chef Terry accommodated special meal requests, and the guests were so impressed by the Tuscan Antipasto display that was stationed on the deck during cocktail hour. Everyone enjoyed the food, and our meals were delicious.
I was also happy to have the bridal room and separate bathroom that was located 1 floor up from the ballroom. It was a great place to safely store our things, quiet and out of the way from foot traffic, and the large private restroom was much appreciated while wearing such a bulky dress! :)
Everything was amazing, and I am so happy with our decision to choose Valley C.C. for our wedding!
An antique setting with contemporary flair...
Enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the upper deck overlooking spectacular views of our golf course and historical stone bridge.Then feast on the finest cuisine in our elegantly crafted ballroom. The Valley team of specialists are masters in the art of producing weddings and events.
