There’s also accommodations for rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and anniversary parties.
The Trellis. An outdoor ceremony site, the Trellis is surrounded by mature trees, sculpted gardens, a quiet pond and the manicured golf course. Featuring a wood-beamed trellis within a circular, red-bricked cobblestone plaza, guests watch the ceremony while seated in white lawn chairs.
The Gazebo. Tiered gardens and cascading waterfalls stand as the backdrop to this intimate site. Here at this intimate wedding ceremony location, couples say "I do" upon a small cobblestone dais, encircled by flowers, hedges and stately trees.
The Legacy Ballroom. The largest ballroom offered at the country club, this space features floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the landscaped grounds. Couples who choose this ballroom may also choose between having their ceremony either at the Trellis or the Gazebo. The newly-married couple enters the ballroom by descending down an ornate staircase to greet their guests.
The Brookside Stateroom. After completing a ceremony at the Gazebo, couples can celebrate their union with a reception in this majestic space featuring a grand staircase entrance and a private deck guests will enjoy throughout the cocktail hour and reception.
Farview Stateroom. This elegant space looks out over the course and the woodlands beyond. Couples who wed at the Trellis may celebrate in this room once their ceremony is complete. A private patio will be enjoyed by all as the evening moves on and the couple will toast to guests from their private Bridal salon balcony.
Tuscany Ballroom. Another reception option for couples tying the knot at the Trellis, this elegant room has a wall of windows that offers panoramic views of an outdoor patio, which guests have access to during the event. Additionally, the room’s lobby is also available to guests celebrating here, giving them another place to settle down for a little post-ceremony relaxation.
Signature Room. This intimate space is a choice spot for smaller weddings or for events such as a rehearsal dinner, brunch or bridal shower. The focal points of this comfortable room are the fieldstone fireplace and its large windows.

We have had the most amazing experience at Atkinson! It was the first and ONLY place we looked at! We first toured with Jennifer and she explained every aspect of the wedding. She answered any and all questions we came with and was super personable and sweet. We loved the venue right away, bith the indoor and the outdoors spaces are gorgeous! We decided to book it at the end of the tour. Jennifer was in contact with us before every major deadline, everything wad explained super clearly and planning was made easy. I probably emailed Jennifer 1,000 times! They are unbelievably organized and all the paperwork was clearly labeled and very helpful. Throughout the year between booking and our wedding, we came to Atkinson several times to check if our centerpieces would look good and show loved ones the venue we fell in love with. Each time, whether We met with Jennifer or not, the staff was very accommodating and kind. We had our drop appointment the week of the wedding and it was a relief to be able to drop off everything (all decorations, guest book, place cards, etc.) and to only worry about ourselves the day of the wedding. Our day-of coordinator was Kristen and she was AMAZING! She somehow gathered our crazy large family and everything ran perfectly smoothly. She even held my drink while we took post-ceremony pictures! Overall Atkinson Resort and Country Club is amazing- it is the most beautiful venue for any wedding and their staff made everything easy!!!
If you are looking for more than just a space to have a wedding and want to feel a connection with the staff you work with, Atkinson is your place! Atkinson took my breath away the first time I visited and the staff didn't do anything less when I met them! Jennifer is so friendly, but what really stood out for my dad and I was how open and honest she was. She doesn't lie to try and get you to book at her venue. She tells it like it is and makes sure that your needs are met and that you are comfortable and happy with what you are getting. She allowed some special food requests for my guests and made me feel very welcomed to ask her questions whenever I wanted. She even replied one night late at night just to reassure me with what was going on! I quickly felt like she was more of a friend than just a staff member I was working with. When it came around to my wedding weekend, the staff for my rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and wedding were all amazing! They made sure everyone was set to go and happy and really took the time to get to know me and the wedding party. Kristen kept everything in order and made sure the timeline of events stuck to schedule, which was a big help and stress relief knowing someone else was keeping track of where everyone was haha. I have nothing negative to say about Atkinson or my experience with planning my wedding there. --Diane Wittman
We had our wedding here on Sept 16th and it was absolutely beautiful. Not only is the place amazing with their landscape and yummy good, the wedding coordinators you get to work with along the way are so helpful and accommodating. I couldn’t have asked for a better planning experience. I know so many people who have shared horror stories with their wedding coordinators but Jen and Julie were the absolute best to work with and my father can attest to that as well. The whole experience was so smooth all because of them. Make sure to check them out for any event you may have, you will not regret it!! :) thank you Atkinson CC for the most perfect day we will never forget.
We had our wedding here in October and it was beyond perfect. From the first time I spoke to Jennifer up to our day, she very helpful and willing to answer any and all my questions. Her and Tina went above and beyond. They were very accommodating when my dad got sick and Jennifer even came up with a way for him to still walk me down the aisle. The waitstaff was very professional and friendly. The food was amazing and always is when we eat there. The grounds are well kept and made for awesome pictures. Tina was very attentive during the ceremony and reception making sure everything was perfect. I couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate our wedding. Thank you so much!
Got married here in October and everything was perfect!! Tina was my wedding coordinator for the day and she made sure everything went smoth and was always checking on me all thru the night. All my guests loved the food, we had the option of maple bourbon chicken and bistro sirloin. I recommend this venue to anyone that I know that is recently engaged.
All of the staff at Atkinson was wonderful! We planned the wedding from afar and they couldn't have been more accommodating. The perfect October weather and gorgeous landscape at Atkinson made the day.
I could not have asked for a better location or team of people. Thank you for making my day magical!
We can't say enough good things about our reception at Atkinson! The venue is GORGEOUS and with a Sunday wedding, we had the whole place for our guests! Jennifer was so helpful with every planning detail and reaching out to all our vendors to make everything go smoothly! The food was so incredible- all our guests raved about how delicious their meals were and the staff was so attentive! And we can't get enough of how our pictures turned out from our gorgeous outdoor cocktail hour.
Working with the Atkinson CC was such a pleasant experience and we would highly recommend them! Everything was wonderful from the food, the accommodations to their friendly staff. From the moment we toured with Jennifer, their wedding coordinator, we knew this was our perfect venue. Jennifer was absolutely amazing, very responsive, kind and professional! I don’t know how she keeps track of all us crazy brides and our last minute changes but she does it flawlessly! Our day-of coordinator, Julie, was also incredible! She was so friendly and understanding! We had a lot of reception supplies, from home-made centerpieces, a home-made photo booth, to a memorial table and everything was set up beautifully. Julie gave me space when I needed to get some tears out and words of encouragement to calm our nerves before we took the floor for our first dance. We truly cannot thank Julie enough for how smoothly everything went! We are extremely grateful to all the Atkinson staff, especially Jennifer and Julie, for helping make our wedding day a dream come true!
Everything was beautiful and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding venue.
My husband and I got married here in June 2017. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the food is great! I had a great experience working with Jennifer. The planning process was very well thought-out. There were checklists and forms to fill out at certain times, which made the process well-paced yet thorough. Jennifer was always available and very prompt with responding to any questions we had. Our day-of coordinator was Kristine, and she was wonderful too! Always making sure our silly questions were answered and she paced the whole day out wonderfully, and coordinated fully with our other vendors. We didn't have to do a thing except enjoy our day! I would hands-down recommend Atkinson Country Club to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous one-stop shop: on-site ceremony, catering, and reception!
Atkinson was a beautiful place to get married. The wedding coordinator was so helpful throughout the entire process of planning and was there for every question that I could possible have. The day of coordinator was also amazing and made the day as stress free as possible! The only thing I could complain about was that the food was not as good as it was when we attended the tasting. It was less flavorful and a little dry.
Atkinson Resort and Country Club did an amazing job making our wedding day special and enjoyable! We had an excellent time and the coordinators are great. They did all the work for me and made sure everything went smoothly, so I got to go through the motions and actually enjoy my big day!
I don't know where to start, this place is amazing!! From start to finish. We took a tour and instantly knew this was the place, the grounds are GORGEOUS! We got married at the gazebo, the landscape is stunning with the greenery and flowers there's no need to add its simply beautiful on it's own! Until the week leading up to the wedding we worked with Jennifer, she's absolutely amazing!! Organized, passionate about what she does and very responsive to emails, she would respond within minutes, this really reassured me we picked the right place from the start. The the week of the wedding you get your day of coordinator, we had Kristen and oh my we LOVED her, what an absolute delight!!! She too is passionate about what she does and is GOOD at it! If something went wrong ( I must have messed up some table arrangements when making cards) Kristen took care of it and I didn't even know until a week later when a friend told me so I wouldn't stress. She made the day PERFECT, stress free and smooth sailing. (Kristen too is great at getting back emails, communication is KEY in planning). Both Jennifer and Kristen are just so sweet and accommodating, thank you so much! Our reception was in the Brookside room, it's a great size with some great views! We even had a deck where our guests could go outside during the reception. I could go on and on about how great the Atkinson Country Club is. They made our wedding day everything we wanted and more! Thank you so much!
My husband and I got married and had our reception at Atkinson this past July and it was an absolutely perfect day. The wedding coordinators were exemplary- attentive and extremely professional. The entire day ran so smoothly and we owed it all to them. Thank you Jennifer and Kristen for helping make our day so special! Our reception was in the legacy ballroom- there was plenty of space for stations, tables and dancing. We received countless compliments from our wedding guests on the food and venue, specifically how delicious the station meals were (many saying it was the best wedding food they've ever had!). We have also been told by many guests that it was one of the most beautiful outdoor ceremonies they had been to- the grounds at Atkinson are so well kept and make for beautiful pictures. I highly recommend using them for both your wedding ceremony and reception!
I was married at Atkinson CC on 9/15/17 and it was the most amazing day of our lives. Jennifer and Julie were nothing short of spectacular. From the 1st time we went to Atkinson we were immediately sold on its exterior beauty then our meeting with Jennifer sealed the deal. She was so kind and sweet, organized, and has so much passion about wedding planning. We knew we could trust her. This was the 1st and only venue we looked at and we have no regrets! During planning all the way to the end of our wedding, every one from Jennifer and Julie, to the front desk staff, the pro shop, the tavern, and even all of the staff setting up and working our wedding - each and every one of them made us feel welcome, excited and stress free. Even a down pour right before our first look couldn't ruin our day! Jennifer rushed to get us umbrellas, Julie and her team set up a beautiful twinkle-lit back drop for our last minute indoor ceremony. Then they all worked together with our vendors to rearrange our game plan so we could get beautiful photos outdoors when the rain cleared after our ceremony. All of the brides who I know told me about little things that were stressful on their wedding day. I can actually say that my wedding day was the most calm and least stressful day of my life. I didn't worry once. And I attribute that to the excitement to marry my best friend, awesome friends and family, a great venue and amazing vendors. We truly hit the jackpot. We stepped in to the photo booth and the end of the evening to get some photos and my husband looked at me and said "this truly has been the best day of my life" - he took the words right out of my mouth. Thank you so much to Atkinson CC, from the bottom of our hearts, you were a HUGE part of making 9/15/17 the best day of our lives! We would do it all again in a heartbeat.
Jennifer and Christine were awesome to work with. It was a perfect day from morning to night. I highly recommend Atkinson to any bride.
I posted the same on their FB page, but I figured I'd post here and wedding wire because that's where most brides look: Jennifer was PHENOMINAL with helping us plan our wedding! We got a great deal and she gave us her best recommendations for options. Very open and honest; certainly not out just for money--she wanted to make sure we were happy and put our money in the right places. Julie (our wedding day coordinator) was great also. She was great explaining everyone's role during the rehearsal and the day of. She directed the photographer to AMAZING photo opportunities; she and the staff made sure my husband and I had everything we needed for our whole event. The only negative I have to say is when we paid for a light breakfast for the girls in the bridal suite while we got ready, and I was expecting more than 8 pastries (on the smaller side) and more than 1 tray of assorted fruit for 8 girls. But gave us plenty of OJ, coffee, and tea. We had our rehearsal dinner the night prior in the Wine Room, Carroll (our waitress) was wonderful! My husband and I have eaten there. A handful of times and I have yet to have a bad meal or bad service from any part of Atkinson. We had the stations buffet for our wedding and everything was DELICIOUS, definitely recommend the stations buffet..gave our guests a variety of foods to choose from. Highly recommend this venue for anyone looking to book their wedding or other events, or even just for breakfast,lunch, or dinner!
From start to finish everything about The Atkinson Country Club...Jennifer and all the staff was amazing! I had more guests tell me how fabulous the food! The space was beautiful and large enough with plenty of extra space...we got married on New Years Eve and at midnight we had fireworks and they were amazing! I would highly recommend the Atkinson for your wedding or really may function!
I got married here in June of 2017. I spoke with Jennifer Chipman leading up to the wedding day and met my coordinator the week before the wedding. Jennifer was very accessible via email and answered all my questions. We chose the stationed package-the food was amazing and everyone was raving about how good the food was. It was a bit concerning how many little mistakes were made prior to the wedding day. For example, she got my husband's name wrong multiple times sending me the initial contract, typed the wrong hor'deurves on our menu order, sent us another wedding's final bill and then miscalculated our final bill leaving out 3k after I had already paid. Everything on our wedding day ran smoothly, but I was nervous something would go wrong with all the small mistakes. Julie was our day of coordinator and she helped keep the night running smoothly. Be sure to be clear about what you really want as she tried to change up how the bridal party walked out based on how she's seen other weddings do it. We went with the vendor package and all the vendors were great! We had Susanne's weddings for flowers and she did a fantastic job! Her communication via email is unclear and vague so be sure to bring all your questions when you meet with her in person. Jacques Pastries created our cake-no complaints there! We used Main Event for our DJ and had Kelly Elliot as our DJ. I would not recommend her as she did not seem to know a ton of popular music choices and pressed her own agenda on us. We felt as though the music selection for dinner was not what we anticipated and she played older music.
Jennifer and Julie are amazing and talented wedding coordinators! They both are experienced and have excellent customer service skills. I was able to express all questions and concerns to Jennifer leading up to the big day and worked with Julie on the day of the wedding. Julie made me feel comfortable and helped make the day flawless. The grounds are impeccable with beautiful landscape that are very well maintained. I was so happy to marry my amazing husband at the Trellis and I know his mom was with us in spirit with the sun shining and no rain insight. :) We enjoyed our wedding because of the amazing wedding staff. I will recommend large wedding parties to stay just minutes away at the Holiday inn. I feel they are well suited for large parties. The Atkinson allows shuttles and transportation to and from for guests staying at hotels near by. This was very helpful! Thank you again to Jennifer and Julie!!
Great place. Everyone is great. Winter wedding deal is great. Hotel room are really nice.
My husband and I got married on October 2nd, 2016. We had the BEST experience with ARCC! It was better than we could have imaged. I do not know what I would have done without our day of coordinator Julie. She was amazing! I had major "bride brain" and literally forgot all of my paper work for the planning meeting. She worked with me and made it seem like no big deal, even though it total was not cool of me. We had a forecast of possible rain for the day of the wedding, which thank GOD did not happen! Typically they move the ceremony into the reception hall when this happens. Julie arranged to have the hall set up downstairs as a back up ceremony location instead of having it in the reception hall. This was just going way above and beyond in my eyes! I want to sincerely thank ARCC and all their staff from the bottom of my heart! You all really made my wedding the best it could be and I did not have a care in the world that entire day! As it should be!
We loved everything about Atkinson CC. Everyone was so organized. The main thing that stuck out to my husband and I is that this was the only venue we looked at that we didn't feel pressured into having our wedding there. They were so easy to talk to and to plan with. When we had questions they were always a huge help when answering.
Beautiful venue for our fall wedding. It rained on our day, and Atkinson was able to accommodate us in our reception room for the ceremony. The food was great. Jennifer and our personal wedding coordinator were so helpful in the process (when we had no idea what we were doing!) Definitely recommend.

Working one on one with our clients during the planning process allows me the opportunity to get to know couples personally and truly understand what they envision their wedding day to be. It is always my goal to provide attentive and personal service to all of our couples. Photo credit: Photography by Linda
