  • 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.

  • I always imagined myself having a barn wedding. However, when I first saw the Refinery, both my husband and I fell in love with this venue! My husband didn’t really comment on other venues that we looked at, but when he saw this venue, he said “wow”. We both loved the rustic and industrialized venue (and who doesn’t like green plants!). Being able to have both the ceremony and reception at the same place was a big plus! And I HAVE to mention the Refinery team and JOY! Joy is really the best. The moment I talked with her for the first time, I could easily tell that she is not only an easy going person, but also loves what she is does and cares for the couple. She answered all my questions, helped me with vendor choices, helped manage my expectations, and really helped me to bring my dream wedding into life! There are so many things that Joy and her team did for me on the wedding day. They took care of little details that I forgot about. Because of them, my wedding w... Read more

  • The only wedding venue we visited, because we knew it was going to be the best one for our wedding! Everything was easy from start to finish, despite COVID, because Joy handled everything wonderfully. From answering our silly questions patiently and helping us prepare for the day of, to coordinating everything flawlessly day of to create a great event, we can't say enough about how happy we were with our experience!

  • Joy was a dream to work with. Incredibly professional. Insanely flexible (especially during the times on Covid and weddings/events). She takes care of her clients, and works closely with them to deliver exactly what they want/need for their special day. The space is gorgeous and Joy and her team are always making updates. Easy process. Affordable. Amazing all-around!

  • Joy, the owner of The Refinery, was the best thing that happened to us during our wedding planning process. Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful, but Joy goes above and beyond to ensure every little detail of your wedding day is planned and goes smoothly. Joy offers her day of coordinating in the pricing for the venue, along with many decorations that are complimentary. Our initial wedding date was postponed due to COVID, and Joy was flexible and accommodating. She immediately reached out to us and confirmed our new date. Due to restrictions because of COVID, our caterer could no longer serve our cocktail hour and buffet. When Joy heard about this, she immediately reached out to hire extra help at no cost to us, to ensure our day was exactly how we had initially planned. The Refinery is one of a kind, and Joy is top notch. We would highly recommend The Refinery to anyone looking for a beautiful and seamless wedding venue!

    Thank you, Rob! You and Allison were such an amazing couple to work with. Thank you for being so flexible and understanding during such a strange time. Wishing you all the most amazing marriage full of GOOD luck and happiness!

  • Joy and the Refinery Team are dream makers! From the first time we met, I knew we were in perfect hands to bring our wedding day to life. She took interest in the vision that we had and helped us troubleshoot through the logistics to bring it to life. With planning from out of state, Joy was there every step of the way from answering any questions we had, giving us vendor recommendations, assisting with vendor communication to make sure the details we were planning with our vendors would successfully work within the venue and assuring us that we could just be present in every moment of our wedding day and she would run the show for us. The Refinery is gorgeous! It is the perfect balance of urban industrial and romantic charm and sets as the perfect backdrop to bring any vision and style to life. Whether you’re local to Culpeper or looking for a charming location to host you event, The Refinery is the PERFECT space to bring your dream day to life. We can’t think of anything we would...

  • The Refinery’s team worked to make sure that our night was seamless. I would recommend this venue for any event, a work dinner, birthday celebration and like us a wedding! From start to finish we had the best day ever. The day after I was told of hiccups (things out of anyone’s control) and I didn’t even notice any of them because of how incredible their team was!!

  • From day one to weeks after the wedding, Joy and her team were amazing. Joy answered messages promptly and reassured me (as the bride) whenever panic would set in. Our DJ, photographer, and caterer were recommendations from Joy and they were all excellent. The venue is truly a gem tucked away in Downtown Culpeper. The photos do not do the venue justice. All of our guests were in awe of the venue and one even said they wanted to get married there for their wedding. I cannot recommend Joy and the entire Refinery Team enough. A lot of wedding vendors look at you as a cash cow, but not Joy. She truly wanted to make sure everything went according to my vision (that definitely changed a few times!). One of Joy's staff members (I think Sarah?) helped put the floral into our wedding cake as I was getting ready and couldn't do it myself. Everything was just perfect. If you are getting married, you have to visit the Refinery!!

  • We had an amazing experience with Joy at The Refinery. From the moment we walked into the venue and met Joy we knew this was where we wanted to celebrate our wedding day. The space was perfect both upstairs and down for us to host our ceremony and reception. All our guest had a wonderful time and raved how beautiful it was. Joy went above and beyond to communicate with us and she listened to my wants and needs. She is very professional and offered ideas and suggestions when I just had no clue or was overwhelmed. She assisted with the intimate details was wonderful with all my vendors and was a blessing coordinating all the day of festivities and helped with itinerary. Joy was like family that day and was such a blessing keeping me in check and making sure my day was all I wanted it to be. Well it was more than I could have dreamed of with all her help. Thank you Joy for bringing my wedding dreams come to fruition. My day was beautiful.

  • Our choice of The Refinery to host our event truly made the day memberable. From the planning that was aided by Joy to the warm feeling of the venue itself, everything went off without a hitch. Joy was sure to answer any, and all, questions no matter how trivial. The site offers an industrial feel that is also warm and welcoming at the same time. I would have no hesitation recommending The Refinery to anyone.

  • Joy has done an awesome job with this venue. It was such an amazing experience being able to have my November wedding here. Not only was it convenient because ceremony and reception location are the same, but the venue was beautifully decorated and the coordination that comes from Joy is seamless. Her and her team do a fantastic job of making you feel like you do not need to worry about everything the day of. The day went perfectly and I felt like I did not have to worry about a single thing that was going on behind the scenes. Joy has great suggestions for vendors to use in the area and anything else that you might have trouble with when planning your wedding. She is great and I would recommend her to anyone!

  • If you’re looking for the most unique and amazing venue space, stop right here! Not only is The Refinery just a beautiful space to be but the team is also amazing! My whole wedding went off without a hitch thanks to this team. Joy met with me multiple times before hand to go over details of everything, she ran the whole day as smooth as possible and she did it all with a big smile on her face! Her staff was so helpful, welcoming and friendly and were there for our every need. They provided a safe space for us and helped make it the best day ever! Highly recommend!
