Heritage Country Club

The reception will be taking place starting at 5pm in the ballroom of the historical Heritage Country Club in Johnson City, New York. The facility and grounds have been used as a country club since IBM purchased them in 1931. The oldest part of the main building (the brick house) dates back to the 1800s when an early pioneer to the area built it from bricks made on-site. A double-gym was added to the main building in 1951. The club has been going through various renovations since 1998, but retains most of its mid-1900's charm.

Although Lu had always pictured her wedding reception to be at some posh hotel or at a local bed-and-breakfast or winery, having the reception at the Heritage Country Club holds some personal sentiment. She spent many days hanging out there as a child and teenager - in the game room, watching friends play basketball, or even bowling a few games! On top of all that, the grounds are beautiful, and there is plenty of space for the large number of guests invited to dance and mingle.

Be sure to have a cup of Hot Mulled Cider and various Italian cookies during the Venetian Hour, compliments of Tim and Lu!
