Have you heard? The Trivium is now open under new management, and we are so excited to have them on board as a vendor with us.
The Trivium is located on 221 and is a beautiful white antebellum that is a great location for a wedding, reception, or even just a party. The new owner of The Trivium is Heidi Baker, and she is so thrilled to be able to get this beautiful location up and running again.
In college, Heidi had two options for her future career. She either wanted to be a CEO of a corporation or an event planner. After spending a year working for a company in Annapolis, she was able to see the demands of a CEO and decided event planning was a much better option.
Heidi and her father were on the lookout for an old farmhouse that they could turn into a wedding venue and as she says, “Fate stepped in because in September, I was casually flipping through the Real Estate book and saw The Trivium.” She mentioned this find to her father, and the next thing she knew, he was calling her and telling her to come look at it. “Naturally, I fell in love with it. We knew it would be a huge undertaking, but we saw the potential and decided to buy it. I never thought I would own and be running my dream business so young, but I am so blessed that I am,” she says.
Since the purchase, Heidi has been working hard to renovate The Trivium by working closely with Interiors by Moyanne to create a fresh and contemporary look that will appeal to more brides. She put herself in a bride’s shoes and asked herself … what would she want when she was getting ready for her big day?
Heidi had to find a way to make sure the men were catered to as much as the women, so she created a “man cave” for the groomsmen, complete with a 42″ flat screen TV and an 80’s classic arcade game system. Heidi also made some changes in the ballroom to create a more elegant feel by adding new chandeliers and stage curtains. “I really wanted to create a wedding venue that has that historic charm but with a bright and fun atmosphere,” she said.
Now you must be wondering what exactly The Trivium can offer a bride. Well first of all, it can offer a beautiful location for her wedding or reception or even both. The Trivium allows the bride to customize her day by allowing outside vendors to have fun extras on the wedding day! The staff at The Trivium understands the importance of the big day, and they do everything to make sure the bride has a stress free time.
Heidi’s vision for the future would definitely be a booked up schedule as she and the staff at The Trivium have worked hard to create a wedding venue for the area that is different than the others. The biggest challenges so far that Heidi has faced is making sure people understand that The Trivium is once again open and is now under new ownership and management. They are working to make sure to create a unique atmosphere of fun and elegance for the whole wedding party.
Why not schedule a visit to The Trivium? Heidi would be more than glad to show you around the property so that you can see all that this wonderful venue has to offer. Call her at 540.586.2823 today, and tell her that Hill City Bride sent you!
