    Awesome venue, amazing owners and staff...your wedding reception or special event will certainly be well done. We loved working with Kim Jennings and you will too!

    We booked City View after my dream location was already booked (and condemned the Tuesday before the wedding, so close miss there!). We booked the all inclusive package, so you pay a overall fee, and then certain amounts are allocated to different vendors (flowers, cake, food, etc.). You are welcome to bring in outside vendors and they'll just not charge you for that portion of the package. I was very nervous leading up to the big day because I didn't feel like everything was organized and would go as planned, but I was completely wrong. Kim was there for the rehearsal and actual ceremony and it went off without a hitch. Everything was perfect and she was in touch throughout the reception without being noticeable as we made adjustments to the times of different events based on how the wedding was flowing. The venue was absolutely stunning at night with all the glass and the candles we'd placed in the windows. The only downfall is that City View doesn't have a handicapped restroom and my dress was too big to fit into a normal stall. We had to run down to Terrace View (where another wedding reception was taking place) and dash into their restroom.

    This venue was absolutely perfect for our reception. We wanted something indoors since the chance of rain on this day was very likely, but in VA there's a lot of humidity so we wanted to stay cool. Kim and Karen will work with you in every way possible. The venue itself is very beautiful on the inside with a perfect view of Lynchburg.
