Helpful & Responsive. We were treated so well! (Williamsburg Inn)
We had a great time having our wedding at the Williamsburg Inn. We worked with Brittany to get the contract for the venue, and then we met with Yuani to help us coordinate the day of. Both were wonderful in terms of understanding our needs, answering our questions, and providing suggestions. They were very flexible and communicative.Sent on 04/04/2019
We worked with Yuani a lot, which made our wedding immensely less stressful. She was very calm and so incredibly helpful when it came to getting a timeline and coordinating with the vendors on the day of. We had to move our wedding inside, and we ended up using a different ballroom instead of our original rain backup plan (same room as reception), which was beautiful and a wonderful suprise.
As for the night of accomodations, my husband and I had a wonderful experience. We used the Perry Shaw Hepburn room to get ready (no bathroom), but it happened to be connected to our night of room! The staff came in between the ceremony and the end of reception and set up everything so nicely for us. There was champagne, chocolates, fresh towels, and a personal note. It made us feel so special, and we had such a wonderful experience there. We really hope to come back for an anniversary!
The Inn also did our cake and our dinner. The bar service & specialty cocktail we chose, and everyone commented on how delicious the food was. Not typical or bland, as some event food can be sometimes, but intensely flavorful and felt very healthy and light. The cake was divine as well. Overall such a good experience.

Flawless, Exquisite, Perfect in Every Way!
I cannot think of a more exquisite wedding reception venue than the Williamsburg Inn! Every detail was perfect for our early spring event, even the weather cooperated!Sent on 04/05/2019
Our out-of-town guests loved their accommodations in the Griffin Hotel and enjoyed being in Colonial Williamsburg with so much to see and do.
On the big day, guests spilled out of the East Lounge onto the beautiful patio overlooking the well-landscaped grounds during the cocktail hour while being serenaded by the Jamestown Quartet. Dinner and dancing followed in the newly renovated Regency Room.
We worked with Yuani Valentine over a 10-month period to plan every detail of the event. She is knowledgeable and charming, provides great advice, attends to every detail, and honors every request. The event was flawless! Our special thanks to the Chef who created 78 amazingly perfect meals and received rave reviews from our guests. And thanks to the wait staff and bartenders who performed just as you would expect --- competent, professional, and courteous.
Thank you, Williamsburg Inn, for making our special day so memorable!

Elegant 5-Star Venue with Charm and Hospitality (Williamsburg Inn)
Written by Mother of Bride -- Stephanie and Zachary married on 10/27/2018Sent on 12/05/2018
The Forbes 5-Star Williamsburg Inn provided a truly elegant venue and totally outstanding experience for our daughter's dream-come-true wedding reception! From our initial visit to the Inn in December 2017, the delightful wedding sales and planning team of Brittany Rice and Yuani Valentine helped us make our daughter’s wedding reception the perfect celebration for her most special day! And on Stephanie and Zachary’s wedding day, The Williamsburg Inn really felt like our very own magnificent and charming home. From the warm welcome at front doors of the Inn, to a beautiful sunset cocktail hour in the East Lounge and patio (while the bride and groom enjoyed a private celebration in the Inn’s quaint Library), followed by a gorgeous wedding reception in the Regency Room, topped off with nightcaps in the Lounge, and then finished with a lovely suite for the newlyweds…5-STAR WOW!!! Our guests raved about the food and drinks, but most importantly, about the gracious service and charming elegance (and fun!) of the wedding celebration. My husband and I greatly appreciated the Inn's complete wedding package that included the cocktail hour with appetizers, three course dinner, open bar, personalized wedding cake, champagne toast, and two nights complimentary stay at the Inn! And the best surprise was no surprise with the final bill, as it was exactly what we had planned. The Inn’s list of Preferred Vendors was also very helpful in finding top-notch vendors who provided fabulous wedding services. We are so grateful for Yuani Valentine (Manager of Weddings & Special Events), who is always a total joy to work with and makes wedding planning fun and worry-free. Yuani’s great depth of wedding planning experience is invaluable for helping her clients design their perfect celebration…and that she does with grace and style and ease!
This venue is one of the top destinations on the East Coast for special events and weddings. It's absolutely gorgeous, and the staff are professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend The Williamsburg Inn and Lodge with their gardens and other beautiful vistas for any occasion.
