    The Williamsburg Inn Gave Us Our Dream Wedding

    Almost three months ago prior to the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic and its ultimate shut down of not only Colonial Williamsburg, but of the United States as a whole, we were able to have the wedding of our dreams at The Williamsburg Inn. Even with all that has happened and was happening before and during our special day the team at Colonial Williamsburg came through for us.

    No wedding day is perfect on every account. Neither of us believe that is possible and we went into our day knowing this. There are always the last-minute things that are forgotten or sudden disappointments that you did not expect. And that’s when there isn’t a Global Pandemic breathing down your neck. But the comments we got from all of our guests, family, and friends was simple. “This was perfect, everything was perfect!”. From the Doormen, Valet Parking Attendants, and Custodial Staff to the Cooks, Servers, Bartenders, and Groundskeepers, no problem or fault could be found by those we invited to share in our special day. Everyone stated they felt safe, enthused, taken care of, relaxed, and joyous all weekend.

    The staff is incredibly communicative during all phases of the planning and executing of the wedding and reception. Their venues are second to none, and the historical architecture made our special day feel once in a lifetime. If you are looking for a wonderfully elegant, classy, and incredible all in one experience you should look no further than the Williamsburg Inn and it's grounds.

    Above and beyond hospitality!

    My fiance and I decided to elope after so many plans fell through due to planning a wedding during the pandemic. We are from Northern VA and wanted a location within a few hours from home where we could have a private wedding, just the two of us. We decided on the Williamsburg Inn after reading the history of the hotel and seeing pictures of the grounds. We were not disappointed when we arrived, being greeted by gracious staff and having a look around at the classic luxury of the property. My fiance was in touch with the hotel prior to our arrival to ask about having our private ceremony on the grounds. The desk directed us to Leslie, the GM, who was very generous and accommodating. She answered all of our questions, made sure the staff was aware of our plans, and offered anything she could do to make our time there special. All of the bell, front office and housekeeping staff were friendly and quick to help with any request- big or small. We visited the restaurant for breakfast and lunch while we were there and had drinks on the patio as well- everyone was friendly and offered their congratulations. I also visited the Spa twice which was just a short walk down the path from the hotel. All in all we don't think we could have picked a better place! We can't wait to visit in the warmer months and plan to visit each year as a special celebration of our 2020 wedding :)
