    The day went perfectly

    Commune was amazing! We had to move the date multiple times because of the pandemic. Jesse and Jenelle are the event coordinators and they made sure that everything went smoothly. They made sure we didn't miss anything as we neared the wedding date and on the day of we didn't have to lift a finger. The chef put together the most amazing spread of food. Our guests said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding.

    Great Experience and Incredible Food at Commune

    We had a wonderful experience with our ceremony and reception venue, Commune Norfolk! After a bit of rough start due to management changes, and inevitable Covid difficulties, Head Chef Kip and Event Director Jesse went the extra mile to ensure we were respected and amply taken care of, with every detail of the food and drinks lovingly considered, researched, and executed for that perfectly decadent guest experience we dreamed of. The custom cocktails they designed just for our tastes, the professionalism of Jesse and her event team in transforming the space during our cocktail hour, and the care and love Kip and Jesse put into their menus is clear in everything they do. We had the vegans and native Florentines alike raving over the quality and innovation of our family-style, Virginia-sourced menu. They respected our budget, were an exceptional value, and their amazing charitable organization, the Crop Foundation, received support from our wedding, and how cool is that? We'd absolutely head back to Commune for any event where the food and the vibe are crucial aspects of the day, and when you want the very best in staff attitude, flexibility and professionalism. Thank you for making our day perfect, Commune!
