Harbour View was the perfect choice for our wedding!
We are so lucky we found Harbour View. The venue layout was perfect for our unique needs, but the staff are what really made our process and day incredible.Sent on 01/31/2019
My husband and I had a multicultural wedding with two ceremonies in the same day. The space at HV allowed us to have one ceremony in the morning on the second floor, move into lunch, then a second ceremony in the evening on the first floor, followed by cocktail hour and reception, all without having to re-use the same space back-to-back. Also, the view of the marina is beautiful, especially in a lovely autumn sunset! There's plenty of parking and space to accommodate our guest count of over 140. Our bride and groom suites were comfortable and spacious enough to suit our needs.
Now, onto the amazing staff. Katelyn was our coordinator and worked with us through every step of the process, from signing to overseeing the entire day of. This was really important to us given the complexity of the day. Katelyn, Rachel (who handled the second half of our day), and all the ladies at HV were so patient and helpful with our many questions and emails throughout the process to make sure our vision was realized. Katelyn and Rachel really made us feel like they were personally invested, and they did so much WORK on our day, including setting up a mandap with their own hands the night before and morning of! They had great ideas and helped us understand what to expect and how best to plan out the day. We were so grateful for the chance to drop off supplies early to minimize the amount of rushing on the morning of to get everything ready, and everything ended up going very smoothly. The decorations the HV staff set up were beautiful, and they had great recommendations for other vendors.
When we booked HV, we had read that the coordinators are great at making your day easy and stress-free, and that's exactly what we got. As a couple who planned their entire wedding on their own, with minimal experience, the staff at HV were invaluable for organizing and coordinating a whole-day event with two ceremonies, two meals, a cocktail hour, and reception. Their help took so much pressure off my husband and I as well as our families! Everyone enjoyed the day and loved the venue. In the end, we got a great value in both price and above-and-beyond service. Thank you HV for helping to make our day so magical!

It is never easy to choose a venue for your special day, just as it is difficult to choose a wedding planner. A person, who will know and share every trouble and joy for the most important day of your life. So, if at all possible, two should be connected! The first wedding of this spring for RIMAS FILMS, took place in the beautiful Virginia and its outstanding wedding venue and events planners – Harbour View. Although the ceremony took place in the church, Harbour View and its team did an amazing job keeping the guests entertained and happy. And the wedding reception was a true success with everything planned perfectly to a tiniest detail! The bride and groom relaxed and enjoyed their day, while everything was looked after by hardworking Harbour View staff. And the views of the venue offered the perfect background for a gorgeous wedding music video. Harbour View is the perfect choice and RIMAS FILMS cannot recommend it highly enough.

Harbour View is about as perfect a location and venue as you can get. It is located in the easily-accessible town of Occoquan, just over the Fairfax County line and on the Occoquan River ... and overlooking the river. It is "inside" on the first floor ... but with all the wonder of the outdoors, because the side overlooking the river is open (able to have see-through walls during inclement weather) to enjoy the breezes and the feeling of being right on the river. However (BIG plus in summer), it is shaded, has nice tile floor and a rug for where the guests sit. After the ceremony, you go upstairs to a beautiful reception room overlooking the river. But first to the Pre-Function area for cocktails and appetizers. The set-up is perfect and done with elegant materials. You just won't find any better. On top of all that, the staff is gracious and extremely accommodating. You won't have anything to worry about at all. Every time someone asks me to officiate a wedding at Harbour View, I tell them " you have made a WISE choice!"
The ladies at Harbour View are the BEST! I always love working with clients who book their event at Harbour View. The staff is so friendly, flexible, and fun. Most importantly, they are client focused and want their client to have the best experience possible. They have a team mentality so they are willing to work with me and around my setup schedule to ensure I have the time I need (request) to dress the chairs beautifully. I could go on, but you know, I have to get back to work. =)
