Beautiful charming location, fabulous staff!
We were looking for a location that had charm with the space to hold a large group. This location was unique and everyone commented on how lovely the venue was. We felt very well taken care of and everyone had a blast during the reception.Sent on 12/28/2019

We honestly can't sing enough praises for the Harbour View team. From start to finish, the staff worked tirelessly to make sure that our day went smoothly. They set up the decorations we dropped off, packed our catering leftovers and gifts into our cars before the end of the reception, and even gave us a beautiful personalized gift themselves. The staff works very hard to ensure that bride and groom are not stressed with logistics and timekeeping on the day of the event. Any time that I did ask whether I was behind schedule (e.g. when I was getting dressed before the ceremony), my day-of coordinator, Amanda, reassured me and let me know that regardless of timing, the staff would make sure that my day went the way I wanted it to - which it definitely did. Very professional/organized team, but more importantly: they really give each client their full attention, even though they have lots of other events to plan. They're truly amazing people and the venue is gorgeous. I'd recommend them to anyone.Sent on 12/18/2019
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. =)
