About Harbour View
Harbour View is a private waterfront wedding venue in Northern Virginia, conveniently located just 30 minutes from downtown Washington, DC. Featuring a unique indoor-outdoor Veranda, ballrooms flooded with natural light, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Occoquan River, this venue offers the perfect combination of natural beauty and modern convenience.
Facilities and Capacity
As one of the most spacious venues in the Northern Virginia area, Harbour View can accommodate wedding ceremonies of 10 to 240 guests, and wedding receptions of 10 to 320 guests. Upon arriving at Harbour View couples and their guests will enter the open-air Veranda. This space is entirely covered and enclosed on 3 sides, but open on the fourth side to a sweeping view of the river, allowing for the perfect outdoor ceremony experience without concern for the weather. On either side of the Veranda are two private dressing suites where couples can relax as they prepare for their big day. After the ceremony couples can make use of the beautifully landscaped waterfront areas for photos, while Harbour View's team of coordinators invite guests to the second floor for the reception.
Arriving upstairs, guests enter the Gallery, a classy space with gleaming hardwood floors, ideal for cocktails. For larger parties, couples can use Harbour View's petite ballroom, the Hutchinson Room, for additional cocktail space. The Hutchinson Room is also perfect for smaller receptions of up to 80 guests. For larger receptions, couples will host their reception in Harbour View's grand ballroom, Sewall's Point, featuring a huge built-in hardwood dance floor and whimsical lighting. The natural and elegant decor in both ballrooms allow couples to easily incorporate their preferred theme and colors, while each of the ballroom doors open to a building-spanning balcony with impressive views of the river and marina below. No matter which of the ballrooms a couple chooses to use, they will always have exclusive private use of the entire second floor of the venue, ensuring that Harbour View's coordination team can focus their full attention on their most special of celebrations.
