About Harbour View

Where Special Events Happen

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.

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. If you would like to see the video: https://www.facebook.com/rimasfilms/videos/433820083628924/

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. =)

The folks at Harbour View are true wedding professionals. It was great to see them in action at a wedding I photographed there. They made the bride and groom feel comfortable even through heavy rain and a busy schedule. I appreciated their attention to detail, helpfulness, and smiles even when things were busy!
