Our outdoor wedding venue is located on Smith Mountain Lake nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The setting includes a five-acre point surrounded by water with breathtaking views of both the lake and mountains.
The waterfront venue includes a covered pavilion measuring 81' by 31', with a stage at one end for a band or DJ. The pavilion can be enclosed in the event of inclement weather. There are twelve picnic tables, two round metal mesh tables with five chairs each, and two mesh cocktail tables. There is a small building with both air conditioning and heat which houses a staging area with a refrigerator and two large bathrooms. There are portable bathrooms as well as floating docks for guests arriving by water.
Optional rentals include: a nostalgic, antique carousel; a wooden, parquet dance floor; outdoor patio heaters; and to accommodate your dining set-up or caterers, a commercial warming oven and commercial refrigerator/freezer.
To set up an appointment to view Parkway Marina's venue, please call Ronnee at 540-297-4412. She will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Best sunset views on the lake!
Absolutely beautiful views surrounding a super flexible pavilion that could easily be dressed up or dressed down depending on the event. The owners are super flexible and allowed us to decorate as we saw fit which included attaching drapes to the posts, lights to the ceiling, and even give the option to let you rent for an entire weekend for set up and break down. The venue has some of the best views on the lake so the sunset was spectacular! Our family even rented the carousel for our cocktail hour which was such a great ice breaker for everyone and a huge hit with the kids. It’s was the perfect setting for the very best day!Sent on 12/07/2018

Would definitely recommend!
We both had an awesome time! Everything was organized and any questions I had up until the wedding was answered quickly. The staff is very nice and was on top of things. I used the carousel for my wedding and the staff opened and closed it with no problems. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone having a wedding!Sent on 10/22/2018
