    Beautiful venue

    We were so happy having our wedding here, it was a beautiful space and everything was perfect for our day. The wedding coordinator is super responsive and constantly checks up on you leading up to the event. Would highly recommend the ballroom with the veranda, a lot of my guests enjoyed being able to step out by the water when cooling down from the party.

    Hi Leslie,

    Thank you so much for the kind review. Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and I'm so happy we made your wedding day dream a reality!

    If you want a special venue that is easy for out of town guests, see Kelly Bridgeman at the Sheraton in downtown Norfolk! I booked the Riverwalk Ballroom with a breathtaking view of the Harbor. I was treated to delicious food, set up and table linens, up lighting and special wedding room rates. Not only did they help my other vendors with set-up and deliveries, but the hotel took care of my family from making reservations to meeting their needs all weekend. It was a beautiful day, thanks to these wonderful people and their outgoing thoughtfulness.
