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.Sent on 07/23/2013

Kelly Bridgeman at the Sheraton Waterside Norfolk Hotel was SO extremely helpful in the planning of our wedding. She was very flexible in letting us choose the location of the ceremony, removing dairy from our buffet meals, providing gluten free meals, allowing us to get kosher catering for some guests, and much more. We had originally planned to pay for our guests' parking, but there was a miscommunication on all parts and our guests wound up paying for their own parking anyway because they did not see the parking tickets laid out. Other than that, everything was great. The food was fantastic, everyone commented on how much they loved it. The venue was beautiful, even though we had to move the ceremony indoors because of weather. There was a really loud dance competition going on upstairs while we were there ,but we could not hear it in the ceremony hall OR the reception, so we were impressed by that. The dance floor started to fall apart and had to be cleared a few times so they could tape it back together, which was a little bit of an annoyance, but did not take away from the great time everyone had at the Sheraton. Apparently some family members loved the hotel beds so much they researched how to purchase one!Sent on 03/19/2014
