On WeddingWire since 2017

The Historic Post Office is a beautiful historic wedding venue located on the waterfront in Hampton, Virginia. This venue was built in 1914 and served as the largest US post office in the area at the time. Since then, it has gone through multiple owners, including being used as a restaurant and a film studio. The Historic Post Office has been a wedding venue since January 2017.

The two-story building combines its historic charm with exquisite and sleek modern design elements. Interior design features include dark wood floors, white brick walls, and other historical touches. Each event space is customizable and has a flexible floor plan. Couples can access a comfortable get-ready suite and lounge to peacefully prepare before the big moments. The Historic Post Office can host up to 250 people for sit-down receptions and 400 guests for standing events.

DREAM wedding venue

I cannot say enough great things about the Historic Post Office. From day one, they provided direct and concise communication which made comparing venues very easy and is one of the many things that drew us there. The day-of-coordination service is one of the most helpful a la carte items they offer. Our DOC was able to guide us to vendors within our price range, answer any and all questions we had, and really helped us shape our day through her questions and experience. We were one of the countless couples who had to postpone their big celebration due to the pandemic but we were fortunate enough to be able to use the HPO for our elopement in 2021 and celebration in 2022. Having the DOC as a point of contact at both events was so special and she went above and beyond to ensure that our elopement was still a sweet and memorable day. The bridal suite and grooms lounge access kept the day stress free and running on time, there was plenty of space for the wedding party to get ready comfortably, and also provide beautiful backdrops for getting ready photography and portraits. It is so easy to customize your event through add-ons like lighting, the venue itself is a perfect canvas for any mood/vibe/theme imaginable, and the HPO team has the experience to ensure a smooth wedding day. I would recommend the HPO and their coordination services to any and everyone, it is, in my opinion, the perfect venue.

Wedding Review

The Historic Post Office simply did not disappoint. The venue was clean and the staff was wonderful. Ellie was our coordinator and she went above and beyond to ensure that our special day was nothing short of perfect. She was available throughout the entire planning process. I knew I could count on her for anything! The venue itself is elegant and had everything we needed for the day of. The wedding party suites were comfortable and spacious, giving everyone plenty of space to get ready and spend the day together. We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding day. Thank you all so much for everything you did!

Amazing Venue and Staff

Absolutely loved working with the HPO over the course of a year as I planned my wedding. It provides you with the perfect clean-slate venue that allows you to bring in your own vendors and really make the place your own. The staff is so lovely to work with and made the process so easy. Special shout out to my wedding coordinator Sylvia, who I couldn’t have imagined the day without. She coordinated all of my vendors and told me where to go and when on the day-of, which made everything so easy. It’s 100% worth the money to get one because they know the vendors and space so well. Loved my experience at this absolutely gorgeous venue and wouldn’t have had it any other way. Thank you!

We love working @ The Historic Post Office! There are so many possibilities within the space and the area nearby is great for photos. The time and attention to detail that went into the renovations is just amazing - you won't be disappointed!

The Historic Post Office is the perfect venue for large or small weddings (or any event, really!). The building is unique because it's historic and has a ton of character and charm, yet is also a blank canvas so it can host many different styles. It is hard to find a really beautiful, flexible indoor space for a large wedding, but this place is perfect! The upstairs and downstairs is a really neat aspect as well that you can't find anywhere else. Kelsey and her team are really dedicated to making sure everything is perfect for their events, and they are also willing to go outside of the box with new ideas. We highly recommend The Historic Post Office to brides, businesses, or anyone looking to host in a neat location with a wonderful support staff.
