The Woman's Club of Portsmouth was the perfect venue for our August wedding. We were originally going to have our ceremony on the back deck, but with the summer heat and no shade, it easily felt 10-15 degrees hotter up there so we ultimately decided to do our ceremony on the side lawn which ended up being so beautiful and not to mention, much cooler. Our cocktail hour was held on the covered front porch under the fans. The inside of the venue, including the bridal suite and reception space, were spacious and absolutely beautiful with the cathedral ceiling, gorgeous chandeliers and wood floors - perfect for a vintage or rustic-themed wedding. Leading up to our big day, my fiancé, family and I made many trips to the Woman Club to take pictures, measurements, etc. Each and every time, Brittney was there to answer our many questions and greatly accomodated us when it came to our chair rentals being dropped off and picked up. The only thing I would change about this venue is what you receive for the price. Having rehearsal there is an additional cost and not always a guarantee if there's another wedding booked the day before and on the day of, you only have the venue for a 12-hr block of time. That made it a little stressful when coordinating hair and makeup (which we ended up doing off site because we had so many people) as well as setting up decorations. Otherwise, the Woman's Club is beautiful as it stands on its own, so you can get away with doing less decorations whereas other venues you really have to dress it up to make it look nice. And unlike other venues, the Woman's Club truly has a wide variety of options in which to hold your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. This venue is a gem not only for Portsmouth, but for Hampton Roads as a whole!

The Woman's Club of Portsmouth was the perfect venue for our July wedding. We had our ceremony on the back deck with the pretty trees and trellis in the background, cocktail hour on the lawn and under the fans on the front porch, and the reception inside with the gorgeous chandeliers and hardwood floors. The bathrooms are very clean and spacious. The bridal suite is also nice and spacious, with multiple mirrors and a bathroom. Many vendors have been to the Woman's Club before, so that helped make the big day less stressful. The only negative thing my husband and I could think of is we had to pay to rehearse there and you do not get the venue for the whole entire day, so we were a little stressed trying to get everything set up before the ceremony started. Other than that, it is a wonderful venue!

This venue is as classic and gorgeous as they come! The light stream in even when it is gloomy out. There is enough room to have a gorgeous outdoor space, but in case it does rain the indoor is easy to transform and still just as beautiful for a ceremony. As a photographer I enjoy this venue because of the light and how clean and simple it is! The staff are very careful to keep the flow going and some of the best pros in the industry have worked here! I highly recommend my couples this venue!

The Woman's Club of Portsmouth is a bit of a hidden gem in the area. It's a beautiful and versatile venue that I highly recommend. There's a sizable indoor hall, large front porch, and a nice back deck as well. I've worked there a few times recently, and each wedding has been beautiful. The neutral decor offers a blank slate to build your vision, plus you'll have the flexibility to use the caterer of your choice. Many brides choose to have the ceremony indoors, then an outdoor cocktail hour while the room is transformed for the reception. Check them out soon. I've heard more than one clients say they book up fast!

Greet venue. The ladies provide excellent customer service and they make sure they do everything they can to please the clients.

I love the Woman's Club of Portsmouth. From the bridal suite to the balcony to the wood and gorgeous glowing walls, it is simply fabulous. The porch is perfect for cocktail hours and the tent is custom made for you just in case it rains.

I love, love, love, this venue! Something about the vaulted ceilings and the wood floor. The light is perfect and either porches create great energy for any component. Take a look in person and you will fall in love too!!
