Venue of our Dreams
Choosing the Tidewater was the best decision we made for our wedding. I can’t recommend the Tidewater enough! From our first visit to the Tidewater, I knew it was going to be a special place, but I could have never expected how perfect our wedding would turn out- all thanks to the Tidewater staff. Melanie, the wedding coordinator, is hands down AMAZING. She was incredibly quick at responding to emails, was so helpful at walking us through every detail of the day to make it exactly as we wanted it and helped us organize everything and everyone. Sara was also incredible. She handled last minute issues like a pro (like how the guys suddenly needed 20 burgers for lunch on our wedding day) and always made us feel like a priority. Brandy was so helpful with creating our seating chart and envisioning our wedding layout. She was so accommodating to our guests who had certain food allergies and wanted to make sure they enjoyed their meals. On our wedding day, each member of the wedding team worked so hard to make sure everything went incredibly smooth and according to plan. They worked behind the scenes to clean up the entire event, bring our cards to our room, and box up all our decorations and flowers. As I look back at wedding pictures, I realize that they even repurposed some of our decorations from the cocktail hour space to the reception space. It goes to show how many little details they took care of that I never noticed or thought about. They made sure the flowers showed up, the cupcakes were delivered and the band was set up as they needed to be. Each member of the wedding team was flat out UNBELIEVABLE! Even down to the bell hops and the kitchen staff, every worker was so kind and did everything they could to make us feel special. Even more than the staff, our guests raved about the food and said the food was “the best wedding food they’ve ever had!”Sent on 10/04/2019
One of our favorite aspects of having our wedding at the Tidewater was that almost everyone was able to stay in the hotel. No need to coordinate buses to get everyone around town, everything you need is right there!
We truly appreciate everything the Tidewater did to make our wedding so perfect.

AMAZING HISTORIC venue, restaurant, & coordinator
My husband and I recently got married at this venue. Prior to booking we had stayed in the hotel and had eaten at their amazing restaurant a year prior. Not only did this venue exceed all of our expectations, but Melanie is the absolute BEST wedding coordinator and a wonderful person. She made the process extremely simplified and assisted at all levels. She was extremely easy to get in contact with and had prompt responses. If you decide to get married at this venue, make sure to go to the huge tasting day event that is filled with lovely food & drinks. The staff at Tidewater Inn are all very sweet and accommodating- from checking in, dropping off decor, answering all my questions, and fulfilling my rehearsal & wedding day needs. My husband and I had SEVERAL amazing comments about the yummy food & gorgeous historic venue from our guests. I know that we will definitely be visiting again soon, and I'm sure some of our guests will too. THANK YOU Melanie and the Tidewater Inn for delivering our dream wedding! :)Sent on 05/17/2019

The perfect weekend!
We had the BEST experience at the Tidewater Inn. Not only is it a beautiful venue, and lovely accommodations, the staff was always exceptional and created a memorable experience. During the planning process we were guided every step of the way by Melanie. She helped us figure out what was best for our small intimate wedding. She even offered us last minute a change in rooms that even better accommodated our vision for the day! The hotel did all our catering for the rehearsal dinner and wedding and all our guests kept raving about how great it all was. We were so pleased with every part of our experience! Even being a small wedding we felt like we were the most important group at the hotel.Sent on 05/11/2019
