Behind the Scenes of Wedding Coordination

| , , , , , , , , , , , ,

One of the many services that we highly recommend for your wedding day is a day-of wedding coordinator. It will take a tremendous amount of stress off your shoulders the weeks leading up in the little details and keep you from worrying when your big day arrives! Luckily for our couples, Lesner Inn offers day-of coordination and we want to give you a sneak peek behind the scenes of what we do to make sure your day goes off without a hitch!

Wedding Day Prep

This will start anywhere from 2-4 weeks out from your wedding date going through all of the nitty-gritty details of a detailed timeline, vendor information, floor plans, décor, and much more relating to the ceremony and reception. After the final meeting, we will finalize all details with your vendors and help you through rehearsal so all goes perfectly on your big day!


It’s your wedding day!! Taking all the stress off of you on this day is our number one priority. We are there to review the site beforehand for proper set up, ensure all personalWedding-Venue-Virginia-Beach-Lesner-Inn (29) décor is set, distribute and pin the wedding party and special guest flowers, cue music and manage processional/recessional, and direct guests to the cocktail hour space. All of this will allow you to enjoy time before the ceremony with your wedding party and have everything start your dream day off without a hitch!

After the ceremony, we are there the rest of the night to be the liaison between you and your vendors, ensure the timeline is followed accordingly throughout the night, and send you off as newlyweds. We will be busy assisting the venue manager with anything they need, preparing the wedding party for the grand entrance, and assisting your DJ/band with the grand entrance, toasts, cake cutting, and any other special events. After you’re off as a married couple, we will ensure that all personal décor is broken down and, along with your gifts, are put into the car of your choice!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
