Catering to Your Special Event

| | Leave a Comment

Since we are always hungry over here at Lesner Inn, we decided this week we would highlight how your event Catering can enhance and help to truly personalize your special day.

Over this past season, we have noticed that many couples are shying away from the traditional sit down dinners and going towards more interactive personalized stations for their guests to enjoy.

Top wedding food trends: Themed stations, fun key ingredients, and comfort foods (our Martini Mashed Potato Bar is always a hit!). Chef attendants making food to order, and customized items to play into a theme of your event or cultural background.

Brunch meal service has also been very popular recently. This meal service style offers fun foods and light fare that are relatable to every guest.

We have seen that Plated or Sit down dinners are more common in Northern regions, while stations and buffet style main meals are more common in the South. Plated dinners offer a more formal feel to your event, while stations packages inspire a mingling atmosphere that works perfectly for a cocktail style event.

At Lesner Inn, we give clients the option to choose from a variety of meal service styles offered within our Brunch, Afternoon, or Evening packages. We also offer the ability to piece together a menu of your choice from our extensive list of hors d’oeuvres, stations, and platters. You can upgrade one of our standard packages with the addition of a Chef attended station, or plan an event filled with fun finger foods, or desserts.

We love to hear the types of foods that you envision to make your day complete, and with the help of our in house Chef and Catering Staff, we know we can make these dreams in to realities.

    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!
