Apple picking, pumpkin patches, haunted houses and more! Not only is there so many activities to do but it’s also one of our favorite seasons to plan a wedding around! The endless amounts of deep orange, reds, and greens make the perfect color palette to create your fall wedding dream come true, so keep reading to find out how a real wedding at Lesner Inn said “I do” to the autumn breeze and each other!

Our amazing couple, Cameron and Chris, created the perfect fall wedding theme by adding touches of the season to their décor, favors, centerpieces, and guest book. Instead of a traditional guest book, Cameron and Chris opted for their guests to sign their two small fake pumpkins, which would surround their larger pumpkin pictured to the left that contained the initial of their last name as a couple.

After signing, their guests could find their seats at their designated table, which was dressed with a white underlay and pops of orange and the fall season in their napkins and floral centerpieces. However, instead of floating candles or vases, their centerpieces were alternated with the first few tables displaying a candle lantern surrounded by their shades of orange flowers and tiny pumpkins. The rest of the tables showcased a large pumpkin with their flowers coming out of it! A true sight to see and even more amazing to know that the mother of the bride created them!

As for their favors, our couple gifted their guests with miniature candles that contained a label on the top with their last name and their wedding date on it, so not only did their guests go home with amazing smelling miniature candles but they could re-use the jar once the candle was done – who doesn’t love re-usable gifts! Throughout the night their guest could also be seen enjoying their fall inspired orange cupcakes and signature fall cocktail at the bar they personalized and named in honor of their dog – The Rookie!

Other great mentions are the bridal bouquet, which contained different shades of the color orange, the bridal party’s teal dresses that not only matched the set color palette of orange shades but also allowed them to pop and stand out! Lastly, the fire truck that made a statement throughout the evening  and looked absolutely amazing in the photos – did we mention the groom was a firefighter?

Cameron & Chris’ wedding was an unforgettable and absolutely beautiful night but it was their night so if you’re creating a fall themed wedding then make it yours! Personalize the night and have fun! As for Cameron and Chris – here’s a huge CONGRATULATIONS from all of us here at the Lesner Inn!


An unforgettable fall night! May you enjoy each fall together from here to infinity!

    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!
