The Waterside Deck
Planning a small wedding but want a waterfront view or a big wedding with the desire for a more intimate feel to your cocktail hour? Look no further than our Waterside Deck! Our enclosed white-wooded Waterside Deck lined with windows facing the Lynnhaven River allows our couples to enjoy a gorgeous water backdrop while giving guests the immersive feeling that they’re at the beach!
With our Waterside Deck you can experience a gorgeous view among your closest family and friends. Due to a smaller venue, such as the Waterside Deck that can accommodate up to 110 guests banquet style or 150 guests with our cocktail style floor plan, you’ll be able to cut the guest list and invite those who matter the most to you. No need to stress about inviting the cousin you haven’t spoken to in years out of obligation because you have the perfect reason not to – your venue only fits up to 100-150! Have a smaller guest count? The smallest wedding we’ve ever hosted in our Waterside Deck was an 10 person wedding and it was just as beautiful, special, and just full of love as our bigger 200 person weddings we cater in our bigger hall – The Lesner Hall. So instead of stressing and feeling overwhelmed with the amount of people to thank and greet go ahead and start relaxing as you’ll be able to enjoy your day after feeling like you’ve accomplished your social obligations in less time while your guests feel more involved and get to experience your day in a much more intimate way!
Not only can a smaller venue cut the day of social stress but it can also relive a lot of the stress when it comes to the planning process. Couples are faced with a lot of difficult and time-consuming decisions, such as decor, centerpieces, linen colors, spacing, etc. By choosing our Waterside Deck, which already provides a gorgeous river view as your backdrop, white wood flooring, and natural lighting through our windows that open to allow the breeze of the Lynnhaven River in, couples receive more flexibility to do smaller and more personalized centerpieces and decor, while their guests get to enjoy the feeling of being at the beach without the pesky sand getting everywhere!
We want you to have the wedding of your dreams, while also experiencing as little stress as possible. Our Waterside Deck can not only host your reception but can also be quickly and easily converted from your ceremony to your cocktail hour. Our staff will handle everything while you and your guests have the time of your lives!
However, if you are still set on having a larger reception but still want to include the intimate atmosphere on your big day then having your cocktail hour in our Waterside Deck may the best solution for you! By having your cocktail hour in our Waterside Deck it allows for guests to mingle with each other while you are finishing up bridal party photos elsewhere. They will enjoy the beautiful view while gushing over the love shared between you and your new spouse!
Not only is the Waterside Deck perfect for weddings but it also works wonderfully for baby showers, rehearsal dinners, bridal parties, birthdays, and more! So come check out the Waterside Deck the next time you’re in Virginia Beach!
