Top Reasons to Have a Brunch Wedding at Lesner Inn

| , , , , | Leave a Comment

While some may not think of IHOP’s National Pancake Day as a holiday, we find it to be one of the best faux holidays around!  Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day, but it’s also a meal where you can get creative with your food and beverage options!  From the classic breakfast of eggs & bacon to the trendy chicken & waffles brunch, there are so many different ways to create a brunch menu.  In celebration of National Pancake Day, here are some of our favorite reasons to have a brunch wedding at the Lesner Inn!

The Setting

The view of the Lynnhaven River on a sunny day, from either of our decks, is so picturesque you will have some of the most beautiful wedding photos to reflect on.

The Cost

Typically, holding an afternoon event with us at the Lesner Inn is more cost efficient than having an evening wedding.  This all depends on your guest count and the menu items that you choose, but  the overall cost is expected to be less than an evening wedding based on our food and beverage minimums!

Having a wedding in the daytime can also save you money on fancy uplighting!

The Food

Our recently updated brunch wedding menu has some fun and trendy brunch ideas that will have your guests thinking you’re a breakfast genius!  The stations package is by far our favorite, featuring clever stations like the chicken & waffles and breakfast taco stations, and of course classic stations for omelets, ham & biscuits, and so many more!

The Drinks

Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas are arguably the smartest drink concoctions ever created.  Not only do they cure your rehearsal dinner hangover, but they get the party started all over again!

The Dessert

Instead of sticking to the traditional tiered wedding cake, you can bring donuts in as an lesner-inn-weddings-brunch-donutsalternative!  We suggest Duck Donuts because their maple bacon donuts are just simply amazing!  Pick up a couple dozen donuts of different fun flavors, and arrange them on a cupcake stand!

OR why not have a cake made out of stacked pancakes or waffles?  GAME CHANGER!

The Party

Just because an afternoon event at the Lesner Inn must end by 3:00 PM doesn’t mean the party has to end.  Bring your guests to one of our neighboring restaurants, Bubba’s or the Back Deck, for your after party!  But then again who said you have to use our brunch menu in the morning?  Breakfast for dinner is always a good idea!

    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!
