and grooms can select from millions of songs to play during their first dance to match their personal styles! With so many songs out there, how do you find one that’s just right for you and your fiancé?

Think back throughout your relationship. Do you already have a song that represents a memory between the two of you? Many couples choose songs that they heard on their first date or even a song that they first danced to when they started dating. Finding personal connections like these will make your first dance even more special!

Another way to find the perfect song is to find a genre or artist you both like. Hop onto your iTunes or Spotify account, and start exploring! Once you target an artist, start listening to their music and select a song that you both enjoy. If you want to perform a more choreographed ballroom dance, instead of a typical slow dance, ask a dance instructor what they think would work best.

    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!
