So…not sure if you all know, but today is June 3rd, which is a kind of BIG day in the world of dessert lovers.  It’s National Donut Day. So if you are as dessert & donut crazy as we are (and there’s no shame in that), we hope you enjoy today’s blog with a mouth full of your favorite donut(s).

While the traditional wedding cake has not been completely replaced, alternatives have paved their way into the wedding dessert industry.  Many couples forego the formality and cost of a traditional 3 or 4 tier wedding cake and opt for a fun, lighthearted and delicious dessert substitute – like a tower of homemade powdered or glazed donuts – instead.  While the donut tower may seem unconventional, it’s a unique way to set your special day apart from the rest, and it still amuses the bouche.

While the bride (or groom) may want the traditional wedding cake and/or cake cutting experience, but the groom (or bride) yearns for the donut finale… don’t fret! Compromise is KEY in marriage. Top your donut cake with a top tier. This way, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds and still get the cake cutting photographs 🙂

You DO-NUT say no to a donut to-go!  At The Lesner Inn, we’ve seen donuts as a favor on a number of occasions. It’s such a great idea!  After a night filled with eating and drinking, there’s nothing better to end your night or start your morning with than a sweet treat. PS. How cute is the sign and the set up?! Je l’adore!

Donuts are quite the crowd pleaser. Guests (& vendors) are always happy when they get to indulge.  Check out Danny (Astro DJ) & Dustin Lewis (photographer) enjoying some Duck Donuts with the new Mr. & Mrs. Binkowski, at their wedding at The Lesner Inn in October! I mean, you don’t need to twist our arms. We will never turn down a donut (especially not one from Duck Donuts!

    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!
