The wedding venue is central to the overall atmosphere, theme, and vibe that your wedding will encompass. You can’t very well have a country-themed wedding in a five-star hotel ballroom or a black-tie soiree in a barn. Well, you technically could, but we don’t recommend it.

Your wedding venue choice will dictate the ambiance that you create and dictate the parameters for the maximum number of guests, budget, selection of wedding vendors, and how late you can party into the night. The wedding venue is generally chosen before all of the other puzzle pieces fit into place, but it is essential to think about the bigger picture. Please have a look through our top choices for wedding venues in and around Chesapeake, Virginia.
