Welcome to Your Fairytale

You’ve found that special someone and you’re going to spend the rest of your lives together. This calls for a special celebration. Whether your wedding is the party of the year or an intimate occasion, Chesapeake, VA is a beautiful place to say “I do.” We’ve got you covered with everything you need to plan the perfect wedding so you can focus on what’s most important: love.

The Perfect Venue

A great wedding begins with a great venue. Luckily, Chesapeake's wedding venues include everything from romantic 18th-century farmhouses to vast ballrooms.

The Chesapeake Conference Center has an award-winning culinary team and an in-house staff to help you plan every last detail, from the champagne toast to the DJ. Or you can fall in love all over again beneath 100-year-old oak trees at the historic Greenbrier Farms, one of the premier wedding venues in Chesapeake.

A Chesapeake Arboretum wedding will suit the nature-loving couple. A farmhouse built in the 1700s, picturesque themed gardens, and meandering trails provide many opportunities to steal a kiss or two and get those photos you’ll always cherish.

Cozy Digs

Chesapeake, VA offers comfortable accommodations for wedding guests, and a few feature large meeting spaces ideal for your rehearsal dinner or farewell brunch. Delta by Marriott is within walking distance of the Chesapeake Conference Center, while Wingate by Wyndham puts your guests in the heart of Chesapeake near fine dining restaurants.

Wine & Dine

Whether you’re planning a bridesmaid’s brunch, a bachelor party, or your rehearsal dinner, there are many dining options for guests attending weddings in Chesapeake. The Butcher’s Son Chop House has private rooms available for rehearsal dinners and receptions with an in-house coordinator to handle all the details, including special menus and beverage service.

Bars and wine tasting rooms serve everything from beer on tap to tapas. Sample wines from around the world at Branches Tasting Room, or enjoy the laid-back vibe at The Garage Brewery.

There’s a Vendor for That

From saying yes to the dress to picking the photo booth, Chesapeake wedding vendors provide every service imaginable.

Take the stress of planning away and let Isha Foss Events handle all the details. Pamper your bridal party at The Look Salon and Day Spa. Register—or shop!—for fine china and heirloom gifts at 18th Century Merchant.

Allergen-free bakery, Carolina Cupcakery, ensures your nephew’s peanut allergy will not upstage the bride. And a bevy of photographers are on hand to capture all the beautiful memories so you can look back at them for years to come.

These are just a few of the local Chesapeake wedding vendors ready to help make your big day a standout success.
