There is no denying that I am a sucker for outdoor weddings. Something about the fresh air and natural lighting feels incredibly romantic to me. While some people may be hesitant to commit to an outdoor wedding due to the unpredictable nature of the weather, I have selected a few lovely venues that cater to both outdoor and indoor preferences.


Lewis Ginter Botantical Gardens

If you're looking for a whimsical garden setting, Lewis Ginter is the perfect venue! With three reception options and enchanting outdoor or indoor ceremony spaces, your wedding vision can come alive during any month of the year. Being surrounded by blooming peonies and roses creates a romantic atmosphere.


Tuckahoe Plantation

This exclusively outdoor venue is all inclusive. With a ceremony site, three different reception locations to choose from, ample amount of parking, plenty of restrooms, and private use of the property, Tuckahoe Plantation is the perfect historic location to meet both your creative vision and budget goals. Events of all sizes flow beautifully whether it be your wedding, reception, rehearsal dinner, wedding shower, or a combination.


The Market at Grelen

Offering gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this 600-acre tree nursery is a charming destination offering a variety of spaces that are flexible to meet your specific needs. Between their greenhouse, Half Moon garden, stone terrace, and berry field, your wedding is sure to be full of natural beauty.



Ideal for your ceremony, reception, or both, this equisite Victorian mansion and lavish estate provides a vast assortment of gardens to pick from. The Japanese Garden is my personal favorite, as it features a stunning waterfall and intertwining pathways that create an intimate and serene setting. Maymont even offers carriage rides for the bride to the ceremony site.


Norfolk Botanical Garden

Encompassed by water and lovely blooms, there are thirteen extravagant outdoor locations to pick from. Likewise, there are plenty of indoor settings in case there is rain on your big day. You will be surrounded by beautiful gardens, forests, lakes, and lavish fountains as you say "I do." There is no denying that Norfolk Botantical Garden is one of Coastal Virginia's most exceptional wedding venues.


Inn at Willow Grove

The winner of numerous pretigious awards, the Inn at Willow Grove deserves its positive reputation of offering accommodating personal service and refined venues. A magical wedding weekend is in store for all who book through this stunning venue. The gracious staff adds personal touches to each space, giving you a spellbinding atmosphere to create cherished memories.
