Hampton Roads- Outdoor venue


   I think we've decided to have an outdoor reception.  Has anyone in Hampton Roads had one?  Any good suggestions for locations?  We're seriously considering the Hermitage.  If anyone has been to or had their wedding there I'd love to hear about it (good and bad!).  Thanks :)

    I don't know anything about the Hermitage, but we are having our ceremony at the Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, and our reception aboard the Spirit of Norfolk. The Spirit also does weddings on their third deck that's outside, it's really beautiful! And their price includes the food, tables, chairs, basic white linens, DJ, and a cash bar!

    Everything I've heard about the Hermitage is great.  It's a GORGEOUS setting.  A little steep on price though- you have to rent everything (tent, etc) and our wedding was going to be in September when it can be pretty hot so I didn't want to have it there.  We're doing an outdoor ceremony (short) at the botanical gardens and an indoor reception in Va Beach.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the Hermitage.  The other thing we didn't like was that you had to be "quiet" by like 10:15 pm or something.  Check out the pricing for it.  The logistics can be a little hard since the caterer you get has to set up their own stuff too.  No one's allowed inside the actual Hermitage building.

    Do you have any idea the cost?  I looked on their website and haven't found any prices.

    The price depends on how many people you are having.  Also, everything else is separate (tent, china, catering, linens, lighting, etc.)
