Harbour View Brings the Water to You!
You wanted a beach wedding, but Grandma won’t be able to travel. You can’t imagine not having Grandma at your wedding. So, what do you do now?
While a destination wedding may not be feasible for the entire family, don’t give up. Harbour View and Caribbean Caterers can bring the beach wedding to you!
With the beautiful boardwalk available for photos, and the backdrop of the shimmering river in the foreground, which you can view from the venue’s veranda, Harbour View presents a scene reminiscent of the beach wedding you’ve always wanted – and with all your friends and family there!
Harbour View has a unique feature that wins rave reviews from Brides and Grooms who have different ideas for what they want out of their wedding. You simply need to see it to believe it.
Imagine feeling like you’re outside, enjoying an outdoor ceremony overlooking the river, but you’re actually indoors the entire time. Harbour View cleverly uses its space to provide an area that is covered, yes, but not completely enclosed. So while you feel like you’re outside, you can clearly see that you’re inside.
The beauty of this is that you can remain cool, dry, and collected indoors without ever needing to worry about whether rain or other inclement weather will impact your day.
You’ll never have to flip a room from the ceremony to the reception on account of bad weather. And you’ll never have to compromise on your ceremony plans or professional photos. Harbour View’s enclosed area is closed on two sides and opens on two sides, so you get the beauty of the river and the outdoors alongside the comfort of the indoors, all at once!
In addition to the veranda, this area is the perfect combination of enjoying the fresh air while also being able to duck inside to the main room when necessary.
Grand Formal Ballroom
They say the best things come in small packages, but that is not true when it comes to grand ballrooms. Harbour View’s grand formal ballroom is located on the upper level, with window walls on two sides. These window walls give you gorgeous views of the river and the marina with its bobbing yachts, which provides your event with a true beach theme.
We at Caribbean Caterers can also work with you on selecting an elegant shade of drapes for the ballroom to provide a more romantic, intimate feel. That’s right – we do more than just Harbour View wedding catering!
Working together, Caribbean Caterers and Harbour View provide you with so many options and amenities that it is impossible to feel disappointed. Harbour View will even help you select uplighting in whatever color you like so that you do not need to concern yourself with hiring another vendor to uplight the room for the ultimate ambiance.
The grand ballroom also boasts hardwood dance floors inlaid right in the middle of the carpeted room. So you do not need to hire another vendor to bring in a dance floor because it’s right there at your venue. Heck, you don’t even need to leave the ballroom, since the dance floor is right smack in the middle of it!
For a nominal fee, Harbour View can also help you add some beautiful Chiavari chairs to your dinner reception that appropriately match your decor. These are already on site as well, so you do not need to factor in yet another outside vendor, who would charge four to five times more for the same amenity plus exorbitant delivery fees.
At most weddings, and in most venues, the ballroom is where the venue begins and ends for their guests’ special day – but not here at Harbour View!
In addition to the aforementioned amenities that Harbour View has to offer, they also provide props, which are available on the premises to spice up your wedding photos. Imagine having the marina in the background, and everyone sporting sailor gear in your photos!
The Bride and her attendants can also enjoy the comfortable bridal suite, where they can change their clothes and get ready for the reception. It also provides a remote area wherein the Bride and Groom can spend a quiet moment to catch their breaths before they rejoin their guests.
There is also a spacious foyer area wherein Woodbridge’s Harbour View houses the bar, photo booth, candy station, and activities area. Caribbean Caterers is happy to host your cocktail reception or after-dinner activities here in the foyer, should you choose to take advantage of it for your special day.
And here’s the real sweet spot of Harbour View’s amenities: there is onsite parking, and it’s free. All your guests have to worry about is finding hotels near Harbour View in Woodbridge, VA – and if you need help with that, just ask!
If you have a larger group of attendees at your wedding, Harbour View also provides a sizeable yet quiet room, the Hutchinson Room, where you can extend your cocktail reception. There are many ways that Harbour View and Caribbean Caterers can comfortably cater your cocktail reception.
And here is one of our guests’ favorite packages that we offer at Harbour View: If you do not need the larger room for your cocktail reception, then you can use it as a room for the children at your event. All you need to do is enlist a nanny to watch the children, and Caribbean Caterers will provide them with a kids’ menu filled with kid-happy choices to please any palate.
What’s great about this service is that, not only do the parents at your wedding not have to worry about hiring a babysitter, but you can also enjoy your adult reception while the kids are entertained close by. This is another wonderful feature that we at Caribbean Caterers provide as part of our Harbour View wedding catering service.
