Your wedding will be a personal expression of who you are as a couple. It will be a joining of your families, a mingling of your lives, and a celebration of your love. Your perfect day needs a perfect setting. Welcome to Harbour View.
Harbour View, a contemporary waterfront event venue in northern Virginia, can accommodate ceremonies from 10 to up to 250 guests and receptions from 10 to 320. The venue is divided among several versatile spaces to make your day flow beautifully.
The first floor open-air Veranda is a fully covered space, open on one side to the charming Occoquan River. With the flexibility to make the outdoors a part of your celebration—without worrying about the weather—the Veranda is the perfect place to exchange your vows. Our ceremony package includes everything you need: white padded wedding chairs, a white wedding arch, and your choice of white or red aisle runner. We even line the entire space with billowing white curtains to create the perfect romantic ambiance for your momentous occasion.
Directly down the hall from the Veranda is the lovely Stateroom, our private preparation suite complete with dressing alcove, private restroom, and seating area with plenty of space for you and your attendants to get ready and take time to relax before the ceremony. Use of the Stateroom is complementary with your ceremony package.
The River Room
For smaller, more intimate receptions of up to 40 guests, the River Room is ideal. A wall of windows give an uninterrupted view of the river—sure to delight—and the room opens onto a private and peaceful patio for relaxing conversation. The River Room is also a perfect choice for small ceremonies, bridal showers, and rehearsal dinners.
On the second floor you enter the Gallery: a wide open space with hardwood floors and a wall of windows overlooking the entrance. Brimming with “wow-factor,” this space is ideal for your cocktail hour or pre-reception mingle. While you take advantage of the many photographic opportunities throughout the marina and venue grounds, your guests will enjoy refreshments served from a custom bar, nibble on delectable hors d’oeuvres, and share laughter and good conversation.
From the Gallery, you can enter either one of the two main reception areas: Sewall’s Point Ballroom or Hutchinson Room. The neutral décor of the ballrooms means that your reception theme and carefully planned decorations will take center stage—though the rooms are so beautiful you’ll find they need little decoration. These elegant spaces are lined with huge windows overlooking the river and marina below. Surrounding the ballrooms is a spacious balcony, so your guests can step out to enjoy the view and the cool river breezes.
The charming cobblestone parking lot, flagstone walkways, and beautifully landscaped grounds will steal your heart, and Harbour View’s legendary service will ease your mind. Our mission is to take the stress out of planning, so you can focus on enjoying the first day of the rest of your life. Our friendly and dedicated team of event coordinators will make vendor recommendations, advise you throughout your planning process, and will be on-site from the time your first vendor arrives until the last of your happy guests leaves. Everyone deserves a fairy tale. Begin your happily ever after at Harbour View.
Happy Engagement! We are available for tours weekdays, day and evening, as well as Saturdays and Sundays depending on our event schedule. We look forward to meeting you!
Harbour View is my favorite venue to host events. As a corporate event manager, I find the staff incredibly helpful and professional.
You exceeded my expectations! Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was worth every dollar!
I can honestly say that I would not have done anything differently! It was an amazing day! From the day I signed the contract to my wedding, everything was perfect!
Everything and everyone associated with Harbour View was outstanding.
Everything was perfect. The staff was able to help me bring together my daughter’s sweet 16 and made it awesome.
Beautiful venue, and extremely helpful and pleasant staff. I thought we were just renting a location, but the staff went to extraordinary lengths to help with coordination of vendors and setup of the reception. Perfectly magical event!
The room looked absolutely beautiful. Everything went so very well, you and your staff were wonderful!
Such a beautiful location. I did not use a wedding planner, and I didn’t need one thanks to the wonderful people at Harbour View. With their help my day went off without a hitch. Any assistance I needed, even if it wasn’t venue related, they were more than happy to help me. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
Harbour View is amazing; from the facilities to their staff. They were so wonderful to work with and made the process of planning my wedding a breeze.
Everything went very well. We got lots of positive feedback about the location and space from our clients.
