Why We Like This Place

5 Reasons why the Norfolk Botanical Garden makes a stunning Virginia wedding venue:
1. Their outdoor wedding site, the Renaissance Court, is popular for good reason: Its stone structures and meticulous landscaping echo a classic Italian Renaissance style—and can accommodate up to 400 of your closest friends.
2. Towering oaks in the Bristow Butterfly Garden amply shade your guests, while you say your vows beneath a trellis in view of Lake Whitehurst.
3. Baker Hall’s soaring façade invites guests inside, and they’ll want to linger on the well-lit patio that overlooks the Perennial Garden.
4. The Garden Cafe provides views of the manicured Japanese garden, and is perfect for smaller events.
5. Intimate ceremonies can take place at one of 40 themed gardens throughout the site’s 155 acres.
